It seems there are only hiring events for ALDI, and very often. Based on the number of individuals I've seen attend these it seems very unlikely of receiving a call-back. Can anyone tell me why there are only hiring events and approximately how long it takes them to decide on who they want to interview after these events?

It took almost a month to go through all the interviews for being hired. I over heard the dm prepping the store manager on ways to weed out people. If you show up right when it starts, are you dressed presentable, did you bring your own application are some of the major factors that determine if you get a second interview.

Hey thanks for your question but not to sound ignorant but Aldi isn't very diverse. The hiring events are kind of a tool and strategy which they use to screen out people over or under a certain age. For example I saw several of these hiring events in my store including people from all walks of life. Most of whom gets hired at Aldi was either a) white or caucasian and/or b) there was virtually nobody past the age of maximum 30-35 hired either. These were for my store but I don't know if it is something practiced across the whole company. Based on what I saw I don't really feel like hiring events at Aldi are to diverse. If anything they kind of seem a little bit discriminatory.

The hiring events is basically a subtle method of discrimination used by Aldi to weed out people management doesn't like based only on their age or physical appearance

Probably so management can visually see everybody for themselves. And then automatically decide on the spot who they do and don't want to hire. Aldi is unique in this way, having hiring events out in public which kind of visualizes everything out in the open.

I went to one on a Friday and they said to give them until Wednesday to call you for the group interview on Thursday. I got the call on Tuesday for it. I'm not sure why they go this route though. Maybe to weed out certain types of people?
