Having just attended a Manager Trainee Hiring Event in September 2018, I thought I could add some input. I arrived at the event, found the room of suits (which was great because that is how you should always dress for an interview) and was greeted by an older gentleman. This man invited me in, asked if I had scheduled an appointment or was there because of the job posting. Once we established how I came to attend, he handed me an Aldi portfolio with information I had already procured from hours of online and in store research. When I was finished reading the material, the man sat me down at a table, asked for my application package and gave me the rundown on who they were, what they did for Aldi, what the hiring and denial process was and informed me that I would hear back within 48 hours if they were interested. I was not interviewed or even given an opportunity to speak. This is a screening process just to see if you are serious enough to appear to the hiring event and to check your qualifications before scheduling an actual interview. I hope this is helpful.
Be honest. The people you interview with are going to be working closely with you, get to know them. Be a person, don't worry about being a paradigm of a perfect worker. Focus on your strengths and play them up.

Just get up and leave. Don't sign the hire paperwork. Don't accept the job. Trust me you will absolutely HATE it here! Hobestly that's my best advice, no other way I could put it so bluntly than to be real.
Be yourself. They hire from temp agencies so they 100% know you fit in with the team and they are set up for positive outcomes.

Give them a handshake at the start and be friendly (not too serious)
Dont stutter, keep calm and dont use slang words and dont look away from the managers eyes while talking.
