Assistant Store Manager

Being an Aldi Assistant Store Manager

We love our customers at Aldi. Which is why we’re passionate about being friendly, helpful, and treating everyone with respect. But we’re also super efficient – doing more for our customers with less. So managing an Aldi store is a bit different. When things get tough (which they will), you’ll take control and get fast, impressive results through your team. And you’ll always lead by example - rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done.

Meet our Assistant Store Managers

Our Assistant Store Managers might be ‘second in charge’, but they’re so much more. They help set the tone of the store, and come with bags of grit and stamina. So no matter what the day brings, they put every customer first to ensure they have the best Aldi experience. How? Well, find out from some of our Assistant Store Managers by watching their videos.

Application Process

Lots of people have managed others in the past. But it’s a bit different at Aldi. Not only do we strive to give customers the best experience around – we do it with less. So we make sure that you’re ready for us, and that we’re right for you. Which is why we have a simple, but thorough, three-step application process.


Online Application
Practical questions such as ‘what’s your preferred location?’ will be followed by a more interactive style of test designed to assess your judgement, commercial decision-making and problem-solving skills.


Video Application
Lights, camera, action. This is your golden opportunity to showcase your knowledge of Aldi and brilliant leadership skills.


You’ll be invited to an interview with a Store Operations Director at the nearest Regional Distribution Centre. After that you’ll take part in the ‘Aldi Experience’, where you’ll get the chance to observe the different tasks you would be expected to complete in the role.
