Store Manager

Being an Aldi Store Manager

As a Store Manager, you’ll need plenty of energy, great ideas, and a good mix of ambition and character. After all, it’s your personality that sets the tone for the whole store. It may not be easy, but you will find it rewarding. Especially when you’re responsible for everything that happens within those sliding doors. However, as someone who leads by example, you’ll take control when things get busy. It’s all about building a helpful, respectful and friendly team who can do more for customers with less.

Meet our Store Managers

Our Store Managers are often on the shop floor, very much part of the team. They are passionate about doing well and with more and more customers coming to Aldi, they're committed to making sure everyone has an amazing experience. Want to know more? Well, let our Store Managers tell you.

Application Process

Of course, it’s a little different applying to be a Store Manager. After all, you’ll be responsible for one of our most important assets – an Aldi store. However, just like for our Assistant Store Managers, there are three simple steps.

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 and Interview
Lights, camera, action. This is your golden opportunity to showcase your knowledge of Aldi and brilliant leadership skills. Next, you will be invited for an interview with an Operations Director at our Regional Distribution Centre where you'll be asked a series of questions and scenarios relating to the job role you have applied for and your previous experience.

 Aldi Experience
Following a successful interview you will be invited to take part in the 'Aldi Experience' in a store where you'll get the chance to observe the different tasks that you would be expected to complete in role.
