Frequently asked questions
Made it this far and still have some questions? Here’s a list of FAQ and, of course, the answers to them! If something still remains open, you are welcome to use our contact form.
We don’t offer a trainee programme in IT. However, you can learn more about ALDI SOUTH IT in other ways – with an internship in the International IT, for example. There’s also the option to complete your Bachelor or Master’s thesis in the IT department. We regularly look for working students, too. And if you have already graduated, you can get stuck right in! But fear not, there’s a several-week induction period in the various departments first. The best thing about that is that you get to know our different areas and new colleagues. All while earning a full salary, of course.
We have a variety of vacancies, so there’s bound to be one that suits you. Of course, we also keep the big picture in mind and, with your permission, will forward your application to colleagues who are advertising other suitable positions.
We gladly provide this option. Just use our job advertisement for an “IT Intern”. Be sure to mention the exact time period in which your internship semester should take place. If you already know which department or area you’d be interested in, then feel free to share this with us.
Use the search function to find the perfect job for you. Apply directly online using our application form. Check that you have provided all the documents required. We need your CV, a copy of your leaving certificate of the highest educational level completed (secondary school qualifications, certificate of completion of apprenticeship and/or university studies, any employer references and certificates), ideally together in one PDF document. We’ll check all your documents and get back to you as soon as possible. If your expectations match ours, we’ll invite you to an interview so that we can get to know you better.
If you want to apply for several vacancies, you will need to submit your documents separately for each one. However, you’ll only need one applicant profile. Once you have registered, you can apply for any and as many of the vacancies as you like. This way we can ensure that your application will be forwarded directly to the appropriate ALDI SOUTH employee.
No, that is not necessary. You are welcome to submit your application in German. This will not have an effect on the rest of the application process.
You’ll receive an automatic confirmation from us as soon as we receive your application documents. Please wait a few minutes before you check your inbox. Be sure to also check your spam folder, just in case. You’ll then be able to check the current status of your application in your personal user profile.
Generally speaking, our HR department will contact you as soon as possible to discuss the next steps. We will take an in-depth look at your application and, if your profile does not match our position, you will receive an e-mail informing you that your application was unsuccessful, bringing the application process to an end.
Congratulations! We were impressed by your application and would like to get to know you better! In order to make a first impression, we would like to invite you to an initial virtual meeting with one of our recruiters. The next step after this is an interview with the department. The aim of the face-to-face interview is to find out whether we are suited to each other. There’s no need to worry – the atmosphere is very friendly, relaxed and based on mutual appreciation.
After the interview, we will be happy to reimburse the travel costs from your place of residence (i.e. the address stated in your application documents) to our office in Mülheim as follows: if you travel by public transport, we will reimburse the cost of a second class rail ticket (there and back) upon presentation of proof. For journeys with your own car, we will reimburse you a flat rate of EUR 0.30 per kilometre travelled (there and back) for a single journey of 25km or more. If your journey is longer and requires a flight booking and/or accommodation, please coordinate this with us in advance.
Changed your mind or perhaps you’ve already found another position in the meantime? That’s a shame! But it’s not a problem. You can withdraw your application via your personal applicant account. If you’re already further in the application process, please contact the respective contact person from HR.
Even in times of the corona pandemic, we continue to conduct job interviews and hire new colleagues. After you submitted your application, we will inform you as soon as possible about the next steps. Most job interviews take place digitally via video conference. Everything was right and you start with us? Whether and how often you come to the office is handled individually thanks to our FutureWork concept. In coordination with the team and your direct leader and depending on the occasion, you decide on the number of days in the office. In the office, we always follow the legal requirements for corona protection.
