AlDI

Our record of success is only matched by your potential for it.

As an ALDI District Manager, you’ll start with a year of training, work with a great team and manage millions in sales. You’ll also drive a company provided car, either an Audi A3 or BMW X1 (depending on availability), and earn $80,000 to start plus a $5,000 signing bonus, with the potential to earn $110,000 in five years.

But it’s not all about what we can offer you. First and foremost in this role, you’ll lead. You’ll lead in the way you show your team, your stores and your customers what it means to work with passion and integrity. You’ll lead by putting their needs first, facilitating collaboration at every turn and sharing your drive for success. You’ll work hard and we’ll help you sustain a level of performance higher than you ever thought possible.

If you’re ready to join a company whose plans for the future are as ambitious as yours, consider ALDI.

Roles and responsibilities

As a District Manager,

you’ll oversee an ALDI district which could include up to six stores. After a year of training, you’ll work hand in hand with your Store Managers to guide and manage the operations of an entire district. This means you’ll have the opportunity to influence every aspect of your stores in your district — from projecting staff needs and inventory, to long-term planning and motivating your team — all while making a true impact on ALDI’s success, your district’s success and your own success.

Here are a few of your responsibilities:

  • Manage millions of dollars in business across your district
  • Frequently walk the floors of your stores with the Store Managers, encouraging and coaching your team and talking directly with customers
  • Keeping store leadership focused on meeting ALDI’s goals and big picture objectives
  • Work with your team of managers to oversee customer service, staffing, development, training, inventory, budgets and revenue controls for up to six stores in your district
  • Set ambitious standards for every member of your team to deliver superior customer service at every turn
  • Maintain high ethical standards and live ALDI’s values in everything you do
  • Fuel our company growth by opening new and remodeled ALDI stores
  • Help ALDI remain an industry leader

We'll prepare you for everything.

Our ALDI District Manager program starts with 51 weeks of training that will do more than introduce you to the role. We’ll immerse you in our culture and values while you gain the tools you’ll need to thrive as a District Manager. The training program was named Best in Class by ERE, the premier source for information in the HR and recruiting industry.

A key part of the training will be your Peer Advisor. Along with being a one-on-one mentor, your Peer Advisor will walk you through the training process, showing you how to succeed in the role and helping you build a dependable support system as you work through the training.
