Featured Review

Former Employee - Deputy Store Manager

I worked at ALDI part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible company, would always accomodate changing schedules and limited roster workers. Excess of opportunity to move into management position within stores.

Cons

Upper management (out of stores) are a bit out of touch with the daily requirements in store. Some stores would struggle to deliver what management required despite best efforts, as staffing budget... is highly constrained.

Advice to Management

Management are great, but need to get out in the stores more to understand how difficult the job can be.
