    Pros

    You will work with nice and hard working people. The pay is good as everyone knows, because of the hard work you put in to fit Aldi's requirements.

    Cons

    No training. Aldi throws you into the deep end.

    Dull.

    6 am starts with a requirement of pushing out 6 mixes.

    Heavy lifting. It is a physically demanding job.

    Customers. Rude customers because they are unhappy about bag checks.

    Provide training and support.
