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

    Pros

    30 minute break, finishing my shift, quitting.

    Cons

    Little opportunities for advancement, incompetence among Store Managers and Area Managers, some stupid rules and unreasonable deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff a little more - train them up and help them get to where they want to go. Maybe then the sick leave and turnover rates would drop.

    I have been working at ALDI part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay Good hours Great benefits such as paid holiday.

    Cons

    Affects your health. No work life balance Managers disrespect employees Unfair treatment by managers to the employees

    Advice to Management

    Please learn to respect your staff cause they are the ones who contribute the most for your company. Secondly, learn to take the complaints seriously from the staff as the managers take advantage most of the time because the area managers always take their say seriously. Stop forcing pepper to do things they can’t and be more considerate and sensitive to your employees and their problems. The managers of ALDI... aare ruthless and don’t care about what happens to the employees it’s only about money!

    Pays above industry standard and allows for a decent amount of holiday days.

    Hard physically on the body. Shifts are between 10-12 hours with one 30min break. 5am starts or 10pm finishes. Very little chance of promotion after store management. Dead end.
