    I worked at ALDI part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Pay was half decent
    - Guaranteed hours each month

    Cons

    - Long hours
    - Expected to always be free outside of work so you can pick up other people's shifts
    - If you take a sick day, you can expect to have future shifts cut as punishment, which can sometimes result in you not meeting your minimum contract hours, and then you owe the company money (time) the following month.
    - Management isn't very supportive if you need more experience in certain areas of your work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with staff rostering. Not everyone wants to give up their lives outside of work just to they are available to work when you need them.
