    Best salary, work life balance, training, great leaders & team members to work with.

    lifting of heavy crates most of the time in day to day job give injuries you carry on for life time. less of hrs in each stores pushes you physically to work twice your capacity which is not good on daily basis.

    "Good company to work for but hard to progress"

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

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. If you find a store with a positive culture you will be asked to work really hard and in return you are rewarded with average pay but stability though part time employment. If you enjoy working hard, organising, merchandising and providing customer service, you will get good satisfaction from this work.

    Cons

    Shifts vary and you are required to be fully flexible to meet the company needs between 6am-9pm 7 days a week. Most managers are not happy to support sporting commitments, University or extra-curricular activities so it can make it hard to have positive work/ life balance.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at ALDI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *Good pay *Alot of support from higher management - area managers and above *Team bonding *Days go very fast!

    Cons

    *physically demanding *alot of competition amongst assistant managers wanting to move to store management role *the region that I work in seems better than the other regions - there is definitely a push towards having good culture in store, staff happiness, roster fairness, work life balance etc. However this still comes down to store managers implenting these things and unfortunately there are still a few out there that don't care about that.
