    Pros

    The pay is definitely not enough to support a family, but it's alright for a single person. The environment is extremely fast-paced, and management can be tough, but, generally, you're treated fairly. Paid major holidays. All tasks can be completed easily if you have a strong work ethic and a sense of determination.

    Cons

    A small staff leaves little room for error. One person's mistake or tardiness with completing a task can put the entire team behind schedule for the remainder of the day. Expect extreme pressure to trickle down the ladder from VP's and District Managers straight to you. Expect your store to feature associates that barely breathe while on duty, moving from one task to another with no lull for the duration of the shift, and associates who do just enough to get by without being fired. The work of the latter will likely be sloppy if it isn't skipped entirely.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the managers get so focused on telling you what else to complete and what was done improperly/what must be fixed that they forget to applaud you on a job well done. If someone messes up, tell them of course, but positive reinforcement pushes your team to move faster.

    Pros

    Company offers Great benefits: vacation paid, sick time, paid holidays. It is fast paced and keeps you in shape; you are constantly moving.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth. If you start as a cashier you can become a shift supervisor, then you can become a manager trainee, and the last stop is store manager.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits program.

    Cons

    Extremely physical with constant lifting of up to 45 lbs anywhere from floor to above your head.

    Advice to Management

    If you just want to be a "manager" this is the wrong job for you. Aldi managers are working managers. I walk anywhere from 12-18 miles a day in a 10-12 hour shift.

    Pros

    If you are willing to put in the time, the pay is nice, but you really need to be more single to do this

    Cons

    if you want to manage people making barely above minimum wage for the rest of your life, this is the career to you

    Pros

    They pay well for the industry and the insurance/ benefit package is really nice. The scheduling is very flexible and has always accommodated my needs.

    Cons

    Some staff turnover due to strenuous pace and work volume creates heavy problems for current staff.
