    I have been working at ALDI as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Really good pay. Very young crowd of people from the district managers to the directors, made me feel comfortable as a college intern. In store part of internship was both interesting and helpful to understanding the company and position.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance, was working 55-60 hours per week on salary. Had to drive a TON and wasn't reimbursed for gas. Full-time DMs get their own company car in which gas is free and even store employees are paid mileage to travel to different stores and help out... not sure why we got the short end of the stick here. Got stuck with an awful DM as my "peer advisor" and this is what turned me off completely to the company/position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate who you are giving the peer advisor positions to a little further. Pay interns mileage or give them a gas gift card at the end of the internship. Try to work on work-life balance a little better.

    An okay job, but I'd leave in a heartbeat if I found a job with the same pay rate.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and co-workers are really nice.

    Cons

    No opportunity for career growth at all, non-management is treated like workhorses and not respected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the people who do the most work by promoting from within and embrace the younger generation's culture.

    I have been working at ALDI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great, and the benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Very though physical days, long hours and always feel behind. Over the years the workload has increased without the proper adjustment of labor allowed to get the job done. The company is crawling out of its niche trying to compete with the upper level grocery stores of larger size. They have lost the philosophy of the brothers who started the company. Their sales are doing very well but the company has high turnover and will continue to do so unless it starts to value tenured employees who have been doing a good job and give the labor needed to meet their new standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to give the labor necessary to allow people to do the job right. Also learn to treat them well to keep morale up.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great

    Cons

    Though the pay is great the hours aren't. The amount of employees hours the store is given depends on the productivity of your store. If the store is going through a slow period. Your hours will drastically be affected. Also you are considered an associate so as an associate you do anything and everything to keep the store going. You just don't sit there and cashier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to modernize the technology that the stores use.
