    Pros

    Seemingly high hourly rate. They do have fairly inexpensive benefits.

    Cons

    They make the cashiers do EVERYTHING. They time EVERY move you make during the course of your shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the customers instead of acting like you do, then not listening to their complaints.

    Most of these glowing reviews have to be phony! Not one person I work with thinks this a great job.

    Pros

    The only thing good about this job is the pay, but look out because Wal Mart and Hobby Lobby are catching up.

    Cons

    This company will break your back as you will always work short handed with no breaks ever. There will never be more than 3 people working at a time. Aldi does not care about their people at all only the money. They will break your spirit, run away fast , it is not worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some basic human decency, employees are not machines, we all need a break. We can not work 8 to 10 hours with no break, it is inhumane.

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

    Pros

    At Aldi you work with a team of people that are the best of the best, so no more picking up other peoples slack. The company takes excellent care of its people when it comes to pay, benefits, and treating you well. Aldi is a very solid company as well and will be around for a long time. Aldi has a very flat structure which means promotions increase pay by large amounts, information travels fast, and each person matters more to the team. The best part of Aldi is the people, once you are past the training stage you look around and realize that every person in the company is not only hard working and caring, but also in general just great people to spend your time with. At Aldi, challenging tasks are taken on by teams like a game because they all have fun doing it and a sense of group pride when it is over.

    Cons

    Aldi only has cons if you are not the right type of person to work there. Like I said, Aldi is the best of the best, so that means that you have work very hard to get up to par. Aldi gives you excellent training to get there, but prepare yourself to work harder than you ever have during your first year there. After your first year, you become much more efficient and are no longer working with the best, you are the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue supporting new staff, with very exiting expansions going on, new hires are going to continue being vital to the company. An extra focus on training (without hitting spmh) would help support new hires as they adjust to the Aldi pace and ultimately reduce turnover and increase operational skills of the staff.

    I have been working at ALDI full-time

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are excellent compared to similar jobs in that industry. Advancement is easy with some seriously hard work and attention to detail. No politics when it comes to advancement just good old fashion hard work and I'm glad because I have no idea how to schmooze and have no desire to. I've seen people promoted in their early 20's here for store management positions and i've also seen a turn around time of 2 years or less for store managers and that salary is not far off from what a Phd would make with 8-12yrs of schooling.

    Cons

    Now for the bad news, which i'm happy to say isn't that bad. You are working hard. Some jobs will have a janitor, a number of sales associates, stockers, assistant manager and supervisors on staff in one shift. You are all those things. Even though ALDI is known for allowing it's employees to sit down and ring customers up please do not believe for a second that this is going to be the norm. Aldi is in the midst of change and the challenge of having minimal bodies and a crap load of work is changing, among other things, so the future looks much brighter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are already working on those aspects of store operations that I find to be problematic. But thx for bringing more people aboard.

    Think twice before leaving another job to work for Aldi!

    I worked at ALDI

    Pros

    The pay is good if you are a store manager or manager trainee...otherwise the $12 an hour wage for the cashier position is not worth all of the manual labor.

    Cons

    The nice pay is not worth the sheer hell this company puts its employees through! You are ALWAYS understaffed and expected to do the job of several employees. You are never given any positive feedback and no matter how hard you work it's never good enough. Upper mgmt allows other employees to harass and mistreat new employees and does nothing about it other than tell you "it's a tough training program". Worse workplace harassment I have ever dealt with. I'm shocked they aren't being sued left and right for a hostile work environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints seriously from employees when it involves a hostile work environment...you are setting yourself up for a lawsuit. Especially when the employee knows that this type of work environment is illegal and keeps a daily journal of events like I have.
