    Pros

    Management is almost all promoted up from within, so they have a deep respect for employees. This translates to good pay from day 1, a benefits plan that follows not too long after that, and a clear division of work and life. My particular store was 100% female run from district manager all the way down to team members, which was very cool.

    Although my tenure was short for personal reasons, this was by far and away the best retail job I've ever had, and I actively recommend to friends looking for retail work to apply at Aldi.

    Cons

    If you're not in decent physical shape when you start as a team member, you're going to be sore for awhile. Customers can be taxing, but that comes with any retail job.

    Pros

    The shifts fly by; there's always something to do; it's like getting a paid workout; compensation starts out higher than average; excellent benefits; excellent upward mobility

    Cons

    If one person doesn't do their job, everything falls apart and you end up doing 50% more than usual; since there's usually only three people at the store per shift, one person calling out is a huge deal; it's difficult to fire incompetent workers; management rarely documents any problems with employees, making it even harder to fire people; chain of command breaks down if just one person is unwilling to deal with problems efficiently

    Advice to Management

    Respond more to issues with employees' performance and don't be so afraid of losing people; make sure all managers are trained on paperwork, disciplinary steps, and payroll

    Pros

    When i was looking for a job, I wanted something that I could go into work everyday and walk out knowing that i worked as hard as possible and made every dime of the money I made for that day. I am the type of person that wants to be moving around and working as much as possible, and this is the perfect job for me!

    Cons

    The only downside about working there I thought were the long shift hours. You could be there from anywhere from 6-10 scheduled hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    If you like a job were dm's never have anything positive to say to you. They always put you down. Pay is good but benefits went down hill

    Cons

    Dm's, directors, and vice presidents don't care about there employees all they care about is sales. They always tell management and cashiers you are always replaceable no matter how good of a job you do. The turn over is so high because they want to keep payroll down and replace them with people making less. They don't care about customer service because they have no staff on to help anyone, that is why customers stand in long lines.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management above store manager learn how to run a company and get a life. U are all robots
