    I worked at ALDI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall great company to work for if you're ready to work! They compensate their people very well; however also set the bar of expectation really high. If you're ready for challenging and rewarding career then Aldi is your company. District Manager perks--flexible scheduling, company car, bonus structure, fantastic insurance cell phone, you name it and Aldi has the best around!

    Cons

    As a District Manager you're on call 24/7 and the job expectation is beyond perfection. Very difficult to feel satisfied in this position because you're best is never enough. Hard work, dedication and hours will get you promoted.

    I worked at ALDI full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and that is all pretty much I can say

    Cons

    Once you are employed by aldi you can forget about having a social life or a good home work balance . Schedule is bad will never have a weekend off unless your on vacation. You can try to ask for it off but good luck with that your only allowed to ask for two days off a month. Upper management (district manager) lack experience and are not people persons I guess they didn't learn how to speak to people at college. Shift manager pay is a joke you will only get paid the manager premium when your store manager or manager in training is gone for the day or they are off, but you are still require to perform the work (at cashier pay)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management with experience not kids

    Pros

    really nothing good to say

    Cons

    the way they think they own you when they hire you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really need to have real management run the company, having inexperienced graduates running their districts is a joke. they have no idea how to run a real company or even talk to their staff.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment helps the days pass, Smaller staff and helps build strong teamwork and accountability. Great starting salary and benefits. New stores continue to open allowing for growth.

    Cons

    Very high stress, and company culture asks that you are always available regardless of days or time off. Extremely high expectations often result in longer then scheduled days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can be slow to promote. And frequent upper management turnover make the environment unstable at times
