    I have been working at ALDI

    Pros

    great pay and benifits. off every major holiday. constintly busy. ive read alot of the comments on here about how aldi is a horrible place to work amd all. but i beg to differ when in my interveiw i was told exactly what this job intels which is being a cashier, janitor, stocker, basically everything. and i love it there is aleays something to do and your never left just standing there twidling your thumbs. this job is not for everyone you have to be willing to push youself and do what needs done. if ya cant hack it dont take the job but i lovr it. yes you have to be able to throw a pallet in 20 minutes its not hard yes yoy have to check not hard

    Cons

    moving up from shift manager to manager in training is hard. the way the pallets come in from the warehouse are very frustrating sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    considering hiring upper managment such as store managers and managers in training from within the store first before hiring off the street. as a shift manager its very annoying when you are having to train someone who is above you for a job you know how to do

    Pros

    Pay and health/dental/ vision benefits

    Cons

    Management was never on the same page. Someone would not order items and take it out on employees. Managers (one in question at my store) wouldn't work during their shift and instead would constantly sit in the office for hours talking on their personal cell phone. This is hard especially when you are the only other employee in the store working, usually meaning we get out of the store extremely late. Always was called on my day off to work and if I couldn't work that day due to appointments I had scheduled around days I worked I would be called into the office and told I wasn't a "team player" because I couldn't come in that day due to a doctors appointment I had requested off weeks earlier. Pay was GREAT but working with people at that store have been the worst co-workers I've ever worked with. I had put in requests to transfer to stores closer to my home and they would always be ignored. New DM's come into the store during training and pretty much look at you like you are not intelligent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire upper management from within. The thinking of "oh if we promote store managers to DM's they will be too lenient" is a total crock. Stores would run more smoothly without alot of bumps in the road and communication issues (..um..isn't that what you "strive" for anyway?) if they promoted from within from people who actually KNOW how a store runs at all times and knows how to do the job? Your thinking and always wanting to do things in a timely manner doesn't reflect that thinking in the ways you hire upper management. It would be nice to have a DM where you felt understood more of what goes on in the store and stresses instead of some 23 year old coming in to make changes.
