    Current Employee - Shift Manager in Pittsburgh, PA
    Current Employee - Shift Manager in Pittsburgh, PA

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

    Pros

    Good pay, but for a very good reason. Job sercurity unless you are missing money. Work days go very fast, usually not enough time or people to get done what needs to get done in a shift.

    Cons

    Work your ass off. They don't promote within unless you kiss some ass! Horrible, unrealistic expectations. No appericiation. No thank yous. Upper Management is the worst. District Managers only have to run a store for 6 weeks before getting promoted but somehow think they can tell you how to run a store, they don't have a clue!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees. We work our asses off! Give us more hours and people to run a smoother operation. Fight for us, we work hard for you work hard for us.

    Former Employee - Shift Manager in West Long Branch, NJ
    Former Employee - Shift Manager in West Long Branch, NJ

    I worked at ALDI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fantastic pay for the industry... Phenominal benefits, especially for singles. * and You never need a gym membership.

    Cons

    You'll never see more than 3 employees in the store at a time (except shift change). The work load is INCREDIBLY demanding... No way to use ladders for most of your work [hazardous]. No flexibility in schedule for family or to further education, therefore, you can never become a DM (position requires batchelor's degree)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In an economy like today's, a company such as Aldi is thriving... It is unrealistic to expect 3 or 4 people to accomplish what the demands of today's customers are. HIRE MORE EMPLOYEES. Axe the ones that cannot pull their weight.
