I worked at ALDI full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pay, benefits. Excellent pay, much more than other companies, but hides the fact that they work you to death and expect the world of you.

Cons

Everything else. Extremely physical job, regardless of position. No time for breaks in this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Store managers: you have the title of manager for a reason. If you are not sure what it means, LOOK IT UP!!! District Managers, you young kids are all book trained and never really see what is happening in the stores. Open your eyes and pay attention to the people who are actually doing the work in the stores. Stop playing games.

    I have been working at ALDI full-time

    Pros

    -Good health benefits.
    -Many holidays off such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter (not paid, but closed), Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day
    -3 sick days every year
    -3 personal days every year
    -Vacation days increase with time employed

    Cons

    -Higher management (district managers and operations managers) treat lower management (store managers and RS managers) very poorly.
    -Unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Treat employees better, especially store managers.
    -Start a profit sharing incentive to run stores better. Better bonuses (available to all store employees at some percentage, varying based on positions) make better managers.
    -Either pay overtime to salaried management (who are expected to do as much physical labor as all other employees) or reduce the amount of physical labor for salaried management.
    -Be more flexible in policies regarding work/life balance and management schedule.
