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 (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Days fly by, even when they are 12-16 hour days.
    All major holidays off, although not all paid.
    Your 1040 looks nice, until you divide your pay by actual hours worked.

    Cons

    AS A STORE MANAGER
    Unrealistic expectations
    Minimal staffing
    Extremely physical and demanding
    A thankless job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    District manager, let the Store Manager BE the Store Manager. Stop micro managing and maybe throw in a compliment every few months or so. If sales, productivity and store conditions are great, don't stop me from doing my work to point out a dust bunny behind some shelving.

    I have been working at ALDI part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, and an efficient management system.

    Cons

    The policies in place are great and fair in theory, however are not always followed or enforced as they should be. There can be a lack of communication between management and employees as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure policies are being followed and there is fairness in the workplace. Increase communication with employees.
