Pros

The starting wage is above industry standard.

Cons

More times than not did not get scheduled breaks. Stores are horrendously understaffed yet management sends workers home if store targeted sales per hour fall short. Travel 40 minutes to get to work for a 5 hour shift and get sent home after 3 hours. Training, particularly on the non register equipment is not sufficient.

Advice to Management

Too much emphasis on speed of checkout (number of items per minute). Customers do not like to be rushed. To many of your elderly customers, this is their "day out" and should be an enjoyable activity. Taking a few seconds to smile and say hello means so much to them. Don't criticize and reprimand your workers for treating customers like they are important and welcome.

  2. Aldi is a great company that is only expanding. Advancement opportunity is a little limited but benefits & pay are fair.

    Pros

    Aldi has a very good benefits program, excellent cashier starting pay, and good leadership

    Cons

    Regardless of the position you work there it is a very physical job in a high stress environment.

    Advice to Management

    Management should refrain from reprimanding employees in front of customers and be more understanding of customer needs and wants.
