    Current Employee - Store Manager
    Current Employee - Store Manager

    I have been working at ALDI full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great! They would be hard to match in a similar retail environment. The pay is also substantial for the positions. The culture of each store is very different but ours is awesome. I feel like I go to work with close friends and family on a daily basis and we always strive to have fun while getting our job done.

    Cons

    Work/life balance for a Manager is almost non-existent. We are salaried employees at 50 hours with no overtime (loop hole for "executive" employees). We are definitely not executive employees, and you will always put in more than 50 hours per week. You are also on-call 24/7 for any type of an "emergency". This leaves little time for family, friends, hobbies, etc. There are little to no opportunities to move up within the company. They do not have a hire from within culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give qualified employees the chance to move up within the company. They know your company, and are loyal to it. You should be the same way towards them.
