Efficiency Standards do not keep up with company growth - Demand For Store Managers can be too much at times
Advice to Management
Overall I felt like my experience at Aldi was a generally positive one. There were two major concerns that caused me to leave though. The first was their desire to keep efficiency standards the same... & expect performance to be as if they were a company that does 30%-40% less in sales as they were before remodeling and the companies sizeable growth, but still expected me to keep hours low for full time employees, which causes burnout and kills morale. I understand the company was built on the concept of efficiency standards, but I felt like the SM needs more flexibility to handle the increased administrative/HR demands and overall running the store than being expected to act as an associate a lot of the times as well. I do not believe that a SM can't do those things, but I felt like there was a lot of increase for non-floor duties during my last few months, but also having the same expectations and sometimes to do more on the sales floor, which made it increasingly more difficult to balance home and work life. The second was advancement opportunities for Store Managers. Even though I have over a decade of retail management experience, with roughly a year of Multi-Unit experience, I was told that I could never be at the District Level or higher because I did not have a Bachelors Degree, which, in all my years in retail, it's a rare requirement for someone to have that, especially if they are being promoted from within. I was informed that if I wanted to move up, I either needed to finish my degree (which, with working 50-60 hours a week, plus have 3 teenagers, who has time for that) or I could work my way up at the warehouse, which to be honest, I found somewhat offensive because it stated to me that since I lacked education, I was only good enough to be a floor/warehouse worker, but not corporate. I think by taking a look at the overall model for advancement and opening the door for Store Managers who have the experience and skills to have opportunities to become DMs or above would definitely be a positive thing and it would have caused me to stay.
