How do employees feel about the referral program at ALDI?

Pros

I worked for Aldi for a couple months short of 5 years. I worked tons of overtime and all stores within the area. Hours are available if you look for them and make a name for yourself. I was able to get promoted after my 3rd year but could have sooner. The benefits Aldi offers are amazing. Health insurance and 401k.

Cons

Aldi's prides itself on caring about their employees, but over the years I have seen them care less and less. Bonuses were taken away from store associates and shift managers. The vacation, sick and personal days were changed and combined to the point where you get less time off. They add more and more responsibilities to the job title but the pay does not increase. I was a hard worker and loved the fast paced days, but it became stressful with the limited help they schedule. There were times where I ran an entire store with one other person on busy sunday evenings in cascade or grand rapids area. Everyone gets overworked which leads to more call offs and everyone being stressed out. The corporate system of aldi does not care for the people in the stores because they are expendable. But even the District managers are feeling the stress because I saw 3 DM turnarounds in one year. With better leadership and appreciation of employees at the bottom, I would recommend Aldi to others, but not once did I take advantage of the employee referral program because I wouldnt recommend someone to work there lightheartedly , even with the small bonus they give you. You will have no type of personal life, which is the tradeoff for the crazy overtime opportunity.

Advice to Management

Appreciate your shift managers and associates more. You take a lot from them and expect so much. These employees are the face of your company and these employees are what make the store managers look so good on numbers. Theres a reason why every store currently is short staffed in the area.

The most challenging times in your store will be the callouts or when your team members quit, keep plenty of applicants in the pipeline and work with your DM to staff, hold your team accountable, without exception.
