How are senior leaders perceived at ALDI?

Pros

Great pay, flexible schedule, awesome team members, wonderful managers and higher-ups, paid breaks. They will even generously reimburse your round-trip gas mileage if you’re ever asked to work at another Aldi store nearby as supplemental help.

Cons

Hard work, early mornings, can’t work remotely, they don’t offer product discounts for employees (but they pay well enough for employees to afford it)

Advice to Management

Keep encouraging your team members to be kind, diligent, and hard working!

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at ALDI?

Pros

Trying to find the pros... can’t see to come up with anything... you get a check perhaps?

Cons

Where do I begin. First off the company has unrealistic expectations on truck completion. Senior management (DMs and above) are recruited fresh out of college and don’t actually have any knowledge how the store operations work or daily hardships in store staff deal with. Their logistic process is also severely flawed as truck sometimes deliver very late rendering it impossible to complete before store open and the company is too lazy to invest in an overnight process. They are trying to open new stores but are aware that they have 0 talent to run these stores but they just want to remain in a reactive approach against LID’L which is eventually going to run them out of business. Benefits are Cigna but no one takes Cigna so good luck. Last but not least the training is mediocre. They would say that you were trained on something because you took an online module but they actually don’t have any staff to actually produce quality training. They also capitalize of a lower income community and not in the positive we are here to help you kind of way. They are going to fail and I just wouldn’t bother if I were you.

Advice to Management

First off be transparent that you outsource senior management based off the college you went to which is sad. Create some type of diversity and inclusion plan to actually hire P.O.C. in senior management roles. It’s evident that you don’t care that P.O.C. are running your stores but not good enough to become district managers. Also maybe slow down opening stores in a competitive light and invest in the ones you have.
