We’re giving an ALDI shout-out to Richard R., the uncle of Warehouse Associate Darlene H. in Webberville, MI. Richard is 100 years old and loves shopping at ALDI. He was born in 1917, when only the original ALDI store in Germany was open! Here’s what Richard had to say about why he chooses to shop at ALDI: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQsw4

I have been working at ALDI full-time (More than a year)
One of the best things about working for Aldi is the opportunity that Aldi presents for those that want it.
Company car, ability to make your own schedule, and having complete autonomy with your position are great. At the end of the day your name is on the side of your stores with Aldi backing you.
The position is essentially being a business owner of your own district of 3-5 stores. It comes down to understanding that people drive the business and results stem from those who work in your stores.
Security alarm calls do happen from time to time. Since your stores are open operationally on the weekends, you may have to deal with calls/problems "off of work."
Hours can be retail and on weekends, which happens throughout the industry.
Advice to Management
District changes have a huge impact on store morale, manager morale, and store turnover.
Numbers may be black and white, but realizing that it is people who run the business will help in the expansion efforts over the next 3 years.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ALDI.
It was three long interviews, they pry into your team work, and how hard you work. They make it very clear that you will be pushed hard and work very hard. They also want to know that you can delegate very well.
