I have been working at Aldo full-time (More than 3 years)
Moved up from within the company. Was hired in as a key holder, moved up to the assistant, and within my third year became a store a manger of a 1.5M Volume. If they see potential in you- they take action.
The pay isn't as great as other Retail companies. But the experience is worth it. I'd rather work for Aldo for less pay than to work for another company and be miserable with higher pay...
Advice to Management
Advice to corporate: You need to watch closely over your DMs, Area Managers, and SMs. I have seen too many people fired over LP-related issues that wouldn't have happened if corporate had more visits to stores.
I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aldo (Greensboro, NC).
I went to the store and asked for an application she asked me a few questions and told me come back with resume. It wasnt really hard you just have to go in at a certain time when the managers are there. I think if you seem confident and dressed well you should get the job.
