    I have been working at ALDI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, schedule, responsibility, freedom, trust, insurance, company car, vacation, training, mentors, company culture, being treated as an executive from day 1

    Cons

    It can be high stress. Having freedom means you are responsible for being efficient with your time. Unexpected tasks arise fairly often.

    Advice to Management

    To focus on the main things and ensure long term focus on the basics. To streamline information in order to facilitate the previously stated goal.

    I worked at ALDI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + industry leading wages
      Associates - $12/hr, Shift Mgr - $16/hr,
      SMT - $23/hr, Store Manager - $75,000+/yr
    + great work environment
    + excellent training
    + health, dental, vision, life insurance, 401k
    + 40-50 hr/wk with paid overtime

    Very fast paced so work hours fly by.
    I loved working at Aldi. The pay was great! Benefits great! Was training to be a store manager so a lot was expected of me but I was totally up for it. My store manager loved my work, associates loved my fairness, customers loved me.

    Cons

    + work/life balance
    + walked 28,000 steps/day!!!

    Never thought I would be fired for clocking in only minutes late!!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to reconsider their firing practice. Totally unfair to be fired by somebody who has never seen you or your work. Voluntary turnaround is out of control due to work load. I get it, its not for everyone, but value those that you do have. I was looking forward to putting in 15-20 years of my life into this company while I watched the average employee last only 3-5. Not disgruntled, more like heartbroken :'-(

    I worked at ALDI part-time

    Pros

    They start you out at 17.50/hr

    Cons

    Ice on the freezer floor made slipping and driving a daily obstacle, too much traffic and fighting over wrappers, manditory working 3 weekends per month, no room to grow. Tje good pickers stay good pickers as they hire management from outside the company, and top pay is earned after one year. Whether u are there 1 year or 10 years, you are paid the same.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and offer weekends as a seperate shift... After all, this is a permanent part time job.

    I have been working at ALDI full-time

    Pros

    They pay well and have great benefits for all employees. You don't get bored, there is always something to do. The store manager and district manager hand pick the employees to ensure that they get the right ones.

    Cons

    The workdays are usually long which is good in the bank, but hard on the back.
