    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 :'-(

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, major holidays off and paid for them. All around it's a wonderful company to work for. Its very busy and the days go by fast. Always moving

    Cons

    Manaher premium is nice when you are manager. But when you are an associate you are expected to do everything managers already do. Lots of lazy employees that are making the same associate pay as you and they do half the work. They also get the same raise when it's not deserved.

    Advice to Management

    Managers work their tails off whether they are associates or managers instead of the premium they just always get a higher base pay. And raises should be based on performance. Why am I someone who working hard get the same amount of money and raise as someone who goes in slacking and doing the bare minimum?
