    I worked at ALDI full-time

    Pros

    Full time is considered 25 hours a week, used to be 20. This is ideal for a person in college. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    The pay is decent, but not something a person could live on. Sometimes you were paid cashier pay, and other times shift manager pay ($4.00 more per hour). If store manager was in, you got cashier pay.
    The amount of work expected was not justified by getting cashier pay. There are so many other duties required and you are not compensated fairly, in my opinion.
    Hours fluctuated, so it was hard for people relying on their paycheck to live on. One week you get 25 hours, the next 39, and the next 27, etc....
    No room for advancement at the store level. The highest you can go is Store Manager, but that requires no life outside of Aldi.

    Advice to Management

    Allow shift managers to get shift manager pay when they are working. Not fair some cashiers are only cashiers while others are expected to get paid the same to work the trucks and do all the "heavy work". Promote within company instead of only new college graduates who have never worked retail in their life.

    it pays well, the work is physical so you can stay in shape

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay with good benefits.

    Cons

    Slim staffing. Its a catch 22 with the pay. We are paid well because the company runs slim. Too inconsistent with changes. Even with those 2 things I named, I still believe its a fantastic company.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that if you're going to run with a slim staff, that hiring the right people for the job is key.
