      Compensation very good. I left a very prestigious job to work for Aldi only because the pay was so good.


      So many cons I don't know where to start... 1.Terrible leadership (Store Level & Corporate) 2.Below average employees in current stores I've worked in. (Memphis, Tn Area) 3.Training is very unorganized and training managers will abandon training steps just to cover a busy sales floor with only a few associates scheduled day to day. 4.Unreliable workers. Everyday someone calls in sick or some other excuse, which puts more pressure on everyone else. 5.Task oriented company. I've been employed with Aldi for about 5 months now as a Manager Trainee and I've only had 1 conversation about driving sales and beating the day to day budget. All the mangers I've been around talk about is how you're not working fast enough or questioning why this didn't get done like that or some other gripe that has nothing to do with customer service. 6. Managers have below average social and people skills. They fail to motivate their employees and constantly ride their backs and never give thanks to hard work. Instead they focus on what didn't get done or what wasn't right, so you never know what you're doing right because they don't tell you....all negative stuff! (And they wonder why turnover is so high.) 7. High Turnover. During the interview process they tell you how physically demanding the job is (which is the easy part of the job) and how teamwork is valuable at Aldi because they only have 2 or 3 people working per shift. Well, they fail to tell you that as manager you have to wait on your DM to hire staff for you. From my experience they drag their feet on that end. We've had multiple people quit without a notice in the past month and were still waiting to see new associates walk through the door. Also Store Mangers in place treat their employees terribly. In my many years of retail management I've never seen a company that will allow their managers talk to their employees in such a unprofessional way. Also , they didn't tell me my benefits starts 90 days from the day they receive your benefit package from your new hire paperwork in the mail. I got my medical benefit cards in the mail 60 days after starting. Something unexpected happened and I had to go to the doctor's office and while I was getting seen by the doc the front desk lady came in and told me my benefits doesn't start until the following I had to pay hundreds of dollars out of pocket all because they left that little wrinkle out of orientation. I was Pissed! 8. No diversity. Barely any men in any of the stores....96% women working in the stores in this district. Very uncomfortable at times. I have more negative points to make but my hand is getting tired from typing... I'm so disappointed with this job. I would love to be the one who sticks around and try to "change the culture" in this area, but I'm afraid 1 man isn't enough to change this mess.

        They pay well for the industry and the insurance/ benefit package is really nice. The scheduling is very flexible and has always accommodated my needs.


        Some staff turnover due to strenuous pace and work volume creates heavy problems for current staff.

      I have an interview for Sr data engineer in RBC. Does anyone have any idea what can be asked? Any experience anyone can share?


      University of South Florida

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
