    Poor Place to Work At

    Jul 10, 2021 - Stock Associate in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The only pros here is that you can expect to be paid, and they pretty much hire anyone.

    Cons

    Cons are: -Paid every 2 weeks. (If you are part time and get no hours, you're pretty much getting paid nothing or not enough depending on your circumstance.) -Your coworkers could be a mix of people who will actually work, to people who just show up and get nothing done, and it usually is the latter (Stock associate experience). -The managers are hit or miss, with it leaning towards a miss. -Favoritism in the higher ranks above the store manager. (A former store manager that had quit to start their own business, failed, came back and stole the position from the current acting store manager at the time from the help of the current acting district manager at the time. And then almost immediately promoted to a district manager without actually putting in work.) -If you're a stock associate/manager, there is almost nobody available to work, because they have quit, or are leaving, or the store is dedicated the store hours to the floor positions even with the outstanding amount of work you would have to do by yourself. -Upper management doesn't actually know how to conduct themselves. They'll say they can't do something because of certain restriction, but then do that very thing they said they could not do. -They work very counter productively. Shipment could either be labeled or not labeled, and occasionally give no knowledge of what you'll be receiving. All you would know, is that you're getting shipment and that would be "enough information". Without knowing what you're supposed to be getting, or in which boxes the things are located in, becomes a hassle when you're expected to rearrange more than 5000+ units of things (depending on your store size) either everyday, or every two days, by yourself more than half the time. And not only are you responsible for all of that during your shift, you also have to retrieve the shoes/items the people on the floor are requesting at the same time. So time spending having to move and rearrange the stock, is taken away by having to clamor around and look for products because more than half the time you're on your own (As a stock associate). -Any incentive that they make is not dedicated towards stock workers. They have these rewards, and events, but none dedicated to working stock, only sales floor. Being a stock worker in Aldo is pretty much a dead end job, even though they claim you could "move up".

    Easy Sales Experience

    May 21, 2021 - Sales Lead in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Easy way to gain sales experience and easy first-time job.

    Cons

    Heavy micromanagement. Upper management relies on store associates to push for sales even when store traffic is slow. Bonuses only go to upper management when weekly sales quotas are met even though most store associates are on the front lines pushing sales, asking customers questions, assisting multiple customers, and obtaining shoes from inventory.

    Poor company standards

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Discount for products and not much else. You can learn what not to do as a manager?

    Cons

    Sexual harassment is not a big deal for HR or upper management as they lie and take care of their uppers.

    A company is as good as the person you work for!

    Apr 15, 2013 - Senior Management (Multi-store) in Los Angeles, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Aldo is a great place to work for young individuals who are looking to gain management experience, excel quickly and get recognized for hard work as long as you are attractive and your supervisor likes you. It is a very political world, and if you don't mind that this is the place for you. Aldo is a fast paced store which requires that managers wear many hats, with little experience and often lack of training. For experience, this is great if you are a self-starter and don't mind working through conflicts and sourcing solutions to your own problems. The company is not the same as it was 6 years ago, but still not a horrible place to work if you play your cards right. Great company incentive programs.

    Cons

    The training programs are not well defined and the follow up is sometimes lacking due to time constraints and structure. Anything shared in confidence is not truly confidential, and can and will be used against you. Peer relationships lack support and foster a very unhealthy competitive feuds which are most of the time fueled by upper management.
