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

    Pros

    Great discount, good benefits. Fun work atmosphere

    Cons

    Payroll hours given to stores are mediocre. Low volume stores running on bare minimum to complete tasks while running on single coverage. No work life balance. Running on low hours with no overlap calls for Store Manager to stay later than scheduled time. This is why they make their managers salary. Lack of communication from DMS makes it stressful to really truly run and effective business. Constant DM changes (gone through three within the last two years). Corporate communication lacks in store level.
    Corporate will push promos two days before actual start date which makes it more time consuming and again resulting in the SMs having to stay later to get it done.

    Advice to Management

    Communication all around needs heavy work. The company preaches work life balance but there is none. Higher management only cares about sales. You will not get extra payroll to complete tasks. YOU HAVE to treat your operational hours the SAME as your payroll you give for sales!!!! Creating a stress free work environment starts with YOU.

    Also, where is the training programs for each position!!? Need to adapt a training program so it’s streamlined across all boards of the company!!! Be proactive!
