      Pros

      Easy to switch to a different Aldo store, I worked at a couple of different retail locations and never had a problem with getting transferred. Managers were nice and welcoming once you got to know them and saw that you were a hard worker

      Cons

      Underpaid, lots of works, long hours, clean up can be a bit much and take a really long time. Breaks are usually short and it takes forever to move up unless you practically act like the manager's pet
