I worked at ALDI full-time

Pros

Energetic, fast paced environment. Close with coworkers and regular customers. Rarely boring as there is always something that needs done. Independence as associates have keys and their own cash drawer to count. Fun job if you like to stay moving and have retail experience.

Cons

They will try to work you to death. Physical injury is common and time off is frowned upon as there is little staff. You're expected to work while sick and injured unless you are hospitalized. As a full time employee you will work many hours and many days in a row without a day off. During your shift it is hard to get a break to use the restroom because the workload is too high. This is a dirty job and you will be covered in things like meat juice and mop water and your hands/nails get filthy if you don't wear gloves.

Advice to Management

Don't schedule employees every day of the week without a day off. If a store is busy, hire enough staff to accommodate instead of running employees into the ground to the point of injury. Hire loss prevention staff.
