    "Good first job but not worth the money in the long run."

    I worked at ALDI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were good. Good opportunity for a recent grad.

    Cons

    Company is stuck in the Stone Age. A lack of technology makes communication slow and time consuming. The pay is great for being right of college but after a few short months they throw you to the wolves running a store. 70-80 hours a week is common and basically expected while running a store. Once you finish training and take over a territory your hours stay about the same. The only way to move up in the company is to work yourself to death and show upper management that you care about nothing but your job. There is a lot of turn over at the DM level and many burn out quickly. In the division I worked in there were very few DM's over the age of 40 because most would quit or be fired by then.

    Advice to Management

    More training needs to be done on being a DM not a Store Manager. If the company would focus less on productivity and more on their employees quality of life the amount of turn over at all levels would be reduced drastically.

    Pros

    If you put forth the effort, you are rewarded for it. Their promotions are not based on seniority, but on performance.

    Cons

    You work your tail off. It is a very physical job, regardless of you're a cashier, store manager, or district manager.
