    Cons

    very hard work your are contently pushed to be faster and more efficient they time most everything you do it can be very stressful. There is allot of hard labor involved with this job. Its always a completion someones always trying to move up and its always in the air that someones getting fired so your constantly on edge so be careful what you say to people stick to you self and do your job. there is a very high turnover rate alot of people quit before they even really get started. Its alot of work physically and mentally

    Pros

    You are never bored and the days fly by. For retail work the money is way better than average and the store close at a decent hour. The benefits aren't bad, but not great, and once you get established as a manager and prove you know what you are doing they tend to give you a wider berth to operate within. The DM's handle the hiring process, including the background check and drug testing along with all the new hire paper work.

    Cons

    Like any other retail store the days can be long sometimes. Aldi stores tend to operate with a minimum staff, so if someone has an unplanned extended absence things can get rough really quickly for a store manager. The job is VERY physical!!!! Throwing the inbound trucks and handling all the special buy items can be back breaking work. Sometimes even the college kids leave worn out at the end of the day. This is the only aspect of the job that I find really daunting. Sometimes the long hours and extreme physical nature of the job results in injuries (we've had several at our store).

    Advice to Management

    Two things come to mind.

    1. Find some way to help mitigate the physical load on the managers during the busiest times of the year, Christmas and spring. These stores are designed to handle the everyday business just fine, but the six to eight weeks a year that are incredibly busy and/or involve a mountain of special buy products coming into the store can be physically and mentally overwhelming.

    2. The DM's need to keep the big picture, the big picture. What I mean is a DM will come into a store that is operating at a very high capacity and is well kept and stocked. Instead of saying, "good job, keep it up" they often times offer up a fifteen minute diatribe about high the back of the shelves have dust on them or there are only 4 cases of pineapples out instead of 5. You get the idea; customer service, sales and a tidy store.
