    I have been working at ALDI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Days fly by, even when they are 12-16 hour days.
    All major holidays off, although not all paid.
    Your 1040 looks nice, until you divide your pay by actual hours worked.

    Cons

    AS A STORE MANAGER
    Unrealistic expectations
    Minimal staffing
    Extremely physical and demanding
    A thankless job

    Advice to Management

    District manager, let the Store Manager BE the Store Manager. Stop micro managing and maybe throw in a compliment every few months or so. If sales, productivity and store conditions are great, don't stop me from doing my work to point out a dust bunny behind some shelving.
