I worked at ALDI part-time

Pros

The starting wage is above industry standard.

Cons

More times than not did not get scheduled breaks. Stores are horrendously understaffed yet management sends workers home if store targeted sales per hour fall short. Travel 40 minutes to get to work for a 5 hour shift and get sent home after 3 hours. Training, particularly on the non register equipment is not sufficient.

Advice to Management

Too much emphasis on speed of checkout (number of items per minute). Customers do not like to be rushed. To many of your elderly customers, this is their "day out" and should be an enjoyable activity. Taking a few seconds to smile and say hello means so much to them. Don't criticize and reprimand your workers for treating customers like they are important and welcome.

    I have been working at ALDI part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay very well but expect you to work very hard.

    Cons

    -crazy work hours (leaving at 12pm to be back at 5am to open)
    -unrealistic goals that try to match stores in district that are completly different
    -horrible inventory management procedures

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more personal and not so rude. Maybe work a shift once in awhile so that you have a better understanding of the store. An hour walk through doesn't show much.
