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

Pros

The benefits are great! They would be hard to match in a similar retail environment. The pay is also substantial for the positions. The culture of each store is very different but ours is awesome. I feel like I go to work with close friends and family on a daily basis and we always strive to have fun while getting our job done.

Cons

Work/life balance for a Manager is almost non-existent. We are salaried employees at 50 hours with no overtime (loop hole for "executive" employees). We are definitely not executive employees, and you will always put in more than 50 hours per week. You are also on-call 24/7 for any type of an "emergency". This leaves little time for family, friends, hobbies, etc. There are little to no opportunities to move up within the company. They do not have a hire from within culture.

Advice to Management

Give qualified employees the chance to move up within the company. They know your company, and are loyal to it. You should be the same way towards them.

    I have been working at ALDI full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, good hardworking people. Nice customer service experience. Paid holidays.

    Cons

    Scheduling by managers are never consistent. Work A lot of weekends and hours vary a lot. A lot of heavy lifting and timed at all duties for maximum productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Better schedules. No back to back shifts. Schedule more than 8-10 hours between shifts.

    I have been working at ALDI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay scale was good when I started. It has been the perfect job while going to school. My coworkers make the job fun. A great team building environment.

    Cons

    Aldi has a way of overworking you when you don't want it and underworking when you need it. As the company gains success, the employee centered ideals the company once held are now overlooked; such as lower wages and deteriorating health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Communication lacks here please be clear and appreciative to your employees. Additionally reward the hard work, don't simply put more work on them.
