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

    Pros

    Pay..but even then not worth it

    Cons

    Long ridiculous hours-back to back work shifts-Upper Mgmt has unrealistic expectations of employees, lack of support from trainer and division manager-produce out in 1.5 hours, pallet unloaded in 45 minutes-if you don't get this done you are out the door. You never will get a break as a store manager-according to division manager "my store managers never take a break during their 10 hour shift" - this comment made to me when I explained that I couldn't get a drink of water during my shift. My trainer explained to me that the reason she didn't place enough staff on when I was first overseeing shifts alone was because she "wanted to push me". If you have sick children, parents, or anyone else that depends on you, explain to them that if anything happens while you are at work too bad as you have no time to accept phone calls or leave the building. This is the WORST job I have EVER had!!!! The money is the incentive - don't do it!!! Low prices on products means long, exhausting work hours for you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remain truthful to your employees and treat them as if they have something to offer other than the grunt work you pay them to do.
