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

Pros

Executive Level at a young age, freedom to make your own decisions and learn from the mistakes that you have made. Seeing the people you hire grow and develop around you is very satisfying.

Cons

It is almost like you are a Glorified Babysitter. There are very few times when you are rewarded for quality work. Same salary for all DMs regardless of sales volume of your stores. Salary dependent upon length with company.

Advice to Management

Take it by the Horns, and be proactive. This is not a consulting position. Type A personality often recommended.

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

    Pros

    Great pay for retail. Most stores are flexible with your schedule. Time and a half is always nice for overtime

    Cons

    They said in my interview that they only promote from within, which is very enticing then 2 months later they higher upper management off the street. Very rarely promote someone from the bottom to all the way to Store manager. All the ones I know now started one step below management.

    Advice to Management

    District Managers need to stop lying in the interviews and quit making stuff up when an employee asks what they need to improve to be promoted

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great

    Cons

    Though the pay is great the hours aren't. The amount of employees hours the store is given depends on the productivity of your store. If the store is going through a slow period. Your hours will drastically be affected. Also you are considered an associate so as an associate you do anything and everything to keep the store going. You just don't sit there and cashier.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to modernize the technology that the stores use.
