Great benefits and decent pay but not worth the hassel
Store Associate (Former Employee) –  Columbia Heights, MNApril 19, 2018
A typical day at Aldi is Clock in on time which to them would be 5 minutes before your scheduled, get your till, find out where you will be either on the floor or on the register. Management usual has their favorites. You know that you probably wont go too far in this company if you have darker skin and you will be stuck on a register for 8 hours straight with only a one 30 minute break. If a customer or another worker disrespects you, even if you were not at fault, nothing would be done and management would not support you. There was a lot of favoritism going on as well as drama. Management did not know how to talk to employees and harassed me daily and watched my every move to find a way to let me go. The hardest part of this job would be the lifting when stocking items and getting the store closed and faced at a decent time.

Hard on body

More like a boot camp working here. Not enough emoloyees to cover what is expected to be done. If you are a cardio/heavy lifting major then this is the job for you.

Awful
Associate (Former Employee) –  Charleston, ILApril 18, 2018
I will never work at another aldi, it would be a push for me to even shop at one at this point. Atmosphere was awful, management did not care about the customer, and my overall experience left a sour taste in my mouth about Aldi as a whole.
Pros
The pay was good

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Penn Hills, PAApril 18, 2018
The hours were inconsistent. Full-time status was considered 25 hours and not 40. If you have lazy coworkers, you have to do your work and their work. Technically, it's everybody's work, but it is not fair when you hustle to get it all done and never get recognized for being an exceptional employee.

Loved the job but takes a toll on personal life. If each employee isn't efficient, entire day is messed up. Calling in sick is difficult (small staff)
Pros

Long shifts and weekend hours (ALWAYS).

ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  Monticello, MNApril 17, 2018
Typical morning shift: get there at 6am to work the truckload of pallets that was dropped of the night before. For the first three hours before the store opens, you break down these pallets on the sales floor. Expect to work hard and fast. Coworkers are helpful, but won't hold your hand. Chat and have fun with them. The rest of your shift is spent between cashiering and filling up items that sell down.

Typical closing shift: come in right before the openers leave. Continue to cashier and fill items as needed. Help customers and set the morning team up for success.

Management is hands on. They were all accomodating in my experience. The harder you work the more they'll accomodate you.
Pros
Good pay, opportunity to advance
Cons
Can be stressful

Shift manager
Shift Manager and Associate (Former Employee) –  Spring, TXApril 17, 2018
It was hard to get in all the requirements they demand of you. Crazy work schedule so no work life balance at all. I will continue to shop there due to the incredible prices but wouldn't consider working there unless they change how they do business. They also only pay your shift manager pay when you are the shift manager for that day.
Pros
Learned a lot
Cons
Overworked for the pay your recieve

Store assistant September (Current Employee) –  Clacton-on-Sea, EssexApril 17, 2018
Overall, Aldi is a fun growing retail business. The company has had many years of trade and is expanding on a massive scale. However they still have room to learn and trial new things.

Cut-Throat but Good Benefits
Associate (Current Employee) –  Clinton Township, MIApril 16, 2018
Very cut throat company, but poor management at least store and district manager wise. No equality between associates. Some associates work more than others. Hard work and life balance. Shift managers work harder than store manager.
Pros
Benefits, great salary, hard work, paid vacations/sick days
Cons
Lazy management, no equality, long hours

Adjunto Responsable de Sección
Adjunto a Gerencia (Former Employee) –  La Línea de la Concepción, CádizApril 16, 2018
Mi duración fue un mes, viniendo de una empresa anterior en la cual pase 9 meses sin ningún problema y en menos de 30 días aquí era el pero empleado del mundo, te hacen aprenderte más de 800 códigos de productos para pasarlo por caja porque el sistema informático que tienen es primitivo (a todo esto mientras estás en caja tienes que reponer, si no lo haces rápido también te lo exigirán), además si no te los aprendes, te hacen continuos exámenes, a todo esto, algo que me pareció increíble es que de vez en cuando te hacen abrir el coche para ver si llevas algo dentro robado, como si fueras un ladrón, una empresa que mira así por sus empleados no se merece nada.. si quieres hacer dos mil cosas bajo presión y sin ningún agradecimiento por un suelo mediocre esta es tu empresa.

Associate,shift manager (Current Employee) –  Bensalem, PAApril 16, 2018
The job is a lot of work. It's like working in a warehouse but with the public walking around you.You never have enough people working at one time so a lot of stuff doesn't get done. Once you become a manager not all your shifts are manager pay but yet you still have to perform manager like duties . That is a big downfall on the company .
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Never ahead, always something that has to get done

Pros
Free hot drinks
Cons
Long hours, dont know when you finish until during the day
