Great if you never get hurt and want to work a ton
Cashier/Sales Associate/Stock (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – November 7, 2016
It'll keep you busy 100% of the time, you will pretty much never have downtime until the last customer leaves, and even then, they rush you to clean and get everything spik and span in an hour. Typically its one manager and one or two associates running the store, simply because they have very high expectations. This makes it hard for them to hire people in the first place
You get to know your coworkers well, ive stayed friends with them after leaving the job
Max of one 30 minute break, even for a 10+ hour shift, pressure to never call out even when sick
Aldi is a great place to work. A typical day includes stocking shelves, ringing as fast as possible (fun competition), and plenty of cleaning. This job keeps you on your toes but in the best kind of way. Typically management is pretty great to work with as long as you're pulling your end of the workload. The hardest thing to get used to with Aldi is how fast-paced the work environment is. The best part about the company is how supportive and team-orientated everyone is.
