Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at ALDI full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Work as part of team. Can see impact of hard work daily. Pay is great! Time off is mandatory. Company is understanding with personal issues etc

Cons

You are new for about a year. Learning the muscle memory and strength to keep up the pace needed. It can be quite lonely at first when you fall behind, as I said, you can see your impact daily, that... also goes if you start to fall behind. Gets better though. Just always try to improve everyday/week etc

Advice to Management

New staff can get isolated when they first start and I'm not sure if that's great for mental health. Just keep an eye! I did find alot of bullying from older staff happened for those in first year as... they were building strength and speed
