    Pros

    Good pay, good hours, company uniform, vouchers every year.

    Cons

    Very tough, physical work. Poor contact with management. It feels like the head office doesn't acknowledge the existence of the distribution center.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your subordinates, that's all.

    I have been working at ALDI part-time

    Pros

    You’ll be able to develop new skills, seen that you’ll have to do each of the existing operational duties in store, from replenishment of the shelves to cleaning toilets and operating the tills all in the same day and with a smile on your face.

    Cons

    Because you’ll have to develop every different task in store, the pressure and level of demand from the deputy managers can be overwhelming.

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ALDI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is among the best in the retail sector.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on ensuring fairness in rotas. We all know we have to work weekends and late shift and early mornings but nobody is checking when the last weekend somebody had off. Or if your two days off are together or separate or if you work every bank holiday or sunday.
