    I have been working at ALDI full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Super Salary, as manager you can work to your own Rota within reason. All time owed must be taken. 5 weeks holidays plus bank holidays

    Cons

    Constant pressure to hit targets, multitasking on a huge scale and too much time being reactive instead of proactive. Managers spend too much time on tills and working deliveries instead of managing.

    I worked at ALDI full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + industry leading wages Associates - $12/hr, Shift Mgr - $16/hr, SMT - $23/hr, Store Manager - $75,000+/yr + great work environment + excellent training + health, dental, vision, life insurance, 401k + 40-50 hr/wk with paid overtime Very fast paced so work hours fly by. I loved working at Aldi. The pay was great! Benefits great! Was training to be a store manager so a lot was expected of me but I was totally up for it. My store manager loved my work, associates loved my fairness, customers loved me.

    Cons

    + work/life balance + walked 28,000 steps/day!!! Never thought I would be fired for clocking in only minutes late!!
