Pretty good
Cashier (Former Employee), Canastoda, NYMay 29, 2015
Pros: private breakroom, benifits, schedule a month in advance, air conditioned, breaks
Cons: very physical job, tiring, long hours, standing on feet for long amounts of time.
The company does treat you well in a sense, but drops a lot of work onto just a few people. I also got fired for cash being short on my drawer, yet everytime it was short it was a specific manager on. I've never had issues with cash shortages with any of my other jobs, which were all cashier jobs. I'm just not sure if it was actually my fault. It could have been, but maybe not.

Great Benefits
Manager (Former Employee), East Rutherford, NJMay 28, 2015
This job offers amazing benefits, but it is very demanding. You will not have to worry about getting hours and they start you off with a great pay rate. This job will help you build muscle and lose a little weight because of the high demand.

Productive workplace. Certain management is questionable but othet than that, a great place to work.
Store Associate (Current Employee), Lake Saint Louis, MOMay 20, 2015
A typical day at work consists of throwing the truck load early in the morning. That includes the grocery, cooler, and freezer pallets. Then keeping up with the store and running the cash register throughout the day. I learned how to be efficient with everything you do throughout the day. Everything you do at Aldi involves being as efficient as you can. The less time you spend doing something, the quicker you can get to the next task.

A diverse company with a great compensation package.
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Chciago, ILMay 19, 2015
Pros: The pay rate
Cons: Short breaks
A typical work day at Aldi is all about teamwork and efficiency. Multi-tasking is a necessity. In the morning we stock the shelves with the products that were delivered the night before. We also check the produce to make sure everything looks appetizing and fresh. Throughout the day we are responsible for ensuring the shelves remain stocked, the store is clean, and that we provide excellent service to our customers. My co-workers are very pleasant and hardworking. Everyone helps when it is needed. My manager sets a great example. He offers tips that could help tasks go more smoothly and quickly. The hardest part of the job is lifting all the products. The most enjoyable part is the fast paced environment. There is always something to do.

productive work place putting customers always first
CASHIER (Current Employee), Elmira NYMay 18, 2015
Pros: the wonderful customers
Cons: healthcare sucks, sent home early loose hours do not get to leave when shift is up, do not get our full breaks like we should
A typical day at work would be a day of never ending duties always having to be done with a never ending smile for wonderful customer service. I have learned to stock shelves and do truck with inventory and better customer skills.The management is pretty good there, tries to treat everybody equally for the most part, the hardest part of my job would truck. I love the wonderful customers we get in on a daily basis who know us, I love making them happy and giving them the best customer service I can give them.

Manager/Manager Trainee (Current Employee), Owensboro kyMay 14, 2015
Pros: Grat Benefits
Cons: Short staffed
You need to be a fast worker
management is great, but they don't have enough staff to get the job done so management have to pick up the work that doesn't get completed by others.

Interesting place to work and to meet different people from all walks of life.
Store Shift Manager (Former Employee), Duluth, GAMay 12, 2015
Pros: Great compensation and benefits.
Cons: Understaff.
Working at Aldi allowed me to serve the public. Helping people is something that I love doing so working as a manager at Aldi gave me the chance to train and provide the best customer service to our customers. I learned how to prioritize time on a daily basis and also being the best leader that I could be. I had some of the best co-workers that I could ask for to get the job done. Management had their shortcomings at time but their overall performance was not bad. The hardest part of the job was working on a shift with less staffing and having plenty of task to complete. However, I had the best time throughout the years that I worked with Aldi.

This was a very busy job! You had to be able to multi-task!
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Hermitage, PAMay 6, 2015
This job could start as early as 4am. I would unload the cooler and freezer. Then we would unload groceries from the truck. The grocery orders coming in has so many different things on each pallet you have to be very careful. So that you did not damage anything . Once store opens you would keep your shelves neat and stocked at all times.

Great pay and benefits, but be prepared for the physical labor, and responsibility
Sales Associate (Current Employee), North Richland Hills, TXMay 5, 2015
Pros: Good pay, great benefits, opportunities for advancement
Cons: Physically demanding/exhausting, a lot of pressure/responsibility for cashiers (held to the same or higher standards than management), schedule can be grueling.
Great company to work for as far as benefits and compensation is concerned. A lot of pressure to work extremely quickly, multitasking constantly, constant customer service, and physical labor. A demanding, career-oriented job, must be at least 18 years of age with a High School diploma or GED. Easy to advance to a higher position which can be great for those with experience, but a major drawback is Aldi promoting people too quickly with too little experience who are only interested in the pay, and not motivated to work hard and be responsible. With it being a very demanding job, I'm sure this is Aldi's way of preventing high turnover. Hours worked can vary from 5am to 11:30pm, working most weekends, must basically be available to work 24/7 as Aldi mostly only hires full time employees.

daycare
Cashier (Current Employee), new yorkMay 1, 2015
Pros: working with children
Cons: manager who does not support her employees
A normal day for me at work is playing and teaching children. My heart is truly with children. The smiles and laughs through out the day puts a smile on my face. The hardest park of my day is dealing with a boss how does not back up her teachers. The support we need is never there.
