Aldi is a high paying company, that's all the good news. No room for advancement past the store level. It is a company that is stuck in the stone age and BLINDLY refuses to keep or retain good talent. There is no communication on all levels of the company with regards to advancement opportunities. They simply hire fresh DMs out of college. No experience, life skills, company knowledge, industry experience, or work ethic required. Regardless if you have the same or better degree as them, because you have quality experience you are NOT eligible for advancement. It's an embarrassment that so many of us have wasted our time with Aldi.
They are always behind the curve on technology advancements by years, outdated and pathetic training or development programs leading to turnover issues, and a looming negative/bottom line approach to leadership.
I would not recommend this company to any experienced manager looking to better themselves or the company the work for. The money is the highest benefit they have to offer, so if you enjoy hard work (while your body allows) and dont look to advance further then this is the place for you.
High pay, good benefits
No advancement, no company direction, poor company innovation, bottom line leadership, hard/physical labor, no room for a voice.
