Working in an Aldi Warehouse is tough; but we are paid well for what we do. They pay us well above our competitors, and treat us with respect. Management has quarterly safety meetings for all employees so we can keep in touch with the company. Like any workplace, there will be gossip and upset employees; but for the most part, everyone gets along. Many of us hang out after work and have become friends through Aldi!
The hardest part about Aldi are the growing pains. Aldi has blown up since I first started in 2010. A normal day of picking included an avarage of around 16,000 cases to pick back then. Now, it's about 50,000 cases with near triple the amount of employees we started off with!
The best part of the job is being able to pick cases for your store your own way (so long as you make rate!). There is no right way to do things, which provides a healthy challenge and keeps you on your toes.
