cashier (Former Employee) – Asheboro, NC – January 20, 2017
Good pay but no hours. I could not make a living with this job. Typical day was stocking the store for three hours before opening hours. It was very hectic and never had enough time for a decent sleep.
A good company, with great benefits. Almost impossible to get promoted. It's a very demanding and hard hard job. It's physical and mentally demanding. Hours are never the same, everyday. It's a very physical job

My experience has been a good one for this company. Managers are very organized and we are trained to complete tasks as efficiently and courteously as possible. The hours of operation aid the work/life balance. The culture is good; customers are interactive so it's good for a company to have that feedback. My co-workers are intelligent and hard-working people.
Shift manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 18, 2017
mornings you would stock food that came in from the morning and take inventory of the food that came in. 12/hr for cashier 17/hr for shift manager you only get paid shift mamager if there isnt another higher manager there. if there is a higher manager there you get paid 12/hr which sucks but understandable
Stocker (Current Employee) – Madison Ohio – January 18, 2017
I liked working here, but I really wanted to advance in the company; it just didn't seem possible to advance. It was a fun place and we always were learning something new about the products and why it's good to eat that type of food. Working here I wanted to eat healthier because I really saw the benefit in it.
High energy workplace with unreasonable expectations.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Fultondale, AL – January 17, 2017
The job description calls for 50 hours a week which was a joke- never worked less than 60-65 hours per week. Although the work was strenuous I did enjoy working with my crew and I loved my customers. Hardest part of the job was dealing with upper management. No positive feedback. No consistency with regards to company policies. Separate and sometimes double standards depending on the store. I did learn how to multi task at an all new level
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Collingdale, PA – January 17, 2017
work can be long or short depending on how the manager is running shift. i learned you have to work for your money and nothing else. the management could have been better. it would be nice if the co-workers could work better together. the hardest part is, the job is not hard people just make it harder for themselves and others. the most enjoyable part is boxing.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Canton, IL – January 13, 2017
This was a fun but sometimes hard job I loved every minute of it. It did take a lot of time away from my children but they understood why mommy had to work. After ten years I decided my time would be better spent with my kids.
Aldi is a very fast pace work environment. You are required to be very good at multitasking. Extra hours is almost always available at different locations if your interested but I must warn you that each store is different. The hardest part for me right now is trying to stay warm as well as stocking. When I first started stocking in Aldi's terms "throwing truck" it was over barring but they more you do it the better you get but its defiantly a trip to the gym I swear. lol 'Ive met a lot of people working there and my money and benefits are good as well.
