Very stiff work environment, almost militant.

Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 13, 2018
In my personal experience there was too many friends of the supervisors that worked there making production very difficult. Great manager, however there strong need to move away from interpersonal relationships within one building.

Work hard for the money
Shift Manager (Current Employee) –  Meadville, PAOctober 12, 2018
If you are a driven, hard working person and you excel in fast paced environments, this place is for you. However, it's also just like high school. the drama is out of control. it's easy to be promoted to a shift manager but if you want to go any higher than that, plan on spending at least 10 years to get there .Every store is totally different in how they do things. They work you to the bone and expect you to never complain. if you are a shift manager you are only paid that wage when you are scheduled as the manager. you will still have to work cashier shifts and there is a 4 dollar pay difference. they will expect you to act like a manager even when you aren't being paid to be. you have to have full availability and have to work a mix of shifts. hours fluctuate based on sales, so one week you may work 25 hours and the next 45.
Pros
paid vacation, paid day off most major holidays
Cons
no steady schedule, hours, or shift.

ALDI is not as great as they want you to think.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) –  Wexford, PAOctober 12, 2018
Aside from store associate ---> shift manager, ALDI rarely promotes from within. If you have aspirations of being a store manager or district manager and are currently working within a store, forget it.

The pay for a store associate is adequate. The pay for a shift manager versus the expectations they have of you is ridiculous. As a shift manager you can never do enough to please them.

Benefits are the high point for this company. Medical, dental and vision care, plus 401k. New hire referral bonus as well.

As the company is growing and stores are being remodeled, they are making tasks harder and expecting the same level of service. They do not employ enough people per store to cover the daily needs and expect everyone to pick up the slack.

Schedules change 3-4 times a week, sometimes only a day in advance. They expect you, at times, to come in early, work late, switch days off, work on your days off. You don't always receive breaks and lunches.

It's a great company benefit wise, but when it comes to the expectations versus compensation, and opportunity to advance past a shift manager position, ALDI is sorely lacking.
Pros
Great benefit package
Cons
Rarely promote from within past shift manager, Schedule can change at any moments notice, Expectations are way too high for what you are paid

Shift Leader (Current Employee) –  Nowhere, MOOctober 10, 2018
Employees for the company are generally unhappy with their job. The managers are not qualified, as there is lack of training. The store itself tends to be disorganized. The priorities are not straight when it comes to running the store. Less important issues are considered important while the big issues are are almost ignored. The pay is capped and even though ALDI is known for promoting "livable wages," the pay is not enough for what is required of the staff on a daily basis. Very labor intensive and store injuries happen often. Employees work past their shift if duties are not completed, even though second shift has already come in. Severely understaffed, employees are always checking instead of tending to the floor and helping customers. Managers sit and talk all day in the office while associates are on the floor without any guidance. I've worked in many ALDI stores and this is the norm, unfortunately. It's a chaotic mess.
Pros
Holiday pay, benefits, 401k
Cons
Understaffed, lack of training, no work/life balance, capped pay lasting years

A good place to work with multiple benefits.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Madison, IAOctober 9, 2018
For Almost 12 years I enjoyed working for Aldi. It pays well and has decent benefits. I debated on leaving for a long time and if my daughter wasn't getting older and doing more in school activities I would have stayed. I needed M-F and with being open seven days a week that wasn't possible. I would recommend Aldi to everyone.

As I loved my job, the location I was at was not fit for me and there was no room for transfer. So I decided to leave the job due to non transferring preferences.
