ALDI selected this as a representative review
one of the most fun company’s to work for! They are a big family and something I really liked about this job was the varieties of different activities there is to do in a day. It helped me feel accomplished and always busy! ALDI is never really slow so when it is ...it’s fun to see the store empty at times! I think this company treated me wonderful and I have no complaints.
Constantly busy and you have to keep up with the pace.
At first you are pumped because your day is go, go, go and then you realize that that never ends. Managers openly play favorites and when interviewed the D.M. at the time literally warned me to not kill myself because the job pays by scale, not efforts given. In the year that I worked there, I was off 3x for physical injuries from the job and this is common. There were positives like the regular customers who actually cared, but overall terrible experience.
Hours, labor and overall feeling unappreciated.
I absolutely loved working here. It had the best working environment and I loved the customers. The management was so chill and make work more fun. No one ever got mad at staff for not understanding something. They always helped you through. I wish I could be hired again here!
Great breaks and staff
Not my favorite Job but I work as if I work for God not for man. It’s a good place to learn discipline and to overall grow in a tea fam environment, if you are not interested in selfish desires but the betterment of others it is a good start. Always have a next step, because ALDI might not be permanent.

Jobs at ALDI
Aldi as a job can be good unfortunately very unrealistic goals. As a store manager on average you get 45-50 hrs a day to run your store with you being 10 hrs of that but you usually work 12-14hr.You do not get support from your District Manager who has only worked in a store maybe 3-4 months. The company micro manages you on everything you do. The company will give you more and more duties with no extra hours for help but expecting it to be done. The company as a whole does not care about their employees at the store level. They get what they can out of you and when you get burnt out and your body breaks down or are just frustrated that will cut you loose and put the next person in. There is no opportunity for advancement for a store manager. Aldi only wants young college grads as DM’s. Easier to control and manipulate.The only good feature is the pay but you have to be willing to sell your soul to the devil and give up a work life balance. If you have a family don’t expect to see them. I’d skip this company all together.
Hours, staffing, personal health, upper management
Aldi is definitely a very hard company to work for and they expect a lot out of their employees, but they compensate their people very well, so it ends up evening out in the end. Overall a solid company to work for, be prepared to put in long/strange hours with high stress, but you'll be compensated fairly.

Hours, stress, environment
Typical work day is fast-paced and on your feet. I learned many technical learning skills while working at ALDI Inc. Management is great support and cares about everyone and their success. The hardest part of the job is the fact you are on your feet all day, but you are compensated greatly for your hard work on their storefronts. The most enjoyable part of the job was making the friendships and working together as a team.
I loved working at Aldi, great employees and costumers. Great products. Clean environment but the company doesn't have a set schedule which makes it tough for a single mother and or personal life.

You get reports daily on those times
Where I worked, the management bragged about the relative high pay, but that's only because you are literally supposed to do everything at once. If you're not an extremely fast paced person, they won't schedule you much or kick you out. In my other jobs, I was considered an efficient, good worker. But at this company, it's a whole other ball game. You will probably hurt your back working there if you work mornings. If you sign up for the cashier position, that means you won't really cashier except for 30% of the time probably. If you are opening, you need to get there at 5am and work the pallets extremely fast. When you are cashiering, they TIME YOU to make sure that you're going fast enough. It was intense.Where I was at, if you didn't clique with the group, you weren't liked. Also, my manager was obsessive and annoying about that and kept bringing it up to my face. It was annoying; I had to get out of there.
Somewhat decent pay (although not paid enough for the amount of work you do there).
Expected to perform all positions and do eveything REALLY fast.
