Stock Coordinator (Current Employee) - McLean, VA - July 21, 2019
I go in mostly for the evening shift when it’s the most busy and work in the back stocking shoes and sending out ships as well as running the shoes to the front. Usually fast pace because of how busy it gets and can sometimes be overwhelming.

My time at Aldo was not the best. It was really hard for new management to step and start getting the hang of things. This made it very difficult to get days off that I needed off and they became very inflexible.
Store Manager (Former Employee) - Chicago, IL - September 30, 2019
Started off as a sales associate in 2014, got promoted all the way to a store manager within three years. It was nice to meet so many new people but the workload and stress as a store manager led me to leave. I stayed 2 years as a store manager and took over several different locations. Each location was trash, poor staff, poor product, and poor cleanliness and I was expected to flip the store with no help from anyone else. Yet when other managers needed help I was expected to help pitch in. The district managers can be so rude, unprofessional and petty towards anyone they personally did.not like, even if they were the best associate on the staff. It was very messy.
Discount, Meeting Many People
Poor Management, Stressful, Work/Life Balance is non existent

While working with Aldo it's been fun you meet new people learn new things most times they are flexible with your hours etc. The only cons are management the district manager can be completely unprofessional the person will make rude remarks about you while you are their! And if you want a raise forget about it I worked there for a long time and Just got a promotion/raise the district even said she didn't want to at all and then literally hired a girl who has never worked in her life (her first job) a manager! , And my manager would always try to force me to buy new shoes saying my "last season" Shoes where ugly despite literally buying them 4 months ago.

Aldo is a pretty nice place to work
Stock Coordinator (Current Employee) - Central Valley, NY - September 28, 2019
Days usually consisted of taking care of the back stock room and making sure that the floor was supplied with the necessary inventory so the sales associates could sell. Anything that didn't fit on the floor was in the back room and the could be called by anyone in sales for me to bring out to the or the customer. Other days would be focused on receiving shipment which meant opening boxes of shoes to put out on the floor and putting the rest in the back room or deciding that it should go to an offsite storage.
Store Manager (Former Employee) - Maryland - September 17, 2019
Initially I was very excited to start this position- I was sold on a bonus structure that would compensate roughly $15k (which is similar to the pay cut I took with this offer). I was never told that the position wouldn’t pay overtime or that I would be expected to work 50-60 hours and 6/7 days a week (No Fridays or Saturdays off!). I was “trained” by the person I was replacing. My boss pointed a lot of fingers and lacked in communication.
You are obligated to work open-close some days by yourself, without a break. Retail drama is high here. No back office, so you even have to make your schedule on the sales floor. Returns from bigger stores count against your stores sales each day. All around bad leadership and pay that doesn’t even start to justify any of it.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Aldo’s system is so outdated I feel like Im working in 1988. You have to manually apply discounts but they have a playboy mansion of the shoe world in Canada but, cant seem to afford better operation systems. Their stockrooms are horrible and its hard to find anything. Then they have the nerve to try and motivate you sell more in exchange for possibly winning a iPod, flat screen t.v vs offering commission.
Sales Lead (Former Employee) - Denver, CO - August 13, 2019
In total, I was with ALDO for two years! Starting as a Sales Associate and Sales Lead. The management (during the time I was there) was wonderful - I always felt supported. The transition from Associate to Lead was made very easy by those above me. ALDO's loyal customer base made the work fun and the days go by fast.
Store Manager (Current Employee) - Portland, OR - August 5, 2019
Was with this company a long time.
Was amazing for a time, new ceo and things changed. Lost great leaders in the process and they continue to leave. Its sad to see this company go in this direction. I was once proud to say i worked there. I am now sad to say, when I left I felt undersupported from those above my DM. I was working a good 60-70 hours a week. I was salary so no over time. and I made under40k.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) - Sunbury, OH - June 12, 2019
Working at an Outlet Mall there sometimes not a lot of people which causes a dry and hard day to sell. The manager in my store didn't seem to understand how hard it was to sell on a day with very little business.
Sales Lead (Former Employee) - Pensacola, FL - May 17, 2019
Store Manager Is Very Rude.Lazy.Doesn’t follow through On her words with actions. She gossips to employees about other employees .She has a very negative spirit and is very unprofessional. I do not recommend this stress on anyone.
Part Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) - Cabazon, CA - April 27, 2019
Not many hours given though it's good if you're going to school full-time and just need like a side job. Poor management, the store manager just stands in the middle of the store and doesn't help out until it's time to ring a customer in other words, takes credit for your sale. Very competitive environment.
