High paced, physical work. Not bad all round.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Massive work expected, management make you feel like you're exceptionally lucky to be earning a living wage. You'd earn a slightly lesser wage in other retail companies but at least you wouldn't be killing yourself day in day out

Pros

Keeps you fit, day goes quickly

Cons

Long hours expected, illusion of work life balance that isn't really there

Tough, but fair

The work at Aldi is tough and physically demanding, with a lot of emphasis on time targets. However, the staff and management are more than fair to you as long as you work at it and show signs of progression.

Pros

Good wages, fair management, flexible rota

Cons

Physical work, emphasis on speed over quality

Day goes quick

Good place to work when u have a good manager and good team members. You have possibilities to go up with the right manager otherwise not. You make friends for life. And explore different stores from time to time.

Pros

Salary on time, different tasks, good team members, get off when you need, permanent contract.

Cons

Working on Christmas, many weekends, bankholidays, opening time are too long, no store discount, no full time contract.

Hard work little return

At Aldi you will be expected to be available to work any day any time. Early starts 5am late finishes 11pm. Unreachable targets and purposely understaffed stores. Leads to a toxic environment where ever is judging each other. Aldi don’t want to pay enough staff to do the job so you will be overworked. Standards are expected but they are not willing to give enough hours to the store to meet these standards and the shops are suffering.

Pros

Career progression

Cons

No work life balance

very mid

physically exhausting and mentally draining unless you're a literal robot you won't enjoy it at all, very demanding and competitive, team is great but the actual job isn't.

Above average pay for the industry but you are expected to work and earn for every single cent of that pay

Above average pay for the industry but you are expected to work and earn for every single cent of that pay.Depends on the person if this job would suit.If you like being physically active then this job might suit you

It was a good place to work.

I really enjoyed working in Aldi. The only two things I didn't like was getting paid monthly and being put on the first till from a 2 to 10 shift. Other than that I felt it was a great place to work. Always kept going and it was good work. A bit of heavy lifting but not too bad.

Pros

End of year bonus

Cons

Paid monthly

It's hard work, but amazing team and management

Yes it was hard like any job, but the team were great . Management was very understanding and helpful. Even when my son born we got plenty of baby presents but it's not even that, mostly that they cared about us and its well worth it. It was like a great workout and your body will get used to it :) I would recommend it a lot, great experience and I never regret it. Jan the store manager always looked after us.

Pros

Paid break, good salary

Cons

Morning shift are not easy
