Aldi was a good place to work. Not a place you can stand around. Alwayscon the go from start to finish. Its not a place for everyone to work and takes a bit of getting used to.
Pros
Good pay

If you feel and wish to be treated as a number and if you think that bullying is management style, then this is place for you. Work /life balance is very bad.

If you are not a robot this place will break your body somehow soon or later. palets are too heavy, too high, sometimes broken and you have to pull it around store. Maybe is not like that in every store idk. But managers of this places is always choose by same way: how well slave are you which means blindly following orders and how long is your tongue ;] Overall, if you have any ambitions in your life and you are not a simple di*k, just don't. But if you looking for job just for now you should handle that river of bullsh*t

No stability
Management changing rota every day without notifying the workers.

You cant plan you time off.

Company is focused only on the money workers means nothing.

Aldi as an employer have to invest more in to their own employees, that’s causing big staff rotation in stores. Very fast environment with great multitasking learning skills.

Great job for someone who wants to put their head down and work hard.
Progression is available for those who show they are capable.

They prefer to promote from within the company.

Great wages, Trainning, staff. You need to be physically fit and a quick thinker to fit in. Different shops have different personalities making moves within the company like starting a new job all over again.

I worked as a warehouse operator in ALDI for one year part-time while I was in college. I worked two shifts on the weekend from 7-3. I was actually employed by ISS facilities services to work in the warehouse. Overall the work wasn't that hard but the volume of work made things challenging. Usually you had the most work to do right before your shift finished. This is very much a short term job, there was a completely different staff from the month I started to the month I left.
Pros
Can be a good job for someone between careers
Cons
unfriendly managers, minimum breaks
