A grind and a half.

It's a decent company structure plagued by skeleton crews, contradictory management, indulgent upper management, disconnected board of directors and a hostile work environment. The good do not last long at this company and the cruel and rapacious thrive.

Pros

Decent Pay relative to the marketl

Cons

Literally everything else.

Bad People Culture

Disrespectful Environment. Bullying Environment. They don't care about workers wellbeing. They are dismissive towards someone's age so if you are older you will never be promoted. Stay away from this company!

Pros

No

Cons

Bullying

Met some lovely people

I only worked at Aldi for a couple of months, I met some really lovely people that I enjoyed thoroughly working with. It is tough going, but the salary is actually really good, which is one of the reasons I went for the job. I left due to finding something more suited to myself, but I still talk to many of the people I worked with. Management can be pushy, and you best believe overtime is a possibility with aldi.

Not bad for students and first/second job

Typical day includes stacking shelves being called on till and serving customers, high targets are expected and you have to be super fast, not for the faint hearted. For the retail sector the pay isnt bad.

Pros

Pay, Good Management

Cons

High pressure, rotating shifts, 6am starts, 10pm finishes

Good money - bad attitude

Working for aldi you will be very well paid. But they will get every cent from you. They operate their stores with a small number of staff sometimes not enough for what you need to get done. Everything u do is timed and expectations can be very hard to meet. Dont expect any sort of work life balance or routine. There is no staff discount on shopping which they say is because they say they make very small margins on food sales. But im sure they could offer staff something. We are not allowed to buy any special buys before customers or have any discount on them. Which is all fine as they are usually very limited but im just saying this to show that staff get zero benefits from employment here just the pay.

Pros

Good money

Cons

Zero work life balance. Hard, back breaking work

Fast Paced Environment

Great experience, fast paced retail environment. Little to no room for career advancement at manager level. Unsociable hours, lots of weekend work, high rate of staff turnover requiring constant training of staff.

Well paying job for hard work.

It is very intriguing to work for Aldi as they are one of the highest paying retailers in the country. The job also comes with bonuses such as Christmas vouchers for employees and exclusive discounts and offers with Aldi affiliates and other retailers. The work is very physically demanding however. It is ideal for hard and focused workers who enjoy the retail role.

awful awful awful

typical day at work: arrive-leave your brain outside-work brainless-work more-collecting lots of negative feedbacks from your bosses-break-same as before break-clock out-leave-put your brain back what you learned: use the technique from a very popular tv show giving finger actually not giving it. management: brainwashedtargetdrivenrobots what i learned: how NOT to be a manager workplace culture: robots are dont talk, do they? hardest part in the job: from start shift till end shift the most enjoyable part: having day off, leave the building

Worst company i have EVER worked for

I blame myself for not listening to the bad reviews. This company is a joke, i have no idea how they do well. All management and payroll act like they have just left school and have no idea about anything. The staff were rude and bullying, my so called “Training” was horrible. I didn’t mind the physical hard work, it was purely the staffs behaviour that i hated. A quick description of my “training” , i would be told i had to complete a pallet in 30mins, i completed them in 20 mins each, i would then ask every member of staff what i can do and they all said ask someone else, so i would eventually try and do other pallets or back stock, at the end of my shift, the manager shouts at me for taking longer than 30mins a pallet. I tried to explain i had and i was continually told off and bulled. I was told that they dont care if i have finished my shift and not getting paid i must still stay and finish what i started. (I had finished everything) This happened all the time. I was so angry because i finished my work early all the time and no one would want to give me anything else to do because they thought all the jobs were to important for any new person to do. Also i was not even allowed a box cutter (which i have used everyday my whole life) so i had to open boxes with my fingers and nails, obviously resulting in bleeding all the time. The staff walk around with thier noses glued to the ceilings, they need to bring themselves back to the ground and not act so stuck up and believe that thier job is to skilled to share with you. Everytime i asked for help or training they refused. -

One big joke

Work what you need to do in there it's not worth the money what you get. When you work evening shift you never know what time you will finish. The actual job it's not like in job description. Health and safety dosnt exist in there.

Pros

None

Cons

None

Lots of progression opportunities if you're willing to sweat for it.

Aldi stores are run with incredibly high-efficiency business models which means a lot of employee productivity monitoring and targets. This isn't an issue if you enjoy working up a sweat and enjoy really pushing yourself physically at work. Aldi's 'flexible skill' approach to employee training also means that you will be kept very busy for the first 6months experiencing a lot of new tasks and being steadily trained in all the stations of the store. Unfortunately, once the training is done, like any shop-floor work in businesses this streamlined, it becomes repetitive and monotonous, more physical work out than mentally stimulating. Customers are incredibly diverse in scope, I found this to be a huge upside. Workplace culture differs from store to store but I was fortunate enough to be part of an incredibly hard-working, friendly and motivating team. I made friends I still keep in contact with that I probably wouldn't have met otherwise and my entire work philosophy is different for the better. This isn't necessarily the case, but Aldi's approach does weed out the half-in/half-out staff and leaves you with a team that more often than not care about the work and appreciate the financial reward and promotion track. SUMMARY (TL/DR) Pros: - The promotion track is real; if you really want it and work for it, you WILL be a store manager at some point in your career with Aldi. They're constantly expanding and as a result promotion opportunities are seemingly endless. You are essentially capped at Store Manager if you haven't studied at 3rd Level, but you can fast track -

very stressful enviroment

I will recommend to work for this company to people who are looking for a day full of exercise and no work-life balance. If you willing to be flexible 24 hours per day and just leave your life in the store.

Pros

free exercise and free diet ( no time for proper food especially in management level)

Cons

xxx

Busy place

It's very hardwork, but if you get into the routine and you like to be busy at all times, that's the place for you. Mangers are demanding people but they are very helpful too.

Pros

Good amount of hours weekly

Cons

very early start in the morning
