Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was a a hardworking environment which i prefer myself because it allows for many skills to be gained and developed. the management is to a very high standard. They welcome many different cultures to to the business, which makes it a comfortable atmosphere for most who enjoy hard work.

Great work environment

My overall view of Aldi was excellent. It was a great place to work, nice group of guys and management was extremely friendly and helpful. I ended my employment because I have to return to college.

Good team and no stress

Perfectly organised so shifts aren't too physically intense. Laidback management but functional makes it a no stress working position. Only drawback is low career options.

Treat the pickers like robbots

Very hard job and ignorant management. Keep away from this place. They change the rules everyday if you don’t hit your picker rate you get sacked. 😞😞😞

Productive workplace

Typical day consists of 6-8 hour shifts. I have learned manual handling,using a voice activated headset and taking stock counts. There was good communication between management and staff. Co workers where friendly and helpfull which created an enjoyable atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was meeting your weekly targets. The most enjoyable part of the job was good hours,good pay and friendly staff.

Very busy work place in a cold room for tough guys

My typical day is starting at 5am or 7am. Once you are there, you go and take your pallet truck. We have to sign into the book. Then we log in into the voice talkman and starting picking boxes. It's cold there between -2 to +1 degrees but once you have to pick 265 boxes per hour, that's a pick rate over there, you don't feel it. You don't have time for it. After 2.5 hrs we have break for 30 min. It's paid and after break we pick whatever left to be done and then we do cleanings. Typical day of work is up to 6 hours most of the time. Which is around 30 hrs a week. It's hard job, but i like it as every job i am doing, i am trying to do with 100%.

Pros

paid 30 min break, extra sunday pay, higher basic pay

Cons

short hours, heavy boxes, cold place to work

Productive and fun workplace

Aldi was a nice but hard job. Employees had to keep a 310 pick rate per hour and could not drop bellow or the employee would get a warning. I learned to use voice activated picking systems and also learned to work very hard. My management were very friendly but strict and were always willing to help. The hardest part of the job was working in a freezer and also learning to drive the power pallet trucks but everyone gets use to that after a while. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and the work itself i loved every minute of it.

Exhausting and physically demanding

Working here was strenuous and not very fun and had little to no job security. It impacted heavily on my sleeping pattern and on my social life as there was no set roster for a working week
