Earn every penny

Its not for everyone. The work is pysically demanding and sometimes barely achievable targets. At certain times of week and year it is pandemonium and not enough staff. The job security is good once you can get through the trial and prove you can last the fast pace.

Pros

Good money for retail

Cons

Very few weekend days off and ringing on days off

Well paid but not for the work you do and speed you have to do it in plus you had to do 12 modules on their computer witch was ajoke wanted you to do it in your own time plus if u get a question wrong you'd have to start all over its asupermarget they need to remember that they go threw staff because no one stays

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

Aldi

ALDI has been a fantastic place to work since I've started there over a year ago. there were some difficulties at the start but once you become used to the ALDI way days fly by as there's always something to be doing as its such a busy place. salary is good always guaranteed hours, management is great always very accommodating with days off, shift swaps and understanding when children are involved. great place to work.

Pros

salary, hours

Cons

breaks

great job

my time at aldi was great experience i really enjoyed the whole retail industry but due to personal experiences i felt the need to try and learn other aspects to the business cycle with the aim of learning new skills in the hope of one day owning my own business. late nights followed by early mornings hardest part. work and life balance was good. stress free. majority of work force where friendly and easy to work along side.

Pros

free lunches, four weeks annual leave. 3 weeks rostors in advance

Cons

got paid monthly
