labour intensive, possibility of progression
Picker/Packer/Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Chelmsford, Essex – 25 January 2017
working at aldi can be a rewarding experience with regard to the fair wage they offer, at £9.91 starting wage and a raise every year they pay well for the job described.
However you are expected to keep to high standards and targets that sometimes can be very hard to meet, you can not have an 'off day' without being scrutinised and often those who regularly meet targets but dont for one or two days are questioned more than those who dont meet them for weeks on end which can be frustrating.
This is also a very labour intensive job so although you finish early most days (any time from around 12 till 3) you will be very tired (also early starts) so is hard to do much else with your day, you will also be working maybe 3 weekends out of every 4 so you will not get much free time.
with reference to the above Aldi can be a place to progress wether it be from warehouse operative to aisle deputy and then on to a section leader but to do this you must go above and beyond, regularly work outside your shift pattern and be expected to work almost every weekend, for me this is not worth it but for others it may be the ideal career choice.
free fruit, mostly early finishes
highly labour intensive, work most weekend, early starts, expected to work overtime even if its not compulsory.
