Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 16 January 2018
Managers were very patronising, condescending if you like. I worked here for a year during which I was very stressed mangers couldn’t seem to provide me a task for their made up job and hours I were offered were low. In comparisson to every other staff member.
The managers tended to shout out instructions across the shop floor to members of staff, they often said not to speak to customers just point them in the right direction and continue working.
On more than 5 occasions I had customers complain to me about the managers being rude and one even told a customers child to “shut up “
However the pay was good and my colleagues were supportive.

Worked in few retail before (like lidl). But Aldi is the worst so far. Good pay but that's about it. Menager changing your clock in hours in system so on the end you are not paid for your overtime. Menager making you to stay and threats you that he will fire u or make you to write your leaving note. Breaks in 8 hours work are just 20 minutes long. Short notice about changes in rota. So unprofessional

They're a good company to work for but you need to work hard to achieve your goals of the day. Everyone is friendly. a typical day at work is morning delivery of short life (stuff that has a short use by date) after the stock from the day before is worked. after delivery you will probably do specials which means putting new items into tables before they need to be put on the shop floor which does not happen until thursday and sunday. after specials, your more likely to be on a till for a shift which is nice. you get to meet and greet customers and have a nice little chat before moving onto the next one. if your not on tills then you will be decrating the store and making sure everything is neat and tidy for the next set of customers to destroy again. during the afternoon there should be a milk and long life (stuff that has a long use by date) delivery which again means doing backstock before doing the new stock. then again the decrating will needed to be done again and by the time your part way through your shift should end.

Very demanding. always lots of things to do at the same time. High pressure on managers to achieve targets. Good rate of pay. All working hours gets recorded accurately so even when working overtime you won't loose it.

I work in one of the Aldi stores. I would not recommend it even to my worst enemy. If you want to work with no rights with a company with no human resources the work at Aldi. For them you are going to be a number that they will use as to how they like. You have no voice no rights nothing. you work a shift until 10.30, do not think you are getting out until midnight if you are ucky
cant think of any
long hours, you finish your shift when the manager on duty feels like
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) – London, ENG – 28 September 2014
It requires total flexibility on shift based on weekly Rota. Learned the perfect management and managing people skill. The management system is just perfect, where performance, accuracy and speed counts. The staff member of twenty people all are co-operative and work as a team. The hardest part was working on deliveries at the same time in a shift and the most enjoyable part is the friendly staff and the manager who believes in encouraging, motivating and macro- management system.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – London – 18 November 2016
Fabulous place to work. The pay is excellent, the staff and managers are friendly and easy to get on with. I would however be prepared to work for your excellent pay. We don't just sit on tills scanning shopping all day.
Your day can start as early as 5am and finish at 11pm (of course not in a single shift), you need to put out stock, heavy stock and a lot of it, in only a couple of hours. Throughout the day you replenish this stock as well as running back and forth on the tills. Other different task will be done in-between all that.
However, your day is so busy, you don't even realise the time, it flies by literally. I would defiantly recommend applying they have great benefits and good opportunities to work your way up.
Stock Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 5 November 2016
I was working for ALDI for over a year in the past. My work consisted in filling shelf at night with new prodoucts, products that were sold day before also I was checking if products were not out of date or in poor condition before shop oppening Work wasn`t difficult to be honest I`ve learned a lot about how the things work outside shop working hours. Management always willing to help and we worked in good atmosphere. Also I can`t say nothing bad about other co-workers, people were very friendly and we also tried to do a good team work. The hardest part of the job was always when delivery truck stuck In traffic or something and came late. Then we had to double incoming stock (very time consuming thing to do) and speed up to make sure shop is ready before opening. The most enjoyable part of job was of course a pay day ;)

My day start very early at around 5am to sort out the papers and magazines and start getting ready for the opening at 6am.After this the focus is on serving customers and dealing with deliveries in order to make sure that the store is full and nothing is missing.
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) – london ilford – 13 July 2016
Great company to work for but really crippled by politics and favouritism. All work no play makes jack a dull boy. Literally you hardly get to do anything else whilst working there. After working here I got married to work, slept with the sofa and played with pallets.
