hard place to work for hard working people
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Hampshire7 January 2019
good place and money for skyvers only!!!, nightmare for people who work hard and with passion and believe they will be paid off. the more you do the more flexible you are the more is expected from you.

Hard work but can be rewarding. no work life balance. no progression.
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  North West28 November 2018
The job itself is easy, its just general retail duties, stack shelves and serve customers. There is no real progression its just a carrot that is dangled down to all employees. Money is not great, its good for supermarket pay but terrible compared to the rest of the job sector. Mangers earn less than the national average of 25k. some difficult managers make the job stressful but if you are lucky enough to not end up with these then the the job is not too bad. no work life balance can be in from 5am or finish at 2am. mixed shifts with days off not together. honestly i would avoid unless you are desperate. at the end of the day its a job and its money coming in. The astronomically high turnover speaks for itself.
Pros
the staff
Cons
too many

Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Leicestershire15 November 2018
If you like to work and not really have a work life balance then this is the place for you, depending on your store depends on if you can progress or not and whatever Aldi say everyone in store does not do everything.
Pros
the people you work with
Cons
long hours, different shifts from day to day

challenging, hard-work but gratifying to those with passion
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear13 November 2018
working at Aldi is a challenge, day in day out, the company don't try to hide this and is explained immediately upon starting with the company. the business runs on a model with limited numbers of staff and therefore a lot is demanded of their staff, to those that have energy and passion it is a very enjoyable workplace.

not worth the money
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) –  Gloucestershire28 October 2018
may pay good but they expect too much.
NO work/life balance they change shifts at a moments notice and expect you to change whatever plans you may have made
Never enough staff working the shifts
Only half an hours break and you could be there for 12 hours
Pros
good pay
Cons
stressful, very long shifts

poor company
Aldi Deputy Manager (Current Employee) –  Manchester16 October 2018
Poor management and job advancement. a lot of stress for poor money (for what you have to do) no difference in the roles only the massive pay gap. my advise if you want to move forward in your career look else were becuse no matter how good you are chances of promotion is zero.

Deputy Manager (Former Employee) –  Manchester23 September 2018
I had been working as a manager for one year. As a deputy manager I was challenged every day with different tasks, which included organising the job tasks for my team and making sure everything is being finished to a high standard. I was expected to implement any changes which could improve store performance.
Pros
Lots of responsibility.
Cons
Bad work and life balance.

Negative Place
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Burton-On-Trent, Staffordshire20 August 2018
its a job that could once justify its work requirements, on arriving over 4 years ago the principle was that you get payed one and a half peoples wage for doing 2 peoples jobs. This did not follow when minimum wage was raised and in my experience at a store which was taking between 1or2/3rd more than it was built to take, the workload often became unreasonable, no work environment nor any regards for personal life if you were young and didn't have a child. Overall its a job that taught me a lot but i will not miss it. In my earlier years of working there, legalities would often be looked over.
Pros
Never bored
Cons
Too many

Deputy Manager (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester3 August 2018
The company is good to work for if you're willing, you'll always be doing something and won't ever have an easy shift, the employees are all friendly and work well together if everyone is willing to work hard.
Pros
Always busy

Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Telford26 June 2018
the hardest part of the job is trying to fit all your job roles in to the time given they are very strict with productivity and constantly made to feel the pressure.
The team are amazing and can really pull together to make the job more enjoyable.
The management system is very strict and have a lot of responsibility, its trying to make sure you still hold the standards even with the added pressure.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours and strict on productivity

Deputy Manager (Former Employee) –  West Midlands7 June 2018
Recruitment process took forever. No feedback regarding how did you do... Aldi pay you well... yes.. On their website they will worn you that job is tough however you cannot imagine how hard it is. I am in my 20, and I was struggling physically with this job my legs, back, neck even wrists was in pain constantly. You don't have when to catch a breath. If you stuck on main till you are struggling to even go to the toilet. Aldi will push you behind your limits. I do feel sorry for all the people which are still working there...
Pros
paid break
Cons
everything else

Deputy Manager (Current Employee) –  Liskeard7 June 2018
Unfortunately although friendly Aldi has a rigid management system which stifles individuality and creativity. If you want an unthinking steady job in a good environment this is it. Huge difference in pay between Deputy Manager and Assistant Manager.
Pros
Friendly Growing Company
Cons
Pay and Rota doesnot Rotate !
