Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) – Brierley Hill – 15 March 2018
Fast pace. non-stop.I would be cashing tills up or on the till myself or I would be on the shop floor ensuring a smooth running store. Never really had chance for a proper break. As I would constantly busy. The store I worked in was very small so everything would go off sale very quickly. The management would always recognized hard working individuals.

chances of promotion are slim unless you've got the face for it. good and bad days working in aldi, can be enjoyable, and sometimes feel like prison and get treated wrong. the amount you have to do passes the time, but for the work and hours you have to do the breaks are so short.

The Job is without a doubt secure, but extremely taxing on both your home life and your own well being.some aspect of the job become near impossible to complete, but you have to do them. on a side note tho the pay is great.
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Northampton – 18 February 2018
I have been with Aldi less than a year, I started as a store assistant in July 2017 and it wasn’t long until I had talks about a promotion to deputy store manager. I was put on a trial and given certain manager duties to do I.e availability and stock&order (when it was still used), cashing up tills and just generally taking charge a bit more. I received my deputy contract half way through October and officially started my new role on November 1st, as this was my first time in any sort of management role I was expectantly quite nervous to start with but received nothing but help and support the whole time and always made to feel comfortable. I have now been first aid trained, trained on running my own specials shifts and received full safe training, so I can now run the morning set up shifts and evening closes (receiving an extra £4ph when there is no salaried manager in store), I will soon be receiving training on how to do the stores orders which in turn will help when I want to go for my the next promotion to assistant store manager. All in all I’ve had a great experience working for Aldi so far and would definitely recommend working for the company to anybody who is looking at applying.

Aldi is a great company to work for the only thing letting them down is the promotion side..Aldi has great benefits every shop is differently ran but the postions are always changing which I don't like. They take back responsibility alot.

Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Wickford – 8 October 2017
A very busy store from beginning to end of the week. staff are happy and helpful. lack of training in store is a major issue for most members of staff as where they are constantly busy there is little one on one time with management.
ALDI is a great company. I worked in 2 different RDC and unfortunately i noticed massive differences between management methods. Even if the company culture is that everyone is equal, i have seen people treated differently. Is not fair to push the good working people more and more wilst protecting the ones they don t perform at ALDI standards. If you say "everything is wonderfull" you have a good life, but if you dare to try to change something you end up having big problems. This kind of things i have never seen in the previous ALDI RDC in SWINDON.

Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Grays – 14 September 2017
Poor personal life balance, poor higher management, wages are similar to the big four supermarkets unless your an assistant manager despite having to work like a slave. As a deputy you get used and abused day in and day out.
Everything is pretty much in-adequate in my opinion.
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) – Killamarsh – 1 August 2017
The management system has the same applications as a usedsanitary aid, store management has one set of rules higher management has another, you cant win no matter who's rear you're trying to pucker up to
Management, inconsistent hours regardless of contract, they'll always find a way to mess with your pay
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) – Wiltshire – 26 July 2017
The company, which is always looking for employees' development and satisfaction. Great place to start the career or be there for a little bit longer. Perfect place only for strong work ethnic people, hard workers and determined and reliable personalities. Every day is like a routine and is a maniac. The most enjoyable part of the job is your customer satisfaction and repeatable business. Flexible hours, part time-brilliant work life balance position. Full time-forget about life without Aldi.
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) – Crawley, West Sussex – 6 July 2017
- A typical day will include working on an understaffed shift putting you immediately on the back foot - I have learned to manage my time and work extremely efficiently to deliver excellent results and meeting key performance indicator targets (KPI's) - The structure for management is somewhat confusing as as three tiers of management are expected to be able to do the same job specification, however in practise deputy store managers are used to run the day to day operations (this is not reflected if a senior manager is in the building, even if they aren't running a shift) - Overall the atmosphere in the workplace is usually negative, staff are pushed close to the 11 hour legal work time directive to appease the poorly managed structures within the schedule/rota - The hardest part of the job is not being given the resources to achieve targets, yet still being held accountable - The most enjoyable part of the job is learning to task jobs efficiently and correctly
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Scotland – 13 June 2017
Aldi used to be a great place to work. However because of the rate the company is growing staff are expected to do more and more. Basically they want you to be available and flexible from 6am-10pm everyday as these are the hours needed to set the store up in the morning and the opening hours. The plus side is the money is good. I work 25 hours a week (no more due to having 2 young kids) and clear £1100 each month
Money is great. Deputy managers get £11ph and an extra £4ph on top when running the store
Work life balance is difficult, you really work for your money!! Can be very physical working stock etc
