Stockroom Assistant (Current Employee) – Eccles, Greater Manchester – 25 June 2018
During a shift at work things are very intense but all staff members work together and very hard to get tasks completed. I have learnt alot in my time working for aldi and this has enabled me to become a fast paced worker not onky on my own but also in groups to help others succeed like myself. Working for aldi is a fast paced enviroment some days it can seem hard but you find ways to make it work smoothly to the best of your ability so i dont believe the role i have is hard. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with customers becuase you meet differant types of people on a daily basis.
Was a very fast paced and often challenging place to work, with minimal breaks and maximum effort required for the entirety of every shift. Stock replenishment was timed and management were constantly on your back, with no time to take a breath, but that all comes with the great hourly rate!

Overall Aldi is not a bad company to work for, The pay is better than most retail outlets, and the bond you make with your fellow colleagues can last a lifetime. once you get your working mentality to the same level its a great job and career opportunity, but make no mistake, it is hard work and very fast paced. i would always recommend people to have a go, but bare in mind, not everyone is suited to the Aldi way.
my only regret is for not sticking to my guns, an biding my time till promotion.
Stock Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 29 December 2017
Hectic days at work, as expected due to being the busiest store in England. I learened to work in a fast paced environment as calmly as possible i.e putting out stock and helping customers out at the same time and still managing to work in a time limit. Hardest part of the job would be working pallets during the day time and still having an expected time to finish each delivery. A lot of pressure.
Good pay, paid lunch, double pay on public holidays, socialising.
Long hours, finishing after the store assistants (even when we finish before them
Stock Assistant (Former Employee) – Oxford – 8 September 2017
Hard work on night shift 10 till 6 to stock the whole store in one delivery of upto 30+ pallets of stock but a very good company to work for. I really liked working at aldi great people to work with good management always there to help if you need them.pay was great with lots of perks christmas bonus of 40 pounds worth of vouchers to spend in store unfortunately no staff discount but the goods are so cheap and excellent quality.
Really good pay rates and suitable hours if you like nights or days.
Lots of walking and lifting at pace to get deliverys complete
You pretty much do the same thing every day that you're there. Good for getting into a routine, the only thing that changes is the work load. sometimes it's really busy, sometimes it's not. The early morning starts aren't for everyone (5am)
Stock Assistant (Current Employee) – Sheldon – 8 July 2017
Great place to work however can be repetitive and can't keep to contracted hours, hours are very flexible and can sometimes be more than than contracted however they've been struggling to get contracted hours across the store.
I enjoyed working for Aldi, the staff always ensured that it was a happy and safe place to work. as a young person I learned valuable life skills whilst working at aldi, and will take these through life with me.
Stock Assistant (Former Employee) – Wolverhampton, West Midlands – 19 June 2017
I learned allot from working at aldi and i loved the enviroment, they kept wanting to push me further but were very understandable. Whilst the work can be intense it was very rewarding, highly reccomend working with such an amazing company
Great colleagues to work with, management sometimes not listening to what you have to say, constantly held back from progression as other managers given far too many chances, having good member of staff leave due to not having opinion heard or nothing changing when meetings were conducted. Rubbish hours due to contract.
Stock Assistant (Former Employee) – Mold – 13 March 2017
i enjoyed working at aldi, just the speed you have to complete a task is unrealistic for any human to complete in those timelines but other than that the pay is good friendly people to work with and is a easy job to understand
As long as you have no commitments ( although they do try and accommodate you if you do), you get good hours. Thoroughly enjoyed working there. Management progression is very slow in store, unless you're right up there, you won't really get past deputy for years.
It was a daunting feeling when you were given a set amount of pallets to do and then given the time frame. Odds were always stacked against the team but as always pulled through no matter what, were always willing to stay on a little later in order for the delivery to be complete. It almost inspired me to go above and beyond my job role in order to make it easier on the rest of the staff. I enjoyed working there a lot and if i hadn't of been going to university I would of stayed there without a doubt!
Tended to work over time for most of the shifts (unpaid)
