Not a bad start in life
Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Enfield29 October 2018
It's a great company to work with. You have to work hard though, the managers are very hands on help you and support you. The only problem is that they won't let you work more than 40hrs a week, as they have to pay a premium rate for every hour worked in excess of 40hrs a week. The store manager has to justify these premium hours allowed to the employee to the head office, so they would not let any member of staff to cross this limit. The good thing is that only the hard working staff will stay and get experienced enough, so if you survive more than a year then you are very likely to be promoted and likely to get the increment in the wages and wouldn't be looking to work the extra hours.
Pros
great promotion opportunities
Cons
the hours are capped at 40/week

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

Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hythe26 October 2018
hours always changed without notice, under appreciated, do not stick to your contracted hours, worked there for three years and did so much extra without any thanks. lack of communication and uncertainty, you are just a replaceable number. made me ill.
Pros
better hourly rate than a lot of jobs
Cons
everything else about the job

Well paid and good experience
Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Alton13 October 2018
Hard work, but good learning and pay. Although the store manager was good, some of the assistant managers weren't very effect and were quite demotivating in their style. Quite physical work, pressured to work fast and with time restraints. There was no regular shift pattern but the staff were friendly. The experience I gained was really good and I did most of the roles within the store rather than just sitting on a till all day.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
High pressure to get stuff done in tight timescales

No Life
Store Assistant (Current Employee) –  Leicester, Leicestershire18 September 2018
Poorly devised Rota's Constantly make you work late nights and weekends, even when you have explained the reason to the manager why you are unable to work late nights and every weekend, there is no compromise, they just say you are working in retail.
Not had one weekend off since I started.
Absolutely useless managers and very arrogant.
Pros
Salary Ok
Cons
No Life and Managers don't care

Selector (Current Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire14 September 2018
Good company to work for, provides great facilities for the employees, from the canteen to the changing rooms and toilets.
Aldi gives high expectations on the daily targets, if you are able to meet them at the start of your job, you will have not any issues in the rest of your career in there.
Hard working for this company pays off, and its one of the only distribution centers you will be more worried about getting your job done instead of looking at your watch.
If you are a hard worker, i highly recommend you ALDI
Pros
Salary, facilities, work environment
Cons
Rotation shifts, unset finish times

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Chester, Cheshire11 September 2018
Pay well, but shift pattern and T and Cs are awful. Would not work for them again for double the money, extra unpaid hours before and after every shift are expected

Store Assistant (Current Employee) –  North West9 September 2018
This is a good company to work for however you are expected to work unsociable hours and long shift, must be very hard working to work here.
I have learnt a lot at this company but there isn't many opportunities to step up your career with them.
management is ok but could be better.
The hardest part of the job is when there isn't enough staff as you are expected to do double the amount of work and it is harder to hit the targets that they give you.
I enjoyed parts of this job however can get very tedious if you are put on a till all day.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Unsociable hours

Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Devon9 September 2018
This is a great company to work for, if you don't have children or other commitments alongside work. The work/life balance was not great for me, and they were not very accommodating for my childcare situation. However, I have heard that this has now improved since I left the company.
Pros
Great salary
Cons
