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

N/A (Current Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire8 August 2018
Money is tempting, but you are worked like animals, the management system is poor. Mangers look at what they have achieved and give no thanks to those who work hard!

Varied, Fast- Paced Role
Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cumbria16 July 2018
This is a very varied and fast-paced role which makes this the ideal supermarket job if you get bored doing the same thing everyday and need more autonomy.

The benefits and salary are very good and performance reviews have been improved. The company itself have invested in its employees and the effort made by them overall shows.

The thing that ruins this is the tyrant middle management, unrealistic targets and lack of compassion or care for employees and staff turnover or professional development.

The work life balance is usually poor as you work irregular shift patterns.
Pros
Salary, varied, fast -pased
Cons
irregular shift patterns, poor management, uncompassionate and lack of E.I.

Enjoy the benefits and get out when you can.
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Atherstone, Warwickshire5 July 2018
Enjoy earning some money then Aldi is the place for you! This is not somewhere you can build a career unless you are mentally and physically able to run yourself into the ground 48 hours a week. Exceptional salaries and benefits for all, however the downside is that work life balance goes out the window. You will be expected to hit unreasonable productivity targets that affect everything you do within your store. Despite the success the company is not looking after the people within the stores and continues to let them 'burnout' with no duty of care from higher up. Area Managers have very little people skills and no experience of how a store works. The Area Managers are the biggest issue with this company but not the only one, if your face fits you get away with whatever you want. I fit doesn't you will not survive.
Pros
Money, Money, Money!
Cons
Working hours, Work Life Balance, Culture, Expectations

Hard work but rewarding
Warehouse (Selector) Picker (Current Employee) –  Chelmsford24 June 2018
Keeping up with Pick rates can be tough and can be very hard work. Although the hours are based on an 8 hour shift, this is not usually the case. if work is don't you go home early (not paid) and if not finished you could be doing up to 3 hours extra each night, no negotiations.
Management are good when you need help or advice and always available to ask any questions
The most enjoyable part of my day is achieving the daily picks required.

Great company but have areas to improve on
SALES ASSISSTANT (Former Employee) –  Herefordshire22 June 2018
Aldi is a great company to work for, great schemes, hierarchy in management, although it is hard to progress in the company now. Great salary and bonuses. Consideration towards employee's with children ( that is a recent one I've heard they introduced sadly while I was working in there this was not the case). Aldi is out there to make a difference and they are constantly improving.
Pros
Salary and bonuses
Cons
Harsh management style

Not the best place to work
Store Assistant (Part-time) (Former Employee) –  Wolverhampton, West Midlands30 April 2018
not a nice place to work. The money is good per hour but you will never get full time hours...only part time. Everything you do is timed and they don't give you enough time to complete the job!
