Fine for the pay but ultimately not worth it
Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Havant, Hampshire – 15 May 2018
Working at Aldi is extremely hard work, physically and emotionally. The pay is excellent for retail or service work, but this is totally outweighed by robotic management that could not care less about the fact that you're a human being with needs and things to worry about besides work. Very demanding, very stressful. At the beginning, their ethos of high productivity and efficiency (how they keep their prices so low!) seems like a great idea, and it is, but the human cost of this is enormous. Aldi expect the job to be your life, and if you aren't willing to sacrifice your personal life to be fully committed to your job, then you are seen as a lesser human being.
