Can be great.
Store Assistant (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands20 November 2017
Work life to home life balance can be stressful, just talk it out. 9/10 times they will sort it for you. Lots to do every day, and it can differ as long as you want to do the work. If you don't bother doing the work properly then you will be shoved on a till. They need fast and enthusiastic workers. Pay is good and continues to get better every year. Staff get along well, have a laugh and a joke while working, makes the day go well. Work can get stressful when people don't turn up to work, time limits are tight if you are short staffed. Some managers are hard to get along with but you figure it out with time. Lots of time/chances to get promoted (i myself am getting promoted very soon after nearly 2 years). Overall i would recommend, as long as you want to progress and are not just lazy.
Pros
Aldi benefits and promotions
Cons
Other staff can be lazy which makes your job harder

Served a purpose
Stock Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, Lincolnshire14 November 2017
I had no intention to stay for the long term, however, it served a fair purpose during my 3 year undergraduate degree. The pay is good for the sector and it is basic, achievable work.

Bullying environment with very young inexperienced managers. No consistency and an untrustworthy workplace. If your "face fits" policy with pathetic politics. An unhealthy work ethic

Attitude of Supervisors, Team leaders and management

Hard Working and Rewarding
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Ewell, Surrey5 November 2017
The nature of this business is that it is constantly changing, no day can be categorised as a "typical day at work" because every day is different. Working for ALDI has given me an insight into working efficiently to meet deadlines and constantly improving performance. I feel that I have strongly developed my people management skills, including performance management and coaching. The hardest part of the job is running the store to be as efficient as possible, including everything from labour costs to price changes . The most enjoyable part of the job are the company benefits and salary.
Pros
Salary, company benefits
Cons
Long working hours

Hard but rewarding
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  East Midlands5 November 2017
Has been a great place to work when you’ve a great team to work with. Get the wrong people around you and it can be soul destroying. It’s really hard & physically demanding work but the pay is really really good. When the pay is no longer enough to outweigh the dread of going there you know it’s time to move on. Shame as at times it has been a fabulous place to work and I’ve made some great friends along the way.
Pros
Money
Cons
Really long hours on top of a commute

the staff
Store Assistant (Current Employee) –  Northampton4 November 2017
recommend for how welcomed you feel when you first start, like a family bond, management needs to be more motivated, and to start motvate its own staff, they tend to just hide in the offices and do nothing, and leave the poor staff to take the matters in their own hand
Pros
remuneration
Cons
long hours
