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

Great place to work for.
Selector (Former Employee) –  Atherstone1 November 2017
Aldi is committed to investing into its workers, and allowed me to develop and grow during my part time years in the warehouse within Atherstone. Though the hours were long they were worth the effort as you felt valued and your time whilst working for them.

Nice place to work
Store Assistant / Deputy manager (Current Employee) –  Coulsdon27 October 2017
Fun place to work, where you can meet many people from different cultures. A typical day at work is a busy day but time goes very quick. I really enjoyed working there.

Can be quite physical especially if not used to food retail
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London23 October 2017
Salary is very good, but work can be quite demanding.
Stores are quite small so work load may seem heavy due to high footfall but low staff count or high turnover of staff
Pros
salary
Cons
workload

Trainee Manager (Former Employee) –  Droitwich, Worcestershire23 October 2017
What can i say about aldi?

Head office were wonderful, very comprehensive in securing the best individuals, however the attitude and development of staff ends there, the company in store is totally unjust and unfair among words of bullying.

Good pay, if you work to the death
Assitant Manager (Current Employee) –  Kent19 October 2017
Aldi has some fantastic opportunities of promotion if you willing to give everything and more.
There is little no praise you are solely managed on what you did not achieve. Rotas should be up 4 weeks in advance but you are luck to know week by week. You regularly 'breech' where you do not have a mimium 11 hour rest between shifts. If you are a Deputy or Store assistant you no longer get overtime so expect +40 hours with no extra.
There is absolutely no work life balance but somehow they seem to believe there is?
If you want to progress at a store assistant level, go for it and leave as soon as you have what you need.
Pros
Good basic rate of pay
Cons
No work life balance, no gratitude, poor training, poor standards of work

Fast paced, challenging but fun
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) –  Salisbury17 October 2017
Working at Aldi has improved my work ethic, where a fast pace and excellent customer relations go hand in hand. This job can be tiring at times, but on the whole, it is a good job to have. The team act as a team should, shoulder to shoulder, through thick and thin, there is a great level of camaraderie.
Pros
Paid lunch, Double time on bank holidays, 28days holiday
Cons
Long hours, no overtime, shift work, night shifts, hard to progress up

Terrible workplace
Store Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ashington, Northumberland15 October 2017
The management was extremely poor and on one or more occasion refused to promote people who should be promoted with poor excuses for not doing so. They would ring you up and give you half an hour to get to work on your day off, cutting your hours if you didn't agree to come in. only bonus was the pay was good.

Hate it
Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Atherstone, Warwickshire15 October 2017
First of all, the managers do not give a toss, if theres a customer complaining and is actually legit and you actually want to help them they still dont care! The "managers" are young and think they're ahead of everyone else, arrogant and disgusting!!! There is only one manager that everyone likes and he is lovely, but seriously all the rest are actually morons, look down at you ect, the job it self would be ok if the staff were actually decent, everyones too up themselves and dont know how to have a laugh, stay away as nothing is enjoyable here.
Pros
Money
Cons
Everything pretty much
