Deputy Store manager (Current Employee) – Scotland – 23 February 2018
The Job is without a doubt secure, but extremely taxing on both your home life and your own well being.some aspect of the job become near impossible to complete, but you have to do them. on a side note tho the pay is great.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – East Midlands – 5 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.

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
Selector (Former Employee) – Atherstone – 1 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.
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.
Assitant Manager (Current Employee) – Kent – 19 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.
Good basic rate of pay
No work life balance, no gratitude, poor training, poor standards of work
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Salisbury – 17 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.
Paid lunch, Double time on bank holidays, 28days holiday
Long hours, no overtime, shift work, night shifts, hard to progress up
Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Peterlee – 17 October 2017
its very hard work. but if you work hard, are fully flexible and can work as many hours they want any time they want the pay and benefits can be excellent. had i not been a single parent i would still be working there but the way the company works it was just not possible to stay any longer than i did.
long hours, ever changing shifts, no set rota, hours can be cut or added with no notice
Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Ashington, Northumberland – 15 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.
Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) – Atherstone, Warwickshire – 15 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.

Company is focussed on its people achieveing their best, while supporting progression at the right time. Amazing job security and a happy, fun working environment while remaining faced paced and friendly with regular and new customers.
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Wickford – 8 October 2017
A very busy store from beginning to end of the week. staff are happy and helpful. lack of training in store is a major issue for most members of staff as where they are constantly busy there is little one on one time with management.
