    I worked at ALDI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + industry leading wages
      Associates - $12/hr, Shift Mgr - $16/hr,
      SMT - $23/hr, Store Manager - $75,000+/yr
    + great work environment
    + excellent training
    + health, dental, vision, life insurance, 401k
    + 40-50 hr/wk with paid overtime

    Very fast paced so work hours fly by.
    I loved working at Aldi. The pay was great! Benefits great! Was training to be a store manager so a lot was expected of me but I was totally up for it. My store manager loved my work, associates loved my fairness, customers loved me.

    Cons

    + work/life balance
    + walked 28,000 steps/day!!!

    Never thought I would be fired for clocking in only minutes late!!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to reconsider their firing practice. Totally unfair to be fired by somebody who has never seen you or your work. Voluntary turnaround is out of control due to work load. I get it, its not for everyone, but value those that you do have. I was looking forward to putting in 15-20 years of my life into this company while I watched the average employee last only 3-5. Not disgruntled, more like heartbroken :'-(

    Caissier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaumetz-lès-Loges (France)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ALDI (Beaumetz-lès-Loges (France)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Depot de CV et LM dans un magasin en suite attendre l'appel du responsable de secteur qui est en suite chargé de vous donner un RDV, Les questions sont différentes pour un emploi saisonnier et un emploi annuel en tant qu'employé, en tant qu'employé il y a plus de question approfondie afin de mieux connaître votre motivation, mais en générale ce n'est pas très compliqué , il faut en revanche grande motivation et capacité d'adaptation très poussée car si on fait la caisse chez aldi on fait d'autres choses comme faire cuir du pain ainsi que les emballés.
