    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 :'-(

    Pros

    Great benefits
    This company cares about you!
    Great pay
    Awesome culture

    Cons

    I don't think there is any if your up for a challenge!
    You cannot promote past a store manager without a degree so if your looking for advancement above store level this may not be the job for you!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    Pros

    managers, coworkers and district managers are amazing. everyone cares about one another. 100% willing to work with you on anything and invite ideas. feel very appreciated.

    Cons

    its a lot of work, labor wise and only a few employees are on at a time but thats how prices stay so low and the pay off is great. my only real con is long hours almost everyday but you get a good paycheck!!

    I worked at ALDI part-time

    Pros

    They offer you good perks and salary but you must be committed and embrace the company values.

    Cons

    The recruitment process is very strict and if you fail, you must wait for 12 months to apply again.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to embrace different nationalities and prioritize the interview instead group assessment.
