    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

    Good pay
    Flexible scheduling
    Decent healthcare coverage

    Cons

    You’re paid well, but there’s often a higher expectation to complete duties than can be accomplished
    There’s a lot of upper management changeover with individual stores

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a clearer standard so stores aren’t constantly playing catch up when a new manager takes over

    Pros

    Great pay, overtime is always available, benefits are next to none

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement within the company, you top out on the pay scale after 3 years. Not much vacation time until you’ve been there a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay scales so employees who’ve been there longer then 3 years can continue to climb. Give opportunities for advancement at the company in employees respective positions.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are better than similar jobs

    Cons

    The work load expected out of everybody from the bottom to the higher ups is crazy. You WILL GET BURNED OUT OR INJURED if you push yourself that hard everyday. It's unrealistic

    Advice to Management

    Schedule 1 more person a day to help with the load. That way if someone is sick or calls out then the other 2 people aren't screwed!
