    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 :'-(

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

    Pros

    Great place to work over the summer if you're a college student. Very hard to beat their pay. I liked my bosses and coworkers. Stay busy.

    Cons

    Wouldn't want to make a career out of it. Hours were never regular. Can be boring and had some safety concerns working alone on a slippery floor in their freezer. Can be hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the freezer floors are clear of ice
