    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 have been working at ALDI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very grateful for the full time hours and the benefits are pretty sweet. I pay about 35 dollars out of each paycheck for a great vision, medical and dental plan. Paid vacation is accrued relatively rapidly and they also offer paid sick/personal days which is huge. If you dont mind hard work, this is the job for you. You are constantly working on something and there is always something to do. Time flies by and, before you know it, your shift is over.

    Cons

    Like I said in the pros, it is hard work. A lot of lifting and moving. Sure, you get to sit while you're ringing, but if you're not ringing, you're moving. This can be hard on your body if you're not careful. Also, if you're not a morning person, then you won't like waking up to start your shift at 5 or 6am depending on where you live.
