    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 :'-(

    Good Pay
    Excellent people
    Good holiday times/employee benefits

    Cons

    Very stressful at times

    Advice to Management

    Management really depends on the individual. My store manager was exceptional, whereas some deputy managers were too serious. That goes for any company really, though.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, Hours and pay. Majority of the customers are very loyal and are very satisfied at what sells there.

    Cons

    Need to hire 2 or 3 more store associates. Theres usually 4 store associates per shift. It would be better if there was about 6 associates in a store. Too much stress for an associate to do work that's equivalent to 3 other employees work.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate the work and be more patient with the new workers there.

    Add shifts, a lot of us need set start/end times with kids. Keep hours to less than 8
