  • Best thing

    Paid breaks, good team

    Worst thing

    Shifts tend to be either 5am-2pm or 2-10pm, there is no in-between so this isn't always great for body clock

  • Best thing

    When we are busy time passing quick.
    Flexible shifts. Fine payrate. Paid breaks.

    Worst thing

    Bad management who doesnt listen. Very discriminative with Europeans, they have no respect at all.
    Aldi want you to run as fast as you can and do everything by yourself.
