  • Best thing

    Paid breaks. Amazing and team based staff members. Different shifts all the time so I’m not always doing the same thing.

    Worst thing

    Sometimes shifts can be extremely long and draining. Not enough hourly productivity allowance, there is always more to be done and not enough staff. Not just at the store I work in but I have seen it in other stores when I have worked there too.

    Aldi Employee, May 2022

  • Best thing

    Paid breaks that are enforced to be taken in full, app for rotas, flexible shift patterns.

    Worst thing

    Everyone area manager and above has no clue whats actually happening in the stores. Store assistants are treated ok but middle store management are treated appalingly.
    Training is almost nonexistent unless you really push for it and then you feel like you're annoying your superiors.
