    Worst thing

    Very unsocial hours, long hours, can be very boring at times, fast paced, managers always asking you to stay over or work and extra shift


    Aldi Store assistant, July 2022

  • Best thing

    Paid breaks and air con in the summer, unlimited amounts of overtime

    Worst thing

    The management, time crunches, no schedule management, stressful, no consideration for staff, long hours that are made more


    Aldi Store assistant, July 2022

  • 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.
