What do other people say about working at Aldi?

  • Best thing

    Some staff are cool and we have 1 or 2 good mangers.

    Worst thing

    Made to work so many different hours, always trying to force you to work over, harrowing you to work. Cant get staff to cover yr till when you need toilet. Aways forcing you to work more than possible, always pushing n some at horrid behaviour.

    1.6

    Aldi Employee, April 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.

    5.5

    Aldi Employee, March 2022

  • Best thing

    First dibs on special buys and the app for rotas is very helpful.
    Overall the store assistants are paid well for their job and seem happy with flexibility.

    Worst thing

    Being in management means that you have less flexibility, I don't feel the pay is enough as the store manager always ensures there is a higher level employee so they don't

    5.0

    Aldi Employee, March 2022

  • Best thing

    Being surrounded by a kind, supportive and hard working team

    Worst thing

    The physical demand. Customers not understanding the aldi concept. The 30min break on a 10/12 hour shift.

    8.6

    Aldi Employee, March 2022

    9.6

    Aldi Employee, March 2022

  • Best thing

    The team and early mornings without customers in the store

    Worst thing

    Having to sit on a till for 6-8hrs for some shifts. Your legs go dead

    9.6

    Aldi Employee, March 2022

  • Best thing

    The pay, the holidays and the people. My workmates are lovely and are easy to work with.

    Worst thing

    The lack of breaks and the travel time. We only get one 30 minute break for a 10 hour shift, not spectacular but not the end of the world.

    9.5

    Aldi Employee, March 2022

  • Best thing

    Decent hours if your in the right store,
    Semi flexible, colleagues mostly nice

    Worst thing

    Progression is based on time and place and if your face fits. If your not fast you will be stuck on tills all day. Usually not enough staff. Sometimes will take hours off you if you worked over contract even if they asked you to come in extra.

    7.8

    Aldi Employee, February 2022

  • Best thing

    The pay and the cool staff (not mangers though, I have never seen such awful management)

    Worst thing

    Managers setting far too high standards that only they can achieve because they have worked there for five plus years and are overly critical on everything you do. Very short breaks. Maximum 7-10 staff in an enormous shop.

    8.0

    Aldi Employee, January 2022

  • Best thing

    Paid break

    Worst thing

    Everything. It is extremely stressful and managers speak to staff like they are nothing. I am constantly penalised for having a physical disability as I can’t work as fast as others. Terrible place to work

    1.8

    ????
    It used to be a good place to work for but, over the past 4 years it has deteriorated

    Worst thing

    If you want less than 30 hrs and are willing to be a drone without a family / social life , then this is the job for you.

    Stressful, lots of pressure

    7.1

  • Best thing

    Getting the jobs done and sometime working as a team

    Worst thing

    Manager and away on the shop floor

    4.2

    Aldi Employee, September 2021

  • Best thing

    While you may start at 6am, you generally finish at 2pm and therefore can enjoy the rest of the day off. You see your rota 4 weeks in advance. The pay is nice. Colleagues are usually nice people. Training is good. You get used to working fast after a while.

    Worst thing

    6AM starts. Finishing a shift at 6PM and potentially starting the next morning at 6AM. The rota constantly being changed; sometimes with only a weeks notice. Prepare to be worked, HARD. No week is the same; different days and different shifts on a weekly basis. 90% of your holidays for the next year must be booked in the November the year before; trying to plan holidays out can be frusting because of this. If you aren't sweating by the end of a shift you aren't working hard enough.

    8.2

    Aldi Employee, September 2021

  • Best thing

    The people that I work with

    Worst thing

    Constantly working at speed and only having 1 half hour break during 10 hour shifts.

    6.8

    Aldi Employee, September 2021

    Worst thing

    Stressful

    8.3

    Aldi Employee, August 2021

  • Best thing

    When you finish your shift and go home.

    Worst thing

    Bad management. No communication. Expects you to always be available if they need extra people to come in short notice. Managers don't respect you.

    2.8

    Aldi Employee, August 2021

  • Best thing

    My collueges and pay

    Worst thing

    Customers

    8.4

    Aldi Employee, August 2021

  • Best thing

    Communication with customers, close to my house

    Worst thing

    Unfair management, tasks depend on who is on shift

    6.4

    Aldi Employee, August 2021

  • Best thing

    It's rewarding and good pay

    Worst thing

    It's extremely challenging, particularly when there's reduced staff

    8.6

    Aldi Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    Busy so time goes relatively quick

    Worst thing

    Everything I suffer with severe anxiety and my job is the majority of the reason

    3.2

    Aldi Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    The only perk is getting to the reduced food first. The team is united - in their hatred of the job

    Literally everything

    4.2

    Aldi Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    7.6

    Aldi Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    Meeting people

    Worst thing

    Its late always

    6.6

    Aldi Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    The pay for a store assistant is good for the work required, however don’t underestimate the hard graft. Deputy pay however is ridiculously low considering the amount of responsibilities, and the company tries to keep the extra £4 on top of your hourly wage when you manage the store alone to a minimum

    Worst thing

    Progression seems none existent even though they’re always advertising salaried roles. The responsibilities for a deputy are barely outweighed by an assistant manager but the pay gap is huge. Company targets are unrealistic and cripple the morale of staff
