    9.4

    Employee, May 2021

    • £9.55 per hour
    • Under 18 years old
  • Best thing

    Set shifts, CPC training ect paid for by Aldi. 4 weeks annual sick pay, 4 weeks holiday pay, pension, nice trucks

    Worst thing

    The worst things are more the additional jobs that come with delivering groceries, the shop stockroom are always a mess and often no room so I end up having to make space before I can tip my trailer, the stores are under enough pressure as us drivers and the stockroom becomes our problem cause we need to get the stock off our trailer. Favouritism is also an issue amongst/between Management and Drivers.

    Employee, May 2021

    • £13.50 per hour
    • 25–34 years old
  • Best thing

    The pay is good. Shifts have been fairly consistent so far.

    Worst thing

    Expected to work at a fast past for long periods of time, which can cause mental and physical strain. Customers can be rude. Other staff can be rude or short tempered when you need help, even though you’re new. Thought I would be doing 15 hours and throughout the interview I was told that was okay, but I have had to work 18-20 hours each week instead, which I was not aware would happen when I took the job.

    The store runs a tight team so if colleagues calls in sick, the workload can get heavy.

    The fellow staff who you work alongside. Definitely help make the job more fun and less stressful.
