  • Best thing

    Successful company no fears about closing.

    Worst thing

    Mainly Immature work force and management. Most never had really hard jobs and find working a distraction from their social life instead of a need to work to live.

  • Best thing

    The pace, its always go go go. Always something to do

    Worst thing

    Although they're paid, the length of breaks need revising after the 8hr shifts, you could do 10 or 12 hours and still have a 30 minute break

  • Best thing

    The customers

    Worst thing

    Shift changes to often
    Changes to rota
    Working late without being asked its expected
    Lack of understanding if you are a single parent as childcare needs to be in place and then too often shifts are changed.
    Lack of support and low understanding of staff with addition needs despite Aldi having a good understanding of this on their online training, however it is not practiced amongst management.
    No physical training no demonstrations on how to use equipment everything is online training which you are expected to do in your own time.
    A lot of accidents with pallets .
    Management bark orders they have no manners no one says please or thank you, however constant criticism of what staff are not doing very well on.
    Very unprofessional ways of communicating there is no system to contact via Email it is a WhatsApp system and often management Read your messages and leave you on read.
    Unfriendly environment a lot of Bulkying and Bitching

    Aldi Store assistant, December 2023

  • Best thing

    The staff are very friendly and the store itself is lovely to work in. Paid breaks etc.

    Worst thing

    Sometimes it can be stressful as they want alot from you regarding finishing at certain times with pallets. We get no discount whereas other supermarkets do, even lidl get 10% discount.

    9.4

    Aldi Store assistant, December 2023

  • Best thing

    Pay, as most comments are here.
    Solid team, there’s an ethic to some that is unmatchable.
    Helping local communities/foodbanks/too good to go scheme is solid.

    Worst thing

    Higher management, area management. Most are new to role, without a clue as to how retail actually works. It’s just spreadsheet management.
    Issues with productivity to people, O.E can fluctuate but the people aren’t there; as you cannot backfill; therefore you have to suffer.
    No correct initial training or support; if I hadn’t had previous job roles when asked to join the company, I’d have sunk and been allowed to.
    Was poached to join, had several things offered to me during the interview process, which have now been completely forgotten about. I was sold a picture that was incredibly untrue, and now I am regretting doing so.
    Mental health/work life balance is non-existent. Just turn up; switch off and crack on. As long as the train keeps rolling; you’re just another number.
    Constantly brought up by senior staff due to being employed on higher pay and my salary spread to the mgmt team; isn’t that breach of gdpr? Feel like it’s used as leverage.
    No real HR system or actual knowledge of HR processes, especially within management teams and disciplinary processes, especially from what i’ve heard and seen.

    The pay

    Worst thing

    Customers and military standards

    4.2

    Aldi Store assistant, September 2023

  • Best thing

    The pay is slightly better than pay at other leading supermarkets and the team with a couple exemptions is fun to work with.

    Worst thing

    The pay does not reflect the outrageous amount of work that is expected of staff. You are ran into the grind without proper breaks, expected to work 3 jobs at once including cleaning, stock, and managing a till in incredibly busy stores. This not only infuriates customers but staff also

    7.6

    Aldi Store assistant, July 2023

  • Best thing

    Being out the way of the management and being your own boss while out on the road.

    Worst thing

    Wagons are filthy and aren't given enough time to clean or the keys to the shed where the cleaning equipment is. Same people day in day out either have it easy and get one run, and then just doss about untill they have worked the amount of hours they feel like and the other group of people get consistently overworked and are expected to just be okay with the blatant favouritism.
