  • Head office doesn’t understand the frontline

    Do selectors think Aldi head office understands what's happening where they work?

    People think head office doesn’t understand what’s happening where they work

    How we know this

    19% of people think that this employer’s head office or owners have a good understanding of what’s really happening where they work

    Based on information from 53 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, the role of head office should be to support the people on the frontline serving customers.

    To do that properly, the company’s owners or head office need to have a good understanding of what’s really happening on the frontline. This is especially important when a company owns multiple locations.

  • Managers are respectful

    Do selectors at Aldi feel treated by respect by their managers?

    Most people feel treated with respect by their managers

    How we know this

    69% of people say they’re treated with respect by their managers

    Based on information from 51 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Everyone should get treated with respect by their managers. You shouldn’t feel discriminated against or bullied, and if you have a problem you should be able to speak to someone about it.

Here’s a recent review that mentions management:

  • 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

  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    Do selectors work the same number they are contracted for at Aldi?

    Only some people work the same number of hours they’re contracted for

    How we know this

    53% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    Based on information from 57 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.
