What Aldi employees say about their job

  • 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 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

    Worst thing

    Stress on busy days

    7.0

    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.

    1.1

    Aldi Assistant manager, November 2023

  • Best thing

    Money, good hours, flexible shifts if need be, if you need certain days off they are good at helping you get them, good banter in the workplace between staff, always backed up if there is a rude occurrence with a customer

    Worst thing

    Very stressful, customers are rude, too much to do with very little staff, managers are lazy and leave everything to the store assistants while they get paid more money, they don’t properly train people how to do things and expect them to just know, bad for just putting people on a till and leaving them on it for 10 hours, there is no staff discount and you’re scrutinised if you call in sick, you will probably have to work most weekends so say goodbye to your social life

    7.1

    Aldi Store assistant, August 2022

  • 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 Store assistant, September 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

    6.8

    Aldi Deputy manager, July 2021

  • 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.

    7.6

    Aldi HGV class 1 driver, May 2021

  • 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.
