Reviews from Aldi employees

  • Best thing

    A small team of colleges which helps when taking into account abilities and reliability. Decent pay for retail, possiblity of extra hours on a regular basis. Lots to do and always something to work on.

    Worst thing

    Store managers and area managers have too many targets which they put before anything else. Upper management/CEO visits are the only time we are fully staffed and the store is stocked and tidy. Repetitive in terms of daily task, you will do the same thing everyday whatever your position in store.

    Aldi Employee, September 2022

  • 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
