Great salary and benefits but no room for any thought or creativity in the role. Subservience is valued over thinking for yourself. Be prepared to clean freezers with a toothbrush in your suit and tie and working up to an 18 hour day (in extreme cases). A culture of presenteeism rather than efficiency which is very strange for a German company. If you are quite happy being a work horse, given specific tasks and constantly referring to a book for how to approach every situation without any personality, then this could be for you.
Great salary and benefits
Management culture of presenteeism, vs efficient and effective work practices. Bullying culture in some Area Managers
My experience working in Australia is around four years in Logistics area as a supervisor responsible for training and organizing all employees to work in the logistics and supply chain industry. Started a project and develop an android app, a product destined to management, organize and planning all the work ambient known as "Second Mind" recognizing any information added or modified and automatically update this information to the system.
I worked as a warehouse operator at the Stapylton DC.Pay was great.Most incompetent management I've ever seen in a DC. No organization, poor communication, no traffic management, little enforcement of safety practices and practically no training.I also experienced bullying from management and other staff.If you are new to the workforce, and can keep your head down without voicing any concerns then this is a job for you. The moment you become less than an ideal worker, they look for ways to get rid of you. If you have ever worked in a professional warehouse environment then this place will frustrate you incredibly.
Bullying, No training, incompetent management
Don’t even bother applying at this horrible company! No structure at all, bad HR, no work/life balance, expects you to do everything at once while the managers are in the back room on their phones.Your time and effort would be much more appreciated anywhere else but here.
No structure, bad management, work like a robot.
The job is not hard to do but it is hard work. Aldi have a great work process that they adhere to. This process works, making the job so much easier and once you know the process everything falls into line and your day is a lot more structured and allows you to carry out your duties without wasting time doing tasks that are not relevant. Be prepared for hard work and a very varied day as you will be required to multitask.
No two days are the same, so boredom is not an issue
Depending on how busy it is and the length of your shift it can be hard to get all tasks completed
I stayed as long as i could. What was used to be my playground became so physically demanding for me. I have worked with some great people....some I know will be life-long friends. I cried when i left. Other than my relationship with God, my family, some friends, and my deceased partner...my relationship with Aldis one of the longest.
Work life balance...good paying job
Physical intensity of the job
Working at Aldi was NEVER what was described. Management only care about money, not about staff. Equipment is always broken, yet you're expected to perform to peak levels with substandard tools. Time given to pack shelves is equivalent to slave driving. Time given to scan at registers is even worse. Be a robot, don't engage, don't be human. Wprse place I've ever worked.
Hours, tasks, culture
I quit before my 90 day probationary was finished. The most stressful job I've ever had. Everyone gets annoyed with you if you don't do things flawlessly straight away and store managers think its perfectly acceptable to comment on your fitness. The fleet of 20 yr old managers won't include you in casual convos so you quickly find the newest staff to try and befriend and bounce ideas off. Plot twist. You're not actually allowed to talk to anyone. Including customers.
pay and short shifts
Short shifts also... some starting at 5pm.
The store manager for the store I worked at had bad communication, doesnt train staff, bad attitude, has no people skills and only cares about them self. Management dont train their staff, Area manager doesn't deliver on their promises, training is minimal if any. Treat staff badly, rosters are pathetic. Wouldnt recommend Aldi..
no training, un realistic, treat staff badly, bad communication
Was hired three months before Christmas as a part time permanent and on the next day of Boxing Day was fired. The staff was good but the upper management lacks the human touch.. The good parts was working with the team and the store manager being a true leader.
Aldi provides flexible working hours and decent pay rate, including Sunday rates! There is a lot to learn and it is very fast paced but once in the swing of things you’ll learn to love it. Great work culture and staff are always given appropriate meal breaks and consideration when assigning jobs. Love the job!
Pay, hours, work culture, stability
Unusual hours, busy over Xmas period
Aldi Distribution Centre is an excellent place to work and I have learnt many skills from working in a fast paced Distribution Centre. Working hours on my shift were 5am to 11am with a half hour break, however could be longer depending on demand.
Very physical job
