ALDI Employee Review

Higher pay than other retailer but too stressful

The pay is good for retail assistant but they expect a lot from the worker with bench mark requirements. Workplace injury is common when I work there.

Same role

Not supportive and uses you

I worked at aldi for about 4 months and I was told that They don’t need me anymore because I don’t meet the probation standards, I was good at the register but I was slower at running load because they never got me to do it, I was always sitting at the register I only did the load running like 7 times in 4 months and they expected me to perfect it. I hurt my back/hip at work and they did not consider that and still expected me to perform my best even though it was ongoing pain. They use employees for 3 months and fire them at the end of probation period and hire new ones when they need to and that’s why aldi is always short staffed with 3 people running the store, they pay you 2 dollars more than other stores and make you work to the bone for it.

Pros

Good staff

Cons

Not supportive, expect to much

Same role

Fast paced & demanding

While I was employed here, from the gecko you were pressured into knowing everything in store & what to do. Now if you slip up example being not fast enough, watch out. I had a very demanding DSM who would push me til I nearly collapsed of exhaustion, & this is normal to them.I was constantly pushed, wasn't allowed to talk to customers. Constantly put down.You will not have a family balanced life.

Pros

Co workers

Cons

Nothing
