    I worked at ALDI full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + industry leading wages Associates - $12/hr, Shift Mgr - $16/hr, SMT - $23/hr, Store Manager - $75,000+/yr + great work environment + excellent training + health, dental, vision, life insurance, 401k + 40-50 hr/wk with paid overtime Very fast paced so work hours fly by. I loved working at Aldi. The pay was great! Benefits great! Was training to be a store manager so a lot was expected of me but I was totally up for it. My store manager loved my work, associates loved my fairness, customers loved me.

    Cons

    + work/life balance + walked 28,000 steps/day!!! Never thought I would be fired for clocking in only minutes late!!

    Former Employee - Deputy Manager in Limerick, Limerick

    I worked at ALDI full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    wages increase the longer you are there

    Cons

    6 am starts eventually take their toll, depending on what store you are in some customers can be very aggressive, but that with every retail job. work-life balance can be terrible if you are not in the loop.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity, the job is a workout you get paid for, good health benefits, good people

    Cons

    They seem to make it hard to actually take advantage of the good opportunities if you don't have a bachelor's or prior management experience. How does one get the experience without a chance?

    Pros

    Great company to start at out of college and build a base knowledge with

    Down the road senior leadership will try to pin you into specific roles, with very little time to decide. Not the way you want to be treated over the course of a career.
