"Stressful, Dangerous, Dirty, Rodent Infested Warehouse. LONG-TERM, UNETHICAL LEADERSHIP that gets worse & cares less and less every year. When I began working here, I liked the job. It is hard work, lost weight, made friends, made good money. Over time I discovered that management is morally corrupt & plays favorites, allowing them to get away with harassment & safety violations. If you complain you get fired. The code of conduct is an imaginary code that just serves as a legal wink-wink, look the other way. It is never enforced. Only people who cover up misconduct are promoted beyond team leads. Certain people are protected by management and can do all sorts of wrongdoing & not get fired. Recently Aldi is making an attempt to improve the image they have of being tolerant of all races, but it has been forced because they have been called out on it & racism is still rampant here as well as other forms of discrimination, especially age. Rodent & roach sightings are ignored & produce is often dropped on the floor & then scooped back up & delivered to stores. Make sure you wash produce thoroughly if you shop there. Equipment is scarce and often damaged & it's a long wait to get new resources because it has to come from Germany. This company is huge & makes so much money, they don't need to care about their employees. And they do virtually nothing for the communities that they service. Anytime you see Aldi do a good deed, it's because the employees arranged it. Upper Management is not seen very often, unless it is to report a new covid positive employee. Training for new hires consists of 1 or 2 days with a trainer who has less than a few weeks of experience, because the turnover rate is very high. This is not a long term job for anyone other than upper management. They have life long job security, but they don't believe that hard working employees that do physical work have the same rights."
"Great company. Great co-workers. I love the environment"
"ALDI was the first option that came up when I moved out here to Illinois. Working here and going to school was tough but overall was a great experience."
"Fantastic place to work. Great atmosphere and work-life balance. They really care about your progress and future and a person and employee. Benefits and time off are exceptional as well."
"I've worked at this privately owned company for 2 years. I've been told that hard work and high performance is rewarded but it's not. Rather, the district manager will tell you what you want to hear, which I believe is because they don't want to lose good workers. The work is hard but it's easy if you're in shape. Think of the work like it's a free gym membership. If you're not in shape, you will become in shape. The hard part of the job is not having a social/work life balance. Mandatory overtime or picking up shifts that others have failed to show up or are sick. As a manager, calling in sick is not an option and eventually pollutes the entire staff. Your reward for not calling in sick is a monetary check (at the end of the year) of unused sick days. Don't be fooled when the district manager brags about all of the Holidays and paid time off. Again, you won't get those days off but instead your reward will be extra money. What do you value more, money or family, or do you want a fair mix of the two? Aldi does a great job of appealing to the public regarding saving the customer money and providing a good product for 50% of the average cost, but Aldi does a horrible job of treating its employees as a human being. If it weren't for the slaves of Aldi, there wouldn't be savings passed down to its customers. The health benefits are good but again if you can't use them, then what's the point of having health benefits. The health benefits provide a decent amount of good coverage for medication but the cost of the medication is not reimbursable. The 401k is matched up to 5% but you aren't fully vested until 7 years. A majority of your co-workers will develop a mutual respect and a place to vent. $12/hr is average based on requirement to do double the work. Only use Aldi to fast track your career in retail. Aldi does not care about anything but their own pocketbook."
"Don't be fooled. Only work here if you care about money and nothing else. This company does not care about its people. You are nothing to them - they do not care if you are there or not. They can always throw money at someone else and burn them out after a few years as well. They don't care about work/life balance. Your family does not matter to leadership. Your loyalty means nothing."
"There should be an award for a worst employer and Aldi Stores should win. Nasty managers, work like a slave. Do whatever they want without questioning them. No human sorceress department, no rights as an employee, disgusting place to work. Would not recommend even to my worst enemy to work at Aldi Tottenham. The government should get involved and stop the slavery that goes on in Aldi uk. I currently looking for new employment."
"They expect a lot of work from you and don't give you a lot of freedom to run your store. They hire 23 year old to be your boss and mold them into controlling freaks."
What do you like about working at Aldi?
"Fast paced and great benefits."
What don't you like about working at Aldi?
"Not enough time to get to know customers and offer great customer service, I feel rushed a lot of times, I'm also very limited on what I can do within my store."
