    I have been working at ALDI part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good wages compared to other retailers.
    The store is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
    People I work with are nice, excluding managers.

    Cons

    As a Store Assistant, formerly a Stock Assistant, I can honestly say from my experience from these two positions that working for this company is the worst I have ever been treated in my life. I am expected to lift heavy objects from great heights, above my head height, and if I complain, I'm looked down on or guilt tripped with the "this is a team and we all have to pull our weight" speech, despite it being against health and safety regulations. My sleeping pattern has completely messed up with the 6AM starts one day and not starting until 2PM the next and working on until 3AM the next morning. The management tend to look down on people who are new starts or younger employees such as myself, especially if you're in some form of education as they seem to think that I must think I'm better than them for studying at college and only working part-time. I have been made to stay on past my finishing time almost every shift that I'm on without being asked, and if I ask to leave most times they point-blank refuse to let me go "until all of the jobs are done" and I'm not being paid for it. So this means I have no social life whatsoever and finding time to study has become increasingly difficult as I am tired all the time from work. I'm usually asked to pick up the slack for other people that haven't finished their tasks, and managers seem to have no qualms about patronizing and bullying you into it when you try and object. Despite complaining to my Store Manager about how I'm treated, nothing is being done about this. As someone who suffers from Anxiety Disorder, this has wreaked havoc on my mental well-being, and I'm currently applying for a new job after working for the company for almost 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store managers/assistant store managers stop asking staff to do difficult jobs in impossible amounts of time. Comply with health and safety by making sure pallets are safe to work before telling staff to work them, don't ask the person that's under 5'2'' to work the 8ft high bread order.
    Area managers start taking an interest in what is going on around the store rather than just the store productivity. Ask employees what they think, you might actually hear a few good ideas that may help the company improve in the future and improve staff morale. All too often the area manager comes in to speak with the store manager for whatever reason and doesn't seem to care about the other employees. It makes us feel like we don't matter and that what we have to say doesn't matter.
