I have been working at ALDI full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great Pay and Benefits, Nice people to work for. The Store staff are excellent!

Cons

Working Long hours, and demanding at times

Advice to Management

If you are career driven and willing to go the extra mile well this is the career for you. in return you will get paid an excellent salary, company car, an many other benefits. However if you are the... type of person who is not super organised and suffers a bit of stress....stay clear!

I have been working at Tesco full-time for less than a year

Pros

Benefits, work-life balance, range of projects, fast-pace and senior-leadership accessibility. People focused and a growth mindset culture (especially leaders).

Diversity, inconsistent development plans, internal feedback culture, lack of structure in meetings. Feels relatively hierarchical sometimes.

Keep up the great work around listening to colleagues and promoting employee wellbeing.
