ALDI
Deputy Store Manager was asked...29 September 2015

The interview was conducted by an area manager who clearly did not have any life experiences. Straight out of uni and trained the Aldi way.The job I applied for was in one location and I got offered an "Aldi experience" day at another location a couple of weeks later, again at 10.30 pm by email . I was to start at seven am in the morning for two hours,and also have the opportunity to try on a uniform.I was also informed at the interview, that I would be required to start work at eleven pm and finish at six am for four days a week, and a couple of days off and then start at six am.This was basically a glorified shelf stacker in charge of a team of two. Hardly managerial and low pay for such unsociable hours at £9.15 an hour.

I was asked how many jobs I had applied for, I said a couple as I wasn't desperate. I was also asked if I thought about driving ,which I did not think was necessary as I would be working locally. I emailed Aldi and withdrew my application. I'm not a glorified stock room assistant for any company. I thought this was a real opportunity to develop a career in retail management.Not a chance I'm afraid.Very ambiguous and totally miss-leading potential new staff. Less

If the delivery is mixed pallets ask the driver to keep the load on the trailer for 30-40 mins. Get a team of store colleague 2-4 and dep managers to work the back stock in the warehouse to create space then unload the delivery just remember to let the depot know of the delay to driver. Less
