    I have been working at ALDI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Industry-leading pay package.
    5 weeks holiday a year.
     Flexibility for time off and holidays.
    48 hour week contract with excess hours paid in time in lieu. (Days off)

    Cons

    There are no coins to any post in Aldi. It is hard work and we do expect commitment, flexibility, professionalism and even under immense pressure great customer service at all times.

    Advice to Management

    As a store manager of long-standing-managing a team that has grown from very small to very large in one of the busiest stores in our region, I find myself still extremely proud to be a store manager for Aldi. My advice to anyone approaching Aldi for a part-time or full-time position, be realistic in your expectations, but rest assured this will be the best job opportunity you will ever be exposed to.
