  1. "Recession proof"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Store Assistant in Nottingham, England

    I have been working at ALDI full-time

    Pros

    Pays better than a lot of jobs without a degree as long as you get 4 shifts a week on average.

    Cons

    Goodbye to the social life that people who work 9-5 have.

    I have been working at ALDI part-time

    Pros

    Flexible with work hours. Always opportunity for overtime. Good pay, paid from the minute you clock in till the minute you clock out. Paid breaks with the opportunity to have an extra break non paid with notice. Paid premium rate if having to stay at work past 10pm. Great working environment

    Cons

    Long hours Never enough people put in for a shift so having to do a lot of extra work. Sometimes you’ll be sat on the till for 10 hours (minus your 30 min break)

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

    Pros

    The pay is good and you work on a 4 weekly rota so it’s easy to get shifts off you need.

    Cons

    The work is timed including 45min to work pallets and you have to be speedy on the till.

  4. "Good place to work overall but very demanding"

    Pros

    Very clear structure, good pay, good benefits

    Cons

    you are not able to make any contributions around the process or think creatively at all. The business runs on such narrow margins that they push employees past realistic goals and then the burden is adopted by the conscientious employees.
