    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ALDI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are hard working you will be rewarded for it. The training you recieve is great. you gain a lot of great experience and support from your store manager, even more so if you are hard working and organised.

    Cons

    People get moved a lot since ALDI is constantly growing, very rapidly. So you have to get used to change very quickly.

    Pros

    Fast training, lots of responsibility from the start

    Try to actually build relationships with trainees instead of isolating them
