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

    Pros

    It's a 48 hour working week, but with the shift times you get so much out of your free time. It's the best work-life balance I've had in 8 years of retail. Looking at salaries of similar jobs, and even those elsewhere with more responsibility, nowhere compares to Aldi in terms of logistics pay.

    Cons

    A lot of people are comfortable in their roles, and are happy to stay there until retirement. As such, positions can stay occupied for a long time which can limit progression opportunities.
