    I have been working at Aldo part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    50% Discount on all items.

    Cons

    Minimum Wage, on your feet all day. Long hours, short breaks (30 mins even when working 10+ hours, sometimes asked to to skip breaks during promotional periods) No respect, shouted at, manager made other employees cry on occasion. You had to wear ALDO shoes (and they had to be 'in season' meaning shoes that were currently sold at the store) but we had to pay for these out of our own money, for a minimum wage job this is not acceptable.
