Aldi’s Work Environment

Aldi has over a thousand stores across the eastern half of the United States, providing plenty of varying job opportunities. The work can be physically difficult, lifting heavy objects and sometimes even operating machinery. According to many employee reviews, Aldi lacks in providing proper training for the use of the equipment which results in a large number of workplace injuries, including broken bones and torn muscles. This makes for an unsafe work environment. There seem to be good benefits for long-term employees, though the hours are long and the work is physically exhausting. A weak management system creates poor communication, improper training and less room for advancement. There are limited breaks, and sometimes weeks can go by without a day off. Although shoppers and customers are very happy with Aldi and their products, the employee reviews (mostly part-time employees) are negative and do not reflect Aldi as being a beneficial employment opportunity or career environment.

Job Opportunities at Aldi

There are two sections of work positions at Aldi, under staff and store management. Positions for staff include cashier, stocker, different departments such as produce, meats, canned goods, etc. Store Management jobs more based in customer service, support and store/employee maintenance. Aldi provides great benefits for its employees, such as high wages than most grocery retailers, medical/dental insurance, vacation time, paid holidays and a 401k. There is limited elaboration on further job opportunities through Aldi’s website.

How to Apply for a Job

The only options in applying for Aldi employment are in-store or through their hiring events, which can be found on their website. An application may be printed out online, but can only be brought into the store or when attending a hiring event. Hiring events take place in specific locations and are sometimes limited to the certain position needed, or can offer several different options. The lack of information about HR, application, job description and requirements on Aldi’s website seems to reflect their negative reviews on workplace environment.

    I am a retired Assistant Manager of the Stater Brothers Grocery chain. I am looking for a full-time or part-time position with your company. I have practical, on the job experience in several areas, as an Assistant Manager of the grocery store chain. I would be happy to have the opportunity to chat with one of your representatives about a position in either management, or even in the capacity of a journeyman cashier. I took a withdrawal from the Retail Clerks Union back in 1985, so I am sure I could be re-instated if necessary. Please contact me if you find any interest in talking to me.

    I shop at Aldi’s at the Rosemont Shopping plaza on County Line Rd. near Warrington or PA. I purchase your Christmas Stollen bread annually and would like to buy a dozen or more to give as gifts but I do not know the life of your Stollen. I would hate to have them go stale in a short time and be embarrassed.

    I e-mailed you last week also but never got a reply. Please answer I probably went to the wrong contact in this e-maIL, if, so please forward.
