    I have been working at ALDI full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is good for the job (but you really earn it!) opportunity to rise higher if you have the right outlook

    Cons

    I've been working at Aldi for 5 months now and it's the worst, most soul destroying job I've ever had. Firstly, you are expected to work like a slave for ten hours straight with just one 30min break. The company handbook states you will get more but if you ask for more or if you are even caught having a 5minute breather you get a verbal kick up the backside.

    Secondly, the hours are ridiculous. There is no structure to the rotas, with many of them not even going up until Saturday or Sunday. I've also never left on time...you HAVE to stay after hours until the place is to the managers satisfaction and you aren't allowed to leave. Ten hour shifts more like 11 hour shifts.

    Thirdly...the health and safety is slacking. You have to sign a training book when you first start to say you've been trained in health and safety. This is as far as it goes. I told my manager I can't lift produce (you are expected to lift crates of watermelons from great heights) because I don't have the physical strength and I was told to do as I was told or else...leading to a painfull shoulder injury which has been affecting my work for over 6 weeks.

    The till/safe system is dated and confusing. You could take your till in to be counted at the end of your shift and be £30 down because 'the safe moved' somehow. This can lead to you getting in serious trouble for something you haven't done

    Lastly, the general attitude of most staff is appalling, although this is obviously based on my experiences in this one store. Out of the 6 deputy managers, 2 are hard working and fair. The rest won't pick up anything heavier than a phone or a clipboard and the one assistant manager verbally abuses and bullies staff on a day to day basis. The staff aren't much better. For example, it was my second week at aldi and I arrived at 7am to start my shift and I was working a delivery on my own - something I hadn't been trained to do or even shown. I was obviously a bit slower than the other experienced staff and because of that other store assistant were vile to be and talked down to me. It's a soul destroying place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realise that the work people do in store is incredibly hard and they deserve more respect and BREAKS. Also give store assistants the opportunity to work their way up to area managers etc over the years instead of hiring 21year olds who have no idea how to speak to people. Start visiting stores without warning to see what it's REALLY like.
