Fast paced heavy lifting

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Aldi are very flexible with shifts, I do 3 on 4 off on the days of my choosing. Fast paced work with heavy lifting. Pays good. Been there 3 weeks so far no problems.

Awful place to work

Poor management Coordination, law pay, early shifts starts 4 00 am , lots of pressure, no understanding and support from Management team.A bad place to work.

Terrible management

The pay is great but the things you have to deal with aren’t worth it. Management truly doesn’t appreciate its good employees and take advantage of them while the lazy ones slide by. They just want to see the work getting done and are blind to everything else that goes on around them.

Fast pace

Great pay, fast work environment, and flexible with scheduling if part time. Your work day is done once all orders for the day have been picked up and nothing else is available. You may have choice to stay over and help others. Hours vary from 5-7 hours

Productive workplace

Aldi is a good place for those who want to go up the ladder and find new opportunities, it is hard graft and sometimes long hours but the pay is very good and will always be going up due to other competitors

Good work flexible

When I would go in we would always start with a stretch to warm us up then we were straight to work. The work is fast paced by anyone is always willing to help if you get backed up.

Horrible management

Most managers try to be nice or seem to try and fit the par but overall to them you are just a number nothing more nothing less they don’t care about your overall health just that they want to be number 1 store to get there bonus as management

Basically get paid to work out

Fast paced and physically demanding as an order selector helped keep me physically fit. No real complaints except the occasional long shifts but that wasn’t the worst. Break room always had food and drinks. Was paid well, good place to work while establishing my career separate from this industry


Good pay


Long shifts occasionally

Not worth it

Too low of pay for a backbreaking job. Working in the freezer you’ll be squatting picking up 30-80lbs boxes of produce (Frozen meats, crates of apples) all day and on top of it they force overtime upon you from the slack of others.

Too many employees and nothing is fair

Favoritism is all that matters and my favorite part of the job was the physical exercise you could obtain from it I lost over 100 pounds thanks to the miles and miles I would walk

Physically demanding but decent pay and benefits

A very physical demanding job but the pay and benefits help balance it out. The one thing I didn’t like it they are constantly on you about your rate. It didn’t matter how great of an employee you were, how safe and nice stacked pallets you had, if you stop to help with spills, if you rudely cut others off to make rate,. The only thing they see is what you are picking per hour and it better be the average or they write you up.

Training is a joke

It's very fast pace makes the hours fly by but when u really don't know the operation yet it's very challenging. They say if u just ask anybody around. I learned I was a burden on most I asked. Heaven for bid u make a mistake (well he thought I did) cuz he was a complete jerk and the the following night sat in another isle watching me as I struggled to stake an order it took me and hour and half so. When it was break everyone went not me because I wasn't done with the order I had to wait.


Always busy


Training was long enough.for all u got to remember

good pay but no set hours.

Pay is good if you can get the hours. Shifts can be anything between 4 and 10 hours and you don't know until you get there. Friendly place to work and progression opportunities.

Not fun. Can be boring at times. A lot of manual labor.

Typical day at work is go to work wit safety shoes and clothes, punch in , grab tugger, grab your equipment for headset if you are a selector. Go to meeting and listen. Then you work after you have an order. Hardest part of the job is breaking your body down to hit rate by constantly lifting boxes. Usually pick up 400+ boxes a day. Most enjoyable part is finishing the job and going home. Management could be better. So managers are cool and some are terrible. Also it is disorganized at times.


Schedule is great. Two weeks wit two days off and then one week wit 3 days off. The process repeats.


Breaks are not realistic

Imagine going to the gym lifting weights for 7-10 hours straight with a 20 min break and having to hit a pick rate or 250 cases a hour none stop. They have you working like robots even hitting 245 a hour ‘isn’t good enough’ the deputy’s speak to you very badly a lot of the time and make you feel worthless. You try your hardest and ‘it’s not good enough’ highly would NOT recommend working here, the staff turn over is huge because they can’t keep people.




Long hours. Short breaks.

Mid warehouse job

Could’ve been betterFavoritism occurs hereHours are unpredictable and takes a while to get weekends offThe pay is decent compared to other warehouses

Good if you like the basics at the bottom.

Pay is great but the hours dramatically fluctuate. Moving up takes years due to seniority. Either that or you have a college background. You cap out after 4 years and are supposed to receive a bonus after that. I don't know a single person who has received that bonus.


Nice people, lenient, good benefits


4 hour days, little room to advance, constant changes

Worst place I’ve ever worked

They pay is GREAT but morale doesn’t exist in Aldi. They play favorites like your in high school. They reward the people who don’t care about the job (always calling out, always late, in the bathroom and break room throughout the shift) and give the people who work hard a hard time. Oh and feelings aren’t allowed or you will be considered insubordinate and “playing the victim “. The job itself is fun & challenging but bad leadership makes it absolutely miserable.

No work life balance

Heavy job but it depends on the the department, nights are more physically demanding with them 18-20kg cases. Pay is okay tho but long hours. For a short term I'd okay.

Fast paced, nice management

management is very nice and wants you to succeed, fast paced work environment so its a great work out. not guaranteed 40 hrs a week unless you come in on your days off to get those extra hours.
