The manager of the Aldi in Ashland told me a few weeks ago as far as they knew there were no plans to put one in Grayson. I love going there for fresh fruit and veg that are on sale.

They don't pay great; I work there and we're at $12.65/hr. You might think that's good money for one job, but actually we're doing more then just one job. We're cashiers, customer service reps, stockers, and cleaners. The whole store is ran by 2 people on a shift: Manager and cashier; that's it. The trucks come in and unload the pallets, cashier and manager check off the items and stock the whole store. After that cashier becomes a cashier and if there are no customers in line to help you're fixing any project that is going on. End of the day you're trying to clean the whole store and check people out at the same time. There is NO downtime except your break. 4-5hrs = 15mins, 6hrs = 20mins, 7+hrs = 30mins; you're usually sch for 9-10hrs. For the amount of work and hustle that we do does not equate to fair wages. Not to mention all the brilliant ideas that management comes up w/... or all the annoying ass customers; the elderly w/ exact change, the people who try to trick-or-treat for their groceries cause they didn't get a cart, the ones that steal your cart cause they didn't bring one... the list goes on and on. Also as a cashier you're timed on ring speed; 48 items per min is the minimum. Do you know how fast that is? If you ring at 36 people think that's too fast and complain about how you handle their groceries or the ones that complain about the line. JESUS, the prices are cheap for a reason if you don't want to wait you can pay for that convenience at another store by paying more per item. Also, you customers are so negligent towards the groceries; you leave fresh meat or milk out to spoil, put fresh vegetables in the freezer, eat items while shopping and never pay for it, discard anything you don't want anymore where ever you are standing... the list goes on and on. That does not help us keep our prices low cause I'm busy catering to your carelessness instead of doing my job and getting us out earlier so the company doesn't have to spend as much and help us from inflating our prices. The company sucks to work for and you as the customers are driving up the prices.

As for the benefits.. we they cut them. You now get an allowance for the year. Vacation time is not one week, it's 5 days and that's not 5 days = 40 hrs; no it's 5 days averaged at how many hours you usually work a week over the last 6 weeks. So if you get 30 hrs a week; you're getting 30 hrs of pay. And you can't save up vacation and take 10 days the next year; it's use or lose.

@Matt.
Wow. I facepalmed so hard I almost put my self into a coma.
So many things you shouldn't complain about.

$12.65 hr. Not bad. Especially when I see ads in the paper for example looking for welders at 9.00hr. How is that fair for the amount of work they do over you?

No downtime except your break? You are there to work. The times you listed seem reasonable for the amount of hours worked.

The vacation thing makes sense to. If you average 30hrs why should they pay you 40? Tons of jobs have the use or lose stipulation. Mine does. You need to take in account your not working for some Fortune 500 company.

Customers are the only thing I can see rantng over as the general public just sucks.

I wish Aldi would come to Grayson, but the new store is an IGA. I do 90% of my shopping at Aldi. The prices are so low and the food is so fresh that it pays for me to drive all the way to Ashland to shop.

Suck it up. You could go to work for minimum wage. A lot of us do "more than one job". Are you even serious?

Well, I have to say I agree with everything Matt said. When people hear what employees at Aldi have to say they think that we're just complaining, we're lazy, or we just don't want to have to work hard. Quite frankly, that's FAR from the case. Thereís hard work and then thereís slavery. Aldi is slavery. I understand that most jobs now a days don't compensate people for the work they do but Aldi is on an entirely different level. It's not just about having to do more than one job. Every job has that. It's about the fact that you're literally doing the work of 6 people. You do EVERY SINGLE THING that needs to be done in the store...
-You work the jack and stock the shelves. ONE person does this while the manager does the produce.(Several employees are now out from work because they've thrown out their back or had some other type of injury. I've injured my shoulder). It is some serious manual labor.

-You ring customers but that in itself is still hard because you need to ring them at the speed of light or else you'll hear it from your manager. My speed right now is a 32 and customers already complain about it, yet the store goal is 48.

-You straighten up the entire store (which is a lot). Mind you, ONE person does this, while the other is ringing customers. If the cashierís line starts getting long, you have to stop what youíre doing to go ring customers, then come back to straightening up the store.

-You assist customers in between all of this.

-When working the evening/closing shift you have to start cleaning the store in between customers. If you wait until closing (9pm) you wonít leave before 1 am. Youíre CONSTANTLY running from cash register to broom, to cash register, to mop, to cash register, to windexÖ trying to juggle all that you have to do. Cleaning is- wiping down the register belts, cleaning the bathrooms, cleaning the breakroom, emptying the trash from all the rooms in the store (10 trash bags total), sweeping the store, sweeping the area under each register, mopping the store, using the floor scrubber and emptying it, sweeping the produce area again, and wiping down the freezer area. You must do all of this within a certain amount of time.

-And letís not start with the unfriendly managers and staff at my store who hate their jobs as well.

So I donít wanna hear it from anyone who says,ďItís $12/hr (well actually $10/hr in my state) what are you complaining about?Ē Thatís what I thought until I started working at Aldi. Everywhere else pays $7-$8/hr, and Aldi just increased the salary by 50 cents. BUT, for the work weíre doing itís not worth the $10.50 or even $11. It should be like $15-$17 at least. I donít mind working hard. I just donít like being overworked. Iím leaving in a few weeks and so are the other 2 girls I trained with. Weíd rather work somewhere else for less pay than have to deal with overbearing work at Aldi for a little better pay. That says a lot. This job is overall not good for my health (mentally or physically), thus not worth the extra $2/hr.

Over Charging

Whitney, TX

#15 Dec 19, 2012
Over half the time that I shop at Aldi's I get over charged for items. The last time I was in there they over charged me by $4.73, and they moaned and groaned because they had to give a refund. there is no way to see the price when the item is being scanned, you have to wait and look at the receipt. Any one else have the same problem?

I have to say, I do all of that at my job....all of it....open to close....for 8/hr....I'm trying to get a job at Aldis. Cause it will be worth it. There is such a thing as having an Aldis attitude and I don't think a lot of people have it. It takes the right kind of person to be able to do all of that and not complain. I've been doing it for a lot less. I think Aldis sounds like heaven lol.
