Obviously not a complaint. Ive been with aldi for 4years im a shift manager.
Ive seen numerous complaints here about "1 worker" or no credit cards or buying your own bags. Heres the deal with aldi. Their is never only 1 worker. There may be 1 person with 1 lane open.
Our rules are, when a 4th person enters the line, that cashier is supposed to open the other register. If they arent doing this, tell them and they will open another lane! Alot of people dont open another lane if they have a line with small orders. You save money by bagging your own things, company isnt paying for a bagger.
You DONT have to buy our bags either! Bring your own, find boxes in the store, people use laundry baskets!! Yes your debit card (pin number!!!) may charge a few cents to use but credit cards take a percentage out of companys so if we took credit out prices will RAISE. And aldi doesnt charge to use debit, YOUR BANK does it.
Just like anywhere, people can be rude or have a bad day, you can always say something to the store manager about this. Our numbers are not listed anywhere so you cannot call to complain. Also, we ring items up quickly because we are timed on this and many things. Also on timers for seconds in between customers.
We are payed almost 3times higher than min wage because we are productive and 1 of us actually equals almost 3 people. Ways to help us, take all your items out of bags or boxes and have money ready and swipe your debit and enter pin after we ring first item. And please keep your hands out of the carts!! We are fast and could smash your hands, and take kids out of carts, we cannot be quick if we are placing items are kids.
And if we pull up a spare cart to put your items in, dont stand in line to get your things, step away and return cart when your done and we can keep our line moving. Anybody can be a ***, aldi kroger walmart, ask for the store manager or shift manger, if they are jerks than ask what the store number is ( not phone number its a 2digit) and you can get online and look up that store and complain. District managers will always contact you. And ps!!!
When you turn in an application and ask to speak with a manager, your wasting your time and ours.
Managers do not hire!! Only the dm (district manager) can hire.
