We’re bursting with pride here at Aldi. We’re one of the UK’s fastest-growing supermarket chains and we’ve just opened the doors to our 870th store with plans to have 1,200 stores by 2025. You’ll also find thousands of Aldi stores across the world from Germany and Hungary, to Switzerland and Slovenia.
We’re wonderfully different at Aldi. We do things our way. You won’t find our stores full of Assistants waiting to be told what to do. Managers aren’t hiding away in the back office. And our Caretakers take real care over their work. It can be tough, but we support each other. And we always make sure that the customer leaves smiling. It’s why we’re one of the world’s fastest-growing retailers. And why we’ve won so many awards for being such a great place to work, including ‘Employer of the Year’ at The Grocer Gold Awards 2017.
What makes a great Store Assistant? Well, it’s the little things really. A queue of customers at the till? You’ll jump on a different till and halve their waiting time. A pallet of bananas in the warehouse? You’ll put them out in the store, rather than wait for someone else to do it. Ultimately, it’s all about being a naturally friendly, respectful and thoughtful colleague who’s a bundle of enthusiasm and positivity. It’s this positive attitude that helps to make Aldi wonderfully different, not to mention successful.
