What it takes to be a Retail Assistant

Do you think our Retail Assistants have an easy job because they sit on the registers? Think again. Our Retail Assistants are the ultimate multi-taskers. Whether they’re racing to fill shelves or scanning through customers, our Retail Assistants can do everything and anything - so a strong work ethic and a positive attitude are an absolute must. We’re looking for self-motivated people with excellent communication skills who thrive in a fast-paced, customer-focused environment.

With no two days the same, you definitely won’t get bored.

The role challenges: 

Physically demanding

Early morning starts
Hard work
Regimented process

As the face of ALDI, our Retail Assistants must remain friendly and polite especially when it’s the end of your shift or really busy. You’ll be on your feet for most of the day, racing from one task to another so it pays not only to be physically fit, but to really love to push yourself.  While you’re working a million miles an hour, cash handling accuracy is a must, therefore a good grasp of basic mathematics is essential. Finally, due to the nature of fluctuating shifts, our Retail Assistants also need to be flexible and available to work any five days out of the week.
