Working at ALDI is a bit like an equation – you put in and we give back.
There's no sense of entitlement, it's earned and rewarded.

ALDI's values are those of simplicity, a focus on quality and fairness. We acknowledge enterprise, stamina and hard work and in return we offer fantastic financial incentives and the opportunity to progress and grow in one of Australia's leading retail operations.


Here's some of the key benefits of working at ALDI.

Market leading remuneration

The pay's really good, but you definitely work for it.

Comprehensive training

It's a different work environment to anywhere else I've been, but you get an enormous amount of support and training to help get you up to speed. You just have to be willing to learn and work hard.

Being part of a growing organisation

The business grows so quickly, meaning everything is very dynamic and no day is the same. This is one of the biggest challenges but also one of the things that makes my job so rewarding.

Working at ALDI isn't for everyone.

Here's what our employees identify as the challenges across the board.

Hard work

Being part of a small team means there's no slacking off. Long days aren't uncommon, so you need to be prepared for it.

High degree of responsibility

It's definitely not for everyone. You don't just specialise in one thing; sometimes you have to tackle something that isn't in your job description, which you haven't done before. Basically you're here to do what needs to be done.

Hands-on nature of work

Just because you're an Area Manager, doesn't mean you have a team to delegate the admin jobs to. You'll need to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty, it's all part of your role.

No day is the same

Variety – day in, day out. Some people like that no two days are similar; others need to know what their daily routine will be like. There's nothing wrong with that but it's definitely not ALDI.

Some see the added responsibility as a burden; others view it as empowerment. There are those who feel that the long days take a toll, whilst others gain satisfaction from staying back until their tasks are completed. Some find they are too exposed in the smaller teams, and others love the ability to make an impact. If you see things more like the latter, you probably have the ALDI in you.
