1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
It varies, you may be rotating between working back stock chiller/ambient/bread, deliveries, serving on the tills, or replenishing special buys.

Everyone is friendly, you won't leave work without at least smiling once.
4. How valued do you feel by Aldi?
It is nice when my efforts are recognised as Aldi roles require a lot of responsibility.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
My induction was a week long, as for training it lasted a couple of days but was quite brief, information I did not know I learnt as my apprenticeship went on. Some members of staff and deputy's were helpful, assisting me with any queries or problems I had, I did not really get updates on my progress except for when it concerned my till speed. Task delegation could be poor sometimes I think this was mainly down to a lack of communication, sometimes I would be giving different tasks by different members of staff which would usually cause problems.

I don't feel like i have had the support i needed,

Some staff members organise little outings, I can receive discounts from the company for travel, electronics, gym etc.
