1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
MY day to day role as a level 3 management apprentice varies on what department im based in, currently based with the tca i complete daily slot, pallet and picker checks which may include counting quantities of stock, checking stock is in the correct slot of racking etc. My daily interactions would be with deputy managers and my section leader. I have a responsibility to make sure all repacks are dealt with correctly and are sent to the store with the memo attached.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have a level 2 qualification in warehousing and logistics, i am now progressing towards achieving my level 3. I have completed bulk mover training internally. I believe my apprenticeship has helped me communicate and work as a team much better.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy my work role, i find that i can work well with any team Im placed with. Aldi as a company really support me and help me to achieve my goals.
4. How valued do you feel by Aldi?
I feel very valued, my manager will always give appreciation and tell me when ive done something well, he will also be constructive when i could improve something, i am involved partially in many projects, i would like to become more involved in the future however.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
my programmes structure has be affected badly by a change in organisations, we changed the learning provider after we felt the training to be insufficient. I now feel the new learning provider to be well organised and very efficient. I feel aldi give me support with my learning and will give me any time i need to learn. I do not have meetings as such, however i have sat in on a few section manager update meetings.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
my tutor see's all 10 apprentices once a month, i feel that this is not enough and i would like to see her more often however i understand that she manages alot of people and can only make time for one visit a month. I feel support is well accessible.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
My employer will support me if i ever need it, my manager is always showing me new things and assuring me i can always ask him for help, my mentor who i see once a month is also always available should i need her.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
my salary will leave me with 200 pounds per week after all my costs. i find this to be very good as it helps me save for my future and see my friends. the location of the site i work at is only 8 miles from my house so i do not use much petrol getting to work
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I have not been involved of any opportunities outside work, however i would like to become involved if any should arise, when i wasnt working i played rugby and went to the cadets.
9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Because aldi has helped me progress in both management skills and people skills, the company has really helped me come out of my shell and speak up more, i have developed team work skills while being here and also met a lot of friends, the pay is good and the qualification has potential to get me a really good career once i have achieved it.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aldi? *
be yourself, your application should be you on a page, this will ensure that what aldi read is what they get, your interview will be nerve wracking but keep your head on straight and talk about what your most interested in, answer any questions fully and really show that you are passionate about the logistics and distribution element of aldi, for experience aside from work experience i cannot say, i was told everything i wanted to know as i asked many questions
