1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I do the normal daily tasks of a store assistant and some managers task such as waste/date checking and test trolleys. My responsibilities include guaranteeing a safe environment for my staff and the rotation of stock.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have completed my level 2 last year and I am progressing quickly with the level 3. All my key skills have really improved since starting the apprenticeship and my people management and time keeping have improved dramatically
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The team/store I work in are excellent and extremely nice, hard working and supportive and I have created many new friends and have met all my expectations and more.
4. How valued do you feel by Aldi?
I feel valued by Aldi because I am constantly given the opportunity to complete complex important tasks without supervision
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The course is well structured but Aldi is a very busy company and store and sometimes tasks get cancelled or delayed because we're so busy which can seriously delay the training that I receive through itec my training provider
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Itec have been very supportive and extremely helpful and have provided me with everything I need to complete the course to the best of my ability.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
They are very eager to help me train but because the store is so busy some times tasks get delayed or cancelled and rescheduled to a different day. And therefore have delayed work with my training provider. Because Aldi and Itec are very good with overcoming these problems as I always complete the training even if its a couple of weeks late and they allways try and help as much as possible to help me catch up.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Very well but the pay is considerably less between apprentices and store assistants even thou apprentices have more responsibility and task to complete.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
The company do provide benefits through the aldi benefits scheme but don't organise events except for christmas and leaving parties.

Hard work but very nice people to work for and lots of opportunities for advancement.
