1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I have done various roles from picking to cheacking to processing damaged specials. Most of these tasks have been briefly talked about but a sufficient level of training was not given especially in regards picking.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


The skills that I have learned are how to stack pallets and how drive low level warehouse equipment

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I am constantly brought down in my mood when I watch how over worked and under appreciated the selectors are.

4. How valued do you feel by Aldi?


I feel like the last thought on any of the senior managers minds unless I do wrong. Currently I have been working at aldi for 2 years and the section manager incharge of the apprenticeship has said very little to me other than brief greatings when passing by and the odd meeting when he will give the odd good word about progression.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


We have recently taken on a new company to handle the apprenticeship assessing and they are top class 10 out of 10. Unfortunately I still cant rate this high due to the constant let downs I have experienced in regards to cancellations and break down in communication on the companys side

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


Only one thing to say and that much as I could ever need.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


The support is there but takes to long to resive this support.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


Its a good wage for an apprenticeship but you know you do more than enough extra work for it.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


The company does not have Christmas partys because of the 24hour warehouse environment. The only thing that has come up is an open day to show off our new warehouse

9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend? *


9b. Why? *

If you want to sell your soul and your morals you can make allot of money and progress fast.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aldi? *

If your passionate about people and helping them stay away this job has trapped people with there high wages but does not give the prase people rightly deserve.
