1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
As a second/third year apprentice my job role is carrying on from my first year as an apprentice with additional responsibilities such as date checking, holding the keys for the safe, and responding to cashier bells for assistance.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I've learnt a lot more knowledge about the running of the company and it's procedures, including the many job roles of a deputy manager. I feel my confidence has improved exponentially since I started my apprenticeship, as well as my communication skills and critical thinking.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy being delegated more responsibility and given new tasks.
4. How valued do you feel by Aldi?
The apprenticeship has taught me a lot about retail and I feel like a member of the team with my fellow colleagues in the store that I am based in.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme involved is a monthly visit from an outside party who monitor my progress and set new tasks for my working programme so I am continually learning more and more about management within retail.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
My support provider is very helpful and he is always ready to provide assistance when needed.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Members of management encourage my development in store to progress to the next level in retail, so I'm continually learning new skills take with me into the workplace.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Of course I do not speak for all apprentices but personally my package meet's my own living costs suitably, also I understand that the money deducted goes into my training within my apprenticeship.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Apart from occasional visits to the Head Office branch in Swindon that have ranged from introduction to Head Office, the warehouse, and First Aid, there aren't any opportunities that I myself have been involved in, although if they were made more available to me I may be interested, otherwise no.
9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
It's a continually growing company with new stores all around the country, a lot of opportunity for those seeking employment.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aldi? *
If you're not willing to work over and above, you will not get on well in the company.
