1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am a logistics apprentice within an aldi warehouse, on a day to day basis I go through a routine of shadowing deputies doing admin work, performing accuracy checks on stock coming into the warehouse as well as actually booking in the stock
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learn a variety of new skills such as how to create high quality multi functional spread sheets, the correct way to handle heavy boxes as well as developing existing skills, for example my communication with other staff members and I have grown a lot as an individual in terms of confidence
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the programme as I am spending every day with a great group of people in the office and on the pick, everyone is friendly and easy to talk to so there is always a good atmosphere. it has exceeded my expectations that I had for working life and Aldi in general.
4. How valued do you feel by Aldi?
currently I feel as though I am very valued by the people I work closely with day to day as they trust me with important jobs and allow me to develop skills and work in my NVQ
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
the programme is extremely well structured now, we have a training schedule for how long we will be spending within each department and what we should be doing there. However before there was little structure and previous apprentices were left to their own devices
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive support from my training provider when I request it, If I am stuck she helps me to the best she can and is always available for me to contact her.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
my employer is also supportive, if I am struggling with a section of my NVQ all I have to do is asked an I will either be told what I need to know or send to the right person to find out.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
my wage covers all my expenses with a little left over for me, however I do feel as though sometimes apprentices are used as a means of cheap work.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
outside of work I have a large selection of sports and leisure activities such as boxing, football, gym, swimming ect, however there are limited places for work experience or other part time jobs
9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
it is a greast place to work, you learn a lot, you develop yourself as a person and as an employee. The money is very good, the hours are also preferable as everyday ends by around 2pm at the latest(day shifts).
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aldi? *
be honest, be prepared for hard work and early starts. the days will fly by if you are willing to switch on and learn each and every day otherwise you will struggle to make it through the course.
