4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

10/10

At first I struggled with my programme but as soon as I had a meeting with my tutor and they explained everything to me and the process of the course then I soon started to see that my programme is organised and structured. Everything is together so its easier to log on and get some work done when I have a free moment at work.

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?

10/10

I think I receive a lot of support from my employer. I have been given time to do my course at work and my manager and team help me with feed back when I feel I need it. I have been allowed hours to learn different management roles to help me with this course.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?

10/10

I feel that my training provider is there for me when I feel like I need support. there are a few points on this course when I have not understood something and I have sent my trainer an email or spoke to them on the phone to ask for guidance.

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

10/10

I feel that my qualification is helping me a lot to preform better in my job role daily as I am learning new styles of managing people and understanding people and this is great knowledge for every day use. I am enjoying the articles and videos that are very educating.

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

10/10

At my work there is not any extra curricular activities to get involved in. Although me and my other 5 deputies do arrange meals for ourselves every couple of months as we are too busy sometimes at work to have a personal chat and see how each others home life's are.

9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

I have been here 11 years now and I have made a lot of very good friends over the years from working here. I have been allowed to change my rota over the years to suit me and the hours and pay are very good. There is always overtime too.

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

The hours and pay at Aldi are very nice and there is always overtime for everyone. There are a good bunch of people working here ao no one ever feels left out. You can apply to swap your shift if you need to suit home needs but It is a very physical job though so you do have to work hard.
