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


My qualifications aren’t really needed with my job role if i am honest I feel like I could do this job without having specific qualifications however they do help me when dealing with difficult customers that can have a bit of an attitude. I know how to talk properly to people

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.)


As the shift patterns always vary and everyone works by starting and finishing and different times and working or different days it is difficult to plan social events although I am in the process of organising a 5 a side team which I would find a good hobby and a laugh

9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend?


9b. Why?

Outstanding company to work for with greats rates of pay right from the get go. The managers are good and the job is fairly easy. I understand everything and I like having a easy life from stock checking. To dealing with customers and keeping the shop safe for everybody who comes in

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

I would give a good bit of advise of always being friendly and sensible. It’s important to smile when you come into your interview as this is the first impression you are giving people. My cv was well written and I was friendly and outgoing in my interview and the company liked this
