4. How well organised/structured is your programme?


My programme is structured well I feel I get given a lot of time to do things and I feel like I learn a lot. I feel it could be done quicker and I could complete all my work in a few months if the work level was more intense

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


The support I get from my employer is good and I feel like I get enough support. My shifts are flexible and there is loads of holiday offered annually which means I can balance work and home life. I feel like the managers are well organised and know what they want from their staff

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


When working towards my qualifications I get given enough support with a lot of education based projects. I also get given good feedback and my results are given back pretty quickly. I am motivated and my college teacher notices this and makes me a priority if I ask for help

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


My qualification is really good for my job role as it shows me how to adapt to certain situations with customers and how to handle difficult situations. I have learnt how to diffuse arguments quickly and hassle free and I have learnt how to be patient with some of the customers

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.)


We do not really have that many extra activities outside of the work place as we all work different patterns and don’t usually have the time to do anything outside of work. I feel like I am tired after long days and I don’t feel like doing much.

9a. Would you recommend Aldi to a friend?


9b. Why?

The managers are really polite and the staff are amazing to work with I feel that we are like a big family and we all get on well. I feel that it is a relaxed place to work without a lot of pressure and most of the customers that come in are friendly

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

Always smile! That is my first tip! The managers look for people who are happy and polite and always there to help a customer and go the extra mile. I would suggest to look at ways online to writing a good cv and include a photo of yourself pinned to the top of your cv looking happy
