1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I have a very important role in Aldi. From day to day I do many different things from replenishing stock to working the tills. Also as an apprentice I have the responsibilities to do till checks on other colleagues and upload the information onto the software on the computer.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I've learnt many things including Health and Safety, the use of tills, the correct way to use a pump truck and move roll cages, how to use/empty the bailing machine, using software such as Excell passing all the Aldi training progame, correct way to display magazines to the right standard of external businesses, and my communication and numeracy skills have improved.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
Aldi is a great working environment, its got the drive that makes you want to work, but you've gotta work hard there's always something to do and you haven't got time to slow down which is great motivation if you aren't having an off day, the majority of the Aldi team are amazing and are always there if you need any help or advice and not just in the work place, they're more like a family than colleagues, I believe it is a good place to work and it'll be even better if I get into year two because you get to do so much more of the management role. Overall I've enjoyed my time at Aldi there have been some times when I haven't felt as enthusiastic about and appreciated but when I mentioned how I felt they was quick to respond and help resolve the problem and explain how they didn't realise and if I ever have a problem again to just talk to them and they will help.
