Being an Aldi Stock Assistant

It feels brilliant to be part of a business that does things its own way and achieves fantastic results while doing so. That’s how you’ll feel as a Stock Assistant with Aldi.

It’s a really fast paced environment, so there’s certainly no risk of getting bored. And everyone here understands exactly what needs to happen to make their store a success – and gets on with doing it. But the team is fairly small, so if you’re not contributing it will soon show.

Time will fly by as you work hard to keep stock losses to a minimum, help out with inventory counting, check off deliveries and ensure the shelves are fully stocked with attractive, well presented products. And, of course, you’ll provide excellent customer service at all times by attending to customer needs in a prompt and friendly way.

An impressive salary

We’re growing so quickly, we’re always on the lookout for new store colleagues. You can find all the vacancies near you, register your interest and apply further down the page. 

You’ll need to be comfortable with numbers. But other than that, this is about having a friendly personality, a ‘get-on-with-it’ attitude and a passion for the business. 

It can be tough in the store, and lots of different challenges will come your way. We need to know you can handle the Aldi challenge, and that you’re great at dealing with people. After all, you’ll always support the team and put your customers first. So you’ll need to show us that you can be a reliable team member, happy to help out whenever possible. 

You’ll receive a structured training programme that suits you. It normally lasts around 6 weeks and involves all kinds of activities. While learning from experienced colleagues – who will take you under their wing – you’ll also be supported by our ‘CheckPoints’ structured training programme and E-Learning Portal. Both your Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager will be closely involved.  

Where possible, you’ll be trained in your local area. 

You’ll receive constant feedback on your performance throughout your training, from your Store Manager and your Area Manager. But it’s a two-way thing. You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to offer your own thoughts and perspective on your development. 

Not necessarily. However, while your store will be local, travelling by public transport may not always be reliable or convenient. And it’s always a big help if you can provide cover in other local stores. 

It’s simple really. We believe our people are the best in the retail business. Compared with other supermarkets, our teams are smaller and the job involves a much wider range of activities. Our store colleagues work hard, they’re flexible, they use their initiative… at the end of the day, they deserve every penny.

It depends on the store size but you’ll normally work with between 25 and 60 colleagues. 

Stock Assistants work between 10 and 40 hours a week, depending on the type of part-time contract that suits you and the store. But you can work more than that when extra hours are available. The Store Manager will draw up the rota 4 weeks in advance and your work patterns will reflect the needs of the store. While we expect you to be flexible, we also try and accommodate your needs. 

No - Aldi employees are not and have never been classed as self employed.
