Being an Aldi Store Cleaner

Our Store Cleaners are vital to our business. Everything they do contributes to the success of our stores. Because when everything’s clean and in its place, the customer experience and store atmosphere is so much more enjoyable.

By maintaining the cleanliness of all areas of our Stores, our Store Cleaners play such a varied role involving some physical tasks with some bending and lifting included.

Search for a role


Because 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 here.

You don’t need any formal qualifications. It’s more important that you have a friendly personality, a ‘get-on-with-it’ attitude and a passion for putting people first. 

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

We’ll create a training programme that suits you. Experienced colleagues will take you under their wing and help you learn everything from store cleaning to the ins and outs of Health and Safety. And both your Store Manager and Area Manager will be closely involved to make sure you have everything you need. 

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. 

Store Cleaners work between 10 and 30 hours a week. The Store Manager will draw up the rota 4 weeks in advance and your work patterns will reflect the needs of the store. We expect you to be flexible but we also try and accommodate your needs too. 

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

Yes. We’re the only retailer who pays our colleagues for their break time.


If a colleague completed a 6-hour shift with a 20 minute break, they might work from 8am to 12pm, then clock out from 12pm to 12:20pm, then finishing the shift at 2pm.


With other employers, the colleague would get paid 5.67 hours for the 6-hour shift at their hourly rate.  Salary for shift = 5.67 hours at their hourly rate.


At Aldi, the 20-minute break is paid for, so the colleague would still work 8am to 2pm with a 20-minute break at 12pm to 12:20pm but they would receive payment for the full 6 hours at the hourly rate.  Salary for shift = 6 hours at the hourly rate.
