What it means to be an ALDI employee
Being an ALDI employee above all means embracing our shared values: simplicity, responsibility and reliability. That is what we stand for in all we do, wherever we are located. Beyond this, what it means to be an ALDI employee is as individual and diverse as the employees of ALDI North.
Depending on the country, there are up to 50 different job titles. The employees come from 117 nations and range in age from 16 to 66 years old. They all have their own view of ALDI North.
ALDI North is an attractive employer. To us, that means the following: We focus on performance and offer compensation above the payscale agreement. We give all employees the same opportunities. And we are becoming more open – not only in the way we communicate with external stakeholders, but also in the way we deal with one another.
