AlDI

There’s no store, or opportunity, quite like ALDI.

At ALDI, we’re proud to be one of the fastest growing retailers in the country. It shows us that giving our customers great value and quality products while giving our people great support is working. That’s why we invest as much in your development as we do in developing our company. After all, if we hire, cultivate and promote strong leadership, our company will be an even stronger industry leader.

From support and benefits, to camaraderie and opportunities, every day, you’ll understand what we mean when we say “Welcome to More.”

You’ll also see for yourself how our Overarching Strategy drives our decisions and fuels our success.

Our Overarching Strategy

When you join ALDI, you’ll see our Overarching Strategy come to life in everything we do as a company. We provide our customers with a focused range of high-quality products at the best price. Our highly efficient operation enables us to achieve cost leadership in our markets and to optimize profit. This, in turn, provides us with a strong financial base, allowing us to grow the business and offer an excellent employee working environment and competitive remuneration. Our business approach is focused on the long term and is based on our three core values: consistency, simplicity and responsibility.

To sum it up, our Overarching Strategy drives ALDI.

ALDI in Action

No one knows what it’s like to work at ALDI better than our employees. Take a look at what they have to say about what it means to be a part of the ALDI team and how we bring our Overarching Strategy to life.

"The work environment is very positive. You work together as a team. You all know what has to be done, and everybody pulls their weight."

– Glenda M., Store Associate

"When you open your eyes in the morning, you’re going to ask yourself one question, ‘How bad do you want it?’ How much do you want to hustle today? If you’re not willing to hustle, if you don’t care, this is not the right place for you."

– Mona G., District Manager

"My team is so great. We all come from different backgrounds. All of our personalities and ideas come together really well. And knowing that it makes such a big impact, just makes every day worth it."

– Shannin H., Project Analyst

"We pride ourselves in providing an exceptional customer experience with every customer interaction. The in-depth training provided to new agents is delivered through a very customer-centric focus."

Why our culture is our culture.

Visit any ALDI anywhere and you’ll feel something familiar. That’s not an accident. Our culture is based on empowering all of our people to achieve remarkable things, always improving as individuals and as a team, working together for our customers and for our community.

At the cornerstone of this, you’ll find the ALDI Management System (the AMS). This gives us a structure for cooperation and for working together. The AMS is comprised of four components:

  • Leadership
  • Responsibility
  • Communication
  • Teamwork

The main objective of the AMS is to clearly define our leadership principles and, in turn, create a culture with exceptional leaders and motivated teams. We give every employee the ability to make decisions independently and communicate openly. This fosters a collaborative environment based on mutual trust and respect. After being named among America’s Best Large Employers by Forbes for the last five years, it’s easy to see that the results are outstanding.

Where flat doesn’t mean flat.

Our organizational hierarchy is lean and free from layers of unnecessary complexity. This means that our people are given real decision-making authority and the ability to make a difference in our ever-growing organization.

Our flat structure helps us make quick decisions, communicate efficiently and give broader scopes of responsibility to everyone at ALDI. In return, this also gives our people a clear path for recognition and opportunities for advancement.
