Aldi Ireland is now recruiting store assistants to join its growing team across its 24 Cork stores.

We spoke to Aldi Mitchelstown Store Assistant Viki Srama to learn more about working with Aldi.

What attracted you to a career with Aldi?

I began working with Aldi last year and I am really enjoying it! I was attracted to the challenge of working in a fast-paced environment, and I knew Aldi would support me in my career. I previously worked in retail and I was keen to bring my experience to the table.

What is the best part of your job?

I really enjoy working as part of a team and gaining the support needed to progress in my career. The atmosphere is always positive and supportive in our store, which has been key over the past 18 months throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Aldi recognises and rewards hard work and there are excellent opportunities to progress. If you have a great work ethic and you are committed to doing your best every day, Aldi will happily push you forward in your career.

What kind of benefits do you get?

Aldi offers market-leading pay and is the highest paying supermarket in Ireland. In addition, the training we receive is fantastic and it has been applicable to all areas of my life. From training courses to customer service essentials, Aldi truly values staff and ensures everyone performs to the best of their ability.

Aldi also offers paid holidays and bank holidays, and a rewards scheme for discounts on gym memberships, clothing stores and restaurants.

What about work/life balance?

A good work/life balance is essential, and Aldi understands this. We work in shifts and the hours are flexible which means I have enough time to enjoy my personal interests. Our shifts and hours are also planned four weeks in advance, which really helps with planning my life outside of work.

What is your advice for people thinking of joining the Aldi team?

If you wish to work in a fast-paced environment where every day is different and you get to help customers daily, all while being supported in your career by an employer with an excellent reputation, then this is the job for you!
