Instead of micromanaging trivial and petty details which have zero impact on safety or operations maybe the higher up executives who come to the store like once a year just to criticize and point out all the things wrong with the store - maybe instead of doing this try giving compliments and saying nice things. Generally people respond much better to positive praise and feedback - knowing that they are doing a good job and hearing that directly from those in charge of running this company that would go a long way. The culture in Aldi is pretty bad right now - very negative and critical instead of uplifting and positive. So maybe the next time one of those executives from the corporate or division's office step inside one of their stores to complain and find fault with virtually every single petty detail which doesn't matter in the larger scope of things - try focusing on the bigger picture instead. One single stain on a floor or one single piece of less than perfect produce 100% is not what the higher up executives in Aldi should be focusing on - instead come to the stores and compliment your people for getting all their work done delivering good customer service and seeing how the store is free from safety hazards. Trust me positive praise and feedback goes a very long way and would probably help reduce some of the very high turnover right now inside this company.

I applied online, got an invite to a group interview a few days later, I was the 1st person at the group interview out of about 40 people. The district and regional managers were there went over a few basic questions and told me that was all and the would email me if interested. I went home and not even 1 hour later the district manager called me from his personal phone and asked if i could go back for a second interview. I went back as soon as I got the call and interviews with the district and regional manager and after the interview I picked up a few groceries and as I was leaving the register the district manager chased me down as I was leaving and offered me a position on the spot. He said he didn't want me leaving without good news. Needless to say I started a week later.

Yup every single weekend haven't had consecutives Saturday Sunday one off in over 5 years working in this company and your schedule always changing literally day to day so you can not ever plan ahead a couple hours ahead in your own personal life, this job makes it impossible to make plans with family - probably why they have such high turnover beczue of very little work/life balance
