What makes a great Store Assistant? Well, it’s the little things really. A queue of customers at the till? You’ll jump on a different till and halve their waiting time. A pallet of bananas in the warehouse? You’ll put them out in the store, rather than wait for someone else to do it. Ultimately, it’s all about being a naturally friendly, respectful and thoughtful colleague who’s a bundle of enthusiasm and positivity. It’s this positive attitude that helps to make Aldi wonderfully different, not to mention successful.
As an Aldi Store Assistant, you’ll earn €12.30 per hour rising to €14.10 per hour.
You name it, you get it. (Well, within reason.) But from long service awards and parental leave, to a whole range of lifestyle perks, it’s all on offer.
Your usual contracted hours will be around 25 hours per week, however additional hours are often available.
You’ll find fewer Store Assistants at Aldi than most supermarkets. Partly because of the efficient way we work. But also because they’re pretty unique. While others may shirk at the responsibility, our people love to roll up their sleeves and keep the store running as efficiently as possible. Want to know more? Well, let our Store Assistants tell you and watch their videos. They like to do things for themselves, after all.
Before you tell us more about your skills and attributes, you’ll need to take our situational judgement test. It’s a great way to see if you’re right for Aldi, and if we’re right for you. We’ll test key skills such as mental arithmetic, judgement or memory.
Next, our recruitment team will check your application. If you’re successful, you’ll be invited to an interview. Time for a quick celebration, before brushing up on everything Aldi.
Then it’s time for your interview. This will be with an Area Manager in a store. Afterwards, you’ll take part in the ‘Aldi Experience’, where you’ll get the chance to observe the different tasks you would be expected to complete in the role.

Then it’s time to apply and become an Aldi Store Assistant.
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 above.
You’ll need to be comfortable with numbers, but other than that this is about having a friendly personality, a ‘get-on-with-it’ kind of attitude and a passion for the business.
It can be tough in store, and lots of different challenges will come your way. We need to know that you can handle hard work and that you’re great at dealing with people. Most of all, you’ll be a reliable team member, happy to help out whenever possible.
We’ll create a training programme that suits you. It normally lasts around six weeks and involves all kinds of activities. Experienced colleagues will take you under their wing and help you learn everything from till work and stock replenishment to store cleaning, customer service and the ins and outs of Health & Safety. Both your Store Manager and Area Manager will be closely involved to make sure you have everything you need.
This will take place in a store in your region. We will try to locate you as close to home as possible.
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.
The stores will be local but travelling by public transport may not always be convenient. It’s always a big help if you have the flexibility to provide cover in other local stores.
It’s simple really. We believe that they’re 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 Assistants work hard, they’re flexible, they use their initiative… at the end of the day, they deserve every cent.
It depends on the store size but you’ll normally work with an average of 25 colleagues.
Store Assistants work between 20 and 30 hours a week, depending on the type of contract that suits you and the Store. The Store Manager will draw up the rota four 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.
If your interview has been postponed you will be contacted directly by the Hiring Manager to advise of a change of date. If you are not contacted to advise on interview postponement then your interview will go ahead as agreed, however some interviews may take place by voice or video call. Any face to face interviews will take place only under HSE guidance i.e. social distancing measures are adhered to.
All candidates whether successful or not will be notified. We are understandably receiving a high volume of applications at the moment so it is taking longer than usual to process, but assure you we are working very hard to process as many applications as we can.
If you are looking for a temporary position in store (less than 4 months), then we might have a role for you.Temporary Roles
