Job seekers must apply in person, but may see the hiring process and download the employment application in advance. Applicants must be able to lift and stock merchandise up to 45 pounds, have a high school diploma or G.E.D., and pass a background check and drug test.
ALDI offers a no-frills shopping experience, stocking predominately ALDI-exclusive brands, requiring customers to pay a quarter deposit for shopping cart use and either bring their own bags or buy reusable bags at the checkout. The company says it helps keep prices low by operating smaller energy efficient stores that are open only during the most popular shopping hours, usually 9 a.m.–8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday.
The Illinois-based company operates more than 1,500 stores in 33 states across the U.S.
