About 90% of the products sold at Aldi are estimated to be private label.
One of my favorite parts about recruiting for Aldi was how happy people were to find their new salaries.
Few Workers and Higher Salaries
Cashiers would sometimes go from minimum wage to $15 an hour, and assistant managers would increase their hourly pay by $5 an hour. That can be life-changing money to some people.
At the same time, a higher salary comes with higher expectations. Aldi workers earn every penny of their extra hourly wage. As a result, you’ll rarely walk into an Aldi store and see an employee sitting idol.
From their staffing model to their use of energy-efficient lighting, their method to stock shelves, and so much more.
