Minimum wage is not ideal, would be much more motivated if we made comission. Ipods are out of date and inventory is constantly wrong. management gives new schedule 2 days before the week.. not enough time in advance.
District managers are not understanding. you’re made to feel guilty/pressured into putting more work in. Very little coaching or store presence from district managers but will write in your quarterlies the things you need to work on but not follow up/ work on these areas with you and then turn it back around on you
Overall the job was fairly self-explanatory and manageable. It can be quite repetitive and tedious but it is a decent part-time job. As long as you do your work and remain responsible, you shouldn't have any issues.
although there were some tough situations to handle such as customer complaints but we as employees could handle the difficulties that were part of our responsibility and create a great team to work with each other in a friendly environment
What makes a job enjoyable is the people you work with. The team I was a part of was full of wonderful people. Very supportive and friendly. The manager and supervisors cared for their employees well-beings as well.
The job itself was alright. Like any typical retail job where you assist customers with their shopping. There was a balance between friendly and rude customers.
The only bad thing is that there is not a lot of room for advancement and you do not always get the amount of work hours you were promised. You can work there for years and remain the same position/pay. It really depends on the manager.
A productive and fun place to work. Everyone is very welcoming and inclusive. It was a great environment, a typical day at work included putting stock away as well as helping out customers. Throughout my experience at Aldo, I have learned customer service skills, as well as determination and motivation. However one of the most important things I took away was how to work with a team.
Like most other retail positions. You talk with customers, get them sizes, give opinions on what looks good.
The managers were nice from what I remember. Answered any questions you may have, gave tips and tricks for selling products.
Hardest part is being on your feet all day or if you're not a people person all the time.
Most enjoyable part was the associates I worked with.
