New Aldi Store Confirmed

Monday June 3 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A NEW Aldi store creating 30 new jobs is to open.

Aldi confirmed they will build on a vacant site off Barnsley Road in Cudworth and it will open as early as next year.

Work will start on site later this year, they said.

The news was confirmed on Wednesday following a meeting with Barnsley Council earlier this month.

Aldi said the proposals will provide immediate investment in the area and its stores generally open seven days a week.

The firm say it will complement businesses in the area and will not compete with them directly as the new store will not have a bakery, fishmonger or cafe and does not sell newspapers, cigarettes and lottery tickets.

An Aldi spokesman added the store's car park will be free of charge and available to anyone wishing to make linked shopping trips to local shops.

"The new Aldi will bring much-welcomed jobs and bring variety for people to use different quality shops," Cllr Roy Miller said. "It's nice to see a positive move for people in Cudworth.

"I think it will complement existing businesses within the community. It's an excellent use of a piece of land that has not been maintained, it's good to see development in the Cudworth area."

the store will be great for cudworth, but as for working ther, they treat staff horribly and delay wages, tje pay is above coop and other shops , but hrs are worse and wrking conditions worst ive ever come accrss as a union representative, they also dont allow unions and if u tell them u are in one immediate dismissal, really not worth it, aldi is a terrible company to wrk for

Aldi very rarely do online applications or even work with local job centres.
It ones of the many ways the store is different to usual companies.

They only really accept CVs/letters in store (Barugh Green/Stairfoot). If they like the look of a CV, they get you in to do a one hour intence trial - usually at 6am.

Aldi is constantly considered one of the better companies to work for of it's type.
Also long as you don't mind the hours 6am-2pm and 1pm-9pm is normal, and the hard work, the pay is good. After three months you will get around £7.5 ph and it increases year upon year.

Some people are let go in their three month probabtion period, but that is becuase they aren't they don't like the 'pace.'
It isn't like Asda. You dont get paid to sit on a till all day and chat. You are paid to work every minute of your shift. Nothing wrong with that.

I know people who have been there months and I know people who have been their years. There is always good opportunities for promotion and those who do, get a good salary.

each to there own, but my experiences of aldi are mostly negative, and wouldnt want my wife or two sons to work ther under any circumstances put it that way.

Mark, I am a Cudworth lad who works for Aldi and it is an excellent company to work for. A union is not needed as all is in place internally if problems arise. If a person gets stuck in, promotion prospects are very high. Delayed wages? 1st i`ve heard! If any1 applies they just fill in a cv and hand it in at nearest Aldi. Working conditions are very good so I would like to know what is so bad about it, instead of you just saying it is bad. All the best to any1 who applies, as you are looked after= if you are a grafter :o)

wow, u really do love it, delayed wages 7 weeks 3 days for 9 hours pay staff turnover rate on average 28 % higher that other similar businessess, unreasonable working practices, fresh salad products well below standard expected(last 2 days at best), wouldnt work ther or shop ther personally but appreciate that u have diff experience of said business so up to the individual to decide i suppose, i could have jus had bad luck or perhaps u had good, who knows? all the best glad u r enjoying it,

Totally agree with the Baz's comment. I work at Barugh Green and I don't see anything wrong with the company.
Never had issues with late wages, never had issues with the job or the management.
I'd recommend it. As long as the hours suit your lifestyle and you graft, you'll benefit. I've seen a number of people get promoted in just the seven months I've been there.
Sure, if you're going to say negative comments about a place, you ought to back it up .

They recently had a very good training course of management structure, capability and the handling of issues in work. All useful and great to see, as many companies don't have this.
it is ture it takes a little longer to get to know your colleagues, but that is only because you're constantly working, rather than gassing on the shop floor.

I want a job at aldi , I have been trying to get a job there for ages but with no luck even though I have done similar roles before , how do I enquire as I would really like to be considered .

Reply Posted by GRR on Monday June 3 2013 at 16:31
just hand a CV/letter into your nearest store. They will be passed to the area manager and he will select who get brought in for work trials for the new store.
Simple. There is no formal application procedure. One of many ways of working that saves money.
