Management at ALDI

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

My leader is amazing, she has been a real inspiration and mentors me regularly. We have regular catch ups to discuss my performance and business strategy.

The Directors are quite accessible to our department. We very rarely have contact with other Directors due to the flat structure.

My Direct Leader is very accessible and acts as a mentor. I appreciate that my leader highlights areas I need to improve that no other organization would address. Every employee also has a Personnel Leader who is responsible for hiring, discipline and promotion to avoid any bias. Performance feedback is fair and targets are obtainable.

The culture at Aldi is outstanding, particularly amongst the Area Manager group who are supportive and team orientated. As part of the initial training there is regular and ongoing feedback as to how you are progressing and once you received your stores you have six monthly formal reviews. Moreover, there is contact with the Store Operations Directors as required.

My Direct Leader is extremely accessible. We are governed by the ALDI Management System and each employee has a Direct Leader and a Personnel Leader. Communication channels are extremely clear and new Area Managers are provided with a mentor to guide them through the training process.

The business has improved on giving consistent and transparent feedback in a structured environment. In the past there has been a lack of positive feedback, although this is changing in the company. I believe this culture did exist to ensure people do not become complacent.
