On the Fortune top 20 retail places to work list for 2022, Aldi came in at No. 16. The deeper survey results showed that 79% of the Aldi employees who took part in the survey rated it as a great place to work overall. A full 88% of the survey respondents agreed with the statement, “When you join the company, you are made to feel welcome,” and 87% concurred with “I am treated as a full member here regardless of my position” in reference to their experience working for Aldi.
Fortune says “57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company” rank their workplaces as a great place to work, so Aldi definitely stands out. Some reviews on the employment website Indeed may shed some light on why that is the case. One reviewer wrote that the benefits are good, and the company promoted the worker within a year. Others cited the team atmosphere or gave Aldi good marks for its employee compensation. Not every review was glowingly positive, however, as some shared that the labor can be physically demanding and the pace of the work can be difficult to keep up with.
It remains to be seen whether Aldi will hold onto its spot in this ranking in subsequent years. But for now, the results suggest Aldi is making the right moves to keep many employees happy.
