Sales Associate (Former Employee) – London, ON – 28 December 2018
I had fun working at Aldo and talking to the regulars but working 5-12 hour shifts with only one 30 min break in the day was very exhausting because both stores were always understaffed. This made the job/ position more stressful and what also made things stressful was when they would ask for big tasks at the end of the night ex:( massive mark downs, visual merchandising and signage) . I hope this review helps iniciates the nesessary changes to improve employee and customer satisfaction.
Cette compagnie na pas de valeurs. -Travail fatiguant moralement -Salaire minimum -Il baisse les heures des employé sils atteignent pas leurs objectifs. -il ya toujours des camps celui des mechant et des gentils (grosomodo comme si vous retourneriez a lecole). -il ne sont pas pointe sur la personne mais sur limage Cest a dire la gerante regionale du magasin a dis a la gerante de verifier les les profils facebook des gens qui postulent pour voir comment ils s'habillent. -il ont aucun esprit de vente ou de service ala clientele Il renvoient les gens gentils en refusant leur retour. -et font les retour pour les plus obstine pour leur droit. -il vont te couper tes heures si tu demande il te sortiront une excuse fatale du genre tu nas pas vendu assez de sac a main. -Racisme et favoritisme -appel une heure avant le shift pour demander de rentrer.
En gros si tu es "temps plein" qui est 25h chez eux haha du jamais vu mais bon TU NA PA dE VIE.
Courte pause ou pas de pause, racisme, on coupe les heures jusqua 0, on te change de temps plein a temps partiel sans avis, on exploite les employe travailleurs pendant que les moins serieux sont choye

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

Going to work never felt like work, because of the amazing co-workers I had the opportunity to work with. Everyone in the team of Aldo uses teamwork to make the most out of a productive day. The co-workers became more like family and we all became very close and still keep in contact after we stopped our time at Aldo

Fantastic culture and atmosphere created consistently throughout most ALDO stores. Little to no complaints as company helps in progression to further more than just position, but additionally education, and multiple contests to instill incentive. A company with fresh modern ways to make working and consuming at ALDO to be mutually beneficial. The true problem is within current management.
Fun place to work but will definitely take advantage of you whenever possible and necessary
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 November 2018
Aldo is a good place to work at, but the company values are not seen in every store and district managers dont pay much attention to that as long as the store is working as it should. Managers do a lot of inappropriate things on the daily and nobody finds out. Hard workers are taken advantage off and lazy people rewarded. If you want a job at this company be prepared to have no personal life, most managers will call you to come work on days off and if you say yes once then that it, they usually convince you to take more and more shifts. Salary wise they will definitely pay you as least as possible and will never try to do the fair thing to keep good/hard working staff.
If you’re looking for a part time job go for it! If you are looking for a long term career, i wouldn't bother!
Most of the time you meet really nice people
Salary, company values not respected, a lot of unfair treatment not being seen by superiors

Working for this company is fun but your job is not always secured. The district managers will hire and fire anyone they want, they don't allow their managers to have a voice. It is a very sales driven environment, you always have to make your target or else the district managers will threaten to let you go. They never fire their employees, instead they cut their hours until they are no longer on the schedule. They will keep you on payroll so that they don't give you your entitled vacation pay. the district managers want you to fear them so they are very rude and condescending to their employees. It was a fun environment, fast paced, and store managers are great. Workers have to be super trendy and fashion forward, so if you're into fashion and dressing up, this is a great spot to work. It would be better if the DMs weren't the only voice of the company and did not gossip about their employees. There is only room to move up if you're liked. AH was hard to work for. To work for this company you have to have very thick skin.
