ALDI, exploring U.S. growth opportunities while preparing for the 2021 holidays, plans to hire more than 20,000 new store and warehouse employees for more than 2,100 stores and 25 warehouses across the country.
In a recent initiative, ALDI increased pay for store and warehouse employees. The new average national starting wages for open store and warehouse positions are $15 and $19 per hour, respectively, based on market and position, the company noted. In addition, ALDI employees are eligible for a range of benefits, including health care and retirement plans, financial wellness and employee assistance programs, and generous paid time off.
“As an award-winning employer, we know the importance of investing in our people,” said Dave Rinaldo, co-president, ALDI U.S., in announcing the hiring effort. “Employees come to ALDI for the competitive pay and opportunity to work for a growing national brand. They stay for the career potential and satisfaction they feel knowing their work makes a difference in the communities they serve.”
