Aldi to Hire 20,000 Workers Nationwide

ALDI, a discount grocery chain, announced plans to hire more than 20,000 new store and warehouse employees to support its continued growth across the country and prepare for the busy holiday season.

ALDI will also increase pay for new hires. The chain has over 2,100 stores across NY and 36 other states. ALDI is owned by a German company that also operates Trader Joe’s supermarket chain.

Available positions include store associate, cashier, stocker and warehouse associate at the grocery retailer’s more than 2,100 stores and 25 warehouses across the country. ALDI will host a National Hiring Week from Sept. 20-24, during which stores and warehouses will have interview events to fill available positions.

Known for its competitive pay, ALDI recently increased pay for store and warehouse employees. The new average national starting wages for open store and warehouse positions will be $15 and $19 per hour, respectively, based on market and position. ALDI employees are also 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. “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.”

ALDI supermarkets are typically 16,000 square feet in size.
