Love Aldi? You Could Snag a Job at a New Jersey Location Wednesday
Aldi is continuing its U.S. hiring frenzy in the Garden State, with the announcement of 250 jobs open at 42 locations across the state.
Just show up to any New Jersey Aldi on Wednesday, Oct. 11, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., and you might walk out with a job paying as much as $56,000 a year, according to a news release.
The New Jersey hiring event is smaller than Aldi’s recent hiring spree in Florida but tracks with the company’s massive U.S. expansion. The grocery chain has new stores opening in Egg Harbor, Flemington, Hamilton and Old Bridge, the release states.
Aldi Is Hiring for Several Positions at New Jersey Stores
Aldi hopes to find associates, shift managers and manager trainees at its new and existing New Jersey stores.
A high school diploma or GED and some retail experience are preferred for all three positions, and you’ll have to be able to work between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. any day of the week. If you can lift 45 pounds and pass a background check and drug screening, you’re golden.
Here’s how the pay breaks down: Store associates and shift managers will earn up to $12.40 an hour, while the latter position will garner an extra $4.25 an hour when performing managerial work.
Manager trainees, who preferably have some management experience, can make up to $56,160 annually, with the opportunity to earn as much as $95,000 a year as a store manager.
All Aldi employees have the option to open a 401(k), and those who work more than 25 hours a week are eligible for dental coverage and health insurance.
If you love shopping — and saving — at Aldi, then you don’t want to pass up this opportunity.
