AN ALDI employee has said ringing up customers for hours on end is more monotonous than sitting through training.
On a subreddit for Aldi employees, one reported crew member said watching mandatory training videos was better than dealing with customers, and several others agreed.
The Reddit post from user @Malancholy included a picture of an Aldi training on discrimination and harassment.
The caption said, "i cannot stand these online trainings but it’s better than dealing with customers."
Other alleged employees quickly agreed, one even said they love the videos and "feeling peaceful in the knowledge that I'm not having to deal with any of those customers."
Another said they use the video trainings as "meditation time."

The discussion continued on Reddit when an employee posted a "passive-aggressive" note from management regarding start times.
The anonymous worker, in the US, posted a photo of the note that says, "Policy is 5 minutes prior to your shift is on time! Do Not Be Late!"
Sharing the situation on Reddit, the original poster dropped the photo with the caption: "So this appeared taped onto our time clock this week."
The replies revealed this had allegedly happened at other locations as well with poor results.

"They tried to enforce this multiple times at my location but they gave up after a while because I'm sure they know it's a dumb policy," one user said.
The original poster responded with: "Our store routinely doesn't even take you off the register for several minutes past shift, no one ever leaves on time and it has almost nothing to do with the 5 minutes the next shift takes."
Not everyone was appalled by the request and some even defended it.
One person explained; "To play devil's advocate, I can see this because many people clock into work, and then spend time putting away their bag, coat, phone, finding their knife, getting a drink ready, etc."
"If your relief is waiting for you, don't make them stay later because you're lollygagging around."
On the other hand, Julia Rowland, who claims to work for the supermarket chain, opened up about her three major hacks – and one of them will save you tons of money.
Taking to TikTok, the Aldi employee started off by reminding people to always bring a quarter because it's the only way to grant you access to a shopping cart.
If you forgot to bring reusable bags and don't want to get charged for using plastic or paper ones, you can simply grab a box!
