It's great in this endless news cycle of hearing about stores closing or going out of business to get work of a local business that's doing great and hiring!

These aren't minimum wage jobs either. How does $11.75 an hour sound? Aldi food stores are looking to add people to their Stateline area stores and have just announced a hiring event. Locally, Aldi is looking to add staff at these locations in:

  • Belvidere
  • Freeport
  • Loves Park
  • Rochelle
  • Machesney Park
  • Rockford
  • Roscoe

They will be hiring store associates. These positions pay $11.75/hour to start with annual raises to $13.50/hour over 36 months

In addition, Aldi is looking to add shift managers. Shift managers are paid the associate wage + $4.50/hour when performing manager duties. (manager pay range: $16.25 to $18.00 hr)
