Between March and May, as you're no doubt aware by now, Aldi's set to reshape the local grocery-shopping landscape -- just get your quarters ready if you need a shopping cart. And, just fair warning: When I lived in Wisconsin years ago, I tried shopping at Aldi but found the selection ... wanting, let's say. So while some of us aren't as tickled by grocery news as others (especially the hungry hordes awaiting the arrival of H-E-B, good Lord), don't let our cynicism stop you from dropping by 4120 Gaston Avenue today from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. as the German-based supermarket chain is accepting applications for cashiers, offering an impressive 10 bucks per hour, full benefits (medical, dental, vision) and even 401(k). And the health-care coverage? Only $10 a month (or $160/mo. for family coverage)!
