Does Lidl offer massages?

Pros

- Benefits - Salary - Great team - Free Office massage - Office gym

Cons

- I felt sometimes that they are not very flexible, maybe it's a German attitude - It was clearly said under my training that if I make a mistake I could be fired. We are humans, we learn from our mistakes, what is that mentality. - Most guys from the procurement worked a lot, 10-12 hours were the average every workday.

Does Lidl offer parental leave?

Pros

Good pay is the only reason I'm still there and there not too bad in fitting my shift around my baby's child care although I do have to swap shift a lot.

Cons

BULLIES.... management have done nothing to help a colleague of mine to stop the bullying happening and they are in management. Also get called useless a lot as I'm 5ft 2 and can't reach top of pallets or top shelf. Also I have only been off maternity 1 month and I'm getting penalised for not knowing where everything is. I cover a lot of other people's evening shifts when they don't turn up and get no thanks..... I feel as thou I'm used as a puppet for them all to pick on and talk about. I hate going to work but I feel like I'm stuck.

Advice to Management

Take bullying serious. Managers need to have some balls to stand up to them.
