As a discount supermarket we play a vital role in giving households access to good food at affordable prices, and it’s our incredible colleagues that make it happen. That’s why, from next week (October 1st), we’re increasing the pay of all 23,500 of our hourly paid colleagues for the second time this year, taking entry-level rates from £10.10 to £10.90 per hour outside of London and from £11.30 to £11.95 inside the M25. It’s a £39.5 million investment – and represents a pay rise of between 10-14.5% since this time last year. Ryan McDonnell, Lidl GB CEO comments “We have introduced these rate increases to reflect the key role and tireless efforts of our incredible colleagues working in our 935 stores and 13 warehouses. The role that we as a discounter play in giving households access to good, affordable food cannot be underestimated, now more than ever. But the ongoing commitment and dedication of our colleagues in making it all possible for our customers cannot be underestimated either – our business simply would not run without them.”

  1. Shop Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lidl (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Although the interview went well and I was assured of a response the next day, they never contacted me and I was unable to get in touch with the interviewer. I think they thought I was overqualified but they didn't need to act as if I had the job then never call.
