    I have been working at Lidl part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - good pay - it's easy to work your way up in the company fairly quickly - good incentives such as extra weeks holiday after 4 years

    Cons

    - demanding - not for the faint hearted - poor work/life balance - anti social hours

    Advice to Management

    - advice to head office would be to loosen the purse strings and give more hours to each store

    I worked at Lidl full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay among the top competitors in Retail, every store is different in terms of people work ethic. Nice place to make your bones, hard work for strong donkey people. It has improved a lot since they changed the social colour from blue to grey.

    Cons

    Very bad company culture, most of the managers are very rude and unpleasant with their colleagues and also with customers. High turnover because of the few above nominated. There is no Union at all, just a German representative of the company who basically should protect you from the abuse of your line manager, but it never happens. Employees doesn't like each other so don't expect such good atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Try to put down the Productivity or to hire at least 1 person more for every shift, otherwise one day your employees will make a Revolution.
