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

    Pros

    In a management position at Lidl you will learn as much as you want, but only if you want to. Motivation is the key and the more motivated you are the easier it is to progress in the company. Well paid, structure based work, fair workload.

    Cons

    No bonus scheme, depending on the store and position but you may notice favouritism.

    Advice to Management

    Treat them how you want to be treated.

    Pros

    Salary is very good Holiday entitlement

    Cons

    Excessive workload- be expected to have a perfect store, hit your KPIs, have all staff happy, go on tills to cover breaks, work huge amounts of delivery (can be alone as all staff are on till), check everyone else’s work (if they get off till) complete all paperwork with nowhere near enough hours to complete all the jobs.... and have your phone ready for the messages and calls you may get when resting or days off. ...

    Advice to Management

    When I read that we have come a long way, I really don’t see it. I see we have come a long way at going backwards and I really do feel a lot of positive thoughts and feedback is not a true reflection of what I am hearing from managers and staff throughout the company. Which I think is a shame. 5 star reviews on this or any other site are never a true reflection on any company, we can only move forward with honesty...

    I worked at Lidl full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary and benefits but nothing else

    Cons

    Everything else. Esp management and their approach towards people. Being in Senior management I was told to treat everyone lower me as absolute idiots and trash. Was relocated to other country for initial training. Everyone since day 1 was horrible. Discrimination was blooming due to my age, sexual orientation and for being foreigner. My line manager was and I believe still is the most horrible person I have ever met...

    Value every employee as everyone is equal human being. No one is better or more supreme just because of their job title.

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

    Pros

    Pay is good per hour, Redbull is free for the taking

    Cons

    Management only care about their pay packet an its hard to care for staff or customers when you do not get a second to breath. Work load is unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan and stop running the business on the edge, if some profits were sacrificed for good staff the business would grow
