      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

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

      Pros

      Pay is good for a supermarket The training (while capricious and the training machine often breaks) is thorough Good colleagues

      Cons

      Never enough staff working so management are always stressed. Head office is very disorganised, losing contracts, not processing payment alterations for months. Lack of compassion and an almost bullying forcefulness to get ill staff to either go to the doctors or come to work despite contract stating 7 days of illness can be self-certified.

      Advice to Management

      Employ more customer assistants.

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

        Pros

        Great way to gain experience Superb young people to network with

        Cons

        Pay isn't great Poor Management, no understanding of what leadership truly is (Most departments but not all) Constant micromanagement leads to a completely unnecessary stressful work environment

        Advice to Management

        Actually try to learn what your employees do. Unrealistic expectations and lack of feedback lead to high turnover. Basically the same as every other review on here.
