    Neutral Outlook

    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.

      I have been working at Lidl full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      great pay can be fun if you're working with the right people

      Cons

      long hours mostly close shifts no support from higher management low motivation from staff Most staff don't feel appreciated No real training

      Advice to Management

      Lidl needs to take a step back and start treating their staff better. As a company all levels of staff need to feel more appreciated as their lack of compassion is making life in Lidl hard and makes people feel demotivated. If the company doesn't care about its staff it makes it very hard for store managers to be accommodating.

      really fast paced, dynamic and two days are never the same bringing a lot of variety and diversity.
