    I worked at Lidl full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary seems appealing, but break it down over the hours you will, and be answering your phone at home, and be bothered constantly by Area Managers outside of your working hours, and you will see you are on a very poor hourly wage!

    Cons

    Many many cons.....health and saftety is a biggy, doesnt exist in lidl, you just get on with it, even simple jobs like 2 people lifting doesnt get done, expect to be physically broken!!! Security, doesnt happen in lidl either, no security guards, deal with shoplifters etc yourself, if you get attacked then please finish serving the customers, restock the shelves, do the bakery, clean the floors, cash up, then get yourself...

    No advice because you never listen, you all think your gods but in fact you all the ones who just put up with it the longest, i hold no grudges against anyone, but I just dont know how you can carry on working that way!

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

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Excellent Benefits, International Company

    Cons

    Inconsistent Management, Toxic Culture, inconsistent supply chain

    Advice to Management

    Hold your operational executives and district managers accountable. I've been here for two years and am genuinely disgusted by the number of times I've seen incompetent management rewarded with lateral transfers to HQ. Likewise, I've seen store level management "promote" an employee only to work them for months in their position before submitting their paperwork, blaming slow HR processes for the lag in pay. Of course,...

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Never get a second, it's non stop every day. Keeps you fit though

    Advice to Management

    I know the moto is we save on bills so customers save on the tills but i think by adding a few more working hours into each store would enable staff to engage more with the customers. Which in turn I believe would generate more revenue going in the long run because a common complaint i recieved from customers was that there was never any staff on the floor and if there was they they came across that they were too busy.

    I have been working at Lidl full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay structure, Holiday entitlement.

    Cons

    Constant change of management team, lack of internal progression, poor equipment provided constantly breaks or needs repair. Can be moved to another shop with little or no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your own management team instead of continuously bringing in graduates who we then have to teach to do their job! It's impossible to get any support for store assistance at weekends as headoffice and rdcs basically close down. Stop moving managers around! We create a great team and then you swap and change my team and we have to start all over again.
