Why did you leave your job at Lidl?

13 answers

A lot of things were building up towards me leaving but the last of it was when an incident in work regarding a customer leaving with two 75cent cans unpaid for had served this man and because I didn't see the two cans I was brought up for meetings which contributed to stress related problems. As staff this shouldn't of happened as there are security in store to deal with the problems related to stock been robbed and so on. After having me up for months with investigation meetings all the done was give me a verbal warning I have sought legal advice with this matter and I have brought a case on with lidls. Shamble of a company to work for staff don't have any rights its all about meeting targets

There is a terrible culture within the company. Staff are expected to work themselves to the bone. Upper management are very much of the opinion that an autocratic, abusive style of management is the only way to achieve success. Health and safety practices aren't adhered to, especially heavy lifting. If you work a salary you will regularly be expected to work many extra hours that will never be lieud back to you meaning when hours worked are divided by the salary, the pay isn't actually as impressive as it initially seems.

Small wages for the work you do,a multi-multi task job,hypocrisy everything looks good on the paper but all is bad in reality, lying to customers about freshness of the products,all those rules and regulations are made for the company to make a big profit on little revenue payed, the tills set up to get minus always doesn't matter how accurate you are so that's another way of laundered money along with wages payed once a month...all toghether a job that suck the life out of you...stay away

Bullying. Isolation. Terrible management. Had a breakdown in the end and just walked. Too much expected in impossible timelines. Talked to like an incompetent child and a liar if you flag issues. 3 people left in a month. Was told many came and went in the months prior to my start. The hours also work out terrible. I had 9 one week. Working a close followed by an opening is also rough and not legal. But when you're on a 3 month probation you have nothing to fall back on.

No training, long hours, calling off shifts, swim or sink attitude

Lidl is the worst company to work for. They are unprofesional, unorganized, they do not care about training. In payroll are working useless people. They just care about profit. The worst year of my life.

Extremely unhappy environment and payroll issues
