Great place to work
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare12 June 2018
Lidl gave me the opportunity to learn and work all paid by the company and even offered a full-time role with the company if you wished to continue working after the program. I am so grateful that I was part of the first class in Ireland to be involved with the company. It provided me with Degree from world-renowned Dublin Business School.

I met and worked with some amazing people and consider a lot of them still friends to this day.

No life if you're a manager
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin21 May 2018
If you are a dep/sm/som you will literally have no life but Lidl. Cut every corner possible, spare every expense and work management and staff to the bone. Any good managers get out of there quickly and it is evident in every store.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Work life balance is non existent

Great place for hardworkers
Trainee Deputy Manager/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Letterkenny15 May 2018
Great place to work if you want a secure job with good opportunities for advancement for hard workers.
You get a good wage for the type of work. The staff in the my branch are all good people and hard workers.

On the bad side there is an issue with hours being cut for staff to save money. Sometimes managers do not correctly allocate the staff shifts and sometimes one shift is left with more work than it is possible to get done on time.
There is not enough training for the job. You have to learn as you go.

The worst nightmare that you could dream about
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Newbridge, County Kildare11 April 2018
Success of this company is based on a lie. You can't ask for anything but if you try then be prepared to meet a wall. This is perfect job only for young physically fit people without kids or even partner. Really easy to get injured when working especially in fruit & veg dept. Loads of straps, pallets, pieces of broken palles on the floor. If You will hit their targets they gonna always ask for more and more. Maybe stores is a different place.. Management cares only about numbers. You must ask even before goin to the toilet. And the last thing is You work really fast then You can get like 6 hours if not they will make a problems even to work those contracted ones.

So much to learn but lack of management support
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) –  Dublin28 March 2018
Work can be very physical and stressful. New staff are expected to have the same outcome as the older staff. You have to be fully flexible to do the job from doing till,packing,baking and merchandising.
Pros
salary
Cons
long hours

Nice place to work
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Glenageary, County Dublin26 March 2018
Timings are bit odd which doesn't suit me well. Secondly, it's very far from where I lived. Other than that every thing was alright. Lot of opportunities of carers progress ion into Lidl.

Great money, hard work, no work life balance
Sales Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin, Ireland26 February 2018
No one retires from Lidl. It's burn and churn management. The money is great. Leadership tends to be old and bitter or young and inexperienced. They make unwanted promotions and terminations frequently. Old boys club could be used to describe the company.

Great salary and benefits, no work-life balance
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Cork1 February 2018
If you are willing to put your life on hold and earn some good money this is the job for you!
Long hours at times unsociable, extremely physical workload in somewhat unrealistic time constraints

Very dynamic environment
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) –  Dublin13 January 2018
Can be much better. sometimes is organisation of the job very low.
Very often you are splitted between tills and work on shop floor.
Sometimes must stay much longer after your shift after store closing because of cleaning and sorting and products separation.
