stressful and not fun
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Charleville, County Cork19 January 2020
Bad hours and you work hard. Management does not care if you work hard and won't care if you are tired. They just want the work done and do not care if you are exhausted from working 6 days in a row.

Horrible place to work
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Mullingar, County Westmeath12 December 2019
Absolute joke company worked in the Mullingar warehouse for 3 and a half years and the best thing I ever did was leave
No concept of people caring more about there life outside of lidl the company has to come first
Money is good if your prepared to work at weekends at night and do 50 hour weeks
Your told you can progress that s nonsense
Back breaking labour with no standard of health and safety you are looked at as a number and you will be flogged until you can't work anymore
Ridiculously underqualified supervisors who have no concept of what there supervising bit will then criticise performance when you might see them for 5 mins a week overall disgrace of a company and no amount of money would get me too work there again

hard working
CUSTOMER ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Sligo10 December 2019
Lidl has a fast paced environment but has a great team. When working in Lidl you always feel that you are part of a team and that you are supported. I feel my team working skills have been enhanced as well as my problem-solving skills from having to think of solutions to customer complaints and issues that may arise in the store as fast as possible.

Probably ok for a customer Assistant
Deputy Manager (Current Employee) –  Dublin9 December 2019
They expect too much from you with no training. they expect you go do your own training 🙄 there's no staff , and as a manager with no Lidl experience you have to sit on tills but you need to find your own training

Hard work, but paid very well
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Galway3 December 2019
Have to be ready to work different shifts and weekends, every day/ week is different. Fastpaced, but rewarding. It's very hard to find a job as well paid as in Lidl.

Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Tuam, County Galway13 November 2019
Very hard work, management stick where they are with not much movement so only able to progress when they decide to leave. Pays very well for both staff and management but work life balance suffers because of it.

Had many great years until change in the board
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Ireland21 October 2019
An amazing 12years, until the board of Directors, changed. A case of if your face doesn't fit move on. Having spent many happy years with the company the team managing the overall business changed and caused havoc for many of the existing team who had dedicated many years to the growth and development of the company. When management run the business with the sole purpose of making themselves look good at the expense of others it is time to pull out and move on. Sneaky, underhanded tactics were used consistently to demotivate and undermine any of the activities that had been implemented over previous years, many of which had been extremely successful. Still have a very positive attitude towards the business as a whole, however, the current reputation gained by the current Irish Board says it all!!!

Disrespectfull to individuals
Sales Assistant/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Mullingar, County Westmeath27 September 2019
Managers have only one goal, it is to acomplish sale targets. They do not care about their working colegues, and do not respect private time. Working rosters are made with no sense to humanity. There is one group of people who are privileged in company, people with Lithuanian passport.
Training proces is bad, they just need people to work as numbers, not humans.

Place where you will find out what you are able to do, and what challenges you can manage. Place where you survive or leave. Only strongest and hard working stays.

Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Buncrana, County Donegal10 September 2019
Only good thing about this company is the wages but you work for every penny that you earn as nothing is easy about working here. You have no life outside of lidl as your called in all the time for extra shifts to cover people. Managers could do with some basic training on how to actually treat their staff with some respect rather than treat them like the dirt on their shoes. Being tore to shreds for simple errors and never praised. Mental bullying at its finest
