Lidl Employee Review

Bad place to work

Get lured into the job with promises of flexibility and a good salary. Training leaves a lot to be desired for, left to your own devices even though new employees get a training plan. Say goodbye to your personal life as you'll get rostered for 30 hours but end up working 40+. Working culture is awful as any requests for flexibility or less hours is seen as laziness. Big culture of talking behind people's backs. Management leaves a lot to be desired, they don't care about employee wellbeing or health. Overall choose this job if you want to lose your self respect and end up burning out.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

Long hours, lack of respect for employees

It’s ok for a while , decent pay

Job is alright for a while , pay is ok , that’s about the only benefit you really have tho. The work is not full time and you will be called on your days off to work. Overall it is ok I have met many nice people working along there but I would not recommend it as a long term work place. Bad management and bullying is a real thing there. If you are out of a job and would rather work while looking for a new job it’s a good Place to be.

Pros

Hourly rate and nice team mates

Cons

Poor management

your life depends on management mood

There is no life balance as they say, there is no 14.90 when u start. they will drop u anywhere every day. I was one day in bakery 5am-3pm another 12noon till midnight. Ya sometimes u finish even later close the shop means - YOU CLEAN. Then u work 3pm-close. every day different shift your- body clock goes crazy.Always short people
