Customer focused hands on operation

Spent 5 years as a manager with Lidl. The job was never boring and days were long but time passed very quickly. The job was straight forward and the lidl systems were easy to follow and implement. Staff recruitment was difficult at times and the staff turnover was quite high as was staff absenteeism. The salary was good and morale was good amongst staff and management as you were working with small teams. On the negative side , experienced managers had to put up with 2 to 3 visits a week from very inexperienced area managers some of whom had never stepped foot in a retail store prior to joining Lidl. Some of these area managers would make demands and to do lists which couldn't have been done with 20 staff never mind 5 staff . Apart from some of the area managers it was a good experience.

Pros

Salary, systems

Cons

Inexperienced area managers with no concept of how to help and motivate staff and management.
