Lidl Employee Review

Terrible place to work

Easy to get injured,high pallets,loads of straps,plastics,pieces of wood,cardboards on the floor,they have “pick rates” “targets” which is 250 boxes per hour average,you cannot reach them using manual handling so you have to bend your back not your knees,most of the times problems to receive holiday pay or sickness pay,lots of strange changes in working time every week,never know what time you finish,only know what time you start,in the event of fire they not evacuate people but send them to pick in different area of warehouse,i wouldn’t recommend it to anybody

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, bad management

Tough work

Work is tough. Constant staff change. Depends on department you are in. F&V is awful. Money is good but work life balance is difficult. Always asked to work extra.

Hate here

Bad place to work for. Would not recommend anyone to work in this company. Every manager in this company are on a ego trip. They need to listen to their staff and stop being so obnoxious. They are not the only ones in that company that are having a stressful day. They make employees work so hard in that company as if it was a concentration camp. Their staff are run off their feed running around doing picks, and I mean it can get so stressful at times. It gets so bad that the managers will keep employees in work as long as they can, just to pick the goods! Even if your are burnt out and even though you are trying to clock-out on time. They will Force you to stay behind! By threatening you that you will lose your job if you don’t stay behind and pick the last remaining goods. They just don’t care as long as you keep the paste up and pick over 5000 a day or even more. Which is a lot. Because they are on a big Commission if they get the goods out on time and get so many out on a day!
