Lidl Employee Review

Tough work

I've worked in discount retail managemet for years and although lidl has a great system in place its hard to follow it when you're not given the right tools to do your job. Overall if you can deal with stress and a high pressure job you can deal with lidl manager jobs, if multitasking, delegating tasks or hitting very tight targets is tough for you avoid it at all costs.

No work and life balance

They absolutely don't care about your family life. They want you to be available 24/7. They want you to work like a horse to do 10 jobs in one day thats why they pay a little bit more than in other retailers. Store managers sitting in the office 24/7 and demanding from Deputy Managers to do more and to be faster. Store managers taking weekends off but when you ask its never possible. Deputy managers are extremely needed when the hard job needs to be done but when they need promotion they are ALWAYS NOT GOOD ENOUGH but NO TRAINING PROVIDED BY THE COMPANY. Its a lie THEY PROVIDE FULL TRAINING. DON'T FALL FOR THAT. They will show you two things and after they will expect from you to be on the store manager LEVEL. ITS ABSOLUTELY NON SENSE. AVOID!!!!! PEOPLE STAY BECAUSE OF GOOD MONEY.ITS NOT WORTH IT.!you are only a number to them.

Stressful

Too much work all of the time with not enough staff. Management don’t get proper breaks and have to work well over rostered hours to get the work done.

Fast-paced, rather rewarding work

Lots to learn if you seek to improve your skillset, even after working there for months. Fast-paced work where attention to detail and good communciation is vital. If you try, it can be rewarding.
