You have to be good at almost every aspect of the job if you want to grow, you will be doing many tasks throughout the day, from cleaning and serving customers to filling out paperwork and answering incoming calls.
In the beginning, most of your time will be spent packing, restocking on shelves, and serving customers at the checkout.

The hardest part of the job is multitasking, sometimes you need to be in two places at the same time, but over time you get used to it. The nice part is getting your work done when you realize you've done your best to offer the best customer service in Lidl.
Pros
Flexible hours, high salary

Ik heb het me altijd wel naar mijn zin gehad bij de LIDL. De collegas en managers maken er een goede sfeer van en het loopt er lekker door. Ik zat vaak achter de kassa, wat helaas niet echt mijn ding was sinds ik graag dynamisch bezig wil zijn. Voor iemand die dit prima vind, is het een aanrader! Ook is het salaris prima.
Pros
Prima werkplek met een goed salaris

Körperlich anstrengende Arbeit aber durch viele Zuschläge im Früschicht-/Spätschichtsystem gut bezahlt.
Früh ist wirklich früh...bei uns ging es um 4:45 los und ging an Samstagsabend auch gerne bis 22:30...

Worked here for about 9 months and I enjoyed working with the people in my store except for one or two managers who made me dread going into work everyday. Pay is good but only because they expect you to work far harder than at other supermarkets and I have no problem whatsoever with working hard but sometimes they almost expect you to complete tasks that are physically impossible. Overall not the worst place to work but far from being the best, would not recommend to a friend
Pros
Good Salary, some good Co-Workers
Cons
Unrealistic expectations of you, managers can be bad to work for

Am Anfang wurde ich richtig gut behandelt aber dann mit der Zeit ließ alles nach. Ich wurde nach einem Monat in der Probezeit einfach gekündigt ohne Grund warum und weshalb. Ich habe stets mein Bestes geben und trotzdem hat es nicht gereicht. Von mir wurde verlangt das ich innerhalb einer Woche alles kann die Einschulung in der Filiale war sehr schlecht die Chefin sehr unfreundlich. Wenn es um Fragen ging bekam ich fast immer eine schnipische Antwort. Die einzige nette Person die ich dort sah war der Verkaufsleiter und die in Regionalgesellsschaft waren sehr nett aber in der Filiale selbst war es ein Horror. Dieses nette getue am Anfang einfach nur Schauspiel, Nie mehr wieder.

Entreprise où les employés sont des pions, des numéros plus exactement, les responsables sont de mauvais managers, la pression est difficilement supportable. Cependant l'apprentissage est bon, les formations intéressantes.

It’s such a shame that to enjoy working for this company is all dependent on how the management run the store. In this case, the current store manager is a joke. nothing taken seriously, can’t even pay you correctly which considering you’re risking your family’s health working through a pandemic is awful and obvious discrimination based on who they like or dislike. One rule for one and a different for another. Such a shame as the rest of the managers and staff are absolutely lovely and are willing to help you out. However, it’s a tough job especially being expected to stay till ridiculous times after you’ve technically finished purely to pick up a bit of cardboard off the floor
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Management, don’t pay correctly, discriminatory

Don't be fooled by a decent hourly rate.

This is a disgraceful company to work for. Favouratism within management is not uncommon, hours and pay are not consistent or reliable, quite often I was accused of being dishonest and lying about any sickness (during a time like this, can you believe that), not just me but my colleagues also.

Pros
Above average wage but other places offer the same/more. Might meet some decent people.
Cons
Favouritism within management, constantly under contracted hours, frequently accused of lying due to paranoid management (more common than you'd think)

Wouldn't recommend working here - pay was rubbish and they are unwilling to liaise with holidays etc.
Work colleagues were nice and friendly - however it was under poor management at the time.

Its a terrible place to work. Borderline slavery.
Management don't fight your corner.

The rota is unbelievable you will never finish at the time its says.

Scrutiny by Management makes you feel uncomfortable.

No work and family life balance at all.

A lot of empty promises.
Pros
10% discount card
Cons
Management, shifts, rota, family balance, learning the job role and help.

Awful place to work, unreasonable amounts of work and if you make the mistake of being efficient, you get no thanks, only more work piled on because "your able" whilst lazy colleagues get rewarded. All the while your slaving away, your constantly under the threat of your job if you dont conform to every whim of the bully boy manager who will call and harass you day and night
Pros
Decent salary for retail
Cons
Everything. Its a job for when your desperate

Lidl is the worst company I ever worked. Managment are terrible, they care only about their bonuses and targets, which are super high, also no safety at all. They don't care about people, company is inflexible in all the ways. The job is very hard and pay rate is pretty low. I could say only bad things about lidl and can't any good, not one at least. If you are looking for job, avoid lidl, this is my advice.
Pros
None
Cons
Plenty

Do not work here!
You will be shouted at!

You will be a number!

Your back will hurt!

Pay £9.30 and pick rate is 190 cases per hour! And they plan more. So imagine 24 pack beer box is 1. Good luck to keep up for 7.5 hour shift.

Most people get probation extended duo to low KPI.

You can climb ladder if you know somebody on top.

Overtime paid at same rate of £9.30

You will have 30 min unpaid break that you have to clock out and then clock in.

You clock out in the warehouse and walk up 56 stairs to get to the canteen. 2 - 3 minutes one way and also same to go back. You'll waste around 6 minutes of break only to go to canteen and back if you're fit.

If you smoke, then quit eating. You will go 56 stairs up and walk through all building, then go down 56 stairs and then walk around 500ft or 150 meters to smoking shelter. It will take you around 10 MINUTES ONE WAY.

Managers paid crazy money in compare to mortal people. Also gets brand new company BMW. So they don't care about you at all.

In terms of safety, it's more safe to wild camp in Peterborough Lincoln road at night than work here.

ROTA is a joke. You never know how you will work.

They allways change it. You can work 8 or 9 days in the row and get one day off.

If you drive FLT you will get same pay of £9.30.
Pros
10% discount in lidl
Cons
Everything else, trust me.

No work life balance, managers seem to forget that people have a life outside of work, you work on a 3 week rota which is always changing so really hard to plan anything
Pros
pay is good and increases twice a year
Cons
long hours, no work life balance
