Good place to work. Good pay, nice peoples. If you work and mind your own bussines everything is ok. It is the best warehouse i worked. Do not listen peoples that say it is a bad place ( if you are lazy , all the places you work are not good ).

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Long hours

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!

Expect to much from the individuals that are working there.

It has to be by far the worse place I have ever worked. The managers do not give a care about your well being. All they want is production, fast pace, no proper breaks, get Complaints from your DLM for not picking up the pace even if you getting the products out on time! I was doing over 2500 picks a day and this wasn’t sufficient for them. They just want more and more out of you. They just can not hold employees because of the high tensity of pressure you get from your “DLM” as they call themselves. It’s a disgrace.

Pros

None

Stay away

Horrible place to work. Terrible.management. only way to describe it is a revolving door system. Ten minute training and away you go. It's all about egos with the management

busy environment

Typical day at work is very monotony, specially if you have to only picking products for 8-10 hours, and if you work hard supervisors give you more hard work. Advise- don't show them you are very hard worker from first day, beacause they will use you, think about your health ( even if you are strong, after few months picking, problems with back will start).

Pros

free coffee and tea, free fruits

Cons

don't pay for breaks

Awful work environment

Do yourself a favour and apply for a different job. I can't understand how people keep saying that the pay is good, when any Job would have good pay if you are in there 10 hours a day. You don't get paid for breaks, so if you want to get yourself a decent wage be prepared to do 11/12 hours of hard work 6 days a week. Also be prepared for the most complicated pay structure when you start. First month is only contract hours, so for a full month work you get 800euro. Absolute joke

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours/no h+s

Worst place I've ever worked

Great job if you are willing to make your live a Lidl life. Spent more time in that kip over Christmas than I did at home with my family. They will work you like a dog if you are new because all the employees with contracts are lazy and can't be fired apparently. You will be told to pick 250 boxes an hour which is against h+s manual handling forget about it. There is fruit pallets in there that are over 6 ft in height and you have to pick them which means lifting above shoulder height. Managers are on a power trip and don't care about you but they have these "team talks" and other rubbish to make you think they care. Terrible place to work .. monthly pay and your first month you will only be paid for 20 hour weeks after doing a full month in hand

Pros

Good canteen, most colleagues are nice

Cons

Long hours, always being guilt tripped into overtime, managers haven't a clue
