Tough work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Fast paced, heavy lifting

Very good if long hours are needed but monthly pay is the worst part about it. I would recommend it as a long term job but make sure you have a good savings scheme.

Pros

Lots of overtime available

Cons

Monthly pay

Slave job

Bad hours you'll be kept on the back shift for a very long time and mostly on one section there is no rotation at all which is stupid.There is not enough pickers so sometimes you might even do 14 hour shift finish at 2-3 at night and tht might continue for the whole week when business is bussy.

Okay ish

Great culture and fun between colleagues. Working hours were a bit ridiculous, i.e. 1pm-11pm but sometimes you suddenly get asked (an hour prior to the end of your shift) go up to 1 am or even 3 am during Xmas period. Decent pay when compared to similar companies

Horrible place to work

Absolute joke company worked in the Mullingar warehouse for 3 and a half years and the best thing I ever did was leave No concept of people caring more about there life outside of lidl the company has to come first Money is good if your prepared to work at weekends at night and do 50 hour weeks Your told you can progress that s nonsense Back breaking labour with no standard of health and safety you are looked at as a number and you will be flogged until you can't work anymore Ridiculously underqualified supervisors who have no concept of what there supervising bit will then criticise performance when you might see them for 5 mins a week overall disgrace of a company and no amount of money would get me too work there again

Work life not balance

Working time is not fixed and variable due to the company. Required high performances in a bad working environment. Which is stay whole day in a chiller or whole day picking heavy stuff. Good muscle and back needed, u have to bend down your body everytime to pick up the goods and they don't care about your work safety.

Slave job - good looking on the outside total garbage on inside !

Not for people with family. Very rude managers and bully supervisors . Even if you hit the target you will never be good enough . Very unsafe place to work ! Safety is only on the papper in reality they will sqeez all the juice out of you no matter what . It is a lie company . Vages .... People who work there for over 5 years and moren even they don't understand how vages ar calculated . What you get is 1 payment a month for last 2 months . You will also get a payslip with tons of useless info on it that will only confuse you . If you will ring payroll for extra info/explanation about your wages then answer always is the same - basicaly they say that you are stupid and everything is correct ! Most people who work there are unhappy with the way Lidl represents payslips and how vages are calculated but it is pointles to argue ! If you like to be treated like a slave then you will love this place !

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

The worst nightmare that you could dream about

Success of this company is based on a lie. You can't ask for anything but if you try then be prepared to meet a wall. This is perfect job only for young physically fit people without kids or even partner. Really easy to get injured when working especially in fruit & veg dept. Loads of straps, pallets, pieces of broken palles on the floor. If You will hit their targets they gonna always ask for more and more. Maybe stores is a different place.. Management cares only about numbers. You must ask even before goin to the toilet. And the last thing is You work really fast then You can get like 6 hours if not they will make a problems even to work those contracted ones.

Concentration camp

Worst mistake of my life taking this job. Starting at 1 pm and not allowed leave till everything is done which usually was 1 or 2am. Ideal job for someone who has no life, no partner and definitely no kids. A robot basically.
