Regional managers behave like they are Gods and do not speak to lower level staff. Unbelievably a bullying culture still exists!!
Great staff in store and indeed all stores but unfortunately that’s where the good story ends! Senior management have not embraced the ‘engaged workforce’ philosophy and unbelievably in these times still behave appallingly and disrespectfully.

Recommended company for retail career
Excellent company for internally training their staff. Hours can be long when in management but well worth it. Highly pressurised at times but like any retail job this passes.

Productive workplace
I was working in company for 9 years and got different experience in company working in different stores, education and different positions. In Lidl they have strong management which have to meet their KPIs every week, these leads to increased performance and competitive salaries. Its a big teamwork with good atmosphere at work. Management supports you in different aspects in your life, including training, education, preferable working shifts and career opportuinities.

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

Robotic
Very hard work, management stick where they are with not much movement so only able to progress when they decide to leave. Pays very well for both staff and management but work life balance suffers because of it.

Had many great years until change in the board
An amazing 12years, until the board of Directors, changed. A case of if your face doesn't fit move on. Having spent many happy years with the company the team managing the overall business changed and caused havoc for many of the existing team who had dedicated many years to the growth and development of the company. When management run the business with the sole purpose of making themselves look good at the expense of others it is time to pull out and move on. Sneaky, underhanded tactics were used consistently to demotivate and undermine any of the activities that had been implemented over previous years, many of which had been extremely successful. Still have a very positive attitude towards the business as a whole, however, the current reputation gained by the current Irish Board says it all!!!

Always kept busy
Worked in Lidl for about a year, your always kept busy time goes really fast. Management were really nice and hardworking. Only thing was the hours, either having to work too early or too late, mostly at Christmas and summer.

Customer Assistant
Only good thing about this company is the wages but you work for every penny that you earn as nothing is easy about working here. You have no life outside of lidl as your called in all the time for extra shifts to cover people. Managers could do with some basic training on how to actually treat their staff with some respect rather than treat them like the dirt on their shoes. Being tore to shreds for simple errors and never praised. Mental bullying at its finest

Customer focused hands on operation
Spent 5 years as a manager with Lidl. The job was never boring and days were long but time passed very quickly. The job was straight forward and the lidl systems were easy to follow and implement. Staff recruitment was difficult at times and the staff turnover was quite high as was staff absenteeism. The salary was good and morale was good amongst staff and management as you were working with small teams. On the negative side , experienced managers had to put up with 2 to 3 visits a week from very inexperienced area managers some of whom had never stepped foot in a retail store prior to joining Lidl. Some of these area managers would make demands and to do lists which couldn't have been done with 20 staff never mind 5 staff . Apart from some of the area managers it was a good experience.
Pros
Salary, systems
Cons
Inexperienced area managers with no concept of how to help and motivate staff and management.

Untrustworthy management culture
Untrustworthy management culture. Work/life balance is non existent. Staff members constantly walking on eggshells. Main objective is to reach unrealistic targets at all costs. Employees come second.

Stay away
Very long hours and you are expected to work with the same place throughout your shift. Constantly under stress because that is the way they operate. Very high staff turnover because of that.
Pros
None
Cons
Just name it
