Rewarding salary/wages but you need to commit

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You need to have a strong backbone to work in Lidl as it can get stressful easily. This job will help you mature and realise your potential. The hours can be long but what you give is what you get. They can be very forgiving with needed days off or shift changes but you also need to hold up your end of the deal.

Pros

Great salary and flexibility

Cons

Long hours and short staffing

A decent wage, very fast paced sometimes

Decent management but stressed too as it can be very busy at times, the busier the shop the more hours can be given to staff so there are lots of opportunities to work extra in busy shops.

Pros

Loads of extra hours if busy shop

Cons

long hours, always tired but at least paid well if you do extra work

Pros

Room for growth and excellent training Good salary overall for new starters Opportunity for overtime

Cons

Shift work can be tough for work-life balance

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.

You control your development

Working in Lidl has given me the opportunity to grow and develop. As long as I want to keep growing, Lidl provides me with the opportunity. Work hard and you get rewarded.

Pros

2 days working from home, free parking, on site gym, very modern office and plenty of freebies all the time!

Cons

If you dont like working hard this isnt for you.

Fun workplace but not worth the hustle.

I liked working there, but you need to like long hours, I would not recommend it to a friend, but if you really need a job then they pay not that bad.

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

Fast paced

You really earn that extra few quid an hour. Once you get used to the fast paced environment, and accept that each day will be all go the whoole time, you will learn to enjoy it and make the most out of the benefits.

Terrible management

Company filled with nepotism with extremely unrealistic expectations from the workers. The pay is good for retail,but the hours are low especialy if you are not good with the countless mini klans among workers. The customers are always rude so are the managers. Overall a toxic environment. Would not reccomend unless you have no other choice.

Pros

Pay per hour

Cons

Literaly everything else

Lidl motto: we pay so we own You..... zero respect.

If for better money You willing give up Your private life for work and You don't mind if they will treat You like garbage then You should be happy there. And be sure that You have strong back because this work is psychically extremely demanding

Pros

Salary.

Cons

Rest

Very fast faced

Very fast place to work, not much of a work culture, feel like you work alone as you don’t ever talk to anyone, the hours are long and hard at times, but management are nice and will give you time off for occasions when you need it

Pros

More than minimum pay

Cons

Long hours, monthly pay
Was this review helpful?

Intense and long hours

Not for the faint hearted, early morning starts, very long hours and you're gonna be getting a phone call on your day off to come in or help another store. Play ball with them and you could potentially be rewarded but you will have to stick with the company for a long time til you see any benefits.

Pros

Best paying retailer

Cons

Long hours, never a weekend off, sometimes work 9-13 days in a row

Is ok

Ok place to work, all depends which RDC you work for.Xmass €50 Lidl gift card bonus is a joke.2 month's xmass songs nonstop, drives staff crazy.Depends on your store Manager - you might forget about weekend's. Plan your days of month in advance

Pros

Good pay, friendly staff

Cons

Xmass songs for 2 month's nonstop. Takes to long to fix a issues with the building

Good team work

Kind of stressful and a lot of customers are rude. Also a lot of stealing and robbing in shop sometimes. It’s good money for retail industry but not a good for permanent job for me. Head office always try to cut your hours and don’t know how busy is the shop and we spend a lot of time of catching shoplifting and crazy customers.

Pros

Not too bad pay and nice coworkers

Cons

Long hour

Fast pace, excellent salary.

Paid well for basic work on the floor, management is more stressful but the salary exceeds what other retailers pay for similar work. Overall a great company to work for.

Pros

Wages, different benefits, appreciation for hard work

Cons

Sometimes long hours, hard work
