I worked as an SOM for 4months and it's the worst job I have ever had. Employees for the most part hate working there and are only there for the money which creates a very poor working environment. Money is the only good thing although when you work out the hourly pay for an SOM it's only €13.73 an hour on account of the crazy hours at €50,000 per annum. Obviously this is the starting wage and your Salary increases if you can stick it which most don't. I would advise to stay away!!
Pros
Good Salary.
Cons
Insane hours, poor working atmosphere, bad executive management.

A challenging job in retail due as you do quite a bit of everything from operating checkouts to stocking shelves and to be done within certain speeds but I learned a lot about the importance of teamwork and communication throughout my time.Enjoyed working there, learned a lot of new skills.I learned a lot working in Lidl as they train you on all aspects of the store including cash handling, baking, cleaning, stock take, inventory , dealing with customers and working as a member of a driven team.Its time to move. Unfortunately often got phone calls from management to come to work on days off every week and if I had other plans and refused hours would be cut the week after to advance in this company, often had no breaks in a shift this including a 12 hour shift.No time for private live.!! Lidl breach Health and Safety Regulation regarding to employee and his/her ergonomic friendly place to work.
Pros
Good Salary Pension Plan Medical Insurance
Cons
No Life Balance

Lidl is a great place to work if you are driven and hardworking. I learned a lot working in Lidl as they train you on all aspects of the store including cash handling, baking, cleaning, stock take, inventory , dealing with customers and working as a member of a driven team. Management are very good but they expect a lot. The salary is very good but you work very hard for it.
Pros
Progression
Cons
Long Work Hours

Culture is very productivity focused which goes beyond a high performing team. Those that are high performers are the bench mark for the average rather than seen as an over achiever. High customer service and high productivity also do not go together. Career progression and advancement is definitely a huge part of Lidl and any employee who is Career hungry and wants to progress can easily do so. A lot of training is provided however embedment of training could be improved. Salary and benefits are exemplary and employees are well taken care of in that respect. Hardest part of the job was dealing with senior managers who were not personable. Most enjoyable part was seeing employees achieve their goals.
Pros
Salary, Benefits, colleagues, professional exposure, career progression
Cons
Long hours, expectations, lack of people awareness

Pros
kept busy, working constantly, pay scale.
Cons
low hours, being called in on days off.

Mi experiencia en Lidl Irlanda fue gratificante en muchos aspectos. En primer lugar fue sorprendentemente fácil conseguir el trabajo pese a que no poseía experiencia previa en el sector de la alimentación y a que el inglés no es mi lengua materna aunque lo manejo con soltura. Desde el principio se preocuparon en enseñarme todos los aspectos de cada uno de los departamentos en tienda, desde la reposición, a la panadería, cartelería, marketing del supermercado, etc... hasta el manejo de caja donde finalmente fue donde más tiempo pasé. La relación con los jefes/encargados fue muy fluida, siempre con voluntad de cooperación y nunca sentí que fueran distantes ni que me trataran con superioridad. Con el resto del equipo también había buen ambiente ya que eso era lo que hacía que el trabajo saliera bien en el tiempo estipulado, ya que está cadena alemana trabaja bajo objetivos de eficiencia. Quizás lo más díficil al principio fue adaptarme al sistema de trabajo europeo que me resultó bastante diferente al español pero eso a la misma vez lo encontré realmente positivo y enriquecedor. Lo que más me gustó fue trabajar en un ambiente internacional, aprender otra profesión y la cultura del derecho y el deber del trabajador que se respetaba y convivían perfectamente.
Pros
Horas extras pagadas, seguro médico, promoción interna, estabilidad laboral, formación
Cons
presión por cumplir los objetivos de tiempo y eficiencia

The job can be very stressfull and requires you to give 110% at all time and make sure all staff are giving as much. There is a procedure for everything and this can help you to complete all jobs efficiently and can also make doing jobs a bit difficult as all boxes need to be ticked and the job needs to be completed 100%
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Long Hours, Stressfull

I used to work as a shop assistant in Lidl (Togher) in the past until I was transferred to Lidl in Ballincollig where my position of a shop assistant was promoted to a trainee manager. Lidl has given me experiences in how to work in team, manage many tasks at the same time and how to cope with stress in stressful situations. My work experiences enabled me to work as a team player which gave me knowledge of what a good team player should be like. I also learn, that the completion of work task does not only consist in hard work but also in mutual understanding and helping – these are the main key factors that facilitate the work done efficiently and thoroughly.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Long hours
