Worst company ever
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  North Side. CORK11 December 2017
No work life balance
No shift rotation including weekends therefore no life.

Management are on another level talking down to employees.

If your not management you wont be involved in anything, even conversations.

You would work a 10 hour shift and after starting your shift an hour later you are sent on break leaving you 8 to 9 hours without a break and food.

Higher management do not care no point in complaining.

Constantly breaking legal requirements eg. an 11 to 12 hour gap between shifts.

Often found myself working 10 days in a row.

Do not dare ask a question as you will recieve abuse.

No training given to new staff.

Building and moving tables, shelves, heavy items and stock in and of warehouses and freezers etc. That could be twice the average persons bodyweight. No health and safety.

My first 3 months were ok my last 9 to 10 months were a nightmare.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, Bad management, No shift rotation, awful treatment by management, no life at all I never seen my kid or partner, No consideration for staff, all around bad place to work

Horrible
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Tipperary30 September 2017
I worked for LIDL and here are my observations:

Little to no relevant training is provided!

Everything is rushed from the day you start and it does not matter to management that you are new to the job, you are expected to be the same speed at everything as the people in the job ten years.

In the store I worked the management style was laissez faire; little to no direction or communication. One of the worst managers I have ever worked for or observed in any field!

I found that people working in the job had become robots who could only converse about LIDL life and not about much else. I guess that is the effect of such a regimented workplace!
Pros
Its a job
Cons
Monthly pay, unsociable hours, horrible culture
