    Good and clear progression well trained Well equiped for roll Nice people Learnt alot of wider business and how it operates

    Cons

    Customers !! - no control over this one Long hours a lot expected from you Dont allow mistakes Profound hierarchy Hard H.R.M policies

    Advice to Management

    The people who are in senior management roles abuse power, dissolve the barriers between seniority and treat everyone contribution equally. Re think H.R.M policies as they assume the worker is unmotivated and do not like the job. Instead focus on how you could make the working environment a better place for everyone

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Customer Assistant in Donegal

    I worked at Lidl full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay well Friendly team Chance of progression

    Cons

    Long hours at till, zero variety especially for new staff Called last minute on days off to come into work and being made feel bad if you don't A lot of favouritism to certain employees who get all the morning shifts, not evenly divided out Clinical depressing environment, no mental stimulation, background music would be an extreme addition to Lidl stores and make it feel more like a shop and less like a factory. No work life balance at all Staff are just a number, everything comes down to meeting targets.

    Advice to Management

    Do Rota fairly and divide late and early shifts out more evenly Provide better training so all staff can do all jobs throughout store

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Lidl full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great pay can be fun if you're working with the right people

    Cons

    long hours mostly close shifts no support from higher management low motivation from staff Most staff don't feel appreciated No real training

    Advice to Management

    Lidl needs to take a step back and start treating their staff better. As a company all levels of staff need to feel more appreciated as their lack of compassion is making life in Lidl hard and makes people feel demotivated. If the company doesn't care about its staff it makes it very hard for store managers to be accommodating.
