Hi,
I'm thinking of applying to Lidl, but wondering if they'd be willing to offer me part-time hours and shifts on days that I'm available ( I have young kids and limited childcare options ).
Basically, my question is how flexible they can be and consider that I can only work 2 days a week, and those differ from week to week.
Many thanks!

You must be out of your tiny mind. Once you accept the position, you belong to Lidl. You will work any hour and day that your Store Manager sees fit, and you'll work four hours unpaid overtime on top of each shift. If your Store Manager calls you at 04:55 and demands you come in for 05:00, well, you'd better get your undercracks on and get sprinting out that door, or you'll face disciplinary!
