The hours could be better but I don't mind hard work

There is no rota for the shop assistants. The shop assistants are the most servile in the Lidl hierarchy. Lidl's shop assistants are [unofficially] on-call 24/7. An absence request made to your Store Manager will evoke a response similar to Oliver Twist asking for more.
In short: You will work when told. You may only have 2 hours this month; or you may have 2,000. Either way, you will work every minute of those hours, including the mandatory minimum four-hour daily unpaid overtime.

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!

Minimum of eight hours most likely to be ten.... Only half hour break plz remember this all management will tell you that you ca take 60 mins and they will definitely do it but all shift managers will tell you that you don't need it and it's better not to do it as you will appreciate your break more,........ Gotta love the training mentors 😂

Depends on your position and business requirements. Usually, they can work something out to benefit both parties.
