Fast paced workplace
Duty Manager/cashier (Former Employee) –  Weston-super-Mare12 January 2018
Working for Lidl is a great job if you like to be on the go all the time. The fun never stops, it is not a typical cashier job where you only serve customers, when not serving there is always something else to do. Great employers, always treated me well.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Very physcal job

productive
Duty Manager (Current Employee) –  Inverurie, Aberdeenshire18 November 2017
Fast paced and everything is worked around being productive within the store. Stores are run by a store manager and then an assistant store manager. You can have as many duty managers within your store as you like .All staff is part time and you have to be flexible with your work hours as its open 7 days a week.

Company focuses on productivity. To make targets and force staff to work long hours. No balance. Early starts. And late nights. Customer service is no longer a priority. Till speeds are always checked and have long queues.
Cons
Long hours

Hard working and great company
Duty Manager (Former Employee) –  Torquay, Devon28 August 2017
Learnt an awful lot within Lidl, Started at the bottom and made my way up. Learnt Ordering, dealing with deliveries, customer service, money management, working under pressure, communication with staff and customers.
The most rewarding part of the job was to satisfy other people.
Pros
Pension scheme, Always something to work towards within company
Cons
Long days

slightly above average pay but long hours
duty manager (Current Employee) –  Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire22 August 2017
Good company to work for part time as they are very flexible however full time employment will lead to a poor work life balance. Job satisfaction is very often dependent upon the management at the time. The company offer very little in the way of benefits.
Pros
flexible if part time
Cons
long hours and poor benefits

Blood, Sweat and Not Enough time
Duty Manager (Former Employee) –  Pollokshaws11 August 2017
Starting at 5am and running about pulling pallets and getting delivery out the before the store opened at 8am
learning all the time but how to manage time and staff and deliveries
Management in the store i worked in where not great as they would leave things for you to do and if you didnt get through it all they would be on your case all day
the hardest part of the job starting very early in the morning and not knowing when your are finishing
the most enjoyable part of this job was the constant learning and getting my personal licence for alcohol sales
Pros
good rate of pay and flexable working pattern
Cons
not enough time to finish tasks set

Pros

Work hard and you will be rewarded
Duty Manager (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire5 June 2017
hard role physically demanding in some aspects. Everything is done on how well your store is run depends on how many hours your store gets for staffing, however they still expect the jobs and check lists to be done. Tough work under pressure to deliver results
