Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Poole – 5 June 2018
Can be very hard work, some days can be good, some days can be bad, every day is different.. you’re expected to work no matter how many pallets you have in the same amount of time.. targets are unrealistic with the hours given, some staff are expected to do everything with minimal breaks
Pay for store assistants
Unrealistic targets, management working to much . Breaks and work life balance
Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Blantyre, South Lanarkshire – 3 June 2018
It's a good place to work if you thrive on fast paced environment and pressure. The pay is good as are the holidays. I did however watch people do 16 hour shifts with only a half hour break because of the pressures that they were put under. I learned how to work under stress and produce the work that was expected of me. The hardest part of the job was dealing with deadlines that were impossible to meet. The best part was getting your pay at the end of the month.
If you are a graduate and passionate about retail, this is everything you are looking for.
Duty Manager (Current Employee) – Glasgow – 31 May 2018
Excellent place to work, particularly at Head Office in London and down south. Lots of autonomy, responsibility and endless opportunities to work in a variety of positions and countries.
Left because retail is not my thing and I want to pursue my dream career in software development. At Lidl, you will work long hours and the job consumes much of your time so make sure you are passionate about retail and business management. If you are, then this is the perfect opportunity for you!
excellent salary, progression, opportunities, pension scheme, company car.
Long hours, some positions have poor work-life balance.
General store assistant (Former Employee) – Bath – 6 May 2018
Lidl is a very fast paced working environment, you are expected to work at these standards. You get very good pay for retail and a lot of holiday. The balance of work and normal life is not good at all, expect to work extremely early and late every weekend and have unsociable shifts. There is never any variety in what you do, most 10 hour shifts will be spent sat on a till with just one allocated 30 minute break.
Priduction Team Manager (Former Employee) – Wimbledon, Greater London – 2 May 2018
Expect to do what would be 3 jobs of work squeezed into one person and paid for one person. After years of being given more and more to do I'm leaving and a credit it to its over arching culture in the business.
Would not recommend management with this company unless you live to work.
assistant Manager (Former Employee) – North West – 19 April 2018
Unsociable hrs, 50 hrs plus per wk and expected to do extra. Pay not good when you actually work out your hrly rate. Regularly working through breaks. Rotas two wks in advance when should be three. Lack of communication, team spirit and team development. Management rule with a tell approach.
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 17 April 2018
Expected to work silly shift patterns with no regard for family or social life. Over worked In a repeatative mind numbing job Get stuck on tills most of your shift with a poxy 30min break. Told to work at a stupid fast pace, with most managers moaning about staff Keep moving staff around to other stores which can create a unstable environment.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Nottinghamshire – 16 April 2018
Decent pay but really rubbish hours unless you book holidays off weeks and weeks in advance. Also you get really frowned upon if you ring in sick and the management can be really unorganised and immature.
long hours, really difficult to book time off, favouritsm
