    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lidl (Wimbledon, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I was invited to a 2-stage interview process. The first round was a group interview with 2 other interviewees. After introducing ourselves and learning more about the role from interviewers we were asked to do a test (numeracy, attention to detail and Lidl questions), while the first person went straight to the personal interview. When it is your turn to be interviewed, you leave your test and return to it after the ca. 20 minute long interview. Questions included: Why Lidl, why food industry, suitability for the role, strength & weakness The second interview was with the Senior Promotions Manager and questions were pretty much the same.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Lidl.

    Interview

    A recruitment agency was used for this role so first was a phone call and questions to see if you fit the role. At the first interview, there was a general presentation about the company, then the chance to mingle with members of the team and 1:1 interviews with a manager from this department. At final interviews, you faced questions from a panel, did some role plays and completed a maths test.

    Easy Interview

The next day I received an email with a date for a telephone interview, I had to call and confirm a date and time with them. The telephone interview was set for 4 days later, the questions included: why lidl? what do you know about the company? what skills do you have? why should lidl hire you? what is your definition of great customer service? Apart from this we discussed a little about my CV previous employment and why I left. Overall I feel the telephone interview went great, the lady on the phone sounded very friendly and welcoming. I then received an email the very next day for an interview in store. Will update with an another review once interviewed.

    Team Secretary Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lidl (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a board director and an HR assistant Manager. I was welcomed warmly and the interview started with a 10 minute conversation about the company and just some general stuff which broke the ice. Fairly standard interview starting with "tell us about youself" and "why should we hire you" No suprise or trick questions. The interview took 1 hour 20 min but I got a bad vibe o the interviewers as I mentioned that I'm looking for a position with an employer that offers internal career opportunities. Basically they thought I'm not applying for this position for the long run.
