I worked at Lidl full-time for more than a year

Pros

worked with a good team. Reasonable pay (but on the con sie, you really do have to work for it!)

Cons

hard work. lots of unpaid overtime. sucks if you're working a close as you can't leave until the store is tidy, some days doesn't take long but on a busy day you can be there 2 hours later, particularly if there are specials to put out. When i worked there inventory evry 6ish weeks was done manually, cue late nights (11pm) and early mornings (5am) to count up the stock by hand. This may have changed by now though!

    I have been working at Lidl

    Pros

    If you want to get into the world of retail as a newcomer it is fine, since processes are very simple.

    Cons

    Since the business model is quite successful, longer serving staff relate this success to themselves. New staff is treated not very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide that your middle management is actually working. Try to make sure that not 80 % of working time are burned by performing political games.
