Deputy Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lidl (Raleigh, NC) in August 2016.

Interview

I was invited to a hiring event in Raleigh,NC,which consisted of 30-40 candidates.
After lunch,we went back to our tables and a Lidl employee asked us to stand if our name was called and to gather all our belongings. Everyone in the room knew this meant Lidl was ending the interview process with the people whose names were called.
If your name was called,you had to stand at your table until all the names were called,then line up and leave the room.
This is an embarrassing and degrading method of telling a job candidate and future potential customer that you are not interested in hiring him.her!
I find this practice absurd!
My friends and family actually thought I was joking when I explained what happened during this event!
Needless to say, I definitely won't be doing my shopping at any Lidl stores.

    Deputy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lutterworth, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lidl (Lutterworth, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Small first stage group interview with 3 applicants including myself based at Lutterworth RDC at Magna Park.
    The hiring process began by introducing ourselves to the district manager and sales operations manager who then in turn introduced themselves and gave a brief background on their role within the company etc.
    Once we had all settled in, they continued by starting a PowerPoint presentation based on Lidl as a company and what to expect as a member of the Lidl team.
    To get the ball rolling, the district manager asked the three of us what we knew about the company and the role itself. (This is a good chance for you to stand out from the rest of the candidates if you have bothered to do any research in advance!)
    The company presentation lasted for around 25 minutes with no group activities or numeracy/literacy tests.
    After a 5 minute break we were then called into a separate room one at a time for a very brief 5-10 minute interview with the same guys that did the presentation. There were no interview questions whatsoever, they just simply hand you a copy of your CV and ask you to talk them through it. Job history, education, work duties etc.
    The whole process lasted a little over 1 hour with little to no pressure. If I am called back for a second stage interview, I'm sure that it will be much more thorough and detailed.

    Negotiation

    Be aware that salaries ARE negotiable for this position and they will ask you for a figure that you are expecting within reason. £19k-£24k. If you are asking for the top end towards £24k, don't forget that you will have to justify your reasoning as to why they shouldn't start you off on £19k.
