Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Lidl full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fast paced company to get experience on problem solving not only with customers but with employees, time management, goal setting and obviously the achievement of those goals.

Cons

You have to deal with the shoplifters with no protection at all most of the time, sueing and going to court on your own where you faced shoplifters.
Diary Work load demanded by company never can be completed so it creates a certain unconfident feeling

Advice to Management

Investment in continuous staff training at all the levels
Let a security company or someone asing to it to deal with shoplifters
