Pros

Responsibility comes thick and fast. The opportunities afforded to those who can hack the pace and deliver results are unparalleled.

Cons

This was a sink or swim environment. More focus on training and development would have facilitated a better return on the pool of talent in the business.

    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
