    I have been working at Lidl full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Excellent Benefits, International Company

    Cons

    Inconsistent Management, Toxic Culture, inconsistent supply chain

    Advice to Management

    Hold your operational executives and district managers accountable. I've been here for two years and am genuinely disgusted by the number of times I've seen incompetent management rewarded with lateral transfers to HQ. Likewise, I've seen store level management "promote" an employee only to work them for months in their position before submitting their paperwork, blaming slow HR processes for the lag in pay. Of... course, back pay was never given.

    I worked at Lidl part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay for responsibilities given Petty cash management experience Good entry level position to understand ground-level management of inventory and assets

    Cons

    Upper level management changes constantly Demands exceed available time for completion, especially when re-merchandising Physically intensive in varying temperatures (-7 deg in the freezer) Other members of team can impact inventory negatively without repercussion
