What people are saying about sick pay at Lidl

  • Best thing

    The pay

    Worst thing

    Doing two jobs at the same time
    Hard to get time off
    Sometimes not given breaks on long shifts
    Management are rude


    Lidl Customer assistant, February 2023

  • Best thing

    10% discount

    Worst thing

    Stressed, good work goes unrecognised, but something small done wrong is instantly pulled up.
    Managers don't always get to take breaks but still have to input they had a break. So they don't get paid for 15/30mins work they've actually done.
    Abuse from customers- shop lifters etc.
    Shifts changed last minute

    Well nothing is good at my job only the staff and the pay!

    Early morning starts (5am), never get breaks in time, freezing cold temperatures all around the store, heavy manual work.
