    And the money when I’ve worked a lot of hours

    Lidl Employee, June 2022

  • Best thing

    colleagues. Not a difficult job. Customers.

    Worst thing

    Customers. Don't get the shifts you want most of the time. Managers don't seem to care about how you get home after a shift, only how you get to the shift. Have to book 80% of holidays way in advance. Stressful.
