What employees are saying about Lidl
Always plenty of work, so shifts don't drag.
Great team in my store. Can have a laugh while still getting the job done.
Plenty of variety for work needing done during the day.
Late finishes on middle isle nights, eg start 1pm or 2pm on Wednesday, finish anywhere between 11pm and 2am depending on the amount of items to go out that night.
Not a great work life balance.
Unrealistic time frames for completing certain tasks.
Lidls till closing procedure is the biggest fail I've ever seen in retail. After all these years customers still have no idea the red light means the till is closing, you will be constantly shouting sorry this till is closed, to the customers anger. If only something like a till closed sign you set at the end of the till could solve this, eh?
Employee, May 2021
Strangely enough the customers and the people I work with. Seeing the same faces each day feels rewarding when they're happy to see you.
The hours are long and managers expect you to do multiple jobs in a short time frame. Very fast paced.
Employee, September 2021
Pay seems ok
Physical work load, heavy lifting and carrying strain on body very high and no support from management
Employee, July 2021
The team I work with.
The flexibility expected of me to work any hours between 6am and 11pm
