Wird viel zu hoch gepriesen
Verkäuferin im Einzelhandel (Former Employee) –  Uetze22 October 2019
Man wird in den Himmel gelobt und hinterrücks wird gelästert. Jeder gegen jeden. Die Filialleiter sind faul. Egal was man tut es ist nicht gut genug. Also bei Aldi war es, trotz mehr Stress, angenehmer zu arbeiten.
Macht selbst eure Erfahrungen aber Spaß hat man bei Lidl keinen.

Too stressful
Store Assistant (Part-time) (Current Employee) –  Huddersfield, West Yorkshire22 October 2019
We were understaffed and timed in all things, make a mistake however small and you were told about it, all the while, working to tight timescales meant you never got chance to take a breath.

Ambiente di lavoro fondato sul 'terrore'
Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Pontedera, Toscana22 October 2019
Peccato che lavorarci non rispecchia minimamente l'ambiente bello e di coinvolgimento che traspare dalla pubblicità televisiva.
Non è oro quello che luccica! Clima terribile, nessun rapporto umano con i superiori statene alla larga.

Fuyez.
Chef caisse (Former Employee) –  France21 October 2019
Entreprise qui cherche à faire bonne figure et qui été plutôt en bonne voix jusqu'à cette année. Après 7ans de bons et loyaux services, l'ambiance au sein des magasins s'est tellement dégradé que j'ai décidé de démissionner..
Rivalité entre magasins, coup bas de la part des supérieurs pour sauver leurs fesses, délégués du personnel qui ne font rien malgré les appels à l'aide des équipes face à la surcharge de travail et à la pression subit quotidiennement. D'innombrables personnes sont passé par mon (ancien) magasin et ne sont pas resté. Aujourd'hui je laisse la place bien volontiers, le stress permanent n'est plus pour moi.
Le salaire n'est avantageux qu'après quelques années d'ancienneté et finalement n'est pas faramineux comparé à la charge de travail et à la pression quotidienne.

Had many great years until change in the board
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Ireland21 October 2019
An amazing 12years, until the board of Directors, changed. A case of if your face doesn't fit move on. Having spent many happy years with the company the team managing the overall business changed and caused havoc for many of the existing team who had dedicated many years to the growth and development of the company. When management run the business with the sole purpose of making themselves look good at the expense of others it is time to pull out and move on. Sneaky, underhanded tactics were used consistently to demotivate and undermine any of the activities that had been implemented over previous years, many of which had been extremely successful. Still have a very positive attitude towards the business as a whole, however, the current reputation gained by the current Irish Board says it all!!!

Okay place if you enjoy working hard.
Warehouse Operative/Picker (Former Employee) –  Lutterworth, Leicestershire21 October 2019
Working in the warehouse. As a Female I came across a lot of harassment from a lot of workers. Most of them are not British. One of them kept touching me, another somehow managed to get a hold of my number and kept ringing and texting. Hr and management did nothing.

Most days, they focus too much on pick rate. But they do not take into account of things you encounter when doing a pick. They talk down to you and make you feel like you're slacking and not pushing yourself if you don't hit the target. Or if you manage to go above your target 1 he but below the next, your average drops which is unfair and does not show your actual potential.
All racks are like assault courses, they split up picks or give you really small picks on purpose. There is often a lot of empty slots and missing cases. Most of the equipment you are provided with does not work properly. Most trucks are damaged and poorly maintained, some of the voice headsets don't work and don't respond to you which consequently affects your productivity and pick rate. You go to selection to report missing cases or if the equipment is not working and they disregard and don't care. Somehow everything is your fault and your responsibility, not theirs.
If you happen to be given a big pick at one location, other colleagues often but in and stop you from picking especially if they have the same kind of pick. Instead of sharing the pallet, they demand the whole pallet despite you being there first. It's very frustrating.

Some supervisor team leaders are extremely rude and ignorant. Especially if they are having a bad
  more... day, they make sure you feel bad too for no reason whatsoever.

Reason why I gave a average star rating is because some of the staff that work there are lovely. And easy to talk to. The training is rather good and some colleagues are very helpful.

Pros
Above average living wage
Cons
Rude people that are clearly unhappy working there

Plusy-práce různorodá, placená každá minuta, stravenky
Prodavačka, pokladní (Former Employee) –  Moravskoslezský kraj19 October 2019
Musím bohužel dát i velké mínus za aroganci nadřízených, nerespektování volného času, povyšování se na podřízených (typu-budeš tady další hodinu, protože jsem se rozhodla), změny směn každou chvíli bez vašeho vědomí.. Vedení by mělo učit své ZMP slušného chování a respektování podřízené, jako člověka,ne jako hadr.

Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) –  Greater Manchester18 October 2019
Working for lidl is a physically demanding job which ever role your in, everyone gets stuck in and grafts, if not this will get noticed as you will just get left behind and end up getting under people's feet! Lidl is not a place for slackers you've got to be quick and efficient and you'll get by just fine. Hourly pay starts from £9 upto £10.10 for sales Assistants which is more than most retailers, get your own 10% discount card, decent uniform in different fits, (slim fit/regular) your wage is worked out off a time banking process is what lidl call it so whatever your contracted hours per week are you will always be paid them hours no matter what, which means even if 1 week your only working 15 hours and your contract is 20 you'll still get paid 20 hours! so your paid in arrears but it all balances out each month so that you always end up with overtime pay anyway by the end of the month. The managers are great always appreciative of the work you put in so cant complain, the whole team is friendly and welcoming, the sales Assistant role is hard work but easy and straightforward. First job in my entire life I can honestly say I genuinely love my job and don't dread going to work like previous jobs which is a nice feeling to have....hope I haven't spoke too soon!
