Productive and Fast Paced
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, VA – 1 April 2019
A typical day at Lidl for me would be coming in at 5:30AM and stocking or what they call it "Packing Out" until 7:30AM or so. My main role at Lidl is working in the Produce section. I work in that section everyday and the main things that I do is stock, quality check items throughout the day,clean around the department, and dispose of any empty boxes. The shift typically ends at 2PM, but depending on the business of the store, or the day of the week, I leave at 2:30PM. I leave at 2:30 mostly on Saturdays because the weekends are the busiest time at the store.
I have learned a lot with my experience at LIdl. I have learned how to work in a fast paced environment, I have learned a lot of organizational skills through this job, and have learned a lot more customer service skills to satisfy a customers needs.
The management is great, they are very friendly people who treat us all fairly. I have never felt as if a manager did not like me or the way I was working.
The hardest part of the job is the business of the store, and the lack of employees on the shift that is very busy. This most of the time puts the store at a disadvantage because this puts us behind on work, and on days when it gets busy, it's hard to work around all of the foot traffic coming through the store.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and the environment. Everyone that works there knows eachother and everyone is friendly. This is what helps makes the store run better is teamwork and everyone being on the same page and being able to work together.
Great Hours, Great People, Fast Paced
