To the CEO and the Senior Management,
Hire German American store managers who are able to accurately recognize and communicate things that will not work for the American Customer. I did the this for Aldi. Lidl wants to take on Aldi , go ahead, but do not expect the same work ethics as in Deutschland, here you get out what you put in .A little thank you on a job well done, yearly raises goes a long way in retail but not paying at all or even a day late USA disgrace as people rely on every dollar b/c it’s already spend most of the time . I grew up with both , Lidl and Aldi in Germany and hope Lidl makes it here , but remember what happened when Walmart came to Germany? big bust , right? Do you know why ?If you don’t you should do a focus group inviting people who grew up with Lidl but live here long enough to be able to point out what doesn’t work for the super busy American shopper and how it could be approved slowly. Walmart failed cause of many reasons some small and fixable such as stores were too huge and imposing for the average German , too slow at checkout for the busy , Germans hate cueing , and the layout didn’t work either for Germany. Good luck in 🇺🇸 and please send a German Baker to train all American bakers,we all know about the bread here , but I think they are ready for Broetchen or a good Stuten or Doppelback!

Show respect to the associates that work hard and deserve it. Management know less then the associates so they have to keep them in their place out of fear. Lidl principles are easy to understand yet most of the supervisors are clueless! Why? Do they even have previous experience? They have zero people skills!!

Depends on your position. If SA, you'll regularly get 0-20. If PT30 SA you'll regularly get 30-40. Supervisors get 30-40 and above Managers are 40-80. During grand opening you get tons of overtime. After that you slowly get less hours because the company tracks productivity, this means hours are directly based on sales made
