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!!
A successful business would not make a schedule 2 days in advance. A successful business would not put a majority of staff on morning shifts when the busiest sale hours are during night shift. A successful business would not hire people who literally stand around all day and then not penalize them BUT INSTEAD have some people doing all the work and then they get criticized and ridiculed when things are not all the way finished. A successful business would understand a healthy work life balance. A successful business would not lie to its employees. I would run my business in a way that would be successful.
I have 25 years as a dept.mgr.and co store manager and I know how to train my workers to do what is necessary and do it correctly. It's quite simple, do it right or train new help.I applied and didn't get the call.To bad.
I would hire people with experience

I would follow through on and adhere to my own policies. I would respect my employees enough to give them proper communication in a timely manner. Preferably, not the day before or even a few days before. I would make it clear to those that I bring on as leaders that respect is something earned when it is given. Your title does not determine that you should be respected. I would ensure my staff that they will all be treated equally and fairly and that any injustices will be thoroughly investigated. Most importantly, I would have my staff know and truly believe that their safety is most important to us as a company and that we will do whatever necessary to make sure you feel safe at work and when you leave.
