Gosh, where to start.
Extremely competitive. DM too hands on and very miromanaging to the point where motivation is not in the Lidl vocabulary. Not motivational from higher management, very demotivating and fear culture is 100% since this company changes EVERYDAY!
On average the store will have a total of 10 employees working throughout the day... this includes associates, supervisors and managers. These employees are to run the store in its entirety...kpi, work stock, warehouse, sales floor, register, exterior, plannograms, ordering, bakery, office work, maintenance, housekeeping.... I could go on.... get everything done in the shortest amount of time possible.... or else.
Training did NOT prepare you for the terrible work life at Lidl. The endless “why didn’t you get this done?” Routine. Honestly... if you like to get beat down and get back up again and again and again on the daily... Lidl is right for you.
Benefits. PTO. Occasional Sunday off. Good training. Great prices.
Time management, Lack of employee retention, Productivity is more important than people, Fear culture
