    J'ai travaillé chez Lidl en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Dynamische en resultaatgerichte omgeving, veel ruimte om ambities waar te maken, professioneel. Lidl doet het goed in de markt en bouwt een mooi merk, het is erg leuk om daar deel van uit te mogen maken.

    Inconvénients

    Lidl wil Top Employer zijn/worden. Op papier is dit misschien al gelukt, maar de praktijk is nog ver weg. Met name in de winkels is de werkdruk erg hoog. Het senior management slaat nog vaak zelf de plank mis. Men wil wel, maar weet niet hoe of er is geen ruimte voor.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stuur iets minder op kosten/uren/resultaten en kijk iets meer naar de medemenselijkheid van het beleid. Met name het management kan hier een verschil in maken.

    J'ai travaillé chez Lidl en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Pay is excellent
    Job is essentially easy when have no absence
    10% discount
    Good holiday allowance
    Employee benefit portal very good (needs shouting about)
    Shift patterns allow for extra family time (when it fits to the business needs)
    Head of sales (KE) positive

    Inconvénients

    Worst and most unorganised business I have been involved with, started well and exciting but quickly degraded.

    17 senior management changes above me in last 18 months from area to national manager gives the business a very unstable feel and the change of ‘focus areas’ was a constant struggle. Managing a team when you couldn’t get a routine settled before it was changed again was very frustrating and tough

    As a store manager I felt let down by the logistical and operational side of the RDC, rarely a day went by without an issue. Causing unnecessary work and stress to rectify.

    Inventory loss is a massive focus and rightly so, only problem is the warehouse control is so poor you would be missing a pallet of drinks, clearly not in store as your section was empty but claim would be rejected by RDC anyway as ‘it was picked so must have been sent’. It likely was.. just not to the right store!! No support caused more issues between store management and distribution

    I would not recommend unless you get a new lovely shiny store and are prepared to constantly fight the politics and poor operation.

    Maybe other regions have better experiences. Northfleet was the poorest performing in the UK for a reason...

    Conseils à la direction

    Management in store work hard and have to constantly adapt to changes above, appreciate them as without them the business will fail.

    Stop with the short lived secondments and swapping of area manager, head of sales and regional director.

    J'ai travaillé chez Lidl en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 10 ans)

    Avantages

    Good pay and company car. Opportunities to progress if you tow the line and don't question anything - just do as your told and you'll go far

    Inconvénients

    Long, long hours. Don't expect much of a work/life balance. Lidl has to be your life and your expected to work for every penny of your salary which is fine but most managers are working unofficially after the end of their working hours to complete tasks that can't be achieved due to the every increasing targets being set by senior management

    Conseils à la direction

    Senior management need to change and practice what they preach. Area/Store management are told one thing but senior management always revert back to the old ways of doing things as they can't adjust to change

    Avantages

    Salary and benefits are ahead of the competition. Multinational company - option to relocate, especially to USA where just expanded to. Experienced senior managers, clear communication.

    Inconvénients

    Lack of training, changes in training plans. Seems to be a high level of customer assistant turnover and some levels of senior management. Difficultly to recruit and lack of input in recruitment process. Lack of hours.

    Conseils à la direction

    More often than not stores struggle as hours targets are too tight. Staff leave because they are expected to compete the jobs of 2 or 3 people yet often don't get the hours they are contracted to every week. Relax the high productivity figures and watch staff become more engaged, motivated and sales will grow even further.

    Avantages

    Store Management is very passionate about what they do and it helps the team want to do our best. Good pay for the work, store is beautiful, team members are fun people.

    Inconvénients

    The company claims to be efficient but it can take 2 hours just to get cashed out if you're a cashier and they expect you to stay and work until everyone gets cashed out. So if you're supposed to get off at 2pm expect 4pm...9:30pm... expect 11:30pm. You're pretty much forced into overtime if you want to keep your job because senior management/corporate really couldn't care less about your personal lives. You're pretty much expected to sell your soul even if you're just an associate.

    Conseils à la direction

    In store management is amazing, but higher ups... seriously? Respect the American people and our values too, its rude to come into another country and expect everyone to just jump when you say jump.

    Avantages

    - Good Benefits
    - New/Clean office space
    - Knowledgeable IT department
    - Occasionally employees receive free food/merchandise that will be sold in the store

    Inconvénients

    - Not everyone that works at HQ can park at HQ (you have to park in a garage a mile away from the building and walk to take the bus to the office). Most of the parking spaces are reserved for more tenured employees and senior management.
    - No free coffee.
    - Many senior managers are inexperienced in managing people, unprofessional, unethical, and are incapable of taking accountability for the work product of their teams. Senior managers are very willing to throw their teams under the bus, rather than manage conflict head-on.
    - Very hierarchical. Employees don't have real access to their senior managers and above. Analysts and specialists are not involved in meetings or discussions about topics that directly affect their work, and then they are held accountable for work product that did not live up to expectations set in said meetings/discussions.
    - People are forced out through performance management techniques that have no merit or documentation.
    - When you are involved in meetings, a lot of the time people talk in circles, asserting power or control, and nothing gets accomplished. It is a big waste of time.
    - People in the position to make decisions and lead department initiatives are poor communicators.
    - HR as a whole is not really a resource. There are some helpful people, but most are ineffective, especially management.

    Conseils à la direction

    I sincerely hope this company can still do well with all of the inexperienced managers and egos that are in the way. :-/

    Avantages

    No pros for employees with experience. If you are a recent college graduate you will be paid more than other places.

    Inconvénients

    Too many to count. Read all the reviews on here and you will see a pattern. Employee turnover is extremely high, for a reason. My previous review was flagged (go figure). In this post I will post facts only.

    - They discriminate. I have witnessed discrimination of others and experienced my own share of it.
    - They retaliate. If you draw attention to their unfair practices or their authoritarian leadership style, your career suffers and your workload changes.
    - They try and influence your private life. They inappropriately inquire with other employees whether or not they plan to spend time with you outside of work. If management has issues with you, employees are told that there will be consequences for them if they ‘hang out’ with you.
    - If you ask work related questions they think you should know the answer to, you are told you are too dumb to do your job. You are yelled at. You are belittled and ridiculed in front of everyone. This is a daily occurrence for many employees.
    - They are highly unprofessional. Senior management parties with employees after hours and uses inappropriate language while at work. There are always rumors of who hooked up with who. Even married/senior employees. If you don't want any part in this, you are treated differently.
    - Promotions are random and very much based on personal preferences and not on qualification. Most of the time your talent has nothing to do with it.
    - They engage in immoral actions like threats of demotion or to be fired. Simply requesting to apply for another position within the company will cause them to interrogate and threaten you.
    - They come on here to write fake positive reviews - HR has personally told me that. They blame negative reviews on ‘trouble makers’ and ‘under performers’ – except that this is not true. The employees who complain are highly qualified and educated people who have had great success before they started with this company. They complain because they are appalled by the way they are treated, not because they are ‘underperformers’. The amount of negative reviews does not lie. Not everyone can be an underperformer or bad seed.
    - After seeking help from HR because of the unfair treatment I was receiving, I was advised to just look for another job. The reasoning: It was for my own best since HR knew about the issues and said their hands are tied to do anything about it. They blame it on the ‘cultural differences’ between the headquarters in Germany and the US. So HR is practically useless. Not to speak of the amount of times they have messed up paychecks and benefits.
    - Your performance reviews are not based on your actual performance in the job. Instead, managers make up things based on whether they like you or not.
    - Of course everything said to you that could be considered discriminatory or retaliation is off record. Trying to prove any of this is impossible because it happens behind closed doors. Other employees who might be witnesses are too scared to speak up because they don’t want to be in the same boat. You know it’s bad when employees start recording their conversations just to have a backup.

    Conseils à la direction

    No advice unless you are willing to start over and replace your entire senior management team.
