Good place to start. Good insurance. Always short in employees. Work environment is not so funny.They pay $16 per hour to any associate. No more no less. And does not matter how much experience do you have

Lidl Dobroszyce - niewolnictwo bez granic

Jedyny plus to to, że wszystko jest jeszcze nowe, jednak widać już zaniedbania. Sama praca nieogarnięta, raz się kończy o 15 raz o 18 - robimy aż nie skończymy. Nadgodziny wypłacane tylko do 7h ponieważ za 8h już się dostaje dzień wolny. Soboty i niedziele też do odbioru w tygodniu. Przerwa 30min tylko 15min z tego jest do odrobienia. Kierownictwo na te przejawy wyzysku i niewolnictwa mówi "wszystko jest zgodne z prawem pracy". Co do jedzenia czasami trafi się coś dobrego. Ogólnie na przerwie dla biura jest wszystko a dla plebsu fizycznego zostają resztki, gorzej jak dla psa. Przyjmują zamówienia chaotycznie, sklepy nie mają wytycznych bo niewolnicy zrobią wszystko

Pros

Brak

Cons

15min przerwy, darmowe nadgodziny do odbioru, soboty i niedziele w pracy, w tygodniu praca bez ograniczeń dopóki się nie skończy

Nice place to work

I enjoyed my time working there.Collegues are like eveywhere,there were some I liked there were some I didn’t like.When working full time,the working hours can make you feel like you don’t really have work-life balance,but they pay well for it.

Pros

Collegues

Cons

Heavy work

Team Lidl

Het is echt een heel gaaf bedrijf om voor te werken. Met alle collega’s proberen we iedere dag weer de mooiste producten voor onze klanten te presenteren. Hier heb je iedereen keihard voor nodig en die teamspirit voel je. Organisatie waar je kansen krijgt als je het in je functioneren laat zien. Werken voor Lidl was oprecht een van de beste beslissingen uit mijn leven.

Environnement stressante

Le salaire est attractif chez lidl et il y'a beaucoup d'avantages mais avec une charge de travail élevé et si tu tombes sur des managers désagréable c'est vraiment le burn out.S'y ajoute il faut vraiment avoir un esprit relation client maximum pour supporter les clients de Lidl.

Pros

Prime et avantages

Cons

Pas d'équilibre entre vie professionnelle/vie privée

Wouldn’t Recommend. Unless you don’t like having a social life

I started almost 2 years ago now. I got hired as part time (25 hour contract) and have always been expected to work 5 days a week. I’d often hit 40 hour a week mark. Which is good for some people…. I joined in hopes to only work those hours as I have other commitments aswell, I recently started a degree . Me and Countless colleagues who attend Uni are expected to swap shifts if we can or attend our 5 days we’ve been put on for. If you’re lucky enough to not be working 5 days, you’re messaged or called to pick up another shift. This also applies if you call in sick… you’re expected to pick up a shift later in the week to make up for it. I have around 3 meetings/talks to resolve issues with my rota and my preferences and I feel as if I don’t get anywhere. I’ve even resulted in asking to lower my contract hours in hopes to have a decent work/life balance!

Pros

10% Discount? Not that worth it though… The money is good though

Cons

Long hours, expectation to work 5 days a week. Regardless if your part time or full time

Société orienté productivité

La manutention fait partie de votre quotidien car vous êtes constamment en sous effectif. Le temps de l'analyse, du management et de l'administratif est complexe car il faut trouver le temps. Toute la logique Lidl est forgé autour de votre résultat et objectif de performance.

Environnement très stressant

Si vous n’avez pas de vie de famille allez chez eux. Environnement très stressant et très compétitif. Beaucoup souffrent d’harcèlement morale dans cette entreprise. Mais personne dit rien malheureusement

Good place to work

Not a bad place to work. Pay is good and they will work with you if you have emergencies or anything come up. Friendly and helpful environment that makes you feel like seen and heard

No work life balance

Job is very stressful and hard as a manager you are expected to do everything from cleaning the toilets to papre work in office. Depending on in what store you end up if it's understaffed you will be expected to stay and finish a job and you won't get paid for that. Management have 39h in the contract but they require you to stay extra to "finish the job" (no overtime paid). Higher management don't give any support to the store management most of the times you on your own, if you can't find cover for a sick person it's your problem and you have to work with less staff which leads to late closing sometimes you will end up leaving the store after 12am. You work as a cashier a packer and a management and expected to be on time and fit all the extra tasks they want

Une très bonne ambiance, un équipement adapté au poste, une direction à l'écoute

Superbe expérience, une entreprise en évolution permanente et reconnaissante envers son personnel. Lidl est une enseigne que je recommande à toutes les personnes qui veulent s'investir et évoluer dans la grande distribution.

Worker Beware

Lidl rely on hungry ppl to run their shops. Ppl who are hapy to work on their days off. Lidl isn't a career choice its a life choice go home or work.

Ambiente di lavoro positivo e giovane

Ho un bel ricordo della mia esperienza in Lidl perché ho avuto l'occasione di entrare in una realtà multinazionale e capire quanto sia strutturata e complessa. A seconda del reparto in cui capiti puoi avere belle o brutte impressioni. Io devo dire che sono sempre stata fortunata con i colleghi e con i responsabili

Sfruttamento dei nuovi arrivati, paga buona

Non ti viene fornito tempo per imparare e per spiegarti come fare le cose, pretendono il "nascere imparato", in pratica. Le mansioni peggiori vengono lasciate sempre ai nuovi arrivati, che, nonostante ciò, sono praticamente in tutti i casi destinati all'addio all'azienda dopo la fine del primo contratto, e quindi la fidelizzazione dei giovani dipendenti nei confronti dell'azienda è pari a zero. In generale ambiente di lavoro stressante, viene costantemente chiesto di "correre" a tal punto che non si può stare tranquilli nemmeno ad andare a bere un bicchiere d'acqua o a espletare le proprie funzioni fisiologiche, ti seguono a volte. Nel corso digitale obbligatorio (Leon) tanti slogan del tipo "gruppo coeso e unito" ma nella realtà dei fatti ci sono alcuni colleghi che ti demotivano di continuo, ti mettono pressione e soggezione, e infine sparlano alle tue spalle e non, nonostante ciò sia del tutto immotivato. Può capitare che si venga mandati in prestito ad altre filiali (addirittura anche nelle prime due settimane di lavoro) senza praticamente minima attrezzatura. E capita anche che in queste filiali temporanee, per il neo-assunto, vi siano capi filiale che ti screditano addossandoti colpe solo perché, per esempio, ti sono stati forniti gli orari sbagliati dalla filiale di provenienza. Il weekend non è quasi mai libero e chiedere le ferie (quelle guadagnate mensilmente, e che quindi che dovrebbero essere date senza nemmeno discuterci) anche poche volte, viene fatto sembrare chissà che cosa dal capo filiale. Unica cosa positiva la paga che è abbastanza al di sopra della media -

It's marmite.

A typical days work can include everything under the sun especially for management, which does massively impact any attempt at a work life balance. It is a very fast paced and active environment which isn't for the faint of heart at all, and in all honesty is why a lot of new starters do not break through that first year. As a whole, the general dynamic is good, though over the last little while it has been changing more dramatically than expected, with communication, direction and expectations. For me the workplace culture, and I have now started to see this in many stores, is becoming more toxic and unpleasant.For me, the hardest part of the job is also the most enjoyable, and that is the fast paced multitasking that we do on a day to day basis.

Pros

Fast paced, productive and pay.

Cons

No work life balance, poor communication and toxic culture.

Too much box ticking

They have lost their way. The main aim is to constantly open new stores even though they have difficulty keeping current stores stocked . Basically a shambles . Also don't expect fairness in the rotas .unless you are a favourite or daddy is in management
