Lidl is a good company and pays well but poorly managed on regional level. The culture is very bad and their scores represent that. Make sure to read all reviews from US, they are combined with all countries. Training Dept doesn’t exist. You will receive very little training because they are short handed in the stores all the time so there is no one to train you. Management has little experience in job roles. The harder you work the less chance you will be promoted. They promote only people who kiss up. Turnover is very high due to culture. Very stressful and expectations are very unattainable and you will still be pressured to complete. Management will talk down to you. NO WORK/LIFE BALANCE
Great Benefits and Pay
No Work/Life Balance and Toxic Enviroment
If you are looking to start a career in grocery management this company is a great place to start. Buyer beware though-- the company touts work/life balance. but depending on your store/line manager it will not happen. Expect to work days straight without any thought to how it effects you mentally or physically.
At work we get responsibilities but same time get ownership which make us feels good and happy when achieving the task and management recognised our hard work.
Staff discount, employee discussions & feedback
Horrible store level training... Extremely high turn over. As the saying goes; people quit managers and not companies. The store asa manager all Did was push freight. The store manager's prove to me you want to be trained lol. Just preposterous!!!
Very competitive pay
Broken store level training

Great to do the job if you are left alone as a store manager and you succeed greatly. Support from area managers and regional managers is none existent and be prepared to be undermined and back stabbed a lot. A toxic work environment they put you in. But from a store environment it was lovely, challenging and rewarding. A shame about the management outside of the store. I happily took a pay cut to be in a better environment.
Toxic management beyond store level.
Horrible company to work for......They want you to do 4+ jobs per shift like this is europe where the stores are way smaller. They do the exact opposite of what they say. THis company is the worst company to work for.
As with all management positions, Lidl requires you to be on call at all times. In itself, not an issue. However, I worked 24+hr shifts on a weekly basis, maxing out at 59 hrs straight over 5 back to back shifts between multiple locations. Attempts to occasionally (ever, really) decline to pick up extra hours, projects, or provide support for other stores is met with severe disapproval from upper management.
Horrible company management consistently degrading others extremely high standards impossible to achieve bare minimum labour expected to work 6 days to 7 50 to 60 hours
No quality of life
Management is all over the place with multiple styles of managing which constantly contradict one another making everything you do be put under constant scrutiny. There is also no respect for a work life balance (even before the pandemic hit). I constantly feel like i am at odds with maintaining healthy relationships out side of my job and just keeping it. Also all the good work you do tends to go unnoticed so don't think you will be thank for your hard work and good efforts.
Lidl US offers a great package at first, until you step in the store. Working stocks in the freezer, running pallets of goods, finish pallets in 20, 30 minutes, even with someone in a good physical shape is impossible. Managers sitting in the office, Assistant managers outside smoking, and they work you to death. Running in-between the cash register and stocking the store, pretty hopeless. You can't trust anyone and you won't be respected in this place. If you get hired as a Supervisor, they will fire you for something you didn't do. If they pick you as an associate, you won't get many hours, run...
As a former employee it was my experience that they are very demanding and the culture is a club culture not a team oriented one. If you like to be used and not respected then lidl is the job for you.
Benefits and pay
major health hazard
Well paid with opportunities to progress. No work life balance and a fast paced stressful environment to work in.
Good Salary, Company car, good exposure to managing
No work life balance. Working with limited resources. No proper support from area managers
The training is horrible! They overlook the hard workers. All of the equipment is from Germany which makes it hard to fix when there is a problem. The people aren't trained to rotate products and makes more work for others. They over order stuff which also affects the training because they will need more people to pack out! They require you to pack out the new merchandise vs the old. I've spoken to one of the DM regarding an issue with a ASM and nothing was done about it!! They expect you to do EVERYTHING while the ASM and SM basically do nothing. They'll also tell you that you are FT and you'll wind up being PT, then you won't even get the efficient amount of hours to take care of your needs. The pallets come over stocked making things harder for the shorter employees.
No support and horrible training
I took this job as progression from a lower level management role at another supermarket. I was enticed by promises of progression and excellent training, as well as good pay and a company car within a company that was billed to me as futuristic and forward thinking. After taking the offer I immediately found a company completely different to the one it portrays to its prospective employees. Stores are run down and there is no appetite for anyone to properly train new staff. Area managers and higher management don't care about anyone other than themselves and show no interest in you once you are in the door. You are just another number to them. They will squeeze every inch of work they can out of you and then squeeze some more until you are drained, depressed and feel like there's no escape. The whole business runs on a blame culture where you always feel your job is at risk, and systems and practices are beyond dated. For a company that prides itself on efficiency, it is quite the opposite. Communication is atrocious and it is impossible to speak to anyone unless they want something from you in return. Avoid this company at all costs or you will end up regretting it just like I did.
Lower level staff are largely nice people
Lidl US started off a great place to work for. I will say overall, it still is a great place to work for. The benefits are better than most grocery stores, paid time off is great as long as you put in way in advance. Unfortunately, as in most businesses, when you don't make sales you can't have staff. Low pay + no staff= zero productivity. It's difficult to get anything done with staff can't or won't come in to work. And it reflects poor on the managers when people don't come in to work. Depending on the store, it's difficult to maintain consistency. I commend anyone who can make work as hard as they do at Lidl and not all under pressure when things don't go to plan.
Pto, Paid maternity, paid holiday, supportive team members
breaks are rushed, low staff, stress level, work/life balance
I'll be honest, I believed in Lidl and the culture they promoted when I was first hired as a Store Supervisor. And then within the first week I quickly realized that there was 0 communication and no actual training. Naturally, I fought for my training and felt that I excelled at my position. I later applied for the ASM position. A few days the interview, I was told by my Store Manager as well as the DM "unofficially" congratulations. Due to COVID, the 3 of us who were told we unofficially got the positions, were told that they could not give us the pay raise due to the hiring freeze and the newest store in our towns construction was frozen as well. But we were expected to still perform all of the duties that were assigned to the ASM? Empty promises.
Fantastic customer service opportunity
