Sorry, one of my friend's just got hold of the computer while i was washing my hair. :x

I'd say go for it, they seem a repsectable company and think of the discounts on already cheap food! :w00t:

Do they pay as much as Aldi? If so it's worth it. Aldi pay quite good wages, and Lidl are a very similar company.
#5
im not sure of their rates as yet, i have an interview next week, i have to look into childcare for the holidays ect, hence it being a big thing, wanted to know if anyone had any experiences

I know, it's nuts. I was sat in The Penny Bank pub having a pint and discovered my beermat was advertising jobs at Aldi. Trainee managers earning £36000 and moving up to £55000 in 3 years. I honestly started questioning what on earth I was doing working my ass off as a designer.
#7
Yeah, lol. And even the till people get paid plenty... £7.40 rising to £8.70 per hour.

Aldi store managers get £31,250 rising to £40,000+ pa after training and area managers get £38k pa plus fully expensed Audi A4 rising to £54.5k pa plus benefits.

Yes but you have decent hours.I presume?.I just wouldn't want the late evenings and weekends of supermarket hours of opening.

Lidl are pretty much on par. Store assistants get hourly rate up to £7.80. Store Managers up to £35,000pa.

It's only Aldi... they don't open late! Open 9-6, 10-4 Sundays. No late hours there... plenty of scope for your social life in the evenings and they probably have weekend staff too.

I'm also thinking of applying for a job in a new lidl near me....wonder if we live in the same area? lol
#12
cool, i'll only be part time, probably 10 -2 weedays while the kids are at school, just wanted to ask around before talking the plunge

i dont mind working for it aslong as its a friendly environment :thumbsup:
#17
hhaha
friendly??? that depends on who your customers are, what part of town its in etc

theres times where even the managers have to get on the tills etc
#18
I've noticed that the managers sometimes work on tills. I think it probably helps the employees to interact with each other and stuff.

Also, in my local store all of the staff are friendly and a lot of people talk back. I can't tell you how you're treated but it's a friendly atmosphere. I think if you come across as friendly and don't mind taking the time to talk to some of the older customers who come for the bargains in the mornings then you'll have a nice time.

I have, however, been to one close to a twon centre and saw the staff stop two shop lifters during my short visit... as rajpop says, it probably depends on the area.
#19
will they let me take a laptop in, sit at the tills with it, browsing hot deals?.............
#20
I doubt it. :-(

ok, speaking from experience here. Used to work for them when they were the new kids on the (cheap supermarket) block. I would definately recommend you do not work for them: For your 7 quid an hour you will work very, very hard: when you are not working a till, you will be merchendising stock, lifting cases, pulling pallets around the store, cleaning up in the evenings when the store has closed etc. Also they're non too hot at paying you correctly when you do them a favour and do the odd extra shift - they 'forget' to add it on to your timesheet. When you are allocated your break - if the shop-floor or tills get busy - you'll be pulled off your break to go back to work, they frown upon you leaving the store on your breaks/lunch, so that you're always on hand!!
If you're a manager, to get your £30+ grand a year, you have to sign a waiver to work in excess of 40 hours a week, usually in the region of at least 60 hours a week.

I could go on.... they are not in my list of favourite employers, best employer I had when working in Retail, was Argos - if there's one of them near you, apply there instead!!
#23
thank you

Argos was my nex port of call :)

hi, my mothers cousin is a manager for our local lidl and very fair to his staff, the rate of pay seems o.k but like the others have said depends who your manager is, mind you the staff do change hands regulary in their so my husband said as he is always in their when the deals change, think they know him!!:giggle: but you could still go for interview and see what the manager and staff are like, instincts can go a long way, hope you get what you want, good luck :thumbsup:

The last time i was in Lidl near christchurch (bournemouth way), another member of staff asked the young lad on the till if they had adverts for jobs in russia, as nearly all the till workers were from there... it made me smile ;)

[SIZE=2]If this is the one in Boscome, then they must have changed their staff again, as I was sure they were all from Poland....... never mind next week it will be Romania. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Most of the staff are friendly.... especially if you can speak Polish, in which case they seem to talk for ages, and no manager ever tells them off - [/SIZE]
