    Business Outlook


    Excellent pay rate and used to have high morale in my store with stress free working conditions and just about manageable daily routines and tasks. Mutual respect between colleagues and worked as a team.


    In the last year the work and expectations of a shift manager in Lidl has gone above and beyond what is physically manageable, you now leave physically and mentally exhausted, everybody is just tired and exhausted with low morale and nothing is good enough no matter if you work 50-60 hours a week, I used to love my job I’ve done 5 years and I’ve got to a place I thought I’d never be in where I actually hate my job it’s depressing and just a hard slog with nothing but criticism and negativity from everyone above there’s been a massive increase in customers for obvious reasons but staffing numbers have not increased so the work is getting too much and I have slogged my back out I actually enjoyed it I’m not scared of hard graft one bit but I’ve got no passion for the job left and I can’t carry on doing a job a can’t stand being in and the worst thing is I saw Lidl as a job for life but swapping and changing managers around too much has destroyed my store in particular people are leaving left right and centre and it leaves you feeling like you don’t care anymore and that’s what it’s drove myself and others to it’s such a shame I wish I could get that passion back but it’s been knocked out of me by the management and the workload it’s now not worth the extra few pennies you get over the same roles at other retailers so I’m done
