Retail Assistant in Somerset
They expect too much from you
At the beginning of the job I enjoyed it, but the more comfortable the staff got with you the more they expected from you. I was always the person they asked to do the 5am overtime shifts. Baring in mind I lived the furthest away and had to use public transport, if I said no to over time they would always moan at me and treat me differently the next shift I’m in. Also any member of staff who is higher than a retail assistant doesn’t bother doing any work and helping in the shop floor. They’re always able to make one rule for themselves , such as having a cigarette break, and one for retail assistance (we wasn’t allowed one). Also the gossiping and talking behind your back is the worst thing ever, even the managers used to join in. It was good for the pay but was a horrible job to work.
Skivvy in 7 different locations
Full on 8 days a week...
Lead by a team of childish 25 plus stroppy managers... No clue on team work or health and safety... lidl seems to think that any size store in any area can run on skeleton staff. Head office call in for a day or days completely messing up a team as managers are part of a working team !!! Supposedly.. most team leaders are completely thrashed and when they stand up for themselves get dismissed or some are just used until another is found
Maintenance Technician in Uk
Unbalanced wage structures
Working within the maintenance being required to carry out fire testing on a weekly basis, welding, Joinery, plumbing, working at height on platforms and carrying sleepers up to 80kg most days. To think it is acceptable to pay the same rates as they do for people that pick is ridiculous, one is a skilled job role while the other isn't. Then you've the aspect of risk factors in the roles which we aren't seeing any benefit to the job.

Warehouse Picker in Southampton, Hampshire
Not a nice environment to work in
The management is terrible! They have long and awkward shifts! You’re over worked and the rota is very unsociable! You have to work 3 weekends a month. They have a thing called banked hours so most of the overtime you do is for free! Not many benefits. It’s a very draining job! Stressful and tiring whilst under slot of pressure.
