The Placement offered a variety of roles in different departments which kept it interesting as we are allowed to pick which ones we would like to do ( approx 4-5 choices over the year ). However, the department I enjoyed the most, couldn't accommodate me when I wanted to go back. Some departments offered more work than others.
I loved every minute of working for Lidl! I feel the experience gained throughout my placement year is totally invaluable. I have already reccommended the placement to students at my university interested in a placement. Being able to work in all areas of the business is something that gives you the best insight into how Lidl operates.
The overall placement experience has been very enjoyable, providing insight into different areas of the business. The great thing about this placement scheme is that it allows you to map the direction of your year, giving you the opportunity to select which departments you want to progress in.
The year is crammed full of diverse experiences. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the role of each department and how they work together. During the placement there is also several meetings with all the placement students of all different areas of the UK. This is a great chance to swap experiences and stories. I would highly recommend the 48week Placement.
really enjoyed the variety of job roles I was able to experience throughout the duration of the placement, for example; Sales, Stock Control, Property and Warehouse. Naturally some I enjoyed more than others, but I found it all to be a great learning experience which I will take from this.
I thoroughly enjoyed my year with Lidl and can honestly say I don't think I would have gained as much experience anywhere else. I was able to work in several different departments, including some time at Head Office in Wimbledon, which gave me a greater insight into the way the company operates. The placement was well structured and organised but still gave me the freedom to tailor the year to suit myself.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement year and will be sad to leave the company. I have had a very unique opportunity to work in several different areas of the business in several different roles. Although i may not have necessarily enjoyed every role, it has certainly been beneficial to help me with some of the decisions i may make in the future in regards to my career after university. I have met some great people throughout the year, all of whom have been extremely helpful and supportive.
