  • Getting to see a variety of areas throughout the company over the year was great!


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • All departments at Lidl are extremely welcoming and instantly make sure you feel part of the team. I always felt valued and that my work was having a real impact on the team.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • The support from my manager throughout the year was amazing! They would always ensure I was in the area that best suited me and would always try to seek new and exciting opportunities for myself to take part in, particularly through the uncertain times during the pandemic! They made sure I got the best I possibly could out of my year at Lidl!


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • No day is the same at Lidl, and everyday is always a busy day! There is never an opportunity to sit around and do nothing, particularly when based within stores.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • In any department I worked in during my time at Lidl I always had huge amounts of responsibility. For example, working on real-life projects for Head Office to becoming a Shift Manager within stores.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
