A Day in the Life of a Lidl Customer Assistant
‘What attracted me to Lidl was the fast pace, the movement, the progression. I liked that it was something different every day…’
Lauren Carter, a Customer Assistant at Lidl, tells us why she personally joined Lidl from her previous job at a call centre.
‘I shopped at Lidl before I even worked here so I just saw how busy they were and I wanted to be a part of that.’
One thing’s for sure – you won’t be bored working at Lidl! There’s a lot going on when you’re working at one of the UK’s most loved supermarkets, and things move pretty fast. From helping customers with specific questions to helping manage and maintain stock, no two days are ever the same.
Lauren talks about her specific role within the Lidl team.
‘I usually do the bakery, so if it’s a morning shift, I’ll come in at 6am and the prep has already been done … I’ll come in and start putting that in the oven. We follow a baking plan to the tee so it’s no problem. We just make sure the bakery looks full in the morning, looks full throughout the day and bake as and when we need to.’
‘If I don’t need to do anything in the bakery or go on the shop floor, I’ll help with the ambient, or the delivery in the morning, or I will do de-carding around the store…’
Of course, being often the first point-of-contact for customers who walk through the door is also a big part of the job.
‘Different people every day ask different questions and having that knowledge is definitely key… I absolutely love it though… if someone needs something, I will go to that aisle with them and show them.’
‘There is one lady who comes in who I always help… she’s just a lovely person and we have a chat and she’s brought her son in once too. It’s just little things like that.’
Those who love helping others, interacting with people and generally have a friendly personality will find themselves glowing as a Lidl Customer Assistant.
