Call with your new line manager

Your line manager will give you a Welcome Call before you join Lidl. This is a great opportunity for you to ask any questions you have so that you have everything you need for your new career at Lidl. On this call your line manager will make sure you know your rota for your first week, and they will also tell you who your Training Mentor will be. This is a person within the store who will guide you through your training plan to make your first few months at Lidl go smoothly.


Learning about Lidl

After this, you should expect an email which includes the details for your first day at Lidl. Your first day will involve a session where you learn more information about life at Lidl and what your first few weeks will look like. This session could take place in your new store, or the Regional Distribution Centre - check the email for all the details!
