Highlights: Reddit users anonymously reveal their supermarket experiences. An alleged Rewe employee explains why she prefers to go to Aldi and Lidl. A possible colleague of hers reveals the best-selling item, which he can't really explain either. The people there are mostly anonymous, so their information cannot be checked any more than their job details.. A man who, according to his own statements, has been working for the Schwarz Group with LidL and Kaufland for ten years. He talks about the customers and a beverage question.



A man who, according to his own statements, has been working for the Schwarz Group with Lidl and Kaufland for ten years, unpacks. He talks about the customers and a beverage question.

In this respect, it is no wonder that supermarket employees always meet with special interest when they anonymously face other users in the Reddit Q&A sessions. An alleged Rewe employee once explained why she prefers to go to Aldi and Lidl. And a possible colleague of hers reveals the best-selling item, which he can't really explain either. The people there are mostly anonymous, so their information cannot be checked any more than their job details. Most of the time, however, the details already testify to the fact that everything is most likely authentic.

Lidl / Kaufland: Alleged employee of the Schwarz Group unpacks

This also applies to the thread created by another user: He is 30 years old and has been working for the Schwarz Group with Kaufland and Lidl for ten years. From a temporary job, he has now made it to a management position in the company. He is deputy branch manager, he specifies. Now he willingly reveals what supermarket customers want to know. He takes a lot of time for this, so that only a small part of the answers can be found here - interested parties can read deeper in the original thread.

The alleged Kaufland/Lidl employee explains, for example - mind you, this should also be taken with a grain of salt - how fast the cashiers actually are or should be. "The scans per minute are a big measurement factor. The 'default' is 40 pieces per minute. Sounds extreme at first. It should be. Because that would be the ultimate. To have 100% correct in an Abitur exam would also be the ultimate, but almost impossible to do. We set the bar high, but we don't put pressure on them if they don't do it (as long as you don't fall asleep). We always say the store average is a good guide for the new employees. If they reach the speed, they're well trained."

Another wants to know what it's like to "work for the richest German?" and asks: "How long would you have to work to have the same fortune?" The answer comes promptly: "Let me do the math. So few quadrillion years?" And adding: "Since his fortune is growing faster than I get salary, no matter how long I work, I will not be able to catch up with him."

"At Kaufland, customers are very grumpy and clumsy if there aren't enough checkouts open"

The user also talks about the clientele. How often do people misbehave in the supermarket? "Of course, it depends on what you already call aggressive. I'm always very relaxed and very rarely feel attacked." His exciting impression: "At Kaufland, customers are very grumpy and clumsy if there are not enough checkouts open. At Lidl, everyone is a lot more relaxed." Of course, this is a subjective assessment - but it at least coincides with the Twitter complaint of a Kaufland customer recently.

As is so often the case - for example, when a hardware store employee reveals his favorite hiding place - it also gets bizarre in the Reddit thread. Because one of them asks the question of all questions: "Why is there almost never the good peach iced tea at Kaufland, but lemon iced tea in abundance (nobody seems to want to drink - understandably - because it is already dusting with us)?" He feels the question, notes the alleged Schwarz employee with Kaufland experience. At the same time, however, he clarifies: "Unfortunately, this is a question that no one can ever answer. Even the people in purchasing can't answer that." Another beverage issue often makes supermarket employees stinky: Because certain bottles should never be placed on the checkout belt. (lin)
