You need to be interested in retail; you need to be up to date on the on going competition between Lidl and other retailers such as Tesco’s, Dunnes Stores and Aldi. If you are competitive you will be excited by ongoing tactics to increase footfall and drive sales. You need to be a team player and communicate well with colleagues. I think punctuality is very important as it will earn you respect and people will trust you to be on time.

Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
