Lidl’s Store Management Development Program (SMDP) is a customized modular-based training program to prepare you for your store management role. The goal of the SMDP is to recruit and hire talented, seasoned store management to prepare them to help launch and successfully run a Lidl store in the U.S. SMDP candidates will get the chance to learn the business and develop leadership skills in our newly-built stores and receive a hands-on learning experience of technical and soft skills. SMDP candidates will be provided learning support and receive evaluations as they move through the program to ensure their success in store management.
In the first phase, candidates will go through onboarding and start their leadership development journey in the U.S. The next few phases focus on technical skills training in a live Lidl store environment. Once the candidate has successfully completed their training, they will receive their store assignment and get ready to hire and develop their own store team before opening a Lidl store.
Upon completion of the training, you will be part of a two-man store management team in-store that has full ownership of your store. You are responsible for hiring, KPIs, and performance management in your store with the autonomy to make decisions that impact the business.
