Restaurant attendant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 21 June 2017
Working There is great it can become hectic during the weekends due to having most of the clients being free and willing t stop by the restaurant during the weekend but everyone no matter what their job is would help. They are also ready to let you train in what you are willing to take on. The only problem is the hours are not always clear for everyone specially if you are part time.
Part Time Coworker (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 May 2017
Never had a job who cared so much about you as a person and it was especially surprising how such a big company like ikea would have time to do so. The management team is strict but understanding and my direct supervisor always made sure that everyone's schedules and needs were met to the best of her abilities. It is a really great place to work and everyone works together for the greater good.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 May 2017
really great company, really great values, generally everyone that works there is nice. of course it is a retail job so there are customers that you have to deal with and other cons but that is any retail job. IKEA i would say is one of the better retail jobs to have. So if you have your heart set on retail or are just looking for a job to pay the bills IKEA is good place to apply at.
