Service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 September 2017
I worked at a customer service counter where I would serve people with many different problems, complains and return issues. I have learned how to better deal with people and help them find solutions while giving them great service. The management was fair but inconsistent. The people at work were wonderful. The hardest part of the job was to keeping the energy high considering the flow of clients. The most enjoyable part was being able to serve people from all over the world, learn about better communication and the salary and benefits that come with working at Ikea.
Market Hall Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 September 2017
Worked for this company for over 14 year. Every day brought something new. The people were amazing. In sales I worked primarily with the customer, but as a high volume retailer, you learn quickly it takes many to make the business successful. Establishes a total store mentality all with the customer as the priority. For a business as large as IKEA is, they always put their people first.

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.
