Server/Cashier (Former Employee), Coquitlam, BCMarch 20, 2014
I wasn't there long due to it only being go to work with a parent week, but the entire time I was there, it was amazing. the costumers were amazing and always fun to talk to. and the crew was so fun, we were always laughing and teaching each other new things. a day working with Ikea while I was there would be to go where ever the manager had sent me. – more... I would serve costumers with their food, and as they are always busy you needed great speed. hardest part of the job, running around and doing a few duties at once and you had to be quick on your feet. – less

Honest, Hardworking and can work under minimal supervision
Cook (Current Employee), Riyadh, S01January 24, 2014
Pros: free meals, accommodation and transportation
Cons: break time
We cook in larges volume/quantity.

I learned to cook variety of cuisines like Indian, and Arabic.

I'm a shift in-charge It depend on my schedule every month,because we have task for the whole months.

I love working with them because they are happy person and hardworking that create an enjoyable workplace that you can come to work everyday that you – more... can smile in the end of the day.

Cooking is my passion, so the hardest part of my job is when I fail myself to not grow and learn in the end of the day. And to cook without your heart in it.

When your co-workers tell you how nice and good you are not just in cooking but also with relationship with co-workers that make you feel that they love as person in the workplace. Because my accomplishment is when they are to tell you how good you are, and you will always remember as that kind of person "being simple". – less

Good work, messy managment.
Receiving team support manager (Former Employee), Winnipeg ManitobaSeptember 10, 2013
Pros: cheap staff luches
Cons: messy managment
I was a support manager for the warehouse at Ikea and I enjoyed it. BUT it came as a surprise I wasn't aware of being a manager for a few months and never really got management training on the side. I had the training to use equipment to teach other employees and little training on how to use the trailer programs on the computer I more or less taught – more... my self through manuals there. It was a new store and I expected it to be hectic and I was patient. Even put in lots of OT 12 hour days. In the end I got canned for a small issue of letting a trainee drive on his own around others for a hour on a forklift which is how I was trained. But they didn't fire me on the spot they needed me there they kept me for a month and out of the blue they let me go I had no clue and it really messed things up for me. I hope management is a lot better I hear one of my old friends there moved up and we trained together as managers so I'm glad to see him moving up even though he din't really want to. As goes their Culture, they have a "strong" one and it really got to me saying they look out for their employees and so on and at first it was great I got to go to Vancouver for a month all expenses payed. But then they really dint care about us warehouse people we were like the dogs of the company. Always pressuring us to work very long hours and never getting rewards.and when they dropped me like a bag of bricks that shows that the company is kinda slimy. – less

The best possible retail position
After-Sales Coworker (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 7, 2013
Pros: employee lunch discounted, friendly staff
Ikea clearly values their employees, they treat everyone from janitorial staff to managers with the same level of respect.
I feel that in my time at Ikea my efforts were appreciated and recognized.
The team itself is tightly knit and friendly, and management is typically positive and eager to assist.
