Working for IKEA was great.
Food Services Manager/Bistro Manager (Former Employee), Burlington, ONMay 9, 2014
I learned a lot working for IKEA. They are all about training which I soaked up all I could. I liked the most of the work but it was getting to be more office type work. I am a hands on type of worker and enjoy working with the public. My job description at IKEA was changing to more business (preparing business plans, hiring, firing, and scheduling – more... ect.) and less hands on. I much rather be in the kitchen helping out then in an office doing paper work. – less

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

Pros: good salary and flexible hours for students.
