Busy environment but everyday is different with lots to learn . They give you opportunities to cross train in different departments so you are able to grow within the company

Everyone has opportunities to grow if you put the effort in to steering your personal direction. This is a necessary part of every co-workers annual focus. IKEA has a saying: When you grow, IKEA grows.

Restaurant attendant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON21 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.
Pros
Cheap lunch and reductions on purchase
Cons
Shifts Management

Part Time Coworker (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB30 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.
Pros
Fun environment, fast paced, cheap food
Cons
Busy, independent work

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 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.
Pros
cheap lunch, good perks
Cons
customers

SALES SPECIALIST & HOME FURNISHING CONSULTING (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 May 2017
IKEA is one of the best organizations I have had the privilege of working for. Every decision they make is thoroughly thought out and executed with little difficulty. From upper management to part time sales, everyone receives exceptional benefits package. Every role at the store level is provided with a degree of autonomy that allows each individual to feel a sense of ownership and purpose in the workplace. They are a global leader in sustainable business which is one of many reasons to feel proud that you work for the brand.
Pros
Benefit package, pension plan, long term career opportunities, well organized
Cons
Shift work
