Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: weekly pay, flexibe scheduling
Cons: short breaks, difficult work, challenging customers
IKEA has certainly cultivated a strong work ethic within me. I have learned how to work quickly as well as effectively on tasks that were given to me. Time management has proved to be a challenge in this company because my work is extremely demanding however I believe I have developed tactics to aid me in handling that issue. Completing projects with – more... my co-workers is what I cannot deny is the absolute best aspect of my job. – less

Good place to work but not in Customer Relation
Customer Relation (Current Employee), Leeds, ENGAugust 22, 2014
Pros: 15% staff discount
When I started working at Ikea, I thought it will be nice place to work, but with time when I try to develop my self as Ikea expect form us, I found a lot of problem, management and team leaders are always "busy" and can't help you, and solve your problem. You have to book holiday for a whole year ahead, and no one told us about that when we started. – more... You can get only 16h contract, and its not to much open shifts, so if you need to do full time hours like for example I need, it's not a good place for you. Working at Is easy, but when you want to provide seriously good customer service you can't because head cashiers are not picking up phones. – less

Retail. 'nuff said.
Co-worker (Current Employee), Nottingham, ENGAugust 13, 2014
Pros: free 'healthy option' food.
Cons: unengaging.
Worked in the cookshop. Job looks good on paper, but it's soul destroying, ungratifying and boring.

Productive and very fast paced job. Not that enjoyable to me.
Cashier/food service (Former Employee), New Haven,Ct.August 11, 2014
Pros: great training
Cons: short breaks, call out method/procedure
Was a okay job while completing my degree however, after graduating I didn't enjoy the job at all. Management could be so much better. Management had no respect for co workers. I remember a manager getting upset saying shut up to me at a team meeting in front of the human resources department. Overall foul job to work for doesn't really care for others – more... home life or children. Expects you to never have an emergency. – less

Very disorganised,
Co-worker (Former Employee), Milton KeynesAugust 7, 2014
Pros: nice people, free meals on shift
Cons: unorganised, no respect for contracted hours.
Co-workers were great but the management team was very unorganised. Rotas would change without notice and they don't respect your contracted hours. I would think twice before working for them again.
