I enjoy putting together Ikea Kitchens
Private Contractor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB10 October 2017
I will first read schematics and site measure to insure that the layout is accurate prior to laying out bases. I will then go over manifest and insure that the required materials are on site. I will then start building cabinets and leveling bases. One the bases are correct I will install lower cabinets and the upper cabinets.
Pros
Work at my own pace
Cons
time between jobs and an income can be hard to manage around

customer service
Service à la clientèle (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC16 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.
Pros
salary, benefits, treatment
Cons
hard work, politics

Market Hall Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB11 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.
