Self Serve Warehouse Co-worker (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC14 October 2018
IKEA is a decent place to start your work experience: friendly co-workers, cheap meals, decent discount. The problems however sometime outweigh the benefits, low pay for the amount of work you do here which leads to lack of staff because people quit and not many people will do the job for that amount of pay, management limits your rate of growth in the company (game of thrones kinda deal). All and all not a terrible place to work, but definitely has problems.
Pros
Lots of hours, new experiences, good people
Cons
low wages, poor management

Love it!
Logistics (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS5 September 2018
Just started working here. Very busy because it's the only ikea in the maritimes, and co-workers are very helpful, like a family. $4 meals for coworkers is just awesome, sometimes meals are free for special days.

Multi tasking is a must. A good skill to have. You are basically on your feet all day, first couple weeks I had nasty blisters but seems my feet got accustomed to standing/walking now so it's not as painful.
Pros
Cheap food and menu changes in Co-worker cafeteria
Cons
Standing/walking long time

It's never the same experience.
Commercial Co-Worker (Current Employee) –  London22 August 2018
Working at IKEA taught me how to be self managed but also work under a management team that cares deeply about their employees. There are no two days that are the same. The employees all get along very well. We all work towards the same goal which is good sales, happy customers and happy coworkers.
