Being a cashier is stressful but the people are great
There are always customers at IKEA. There's barely any downtime so it's pretty exhausting. You'll look forward to your breaks, especially on the days where the clients are particularly rude. What makes up for it is the people you work with. Super sweet colleagues and managers. The workplace culture is inclusive and empowering (everyone is unionized).

Excellent work culture highlighted collaboration, communication, and inter-coworker support
IKEA (Burlington) made noticeable effort to ensure that every new hire felt welcomed and wanted, which carried over into day-to-day work as every team member was taken care of, and worked to help their fellow employees. Management was open, approachable, and would happily hop onto the font lines when things got busy.
Pros
Fantastic atmosphere, entire department acted as a team, mutual support, open communication
Cons
Days/Hours varied on a weekly basis;

Stressful and unfair
My experience at Ikea was extremely bad and stressful. Bad management and a horrible working environment.
Wouldn't recommend anyone to work there if they are sensitive even a bit.

Great people inhibited by some bad eggs
My experience*
Encountered some amazing people who will be friends for life, some small instances of Managerial inadequacies, bias and outright ethically questionable actions.


I put this down to people, not the company, but I do feel like the structure of management overall stopped any action being taken at a ground level.


otherwise, the community here is key, very friendly and very approachable staff, If you're planning on starting here, make friends with recovery, self serve and cash and bistro.

Pay attention to what recovery staff say to you to ease their load.


I learned valuable skills , made a lot of friends, and most importantly helped a lot of people resolve issues.

returns isn't a numbers game, its a chance for a personal encounter with resolving a customers issue. It doesn't always go to plan, but keeping the wait time low, is not always the priority.


Customers, on the other hand. In my experience have run the gambit of being violent to offering money for your exceptional level of customer service. so flexibility with people would be a key skill.


this is not a job for someone wanting to coast.

Job Culture
Communication et organisation déficientes.
Pas de mentor, tu apprends sur le tas, au début tu es souvent laissé à toi même, beaucoup de frustrations et d'iniquité parmi les collaborateurs.La formation sur le plancher est déficiente. Les outils de travail, si ils ne sont pas déficients ou limités, tu cours après constamment, la définition des tâches est aléatoires ou inexistantes. Les chefs de service et adjoint bien qu'ils font ce qui est possible semblent trop occupés pour communiquer les informations et les directives etc. efficacement et clairement. Cela repose essentiellement sur les épaules des collaborateurs et de leurs expériences ou non et le système informatique pas toujours fiable.La manipulation des marchandises très lourdes devient un danger, par la force des choses, tu es souvent seul pour la manipuler alors qu' il faut être deux. IKEA est une bonne école pour les novices du marché du travail. On peut aimé son travail mais dans ces conditions le plus agréable c'est quand ta journée est fini.

Well rounded workforce and work place
Good organization with reasonable expectations. If you put in an honest days work then you are rewarded. Integrity and trust are the most important aspects as an employee. IKEA does offer a good and safe work environment.

Pas pour moi!
J'ai eu affaire à une superviseur qui n'était pas correcte. Je me sentais comme une enfant qui ne fait jamais rien correctement.

Short term job
Follow the rules, be vocal, but don't criticize too much. Don't expect you will change something. Give a lot of smiles, make a lot of work-friends. You will have forever job security and one day soon you will become a manager. Company with amazing global initiatives, falling short on local levels.

Fast paced, high quality place to work
If collaboration, teamwork, and tons of red tape to move forward, are what you seek, then IKEA is for you. The co-workers have all the power, and the Management gets treated unfairly. Very European work environment, with tons of everyday perks. Coworkers are overworked and underpaid, the Management of various levels are treated differently, depending on tenure, and if you are in the clique. It takes a team to put IKEA back together everyday, and the Logistics, Recovery, teams get overlooked. ITS ALL ABOUT THE SALES TEAM.
