Love it
Bistro Co-Worker (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON16 June 2018
The job is great, some managers can be a little troublesome but that is very dependent on the department and both personalities of manager/coworker. There can be some drama with coworkers but there's more than 200 so that's bound to happen. Great company to work for overall though.
Pros
Ethical Values
Cons
Seniority Rules

Food Services Worker (Current Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QC5 June 2018
Everyone will treat you nicely and it has a lot of benefits, maybe the pay its a little low at the beginning but over time it will increase. The store its kinda far from downtown.

Unpleasant experience
Receiving Operator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 May 2018
Manager was an active bully. The hours were quite punishing, and the culture seemed to contrast the reality of the situation. Did not enjoy my experience at all.

Beaucoup de travail, mais agréable
Collaborateur au recouvrement (Former Employee) –  Boucherville, QC3 May 2018
Ikea est un magasin très populaire, ce qui fait en sorte que la charge de travail peut sembler parfois excessive. Cependant, il est agréable d'y travailler en équipe.

Excellent place to work
Range Responsible (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 May 2018
Clock in .Proceed to floor, boot up computer at work station check incoming stock lists ensure sufficient space is available for product to be shelved. Do inter department job assignments for the day. do follow ups all day to verify that this is being done in a timely and orderly manner. Assist customers. Review afternoon product items being delivered for overnight fills and prepare space for all. All coworkers are involved with prep.
Management is amazing and always there for coworkers.
Being able to work with people from all over the planet was exciting and educational.
The hardest part of the job was trying to not take work issues home with you. ie: sales that were coming up, did you finish all the paper work, product ordering, etc.
Pros
Constently learning new things
Cons
Sometime short on staff, taking on thier work.

fun place to work at for the most part
Carts CoWorker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 April 2018
Most Enjoyable part of the job was that your coworkers are very friendly and also hard working.
a typical day at work for me was mostly slow during the week from Monday to Thursday but from Friday to Sunday would be very fast pace job on the weekends.
The hardest part about the job was having to help people who are very rude to you for no reason.
the Management was okay my team lead was the best but Management wasn't really up to par with most things with my department.
Pros
sometimes free lunches
Cons
dont get much help majority of the time
