I don't really have anything particular to point out as negative. It has just been my growth has been stunted and if in the right position you can grow, and if not, it is a bit more challenging.

Still a number
Sales (Former Employee) –  Ontario9 February 2018
This company treats you like a number and nothing like a person.
They preach pillars, value statements and a review process (30,60,90) are they actually practiced?
In my experience they dont provide you with any of this not even expectations
I could go on and on but what's the point, my recommendation learn what you can and ask for your review process and protect yourself.
Pros
Free drinks/$4 lunch, pay and benifits
Cons
The way they treat people

Not the Best, Could be Worse
Self-serve sales associate (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC18 January 2018
Working at IKEA is a great part-time job, as they value being open and friendly, the management is approachable, and benefits are decent. It takes a lot of multi-tasking since there are often many customers, but also a lot of daily tasks to complete alongside that.

Must be a teamwork place
Warehouse Co-Worker (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 December 2017
I've learned how to deal with co-workers in terms of how to work efficiently and to deal with the pressure of work.
In terms of management, It comes to the manager; how he/she treat his/her workers. If he/she shows appreciation of the little things that his/her employees, and that is a good management.
There is no hardest job, if there is team work.
Most Enjoyable part of the job is to meet new friends and learned something new.
Pros
incentives and benifits
Cons
Jealous between employees at work

Christmas parties were so much fun.
Pros

Not enough staff sometimes
