Good benefit but low salary. Famous company with friendly internal environment. For Chinese staff, what they like the most is that they can work with the people from different countries.

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

SALES SPECIALIST & HOME FURNISHING CONSULTING (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 May 2017
IKEA is one of the best organizations I have had the privilege of working for. Every decision they make is thoroughly thought out and executed with little difficulty. From upper management to part time sales, everyone receives exceptional benefits package. Every role at the store level is provided with a degree of autonomy that allows each individual to feel a sense of ownership and purpose in the workplace. They are a global leader in sustainable business which is one of many reasons to feel proud that you work for the brand.
Pros
Benefit package, pension plan, long term career opportunities, well organized
Cons
Shift work

Good job to occupy yourself
Cart Organizer at Ikea Vaughan (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON1 February 2017
The job as a cart organizer is a job to do if you need some quick money. You have the freedom to work more or less hours although they will cap you at a certain point due to not wanting to pay overtime wages. It is a job to keep in between jobs because the pay is low and their is not much ambition to organize carts in a cart room. Ikea does hire from within mainly so there are many opportunities to move into a position with higher pay and benefits.
Pros
discounts on entire store
Cons
physically demanding especially in the extreme heat and extreme cold.

Fast paced and involved work environment but slow to change
Bistro & Restaurant Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON31 January 2017
Work is very straight forward with not too much change day-per-day but allows enough leeway to perform work effectively. Very heavily customer dependent and, due to general nature of IKEA, will have a great amount of customer interaction especially for questions. Management is usually quick to respond and very helpful but due to exceedingly high volume of customers at any given time they can be stretched thin. Generally a great environment to work in with great co-workers but can be taxing due to strain of volume.
Pros
High coworker involvement and praise, high advancement opportunities, good benefits, daily updated staff menu with vegetarian options, staff discounts on most products
Cons
can be very taxing both physical and mental, high volume of customers

Opinion
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 November 2016
A typical day at work is usually busy in the weekends. What I learned is that Ikea is a great company to work with because it provides good benefits. The co-workers I work with are very friendly. The hardest part of the job is having to deal with difficult customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I get complimented by the customers with my work ethic and also my good customer service.
Pros
benefits for part- time
Cons
having to stand up for long period

Dishwasher (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 October 2016
I was not happy with the amount of hours I was given, as I had to juggle my hours with work and school. Sometimes, I would just have too much work to handle for a working student.
