Sales (Former Employee) – Ontario – 9 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.
Cash Co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 30 January 2018
Great organization that offers a lot not only to their customers but to their employees as well. Great on-boarding program, and consistent training and development. Great benefits for their employees and their families.
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.

I wish I could go back, I absolutely loved it there!!! I found everyone was on the same level. A lot of people stay there for many years. The benefits are great. You can work there in another department if you loved ones work there. Staff lounge has their own soft drink machines, and lunch is provided for staff at a discounted price. Christmas parties were so much fun.
Sales Coworker (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 13 November 2017
This company has a great workplace culture. The other employees make it a very welcoming environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with like minded colleagues. A typical day of work involved assisting customers with inquiries, making space for inventory and merchandising products.
Great Workplace culture, Health benefits (even for part timers)
Service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 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.
Restaurant attendant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 21 June 2017
Working There is great it can become hectic during the weekends due to having most of the clients being free and willing t stop by the restaurant during the weekend but everyone no matter what their job is would help. They are also ready to let you train in what you are willing to take on. The only problem is the hours are not always clear for everyone specially if you are part time.
SALES SPECIALIST & HOME FURNISHING CONSULTING (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 11 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.
Benefit package, pension plan, long term career opportunities, well organized
Ikea values customer, co-worker, and career growth
