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.

LOVED working here
Activities Team leader (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 December 2017
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.
Pros

Cons
Not enough staff sometimes

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.

customer service
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

Productive and fun
Restaurant attendant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON21 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.
Pros
Cheap lunch and reductions on purchase
Cons
Shifts Management

Standout business with phenomenal benefits
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

Best place to work for. They absolutely care about their staff members. Good place for advancement! Pay is below average, but the lunches and staff discount make up for that.
