God help you if you want to move up
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  North York, ON19 October 2018
The work is fine, the co-workers are cool, and the health coverage is great.

Half of the customers don't know what they want, and the other half wants a personal shopper.

If you plan on moving up in the store, make sure you suck up to every one above you. If there is a job openings they usually have some one in mind while posting the job.

Good people, good stability
Self Serve Warehouse Co-worker (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC14 October 2018
IKEA is a decent place to start your work experience: friendly co-workers, cheap meals, decent discount. The problems however sometime outweigh the benefits, low pay for the amount of work you do here which leads to lack of staff because people quit and not many people will do the job for that amount of pay, management limits your rate of growth in the company (game of thrones kinda deal). All and all not a terrible place to work, but definitely has problems.
Pros
Lots of hours, new experiences, good people
Cons
low wages, poor management

Yep
Chef d'équipe (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC23 September 2018
It is not what is used to be.
Overload of work with constant stress on productivity ...it is becoming Amazon in a way.
Salary is not lower then the surround but for the extremly hight rate of visitors that ikea gets it is low

Love it!
Logistics (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS5 September 2018
Just started working here. Very busy because it's the only ikea in the maritimes, and co-workers are very helpful, like a family. $4 meals for coworkers is just awesome, sometimes meals are free for special days.

Multi tasking is a must. A good skill to have. You are basically on your feet all day, first couple weeks I had nasty blisters but seems my feet got accustomed to standing/walking now so it's not as painful.
Pros
Cheap food and menu changes in Co-worker cafeteria
Cons
Standing/walking long time

Logistics Specialist (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON28 February 2018
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. I have learned a great deal working here such as everyday values, becoming more sustainable as an individual and team oriented as a worker.
