Cash Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 August 2013
IKEA is a fun, interesting and unique work environment. Co-workers and management are treated like equals and the environment is reasonably calm for a retail setting. I learned a lot about the inner workings of a large retail store like this, how the cash on hand is handled and how the store compiles, stores and reports it's flow of money. The hardest part of the job was very clearly getting used to the very dated way of running their batch reports every morning. But after a couple weeks of training and repeatedly going through the process myself, I eventually got used to it. My favorite and most enjoyable part of the job was working in an office environment and the daily interactions with all of the wonderful people that work there. It truly is a great place to work and I'm very thankful that I had the opportunity to be there.

I decided to work for Ikea during my studies for a particular reason; its involvement with the UN. Other than its remarkable eco friendly policies as well as its sustainable goals, its contribution and partnership with the UNHCR to provide shelter, care, education, and energy to refugees in Asia, Africa and the Middle East made me feel comfortable working for a company that shared the same values as I did.
