Still a great company!
Team Leader (Former Employee), College Park, MDJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: great hiring within!
Cons: assets protection stinks.
Although I was let go from this company for a completely dumb reason, all because of a signature verification, this place is an amazing and awesome place to work. Great benefits, compensation, recognizes it's coworkers extremely well, and the promotion from within is just awesome. Loved working here and wish I were still there!

Delivery Truck Driver & assembly (Former Employee), Merriam, KSJanuary 18, 2015
Pros: enjoyed it, something good to wake up to each morning knowing that a had a good job to go to
Cons: communication
At IKEA I greeted people, went to their house and assembled their purchases.

I learned that if you put your mind to anything, you can do it. I never thought I could do what I did in learning to put things together.

The hardest part of my job was starting something I knew nothing about.

The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people

Head Cashier (Current Employee), Sunrise FLJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: felxibility, advancement, environment
Cons: political.
Ikea's philosophy and culture positively drive the staff. Their open door policy allows for honest and effective communication. In addition, each individual employee has a "development plan". Here, they sit with their direct supervisor and not just discuss, but implement actions towards a growing career at Ikea. Because of this procedure, I myself have different levels of education on multiple departments. Thusly, they keep us informed with business plans, domestically and internationally, as well as request feedback.

Overall, a family is built out of employees there. Hostility between co-workers is rare.

Details on Cons: Higher end positions seem to be granted to those who are "obligated" to the title as opposed to those who truly deserve it.

Aftersales Advisor (Former Employee), Nottingham,MDDecember 21, 2014
Pros: healthcare benefits, co workers, close to mall
Typical day at work of a Aftersales Advisor consist of taking calls from customers with multiple problems. Anything that a average customer service representative could handle. as far as the "IKEA Way" of things. The management team SUCKS. it mostly consist of who like who more or whose friends with who. Your work ethic means nothing at IKEA, you can be the worst problem solver and still surpass a qualified candidate for promotion! This job would be a lot easier or work better if the whole HR and Management team were replaced. There is more I could say about this unethical company, But I do not want to waste any more of my time..

As a cashier at IKEA i was required to handle a minimum of 34 customers an hour,my average was 38-45.IKEA helped me in retail alot because it made me become more effective faster.My supervisors were awesome! they were hands on and informative and showed a great deal of respect.My co-workers were even better i've developed great relationships even 2 years after i ended my tenure there.The hardest part was getting a feel for everything in the beginning and keeping up a steady pace.The most enjoyable part was my co-workers and having the customers leave with a smile on there face

Commercial Swedish Food Market & Bistro Asst. mgr (Current Employee), AtlantaDecember 17, 2014
A typical day at IKEA is opening the store starting your routines, preparing for the customers, I have learned a lot about sales, how to sale steer your product etc. The coworkers are the best and the most enjoyable part of a typical day at this store. The hardest part of the day is dealing with a difficult customer.

I really loved working for Ikea. I got to learn a lot about the Swedish Culture as well as work with great customers and managers. Unfortunately I had to leave because there were no full time jobs available in my department.

Cashier (Current Employee), Elizabeth,NJDecember 12, 2014
One morning i came to work and we had 2 call outs. i took it upon myself to close the staff cafe for the day and send the employee to the restaurant and serve the customers. I figured they would rather lose $3. from employees than to lose more money from a valuable customer.

A typical day at work I would do inventory in the morning. Also help customers. I worked in the lighting and storage department so I would help people find the right storage systems for their needs. My manager was nice and understanding if I needed a day off or asked for more hours.
