It was a nice place to work
Replenishment Specialist (Former Employee), East Palo Alto, CAFebruary 28, 2015
Pros: employee discount
Cons: short breaks
IKEA was a fun and interesting place to work. I really enjoyed my job. I'm sorry that my employment ended so quickly. My position was seasonal and temporary. The best part of the job was I got to see the new merchandise that was going to be sold. Sorry to say there was nothing hard about my job. My co-workers were encouraging, supportive and fun to work with. I learned to pay attention to detail, and I also learned how to multi task and work in a fast paced environment .

Fun and Enjoyable
Sales/Cashier (Former Employee), Schaumburg, ILFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: employees and being taken care of
I worked with this company for 6 1/2 years and it was the best time. The employees were great and so was management. Employees were taken care of and they made sure the employees were happy where they were at. They really cared! It also had you work close with customers and be able to make their experience a fun time.

Stressful / Large workload for a 40 hour work week
Kitchen Production Team Lead (Former Employee), Bloomington, MNFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: constant change of strategy and no consistency. demanding
The job of KPTL was very demanding and stressful. A lot of work that should be done by Human Resources was being completed by the KPTL. They kept adding on new programs or procedures and would not allow overtime. There should of been an administrative position within the food part of the business ! Unfair expectations.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: flexibility to work in different departments

My typical day at work consisted of assembling all types of furniture, such as couches, cabinets, lamps, bookshelves etc. I liked meeting and interacting with my peers and customers, which helped me to increase my knowledge of the company and increase my ability to complete projects in a timely manner. I also liked communicating and meeting people from different nationalities. This position helped me to grow and acquire new skills from different departments.

Great place to work
Home Shopping Advisor (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: building a great repore with customers
Cons: working until midnight
I worked as a Home Shopping advisor for IKEA many years ago. Before I was promoted, I was a kitchen designer for the US. That experience awarded me the chance to work with amazing customers by designing their kitchen, home, office, and some new home developments. My other responsibilities included returns, after sales, and escalations.

Smaland Coworker/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: good amenities
Cons: snakes in the grass
The Ikea environment was fairly pleasant. My co-workers were friendly and everyone looked out for one another. Management is mediocre, but I blame it on the size of the company; there's always alot going on. I did learn alot from working with such a large company. Patience, teamwork, and understanding of others.

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
