Pros: Amazing benefits, coworker purchase programs, meal deals, paid trainings
Cons: Time management, lack organization skills
The workload at IKEA can get hectic from time to time, but it's all worth it. At the end of the day, you're working with people that don't make it feel like work. The everyday tasks, in addition to special projects, give you the freedom to make what decision you believe are beneficial to your department, the store, and mainly, the customer. Opportunities for advancement are slower than usual. It's difficult to make time to complete trainings when you have daily routines to maintain. I've learned that time management is a huge part of how you work and what you do when you work. Management is always supportive and will actually listen to what you have to say when you have a concern. Those concerns are taken seriously and most of the time, a solution is brought forward and implemented. The most enjoyable part of my job is making sure that everything looks perfect. If everything is presentable and in the right place, I'm at peace.
