Customer Service (Ball-room) (Current Employee) – Burbank, CA – January 9, 2018
How to interact with a high volume of children and customers. Hardest part of the job is when its busy and we are short staffed. Replenishing items through out the store on a busy day is hard as well, but manageable.
IKEA overall is a great place to work at however career advancements are limited and a lot of positions are dead-end jobs. I enjoyed my time that I worked there (5 years) while I was in college however now I´m ready to have a job that has regular hours
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Portland – January 7, 2018
Ikea had many employees that promoted growth within the company. The work was always consitant and the flow of customers was very stable. I enjoyed working with my co-workers, and the office had an awesome cafeteria with discounted food for their employees. Ikea provides its employees with everything they need to get the job done.
Reachtruck and Electric Pallet Jack operator (Former Employee) – Westampton, NJ – January 7, 2018
Only a temporary position through another company; nice place to work; very interesting and busy; no benefits due to temporary position; learned how to unload freight that arrived on slip-sheets; the management team was very professional and helpful.
Ikea is a great company to work for. All the great health benefits and even life insurance are what comes along with being employed there. Also every employee gets a decent discount on every purchase. Not only is there great room for advancement at Ikea, it also doesn't take very long. Training in different departments on different equipment is always available.
Merchandising Co-Worker (Current Employee) – Covina, CA – January 4, 2018
Working at IKEA is great depending on what job title you have. My job title had 10x's the work as others in the store but those other positions got paid more than me. I had been there for 4 and half years and I was getting paid less than new hires who just started and they did much less and had much less knowledge.
Night Stocker (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – January 4, 2018
There is lots of stocking, it's very easy to learn. Managers are all easy to work with and the atmosphere was relaxed. Everyone is paid the same amount. During the later part of the summer it can get more chaotic, when they have K-Drop.
A Friendly and Fun Place to Work as IKEA goes the Long Way to Care for its Employees
Facility Team Lead (Former Employee) – Lebec, CA – January 3, 2018
Overall, IKEA provides the opportunity to be transparent as a Co-Worker and the opportunity to grow Professionally. It also enables one to become intimately involved with Projects given. Would Encourage Higher Management Teams to reach out more frequently to co-workers to know the potential and abilities of their co-worker teams.
Merchandiser/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Hicksville, NY – January 2, 2018
Working at ikea isn't only fun but it gives each employee to move up in the company. A regular morning at work will consist of taking care of damaged inventory. Checking up on new inventory. Displaying and showcasing new products. The most enjoyable part of my job is having an chance to decorate an department and seeing your vision come through.
