just another day at work, managers weren't the best, didnt really care about the workers in the department unless you were able to do something for them, then they would be friendly

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CAJanuary 24, 2017
Had a great experience working at Ikea. My employees were great and this place had a nice diversity of workers. Management was awesome as well and they even came to help us when were kinda slammed. The hours were great and they offered overtime if you needed.

Misleading
Self Serve Coworker (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJanuary 16, 2017
Alright place to work at first. Decent benefits. Forget about weekends off. You'll never see the sunshine again. Don't expect advancement. They promote who they want instead of who is qualified and deserving. Most the managers are lazy and make the coworkers do all the hard work. Coworkers are underpaid and the pay scales need to be seriously evaluated. I will not miss this place when I leave aside from the other great coworkers I have met.
Pros
dicounts on meals, PTO, sick time.
Cons
poor wages, work every weekened, poor management

Key Roles and Responsibilities
HOME DECOR ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJanuary 12, 2017
To be polite and courteous to customers at all times and to provide information on products, prices, measurements.
To help maximize sales & achieve sales targets.
Doing regular spot checks on pricing and other communications.
To fulfill the department KPI’s such as sales steering towards out of stock, concrete stock, overstock, outgoing & discontinued articles
Maintain an awareness of all promotions and advertisements. I learned how to fill out discrepancy forms, created displays, created RL and P- Tags, building shelves and walls, make room for new shipment. The enjoyable moments at IKEA is when they're customers in need that does not know about a item and i assist them with descriptive information. During the day we were given certain task to do at certain times in the day and to make sure those tasks were met. In the beginning the hardest part of the day was complete 3 to 4 pages of truck notes before next truck notes and task but the truck notes will get completed on time.
Pros
High co-workers appreciation, bonuses, hours when available
Cons
lack of hours, unprofessional

Ikea can be a great company to work for. The pay and benefits are more than adequate for a career in retail, and the bond between coworkers can be healthy and strong.

Very Poor management
Co-Worker (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJanuary 8, 2017
Company has great policies, however at a managerial level it falls apart. Less revenue areas are left mostly to fend for themselves, unable to obtain necessary equipment for day to day jobs.

HR virtually unreachable depending on where you are working. Schedules are never accurate and lunch can even be denied if store is in busiest season.
Pros
Good pay for retail
Cons
Short breaks, ignored by management, hr hard to reach

Work environment is fantastic, work life balance is good. You have flexible time e.g come early- leave early as you talked to your manager. It's a great company to work with.

SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 5, 2017
Ikea was a very organized company that offered tremendous benefits. Trainings go step by step, and into detail, so the worker feels confident in all aspects of the job. Every employee is held at a standard where they are expected to respect each other regardless of any differences.
Pros
discount lunches, private large breakroom, great vacation benefits
Cons
overcrowding can be overwhelming

Cashier, Sales (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJanuary 4, 2017
A typical day at work can be very busy, the inflow of customers can reach an astounding amount. Every coworker is trained to be efficient and to help one another in achieving the goals set for the day. The only downside is the management, they like to pick favorites and don't really communicate well with the coworkers.
