A great company needs great people to run it. Train managers/leaders on how to lead, how to motivate and how to build their teams. It is crucial to keeping employees. We all know happy employees are more productive and innovative ,which ultimately results in winning numbers for the business. Some of the managers/leaders are brilliant at what they do but lack the skill to lead and motivate others. A employee who feels their contribution counts, that it's noticed will continue to do and do more. Honestly this is worth something to people it's almost like "pay".(dont get me wrong-pay people alittle more than other stores do-but this is important) Teach the why and how to these leaders.

Not enough staff and workload is too much since the 04g change. It is also very hard to balance your work and personal life anymore. The erratic schedules affect that a lot. They are not flexible anymore and many employees are scheduled to close the store all the time. I miss the old IKEA.

IKEA is always looking for good people. There is so much turnover, that finding a job there shouldn't be an issue. Your pregnancy shouldn't make a difference. Schedules generally are pretty flexible. You can generally work as much, or as little as your pay grade allows. If you're looking for a few extra hours, that generally isn't an issue. If you're looking to stay under 20 hours per week, that generally isn't an issue. Realize that you will be on your feet for your entire shift (less breaks and lunch).

IKEA does offer maternity leave, albeit unpaid. You will NOT lose your job when you take leave.

Good luck.

Limited advancement opportunities , 30 minute lunches, work/life balance is terrible, limited work locations, lack of training. IKEA treats all its part time employees as if they were on call like a doctor or nurses, managers don't care about your college schedule yet they love hiring part timers, meanwhile employees that don't go to college and sincerely want yo work full time will never be offered a full time job even thought position are available or the summer rush starts, do people just quit out of frustration and IKEA NA keeps adding meat to the grinder.
