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.

Sorry, I worked in the Ikea warehouse, not in the retail store. I think you would be able to learn more about the opportunities they have to offer by visiting their careers website.

During busier times, depending on what location you apply for, you will work more than 19 hours. You should be honest about your pregnancy, they hire females that are pregnant all the time, its about your qualifications. Also they do offer maternity leave and it is paid, I took it when I had my child and it was for three months. Hope this info helps!!

There are HL1, HL2, & HL3 positions. The HL1 position makes around 10.50-11.25 and 12-20 hours a week. If you let your manager know you would like to pick up some extra hours they will most likely allow it. While I was working there they hired someone who was around six months pregnant, she worked about a month then left on maternity leave and came back to work not too long after. I believe maternity leave is paid for.

Yes they have hours that suits your needs I worked with a lot of school students and they worked it ot. The only low end job there would be cashier and even that job there lifting. My opinon is to tell the truth about your being pregnant is a good thing. I think they do have great insurance package dont remember the full details. Congradulation on your bundle of joy May God Continue To Bless you
