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.

Trying to get things built before the store opens. You need to know your IKEA. Or cleaning up at the end of a busy and messy day.
