Cashier (Former Employee) – Elizabeth, NJ – July 19, 2018
Okay was overall a good work place and very fast paced. It taught time management and enforces customer service. Many opportunities and gives you the chance to work your way up throughout company. Provided product knowledge with training session. If you are in school and need a part time this work place is great for you.

They are very strict about their attendance policy, but are usually very good about their trainings. You can ask for additional training, and they will usually try and give you them when they can. You can approach managers with questions and get honest answers.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – July 18, 2018
If you're a cashier, good luck, most of the time you spend your day in one spot standing with very minimal movement for a good 5-6 hours if no one remembers your break. Breaks are 15 min and lunch is 30, no chance to relax. Job would've been okay with a stool of some sort to relax when slow but not even that. Also favoritism does happen, so good luck.
OPENING/CLOSING CASHIER (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – July 8, 2018
Continuously busy, fast paced work environment, friendly team mates, there were at times a disconnect between human resources and employees, the area in which we live the average person would need to work 2 full time jobs to afford rent.

IKEA was a learning experience. Since working there my customer service skills have bettered and I was happy with the company and all they offered. IKEA accepts anyone for who they are and never mistreats you.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – June 1, 2018
While retail may not seem like a lot of work, the new organization policy they put in place last year made the amount you get paid not equal to amount of work expected. On top of that, there is drama with workers.
Cashier (Former Employee) – East Palo Alto, CA – May 21, 2018
I really enjoyed working for the company IKEA. I enjoyed working with my co-workers everyone is really down to earth, everyone likes to work as a team, and the managers are really friendly and are there to help when needed. I like that there are fast paced days and there are also slow days.
Restaurant Cashier (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 7, 2018
Ikea used to be a fun place to work, but as I spent more time there you started to realize how they push workers out the door. Good luck moving up in the company because they would rather hire outside employees than their own.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 18, 2018
Taught team work and had very good management. Paid time off were given to part time employees as well as sick time. Workplace felt safe and catered to employees needs. My duties involved cashiering and stocking the restaurant, as well as helping other areas when needed.
Food Cashier (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – March 22, 2018
While they talk about good work/home life, the managers do not help out co-workers when needed. Co-workers are always bickering and complaining to managers or HR instead of working together. There is a blatant favoritism culture in that workplace. They will not hire people when needed and will work their employees dry until everyone is too stressed.
Recovery and Cashier (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – March 21, 2018
Working as a cashier was stressful but management was always helpful and coworkers were more than willing to give advice and help where they could. In recovery it was a lot less stressful but still a fast paced job that kept me moving.
Returns Cashier (Former Employee) – College Park, MD – March 20, 2018
I liked working there but it could get overwhelming when it got busy and rhe lack of managers on duty to come help u with customer issues. Its nice that they have a food and relaxing area for emplyeses in the break room and locker rooms.
Sick/Leave and vacation time for all employees needed
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Merriam, KS – March 5, 2018
It would be a good first job for some students in high school. I enjoyed the people I worked with and got to know. But, when you are told that you will paid a certain amount, and then told it wasn't going to happen after the store is up and running, it kind of makes you a little irritated.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Hicksville, NY – February 13, 2018
When i worked at ikea I was jet a freshman in college and it was my first real job as a cashier. Ikea opened the door for me in which as a cashier handling big items and dealing with customers through out the day
Cashier (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – January 31, 2018
Cashiers never get a break. It's always hammered busy; in part because we're always understaffed; and the situation is exacerbated by the fact that most of the registers lack basic supplies, (pens, staples), and we're not allowed to keep receipt paper with us, so we have to go hunting for it when we run out.
