This place can be very stressful. Taking time off is very restrictive. Pay does not seem competitive.

Great Benefits / Horrible Work Environment
Co-Worker (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMay 23, 2018
I would say the benefits are great - the rest, not so much.

The work environment is horrible. Leaders are inexperienced & very immature. No one is held accountable for anything and if you do try to hold someone accountable - you end up in "the wrong".

Hard work is not valued here. It seems like the ones slacking move up while the ones who work non stop get nowhere. You must either conform to "the ikea way" or you get nowhere in the company.

Experience is not needed - you can just lie your way into a position. Nor is education valued. You can have 12 years of education and someone with 2 years experience will still make more than you.

Great place to shop, not work.

Good place to work
Customer Service Leader/Cash Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAMay 23, 2018
I start my shift that I am scheduled to. Once the store is open helping customers, ringing on the registers. Help customer with issue and also help load/unload item when needed.

Doing the reconciliation if one is open. It is always fast pace environment.

The people are great and from all over the world and it is fun to.
