Sales Co-Worker in North Lakes QLD

Good Retail workplace, but be prepared to say goodbye to work/life balance.
In terms of big box Retail, IKEA makes a solid argument in terms employability for the following reasons:- Generous leave entitlements- Okay pay for a Level 1 Co Worker, great pay for higher tier co-workers- Heavily discounted lunches- Great "opportunities" for growth (in different departments or onwards to management)However be aware that:- The company will talk about how people are its greatest asset, but it's a blatant front. You will work when IKEA wants you to work; whether that is by cutting your hours, or making you work 3/4 weekends. Their financial bottom-line outweighs any sort of employee satisfaction- The company will milk your initiative. If you put your hand up to take on extra responsibilities, they will happily pile them on you without a pay-rise, and if they decide they like you being in a particular department after being cross-trained (it makes them more money), you will be permanently put there despite your original placement, even if it's against your will.- 3/4 weekends is a requirement in most roles- False promises of progressionBe mindful of the above. If you are willing to dedicate your life to the business then you may find yourself in a great career with a good pay packet, if you're lucky. You just need to be willing make some sacrifices to get there. The IKEA workplace if very cliquey to the point of cultish, so just keep that in mind.

It was the best time i had working in IKEA, Tempe, Sydney
I felt delighted to work with IKEA team from 2011 to 2013. It was wonderful journey and I was started to believe myself while working. I feel confident to test my skills. I wish I could go back and work again for IKEA. Certainly, A Great Place to Work, I missed a lot.

Terrible. Don't do it
Used to be good. Now money money money. Terrible culture and our department essentially self serve so most of staff have gone and people lost their jobs.

Fun place to work
Good environment to work in with many great people, management could be better and the pay is quite low for the job. Great for people new to the industry.

Incredible work place.
The best workplace I’ve ever been the privilege of being apart of. This company is so far ahead of others.The incredibly dynamic and unique culture at IKEA is almost overwhelming, it’s just so unusual to find such a workplace actually exists in this world.

Interview Questions

Group interviews is a way for recruiters to observe how you interact with other people, identify if you are a team player and work well with others to find a solution or complete a task set...it will also show them if you are outgoing..a leader -type personality...friendly...or shy... Some questions I have been asked....what makes you unique? How would your friends describe you? If you were an animal, what would you be and why? What motivates you? What does success mean to you? Where do you see yourself in five years? If you could go back in time 5 years, what would you change? Describe a situation where there was conflict at work between co-workers, how did you deal with it? Describe a situation where you had to make a tough decision, how was it received? Most of the questions are designed to get a better picture or understanding about the "real you". Your resume is just a factual document...interview is where your personality, honesty and integrity as a human should shine through. Best of luck with job hunting.

I want to work in Ikea because I have an ecperience in selling furnitures and appliances. I think I am suitable for Ikea because I have been in selling for 2 years and this is the job that makes me happy working and dealing with other people in different culture and languages.
