Great experience working there
I had I good time working there. Really good and collaborative team. It could be a bit slow to move with projects. But good place to work in overall.

Chilled out workplace with great food and enough departments to keep you from being bored. Management is really nice and supportive.
IKEA is a great place to work. The management is not overbearing and demanding. They do get annoyed if they have to babysit, so if you can take responsibility for your work, then you are fine. The upper management is awesome, very nice and supportive, they come and talk to you on the floor explaining what's going on and what you are doing good even if you are a cleaner.On shift food was discounted by like 70% so breakfast and lunch was good to have. All other items have a good discount too, I think around 20%. So you can shop and fill your house with IKEA stuff.The atmosphere is very reserved and there aren't many people who are up for hanging out after their shifts for a beer or 2. People working there for 5 years don't know if their co worker have kids or not. Don't expect there are trivia nights or something.No complains though. A good workplace with a chilled out atmosphere and lots of different shifts available.

Stayed longer than needed for the people I worked with.
Ikea was a company that gave me a chance when others wouldn't so I felt that I always owed them. However as my health deteriorated things went downhill. As covid hit I followed their rules regarding not coming in with symptoms however was put on a performance plan for "getting sick too much". They would preach about the values but never showed it, where was togetherness when I was put into a meeting and suggested I come into work when I'm sick? The only thing that kept me there were my fellow coworkers.

Best place to work
Good career and personal support. Great coworkers to work with. Good pay and benefits. Job can be full on and physical but the management understand if you have limitations. They also support inclusivity and diversity. So much programs you can participate to advance your career. Public holiday can be a bit overwhelming as the customers are pouring in but the teamwork make it more bearable.

Great company shame about the management in departments not store
Great company to work for .Exciting,fun,new challenges but mangers and teamleader need to be shafted for new and a brighter outlook as the ones who have been there for some years are too comfortable and forgot the IKEA values .Co workers are treated by them like second class citizens.Not so family anymore.

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.
