Very friendly environment and got a chance for different new experience. It is work working in IKEA with very friendly managers and team leaders. you feel like you are working in a family. Everyone there work with a good work ethics .
5.5 years of my life I want to forget. Worse management team of any employer I have had in my working life. Profit profit profit is there sole concern. Underpaid overtime over three month period then blacklisted with hours cut when you challenge them about it. Bullied on a daily basis for having the audacity to stand up for your rights. Never been more happy to leave a job.
It was an amazing place to work and Ikea gave me a very go work life balance. They were very understanding when it came to shifts and holidays/sick time. i would recommend to anyone looking for a job in retail.
Large workplace means lots of opportunities to make friends. Working with awesome people makes this a great place to work
Busy fast-paced environment. There is never a boring day.
Long opening hours means lots of opportunities for shifts for those with flexible working hours. However, the working hours can also be unfriendly for family and social life.
- management chose where you sat when you’d walk in for your shift
-you’d get in trouble for laughing,sneezing,talking in between calls you would litterally get a warning
- calling in sick you’d get a warning
- eating at your desk is forbidden if you do warning
-HR can’t do their job, when there was a aboriginal discrimination in the workplace they did nothing about it and swept to under the rug
- great co-workers
Worked in the Call Centre. Great place tp work when I first started however in the last 2 years and in 2019, there is a no culture and management is useless. The department is run like a prison where everything is micro-managed including your toilet breaks, There is no worker or job development so little chance of progressing. No transparency but lots of favouritism.
Coworker (Former Employee) - Marsden Park NSW - 28 November 2019
I worked in the recovery department and found myslef handling many responibilites at once. We were low on staff but I don't beleive that is an excuse for me to be on my own for 5 hours on some shifts. Very stressful. Managers are nice on the first day but the majority of them are on a power trip.
Lunch is cheap and very nice but even then, the checkout coworker will disapear - very frustrating.
If you're able to advance in IKEA let me know. I was told that there was but was never in a position to advance.
Managers love to point out flaws and rarely appreciate the work that you do.
Availabilty is sometimes ignored and multiple closing to openning shifts are exhausting and stressful.
I would not reccomend working here if you wish to advance and if you are passionate about working hard. You end up chasing your own tail and never get any support.
Definitely would not recommend wiring at Ikea as its team members at the time were very rude and loud people, demanding things all the time, when on my break they'd sometimes get me to come back in which I never said no but was cutting into my break times. overall just a poor environment for me at the time.
