Based upon my 17 years of experience and working with companies like Nestle, Cadbury, Federal-Mogul, and Decathlon. I can say IKEA is much better. Everyone is very humble. Company is fully committed to the environment. It belongs to trust so no rat race unlike others to maximize the value of share or profit. During COVID their stores were shut down worldwide but they didn't fire anyone. If you are looking for a good work-life balance and great culture IKEA is the company. However the salary is not that great.
Work culture, work life balance, subsidized food....
Salary, people are not competent so takes time for any decision making.
They are so strict and yo can't make mistake on forklift accident and you are like another no for them as a worker they will replace you straight away if you make 3 misrakes on the floor due to there stupid pallet set up and awkward long pallet and small very light skids tipped any of the pallet 3times your out the door open wide for you

I am a social friendly person so love to solve the problem of customer so IKEA is the right place if you are people 's person.Here I learned to keep myself calm, patience when you have to deal with irritate customer. It's so fun at work and you will be so envolve at work, you will not notice how fast time flies this is the best part.
Lovely team, you get food in cheapest price.
Overall, a good experience.I made some friends and you get treated well as an employee.Some perks involved.The customers are the thing that drove me away from working there.Very rude and impatient customers.Worth working there ,if you have the patience.
Treated well as an employee
Hours are everywhere and rude/annoying customers
unless you come from one of the countries where IKEA is strong, ie the UK, Ireland etc you don't have a chance to progress managers will bring people in from Overseas before they look at local talent but they will deny it every time they sing the values but then they do what they want to get the job done
managers from Overeas - Jobs for frtiends
Company culture and pay were great, however, do not expect to receive many hours. My manager and team leader did not manage employees on checkouts (always in the office). If they made a mistake they would not acknowledge it. They would blame it on anyone else, each other, or straight up gaslight you. Every week I was rostered on openings that I was not taught on, so every week I had to message team leader to swap shifts (because they don't check rosters until the day before). Then the team leader complained that I had bad communication because I should have told him to teach me opens (even though I did). There are many more things to complain about. However, If you want to work on checkouts, do not even try to work hard. You'll be underappreciated.
discounts, cheap meals, designated lunch room and locker rooms.
Horrible management within multiple levels, zero appreciation.
Possibly the most toxic environment I’ve ever worked in. Nepotism rules here and if the management of the call centre didn’t monopolise the jobs with their family members and friends then they’d never get jobs anywhere else. Don’t do it to yourself. They’re horrid.
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
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.
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
