Recovery Co-Worker Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Canton, MI
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Canton, MI
Application Details

The process took a day - interviewed at IKEA in December 2011.

Interview Details

I was asked a lot of IKEA values questions. Basically if you answer the question with the same ikea value mentioned in the question, your golden. They love it if you know the ikea values and all that stuff. Most managers avoid those questions because they know that you can just recite the ikea hand book to them. My interview went really well. I didnt get the position because someone already in the recovery department wanted the position.

    Recovery Co-Worker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IKEA in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I came in when they had a hiring event and was part of a group interview. When the person in charge of the group interview asked what everyone wanted to do at IKEA, all the people who said "I don't know" or "Anything" were told they could leave and would get a call if any positions opened up. Of the people that were sent home, I know 2 who got called back and worked at the register.

    I told the interviewer that I wanted to build furniture and like working with my hands. She then sent me to another room to interview with an HR co-worker. After I passed that interview, she told me that the Recovery Manager will call me to schedule another interview.

    About a week later, I came to interview with the department manager. After that I went downstairs to do skills test in which I was timed and observed. I built a book shelf, a chair, and drawer unit.

    A week after that, they called me in for a job offer.

    Negotiation Details
    It was my second job, so negotiating wasn't really on the top of my list. Note that IKEA is VERY stubborn about their raises, they are almost non negotiable.
