Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IKEA in June 2009.

Interview Details – The call was made early in the morning and when I didn't answer they left a message. When I called back later on around noon no one would answer and I mad to leave a message. I would call back every couple days but every time no one would answer. I finally received an email saying the position I applied for was filled.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IKEA in September 2010.

Interview Details – First there was a telephone interview where they asked about me and my experience/availabilities/why i want to work in IKEA. Then they emailed for a group interview the day after, and there we had to first introduce the person next to us, then in the second part we had to build a box and then sell it to the group observers and then we had a test which was matching products codes to names. And then each of us had a one on one interview which was jus like a normal interview
