I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IKEA.
Interview Details – I initially had a phone interview which went successful and thus was invited to the hiring event. During the hiring event, about 10 IKEA managers were there to explain what and who IKEA was. Then we were separated into two groups and had to build a bridge that was strong enough to hold up a few IKEA catalogs. After that individual manager came and took the people who had applied for there department and sent others home who didn't make the cut. Then came the one on one interviews with you potential department managers.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IKEA.
Interview Details – I filled out an online application about a week before I got a call from one of the managers. He asked me to come in for an interview that next day. I went in and filled out another paper application form. I was interviewed by a manager in the bath section who wanted to hire me in his area (keep in mind I have no experience in that area whatsoever). The interview took about an hour, maybe longer including filling out the paper application. He told me he would call me by that next week and that he's planning to hire around memorial day(3 weeks away), but instead I got a call the next day to do some more paperwork and then to start me off in the next couple of days. I took the drug test during my interview as well, it was a saliva drug test, nothing that difficult.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IKEA in May 2013.
Interview Details – Filled out the application on line. About a week later, I was given a call by one of the managers at Ikea. He asked me to come in for an interview that next day. When I showed up, I was asked to fill out a paper application as well. He called me back and it was the basic interviews questions. I ended up doing a drug test then and there. It was a saliva drug test, so nothing too difficult. He told me he would give me a call in a week and that he was hiring for the end of may(3 weeks from then). I got a call the next day from a lady in HR and asked me to come in that Monday to fill out more paperwork and to start on Tuesday instead. They have two days of orientation, and it really gets you use to their values and their store policies. It also helps you get use to their store a little better since it is HUGE.
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating.
I applied through college or university - interviewed at IKEA in April 2013.
Interview Details – Interview was fairly simple. First, was a phone interview that lasted only 15 minutes. There was then an in person interview with two team leaders. The in person interview is basically to see if you would get along with the person training you. They then call you about the job offer and set up a date to take a mouth swap drug test. I've heard that HR has not been responding to applicants recently.
