    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at IKEA in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied almost less than a month ago and then last week got a phone call for a phone interview, missed it and called back, they didn't call for the rest of the day. They called again the next day, I missed it again and then called back, no call for the rest of the day. Finally they called back on the third day and I was able to answer the phone. I guess that they work on their own time. I did the phone interview and it was okay, I felt kind of weird after. This past week I got an email and a phone call for an in person interview. I went in today and it was typical questions for a retail position, but they had me do a written application, then interviewed, then gave me the job description and walked out, walked back in and said that they wanted to move forward. I guess that meant that I got the job because I filled out a background check form and agreed to do a drug test, which I haven't done... I think that the background check is done first.

    There was a job fair and I waited over an hour in line for turn to get my interview. The person who interviewed me was really nice and polite. She asked basic interview questions (Why do you want to work here? What motivates you?) which were all printed on a sheet of paper.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at IKEA in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Contact for a quick phone interview. Pass that, come in for 1:1 with department manager; if you get a 2nd interview on the spot, you're considered. If you're given a drug test form to complete after the interviews, and you pass, you're more than likely considered.
