I worked at IKEA

Pros

They have great benefits for part and full time employees

Cons

It is difficult to advance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's difficult to grow in the company, unless you get in good with the management team. Grudges are held constantly.

    A good place to work while studying or in the summer, but don't plan on sticking around too long!

    I have been working at IKEA

    Pros

    Double pay on weekends and holidays
    Time and a half after 6pm
    Some ability to choose own schedule/ set preferences

    Cons

    Can be hard to get hours, especially if you only have a weekend contract
    Schedules come out very late
    There is no opportunity for growth

    I was told that I would not be considered for a shift leader position because I had a higher education level and they did not believe that they could count on me staying with the company very long. 3 years later, I am still an employee, though I only work weekends during the summer and some shifts during the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    About half of your employees (at least in the customer service department) are students. If you want to keep these employees and take advantage of their knowledge, you have to show them that they have a future with the company and give them the opportunity to grow.
