Current Employee - Unloader and Replensiher in Draper, UT
Current Employee - Unloader and Replensiher in Draper, UT

I have been working at IKEA part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Amazing benefits for HL2 and above
Flexible Scheduling
Wearing jeans to work
Environmentally responsible company
Genuine concern for employees well being and happiness
Co-worker purchase voucher to help buy furniture

Cons

Benefits are expensive for part time co-workers (HL1)
New uniforms are worse than before
Poor management within Senior and Logistics Department
No much room or opportunity for advancement with company
Hard to get a worthwhile raise, (only comes around once a year and very meager if any)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Logs managers are a joke here, all talk and no real work for how much they get paid. Play favorites and have extremely poor training involvement as well as people and task management skills.

    Just another big box retailer that puts hourly co-workers first; your screwed if you are a manager.

    Former Employee - Logistics in Chicago, IL

    I worked at IKEA full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, employee discount, don't have to buy work clothes. If there is good store management the place can be fun to work at. If not, it is a living nightmare.

    Cons

    Steering group and corporate office that has no clue as to what goes on in the store. They manage from a desk and will always be in meetings. They create work groups just to be in more meetings and avoid the co-workers and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sitting at your desk or in meetings and see what is going on in the store.
