I worked at IKEA

Pros

IKEA Corporate have may good points for co-workers; such as, “There’s a saying at IKEA companies that it’s okay to make mistakes - everyone does it. In fact, we think it’s a healthy way to learn and improve.” Or “…you get to work as a team member, have fun and get on with the job.”

Cons

At IKEA Store level, you will quickly learn you have made a mistake if question why management treats people differently (based upon who they know). There are actually two teams: Managers have fun and Co-workers get on with the job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate needs to look at what store management is doing not what they say they are doing.

    I have been working at IKEA part-time (more than an 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.
