Not a bad retail job, just horrible management

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

Pros

-Work with awesome people and make great friends
-Pretty decent pay
-Benefits even if you are part time

Cons

Management definitely plays favorites. Being an hourly co worker isn't so great after you have been there for a while. There is no hope in moving up in the company unless you suck up to the right people. If you suck up, you can get away with whatever you want and that isn't far to all the other hard working coworkers. Management also likes to make crazy rules that don't make any sense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop playing favorites. There is a reason certain departments have high turn over rates. Step back and think about what you are doing to contribute to that turn over. Making crazy rules that don't make sense or upset your coworkers might just be what is making them want to quit.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, there is a really laid back atmosphere, the company takes care of its employees, pretty good benefits

    Cons

    It can be too laid back when the store becomes busy, the people who actually want to work have to carry the load and management doesn't seem to care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the issues that are important to the hourly co-workers
