    I have been working at IKEA part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Ikea puts a lot of money into their employees especially my personal favorite the subsidized coworker meal. Easy to work with schedule. Very Competent Coworkers in comparison to previous jobs. Some days are very slow, allowing you to take care of cleaning and prep that you wouldn't normally be able to do. Despite working less hours a week, I make more than I did previously. The rate I started at is higher than the wage cap was at my last job.

    Cons

    Busy, The Bistro can get very busy and customers get irate easily on those days. The Customers are a step down from previous jobs, more irate and difficult. Some customers are foreign and demand you accept foreign currency even though I have no authority to accept it or even have currency conversion rates with me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let applicants know how long it could take to proceed with the application process. The time I waited in between the steps in the process were almost agonizing thinking I'm no longer being considered.
