    Pros

    Your coworkers are like family. Training is exceptional. Coworker discounts and low meal costs. Working with all the awesome articles we sell! Making customers happy by helping them. Being able to sell exceptional furniture. Growing within the company. Most customers are wonderful. Hours can be flexible. Management from the Store Manager to all of the Team Leaders are great to work with, friendly and are very hard working. IKEA gives you the tools to be what you want to be. Benefits are amazing!!!

    Cons

    Customers can be very rude, demanding, destructive and messy. Weekends are exhausting. Late night closings because of the messy customers.

    Advice to Management

    Provide weekends off to coworkers without them having to ask for it. You will find them less resentful when you have your weekends off.

    Pros

    For the most part, I loved my job at IKEA. I worked part-time while going to school full time to get my Master's in Architecture. My school schedule was insanely hectic, but my manager was always willing to work with me to adjust my work schedule accordingly. Paid time off, vacation, and sick time were a plus as well. The pay was also fantastic for a part-time retail sales position

    Cons

    Upper management seemed to be in their own little word, ignoring and turning a blind eye to some of the coworker's frustrations and complaints within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat sales and front line employees with a little more respect, and hire more full time employees. The turnover rate is so high because you only hire part timers!

    Pros

    Good company values, good pay for retail and generally filled with kind, creative people.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary greatly on the store and the managers. The company is great, but not everyone in every store is great.

    Pros

    Great company values. Pays very well; especially for a retail job. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    You will work almost every weekend unless you request off. Long shifts, with small breaks. They expect you to break your back for the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Show more gratitude towards your coworkers. Hire enough people so that everyone isn't burnt out and ready to quit. Tell people they do a good job. (Gotcha cards)

    Pros

    Great 401k contribution. They match 100% of your first 4% and 50% for your next 2%. They aswell have retirement plan that you get funds into every year.

    Cons

    You have to be with the company for at least 5 years to be vested for the retirement plan. Which I don't think is bad, but may be for someother fella.
