    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

    Good work-life balance, ability to make most of your own decisions, company supports local charities and environmental groups, great coworkers, above average retail pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Management is not in touch with the reality of what customers or sales staff need. They tend to stay in their offices and in meetings most of their day; rarely coming out to the sales floor. There are exceptions to this rule but they are few and far between. Rules have gotten very strict; If you clock in or out 1 minute late or early, you will be marked as tardy. Three tardies in one year result in disciplinary action.

    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.
