    Pros

    They offer almost all employees Great Benefits. Working in teams is great. Oh and can't forget about the meatballs the food is great and company discount.

    Cons

    Managers are sometimes very busy in the office and don't spend much time on the floor. There is sometimes a lot of work for one person to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Team leads should be on the floor more often. Sometimes you don't see them all day. When you say you develop emplyees trike mean it. There could be great talent you are not taking advantage of.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Pay is good. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Overworked. Not enough hours in the budget to be staffed correctly. Managers don't understand the reality of the work that has to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and meeting rooms and get out on the floor and listen to what the co-workers are telling you.

    Pros

    The pay was better than I expected. Didnt have to do much besides get the carts

    Cons

    You had to work outside in the rain or extreme heat. Sometimes the carts would be everywhere in other store parking lots

    Advice to Management

    Pay more for having to go out in all the weather conditions. Sometimes the heat gets unbearable

    Pros

    PTO/benefits at part time, great discounts, and great people, well equipped staff area.

    Cons

    Lack of guidance from management, disorganized work environment, stressful days with little recognition for achievements, managers can apparently threaten your hours under guise of "helping" you, and there's a steep decline after the first year in your opinion of your job.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to what your coworkers need and help them, when you see your management gossiping and acting as if they're in high school it makes it very difficult to take your job seriously.

    Pros

    The work is demanding but it's fun and improves your analytical thinking at the same time.
    PTO & sick time even for part time.

    Cons

    Depending on your management you will be on your toes constantly. I quit because of that.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect and not tricks.

    Pros

    IKEA has opportunities beyond the sales floor! I recently had the chance to travel to Europe with IKEA to see how the IKEA Foundation partners with Save the Children to create a better opportunity for the many in the school system there. We also have contests annually (Life Improvement Challenge) where you can campaign to win $10K for the charity of your choice. Not to mention the list of possible careers paths are endless! Unique experiences, room to grow...IKEA is a Great Place To Work!

    Cons

    Our Culture can be different, but we think that is what makes people stay year after year.
