    I worked at IKEA as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Pretty good starting pay. Discounted food and items through entire location. Friendly staff. I would recommend it for a first job.

    Cons

    The food prep and cleaning area were not organized and training was not very good. They just kind of throw you into the mix and expect you to know what to do.

    Pros

    Easy to get in, fun and good people working there. (none - management)
    go in do your time and leave with no worries

    Cons

    everything is arranged when it comes to promotions. Your job skills and experience mean nothing. Its who likes you and what can you do for them in case of any problems.
    Managers are there since the store is open and do not want to move up in the company, and that leads to relocating to a different state if you want to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should want and push co-workers to move up, and they should be awarded for that, on the same note if half of the team quits, or people complain about work environment, they should look into that.
