  • Employee Discount  (92 comments)

    “The furniture is already inexpensive, so the 15 % discount really doesn't take much off the overall total by the end of your shopping trip.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (84 comments)

    “The best part of working at Ikea is vacation and paid time off because you have certain times off which I don't remember, we have a system where...”

  • Health Insurance  (51 comments)

    “Again it is awesome unless you are HL-2, for those who are about the apply may be a bit hard because they only qualify for dental insurance”

    The best part of the benefits is that they are affordable and provide great coverage. Additionally, the 401k match is much better than my previous employer’s plan.

    It's a very comprehensive plan and is relatively inexpensive for the co-workers and managers. The benefits increase at each hours level move. HL1 12-20 hours, HL2 20-34hrs, HL3 34-40hrs, HL4 40hrs and then Salaried.

    Benefits are pretty cool but in order for you to qualify to them you need to work for awhile, because when you start probably you will be HL-1 (Beginner level) which means you only will be able to get certain hours, during that time period you are only qualifying to the dental insurance and that's it. Once you are HL-2, you will be getting more benefits, that is time IKEA starts to become a better place to work and perhaps you would be HL-3 which doesn't really matter after you are HL-2. Because you already will have some benefits. I got a lot of positive things to say about this company like great place to work, great people to work with, very respectful company, I never had problems with payments or any other issues. Awesome discounts, especially if you catch the right time, when there is discount for customers plus you have your co-worker discount that makes really good sense. The negative side of my review, hmm.. Actually not much. The only advice for management would be try to spend more time for those co-workers who have his ideas and plans in order to share and move forward accordingly. Because for the most part they don't care, they say that they are grateful but that's it.

    IKEA has a very generous vacation plan. For the hours you work, you accrue paid time off hours at a pretty quick rate.
