    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Atlanta, GA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a email for a interview three days later. Unfortunately, it was IKEA National hiring day. There were so many people waiting in line to be interviewed by IKEA Mangers. It was a one on one interview which lasted about ten minutes. The hiring Manger made me feel comfortable and asks a few questions. I wasn't hired on the spot, but she did say I would hear something in a week.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online on March 30th. I then received an email a week later for an invite to their national meet and greet (job fair) on April 7th the night before. For the meet and greet there was at least 100 people in attendance in the 30 mins I was there. I had a group interview with 3 other people answering general interview questions. That part lasted about 5 minutes and then we were able to leave. I later received a phone call for another interview approximately 3 weeks later. The interview went well and the manager who interviewed me told me to wait for her to call me for a possible job offer. I called her almost everyday after the interview until I got back in contact with her a week and a half later where she asked me to come in the next day. When I came in I was offered the position and immediately took the oral drug test. I am awaiting my background test currently and orientation in 2 weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I was actually recruited from a previous position. The interview was just a formality. The basic questions of KSA's and completing an application. The most difficult part of the interview, was negotiating pay after an offer was made. The interviewers were very upfront about what their expectations were and allowing me to ask any questions that I had.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for a full time sales position and was contacted for an interview a few weeks later. And by "contacted" I mean the manager happened to see me and wanted to do the interview right then. There was no real planning on his part.

    After answering some generic questions, the interview took a sour turn. His demeanor was very pompous and arrogant. Additionally, he made snide remarks about my career aspirations and answers to his questions. I withdrew my application the same day; no job is worth that disrespect.

    Interview Questions

    • "What are your career goals/do you have any other job besides working at IKEA?"

      "If hired when can you begin?"   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IKEA (Atlanta, GA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Called by HR manager at the store. Interviewed with the manager of my department. Questions were asked in a nice, quiet room. Questions are straightforward and there is emphasis on having a conversation rather than a grilling. Was walked through the department and introduced to other co-workers. Very nice. After that, was called in to do the drug screen (mouth swab) and the date of orientation. Orientation is great with good 1-on-1 time with the store manager.
