The phone interview lasted about 15-20 min, and at the end of the conversation they scheduled me to have an in person interview the next day. The interview was a one-on-one with the head of the department and lasted about 1 hour. Very relaxed atmosphere, although there were a lot of questions for me to answer.

I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Cincinnati, OH)

Interview

The phone interview had basic questions about skills and work experience. A couple days after the phone interview, I got a call to schedule an interview with the marketplace manager at the IKEA store. The showroom manager was also there for the interview. He was there to lighten the mood. I was asked basic questions, similar to those of the phone interview. They were very friendly and polite. They didn't just ask the questions that were on their list. They explained the potential to grow within IKEA and the many different opportunities there were.

Interview Questions
  • Why do you want to work for IKEA?
  • Explain a time when you faced a difficult situation, and how did you solve the problem?
  • Explain a time when you failed a certain task, and what did you do to fix it?
  • Which room in your house is your favorite, and why?
  • Explain a situation where you had to be a team leader.

Long and pointless I completely hated the whole process of this year and I can't make it out there and get them to call me hopefully soon as I can find something else to do with the business and get my own thing to work together this year is a small price to pay.

I had a positive interview and the two ladies that interviewed me were very friendly. The questions were all pretty simple and I thought I would get the job but I was pretty nervous so I think it prevented me from getting the job.

Interview Questions
  • The last question was probably the most difficult, because we from time to time, we forget the things that we have done. But the most important thing to remember is to think clearly about what you are going to say.
