Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Dallas, TX) in September 2016.

Interview

They sent me an email the day after I applied to schedule a phone interview. Thank God for Glassdoor to prep me for some questions. Most of the questions already are on here. He asked me 4-5 questions and scheduled an in-person interview for the next day! The process was fast and easy. Will update this after the 1-1 interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IKEA (Emeryville, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Simple. First had a phone interview with someone from HR and then had a on-site interview with a team lead. The person i met with was very nice and friendly. We talked a little bit about our personal lives before getting into the interview. The questions were easy to answer nothing about the business all about me and how i would handle situations or about previous work experience. I am still waiting to hear back on an offer pending a background check.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA.

    Interview

    The interview was very quick. I met one on one with the hiring manager. They asked very basic, normal question like, "when were you in a stressful situation and how did you handle it," blah blah. About a week or so after the interview, I got called back in to take the drug test, which is mouth swab and can only detect drugs used with the last 7 days.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were A LOT of steps in this interview process, the questions were mostly easy to answer (since i was being myself) but then again...phone screen, group interview, 1:1, background check all that for a cashier job...lol i can't believe that some places have the on spot hiring process compared to this. I would mark it under "Difficult" but then again the staff and such were friendly all along the way and the questions weren't out of the blue so i'd say "Average"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IKEA (West Sacramento, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I got to talk with two friendly managers for around 45 minutes. They introduced themselves and told me what they did at IKEA and then talked about their personal lives so I got to know more about them. It was just like having a nice conversation with friends and we all laughed a lot during the interview. They mostly asked questions that would just allow them to get to me better instead of the usual interview questions. After that they told it would be a week before I should expect to get an email from them letting me if they be moving forward with hiring me or not. And that it would take around 37 days to process everything before I would start working.
