Sales Co-Worker Interview

Anonymous Employee in Schaumburg, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Schaumburg, IL).

Interview

Applied online, got a phone interview and then was invited to a hiring event and got hired that day so it was very long and exhausting but worth it. They were organized. I had my first interview which revolved around basic questions, they asked what I wanted to do. The second interview was with my future manager who asked more specific questions based on the job I said I was most interested in. I got hired that day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Tempe, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email a few days later asking to do a phone interview with someone from the US office in Pennsylvania. The phone interview didn't happen, but I received an email the next day from the manager at the store asking if I would like to come in for a face to face interview. The interview was an hour long, he asked questions to get to know me as a person and as a future co-worker then took me on a tour of the department I was applying for. A week later, I received a follow-up email asking to come in for a second interview that Friday. I met with a person from HR and was offered the job.

    The process does take a few weeks. You must see two managers and have a background check. Drug test as well. They are very friendly and help you along the process

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IKEA in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about a week later through email to schedule the first interview which was over the phone. It consisted of the representative telling me about the job and asking a few scenerio situations questions. Nothing too crazy, and by the end of the interview I was asked to schedule the next interview which is a one on one with the department manager of the store I applied to.

    My interview day comes and when I arrive, I'm told my interviewer was running late. Which was no big problem, I was a little early anyway and life happens. So in the mean time HR takes me down to the sales floor and instructs me to just walk around until my interviewer arrives. Again, no big problem. Figured I'd take that time to familiarize myself, do some window shopping and also knock out some cardio for the day.

    Almost two hours go by before I finally meet my interviewer. The interview lasted about 10 minutes, not difficult. A bunch of scenerio situation questions that were read word for word off of a fill in sheet. Asked when I could expect to hear back, and was told the position is looking to be filled as soon as possible. And that she will be calling everyone by the next week to let them know the outcome either way.

    A week and a couple days go by that I don't hear anything so I call the store and speak with HR. They tell me the position is still available and that the department manager will be giving call backs soon. Cool, waited two weeks and emailed inquiring about the position's status. Department manager calls me a couple nights later and tells me the position is still available, she has one more interview and will call me back in two days to let me know her decision either way.

    It's now been two months later. By no means am I still waiting on her call LOL. So if you are in need of a job asap, I'd recommend looking elsewhere. I'm not sure if my experience was a fluke or if this is protocol but please Ikea, don't keep telling ppl you will call them if you have no intent. Quite unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Draper, UT).

    Interview

    The hiring process took about a month, they move very slowly. You will either have a phone interview or an on sight first interview. If they call you back for a second, its usually to make an offer. The questions are all based on the company values to make sure you are a "values fit".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Emeryville, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Kind of long. I went to a job fair and it took about a month to actually start. I had 3 different interviews with 3 different people. 1 of which is now my manager , they were all nice except the first guy who was kind of a poker face. But none the less he apparently liked me so I can't complain. I took a drug test and background test.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took about an hour to answer all of the managers questions. The manager referenced my experience listed on my resume heavily and asked how it applied to the position I applied for. The manager then asked me what my favorite room in the house is and why. The manager also asked what I knew about Ikea and why I wanted to join the team.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't anticipating the question about which room was my favorite. It did throw me a little off guard because it was something I've never really thought about before.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't try to negotiate because they already pay a larger amount than most post time positions do so I was afraid to push it and risk not getting the job.
