    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IKEA (Bloomington, MN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call from the upper management asking for a call back the next day. I left a message and received another call from the hiring manager to do a phone screen. The hiring manager scheduled an in-person interview. I was interviewed by two team leads. It was an extremely casual interview with plenty of room to inject your own personality and give them a true feel for who you are as a person.

    Easy Interview

    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 online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (College Park, MD) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call from the Visual merchandising manager. Came in for an in-person interview. In the interview I was asked a series of questions about team practices, problem-conflict resolution, and about what skills I have with power tools. Later I was given ample time to design my own retail display as a way of doing a skills test.

    The following two weeks, I received an email to come in for another interview to meet with a logistics team member.

    Safety & Security Co-Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA.

    Interview

    Received an email from HR to schedule a phone interview about a week after applying.

    She called & described the position, starting pay, etc. Checked with my availability & scheduled an in person interview with the safety & security manager.

    I sat down with both the safety & security manager and another person who I assume was from HR. They were both very nice. The manager was professional & laid back. He asked a lot of general questions about my work experience while the HR rep seemed to be asking me questions to judge my character & see if I'd fit in.

    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.

    The hiring manager seemed very nice and interested and said she'd be calling me.
