Warehouse Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Palo Alto, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IKEA (East Palo Alto, CA) in October 2011.

Interview

Great telephone interview ... fun and direct, candid but not too nerve wracking

It took a little longer than I was told to get the call for the 1:1

This was interesting because my interviewer had only been employed there for 2 weeks ... which seemed quite inappropriate. Maybe (from looking at me at the reception area) they thought I was not a good candidate (not likely but?) .... or simply had so many applicants booked on Sunday afternoon that they had to "double up" the 1:1s with two (or more?) interviewers.

In the end, I was very disappointed cause maybe I appeared to be overqualified (having driven a forklift for WalMart for the last 7 years and was paid twice what Ikea was ititially offering?

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    My first interview was on the phone, where the interviewer asked me about my past work experience. Then I was asked why I left my last job, I replied that because I to move because of school. I was asked if whether I enjoyed working at my past work, which i replied yes to. Then I was asked me if about my educational background. I was then asked basic questions about what hours I was able to work and if I was able to lift 50lb. I was also asked questions about IKEA such as "What do I like about IKEA?And Why did I apply to IKEA?" To which I replied their commitment to the environment and the community.The phone interview was casual. I was then asked to come in for another interview a couple of days later.The interview consisted of questions like "What do are some of your positive/negative traits?" "What is some thing you are proud of?" "Recall a situation where you had to work as a team" "What should a team do in order to be successful?" The interview process was also very casual and one on one. I was then told to come back a couple days later to fill out paper work for background check and etc.
