I have been working at IKEA part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Amazing benefits for HL2 and above
Flexible Scheduling
Wearing jeans to work
Environmentally responsible company
Genuine concern for employees well being and happiness
Co-worker purchase voucher to help buy furniture

Cons

Benefits are expensive for part time co-workers (HL1)
New uniforms are worse than before
Poor management within Senior and Logistics Department
No much room or opportunity for advancement with company
Hard to get a worthwhile raise, (only comes around once a year and very meager if any)

Advice to Management

Logs managers are a joke here, all talk and no real work for how much they get paid. Play favorites and have extremely poor training involvement as well as people and task management skills.

    I worked at IKEA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, employee discount, don't have to buy work clothes. If there is good store management the place can be fun to work at. If not, it is a living nightmare.

    Cons

    Steering group and corporate office that has no clue as to what goes on in the store. They manage from a desk and will always be in meetings. They create work groups just to be in more meetings and avoid the co-workers and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sitting at your desk or in meetings and see what is going on in the store.
