Good for a short term job. Environment is too toxic for a long term career. Very positive workforce full of nice people. Management are very entitled
Wage seems good at first but staff are over worked. The money is not worth the stress this job causes most people. The main reason people stay in IKEA is because the workforce is so large (650) so you are bound to make a group of really close friends. Unfortunately that is the only positive that sticks out in my mind for Ikea. I was there for 7 years, a lot of people leave after 2. Management does not use the internal interview process fairly so good luck moving up in the company unless you are friends with the right managers or you are sleeping with one if them. Most people start off on a 20 hour contract, they will stretch that across 5 days mostly evenings and weekends If you are looking for a career with opportunities and options avoid IKEA.
Cult environment, horrible place to work. Constant pressure and demands to meet targets from management while they sit in the canteen or swan about chatting, most of them not qualified to do the job at hand. Over worked and under paid while constantly being told it's a great place to work.
I enjoy the work itself as a kitchen planner. I am always kept busy and can really work on my creativity. everyone in Ikea is very friendly but it is a really busy store and i feel that sometimes there can be more done for their staff.
management are not great.
Help us improve!

I have been working for Ikea group barely 3 years and a lot had learned since then. The atmosphere in there is amazing and the team is so friendly and helpfully. I bring many great memories from there and friends. Would highly recommend have a job experience with them.
I worked here for several years and made some friends I'll have for life but the upper management contain some of the most truly toxic and horrible people i have ever met. Being called "stupid" and an "idiot" is common place by one member in particular who holds a lot of sway in the sales side of the business. I've lost many a nights sleep worrying about what the next days work held in store for me. It's so bad that anyone who has worked in Ikea Dublin knows exactly who I'm talking about.
6 weeks holidays and lots of training
Toxic management, low pay
Ikea Dublin is understaffed and highly busy, to make it worse, as if, dealing with many customers all at once wasn't difficult enough, amongst your daily choirs on a fast-paced environment, the Managers don't make it easy either. I left as I could not tolerate the pressure of the job as well the very strange management style, they literally will hunt you off and harass you. A considerate level of sickness levels due to the stress of the job, toilet breaks are monitored and you are constantly pulled up for minor things. Some staff members are allowed to do what they want and are picked for every good opportunity going - favouritism for locals is rife here! Avoid unless desperate as you will be miserable after a few weeks due to the horrible negative stressful atmosphere!
Day in work as inventory co - worker is very busy. I have learned how to check each transaction on product, that all movement on product is correct and all transaction registered correct. Management are good In work very importance is team work. The hardest part of the job that you have to make decision and written off money because product was missing. The most enjoyable part of the job while you found missing stock.
Ikea dublin is full of great co workers who keep the place ticking over the managers on the other hand are rude condescending lazy bullies who spend all day sitting in the office or canteen senior management are so out of touch they have no clue wats really going on at grass roots .Wouldn't recommend it as a work place they like to break people no respect or acknowledgement.
Being part of the CommIn group was great. I was a VM intern for a year and the workplace culture was great. I learned many skills to could improve my VM career in creative and also commercial point of view.
Cheap lunches, free hot beverages and drinks.
its a very physical job. it does get very tiring after a day
I collected and stored trolly's for customers in main car park, I also helped customers pack there car with product. There was alone of heavy lifting, but I am nearly fit from playing football and Martial arts, so the heavy lifting was ok.
