J’ai travailler dans le secteur textile & salle de bain. Autrement dit, le PLUS GROS département (4 en 1).C’est un bon emploi et il y a des avantages. Par contre, il y a beaucoup de choses à apprendre allant des rideaux/tapis jusqu’à comment faire des bannières (ça n’a pas rapport avec ton secteur).En ce qui concerne les bannières tu reçois une formation de 1h et ils s’attendent à ce que tu ai tout compris d’un coup.Bref, leurs standards sont trop élevéset ils te laissent moins de 3 mois pour faire tes preuves.
Pros
Avantages: repas gratuits en été lors des journées d’achalandage
Cons
Les employés plus âgés sont bêtes et n’aident pas assez les nouveaux

I worked in self-serve warehouse (sales). The tasks are fairly simple, yet very repetitive. The job can be very demanding and exhausting, especially on peak sales days. You are constantly on your feet moving around and lifting boxes, as well as helping customers find their desired products. Teamwork is essential in order to keep everything under control, so you must be able to communicate and work well with others. From working over a year in this department, I learned a lot about time management, working under pressure and being dependable for my team. It was an extremely valuable experience.

The management in self-serve is amazing. Extremely reasonable, compassionate and flexible with hours (which is very helpful for students). The employees (throughout the whole store) are overall genuinely nice and hard-working.


IKEA is a great company to work for because they truly care about their employees. No matter which department you apply for, it is definitely worth putting in an application.
Pros
Clean & modern staff quarters, great management, great people, great benefits, employee discount, flexible scheduling
Cons
Long hours, constant movement, repetitive and exhausting tasks, stressful.

I've been working at IKEA for the past 7 years. It's my best work experience so far. Being part of this family has thought me a lot throughout the years and i recommend people to work there.

When compared to other places, it's above average. However, they have a lot of room for growth considering the mismanagement on all levels. It's still a good place to work.

I love working there but their shift planning is just a pain, you basically have no life as every single day your shift time is different even after working there for 14 months.

There are always customers at IKEA. There's barely any downtime so it's pretty exhausting. You'll look forward to your breaks, especially on the days where the clients are particularly rude. What makes up for it is the people you work with. Super sweet colleagues and managers. The workplace culture is inclusive and empowering (everyone is unionized).

My experience at Ikea was extremely bad and stressful. Bad management and a horrible working environment.
Wouldn't recommend anyone to work there if they are sensitive even a bit.

If you are a single parent, IKEA is NOT, I repeat NOT for you.
There is zero empathy or understanding o the part of management.

Your salary can be forgotten or delayed and all you get is no apology.

Changed over time to a more stressful environment. Lack of compromise and workers treated as pawns more than valued employees. Difficulty for advancement and minimal guidance to achieve growth.
Pros

Cons
long hours and no recognition
