Very good benefits and very helpful people. A joy to work for.
For a person who takes responsibility, the sky is the limit, if there is an initiative there are rewards.
Pros
Excellent Benefits
Cons
Cannot think of one.

Management team is shady and will smile in your face while talking behind your back. They say that they care about people but don't care about anyone but themselves. They also show jealousy and favoritism. Very jealous management team. Will fire you just because you look better than them and have more going on for yourselves than what they are doing. They show pride in being at IKEA for 20+ years. Such losers.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
shady team leaders

Management is conniving and shady. Customers can be demanding, rude and entitled. Managers play favorites, promotions are not really based on merit. It can be a very high stress job for very little pay.
Pros
Staff cafeteria serves good food
Cons
Everything else

Overall good company. Interesting place to work with a very unique culture. Hardest part of the job is lack of solid upper level training as most co-workers work their way up and know the company inside and out.

Good company to work for with benefits. Coworkers are probably one of the best aspects of the job. Managers can occasionally micro manage, which can be annoying at times but are overall good people.

Leaders aren't qualified for the job. Ikea store values and culture is great but of course store 257 does there own things that aren't always the best.

working at IKEA was very fast paced it was always a busy day at work. I would say the hardest part about the job was knowing all the different types of products IKEA offers. the management staff were great leaders and pushed myself and other employees to their full potential.

IKEA is a very lax company to work for. Depending on which department you work in you dont even really need to do your job, you just need to show up. They are not kind to people who take public transportation like i did, they have a 5 min leeway so if you go over that 5 mins thats an "occurance". They will claim that they have work life balance while scheduling you for the "needs of the business" (6am-11pm). Ive been told the ATL store is unique with its aura, but it really can drag you down when you put 1000% efffort and it goes ignored while they constantly complain about being short staffed and no one knows what their doing.

I loved working at Ikea because all of my co-workers were really nice and helpful. There was also a certain familiarity with the people I worked with so I always knew I could ask someone for help if a manager was busy. It is a fast-paced environment though and one minute it could be slow then the next minute there's a heard of people coming out the warehouse trying to checkout.

Management holds no one accountable, the reliable people are penalized most and get Majority of workloads, and coworkers often felt tossed to the side

It could be soooo much better but customer service is trash. Dealing with the most mess but get paid the least. The managers don’t communicate with each other as well as with the new trainees and the people that’s been there for a while
Pros
Advancement, 3-4 dollar meals, great breakroom and coworkers
Cons
Managers, lack of communication, lack of care for employees

This job paid well and also gave bonuses. Cant forget about Paid Time Off. I also valued the low prices and discounts that we received when purchasing items.

There is no real on the job training, you are expected to shadow fellow coworkers and absorb whatever info you can with no manuals or other resources to aide you. There is too much gray area in almost everything and everywhere you look, allowing too much room for error and possibly, termination. You are constantly working next to unqualified lazy coworkers because IKEA doesn't feel the need to hire "good people", just "available bodies". The morale amongst the coworkers has plummeted tremendously and the customer reviews are no better. Changes are constantly being made without a substantial amount of planning, thought or clarity from the store manager. The hardest part of the job was not having any concrete idea of what to do on a daily basis to help the store become a better place to shop. Great ideas from coworkers were never praised or rewarded. They were usually frowned upon and later incorporated into the work life. As part time (25-35) hours, you are to have completely OPEN availability, as if you have no life or family to take care of. A staff of 10 coworkers are now being forced to take on the task of 25 coworkers for low pay. IKEA refuses to replenish the help that is needed. they also refuse to pay a proper wage knowing that the cost of living in Atlanta has risen greatly. The most enjoyable part of the job used to be the ability to work with an awesome crew of people but sadly they all left the company feeling slighted by the direction IKEA is now headed.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Too long to list

Nice job culture, very employee oriented. Not really much opportunity for advancement but you can transfer from department to department. Employees have their own cafeteria where food is provided at a discounted rate.

This job has been the best I’ve had so far in my career the freedom to create & help others has been the best thing thus far.. my manager dependency on my work ethic is really what motivates me to always go over & beyond.. working with people who enjoys your help on projects and who genuinely cares for your growth is just the most beautiful thing in a work place for people in my position due to the mental pressure of always having to give 180%.
Pros
religious beliefs & culture freedom, Staff cafe, quiet room, 2 15min breaks throughout your shift to regroup, personal work space for all departments
Cons
Pay rate
