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.
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 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.
Uno de los mejores sitios donde he tenido el gusto de trabajar. Ikea es uno de esos lugares donde te sientes en casa y el personal con el que compartes cada dia es tan amigable y colaborador que nunca sientes que es otro dia mas de trabajo así haya sido un día duro. Allí aprendes que el cliente es de verdad lo mas importante y aprendes a ponerte en su lugar con ello se le da el servicio que quisieras recibir tu mismo (como debe ser siempre). Desarrollas pasión por el buen servicio al cliente y crece en ti un sentido de pertenencia que te hace sentir muy orgulloso de pertenecer a esta familia. Me siento muy agradecida de haber formado parte de sus filas y de haberme llevado tantos conocimientos que me servirán para ser un mejor profesional en atención al cliente,graduado en Ikea Dublin.
Salario, consideración con el personal, obsequios, comedor de trabajadores, todo
nada a lo que uno no pueda buscarle el lado bueno

IKEA as a whole is a great company to work for. However IKEA Dublin is run very differently from most other IKEAs. This is its downfall. Immensely understaffed, but will not hire more staff to achieve tertial budgets. You will also be expected to work til ten o clock at night and over. You have no influence in your position. Due to the recession in Ireland many over educated people ended up working in IKEA. This lead to progression being near impossible. If we were to compare this to the other stores in the UK, the floor staff are generally students, and management are those with a higher education. This is not the case in IKEA Dublin. They abuse their staff , cut corners where possible. Your direct managers are generally great because they are in the same stressful position as you, but higher management will have no time for you, or the reality of the stores condition. You cannot progress despite how much training you are given, because that means they would have to replace you and become even more understaffed.I would not recommend working in IKEA Dublin. I would recommend working in another IKEA store.
You learn to deal with the most difficult people.
Long hours, unfair wages, no chance to progress
Great people, great experiences, Bad experenices, Sad to go, but needed a change from Customer service.
So much fun working with the people. great work nights out. great summer and Christmas parties. My job was Customer Service, the Best but also hardest place to work.. the highs and chats with the customers were fun but there was the shouting and unhappy customers that experienced bad times throughout the store and i was there, to make the customers bad times in store better. Management was great, easy to talk to and approach. My most enjoyable part of the job was making the customers smiling and laughing as they went home. I learned that I need to ask for help and that there was nothing wrong with asking for it. typical day at ikea is all go go go, fast, busy and non stop until it was home time, but it was the slow days that where the worst because it seemed to drag in, it was better for every co worker if it was busy. It was a pleasure to work there
free uniform, Free christmas/summer parties, great people, most fun, open to suggestions and ideas.
hurtful customers, the arrows the customers had to follow, bad signage around the story.
work place that haven't rised a peny over a four year period, but making millions on peoples backs, one of the toughest driving and loading jobs..
typical day at work is to load the 7.5t truck with flat packs of furniture which is to handball 3t of real heavy boxes of a moving trolley of a ground ( that type of furniture loading is against manual handling and health and safety roles) the ground at the loading bay doe's be slipy in a winter tha can cause you a bad back injury.. than to deliver goods throughout Ireland which could be from 600-1000 km journeys.. coul take from 6am till 1pm following morning, which is a 19h working day between two drivers sharing driving all day.. without having a bunk bed in a lorry to rest your back and eyes of the road.. this type of overworking yourself is dangerous in general for us and other road users, cause for exaple on a way back you would be totaly wasted and tyred and you have to drive truck back after lets say 12h of hard work without any rest for your eyes or back.. which is illegal! management is very bad and total abuse of people! Breezemount int. IKEA contracters!
very long hours... to long!
