Just another big box retailer that puts hourly co-workers first; your screwed if you are a manager.

I worked at IKEA full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at IKEA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    tuition assents, friendly work environment, and yearly holiday presents.

    Cons

    When they bring in mangers who have never worked for an IKEA they don't understand the IKEA culture. Its seems that some upper management hire female mangers based on what they look like and not there qualifications.
