"Perfect!"18 Jun 2020

Former Employee - Manager

I worked at Lowe's Home Improvement full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Free tshirts for the win

Cons

Bad coffee it was terrible

"Great company"2 Mar 2021

Current Employee - Sales Co-Worker

I have been working at IKEA part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Family friendly, flexible, great community. 1 weekend off in every 4!

Cons

No Monday-Friday work. Have to work 3 weekends in a month but that’s what you get when you work in retail I suppose! 1 weekend off out of 4 is better than nothing!
