Featured Review
"Great!"21 Jan 2021

Current Employee - Category Specialist

I have been working at Walmart full-time

Pros

Ended too soon very sad

Cons

Wish it had gone on longer

"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!
