    Corporate Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA.

    Interview

    The pair of managers interviewing were pleasant and friendly, and also fairly intense. They posed a lot of thought-provoking questions and didn't give a lot of feedback on my responses. I had no idea if they liked me or not, until I got a call about two weeks later with an offer to come in for the next interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (College Park, MD (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call from the Visual merchandising manager. Came in for an in-person interview. In the interview I was asked a series of questions about team practices, problem-conflict resolution, and about what skills I have with power tools. Later I was given ample time to design my own retail display as a way of doing a skills test.

    The following two weeks, I received an email to come in for another interview to meet with a logistics team member.

    Interview

    One on one interview followed by interview activity making displays in a private room while timed. If you are unable to answer the questions or comfortably implement the activity; this job is not for you. The whole experience was positive, but challenging. It took two or three weeks before I heard anything and an offer was made.
