    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Schaumburg, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone interview and then was invited to a hiring event and got hired that day so it was very long and exhausting but worth it. They were organized. I had my first interview which revolved around basic questions, they asked what I wanted to do. The second interview was with my future manager who asked more specific questions based on the job I said I was most interested in. I got hired that day.

    Sales Floor Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Covina, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IKEA (West Covina, CA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was out of town when they called me about receiving my application and they wanted me to come in the next day for an in person interview, but I wouldn't be back till that week's Sunday. I guess they liked my resume quite enough to decide to give me an on the phone interview the next day (which I absolutely nailed) and I really appreciated that they did that for me. They could of literally just brushed me off because I was away, but they still decided to give me a chance and I'm forever grateful for that. The phone interview was quite lengthy, but I had no problem with that. I was a bit nervous because it was my first time doing a phone interview, but studying my answers helped a lot. One thing though, my questions got a bit personal because I talked about how management at my old job was lacking immensely and they were really curious as to how I handled myself in such a stressful environment, but I answered their questions properly.

    Technical Sales Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IKEA (Jacksonville, FL (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a woman manager for the new Jax store opening in November. She was professional and courteous . We had a little chit chat and then straight down to business. The questions were a little predictable and many situational types asking what would you do if.. I didn't feel like I could relax and be myself. She was also a little guarded .. I felt like I needed to relax her ! In fairness though, she had many people ( 100's) to sift through after me . She was trying to get through interview quickly and proficiently. Not much personality .
