    I have been working at IKEA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is exceptional. People are friendly and that's all working in a place like that. It's everything good. I love them.

    Cons

    Stressful job too busy as we have to do lot of tasks and serv customer above of all. And we have to face ungrateful customers.

    Advice to Management

    Need more employers more hours good contract hours. But it will never happen

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA in January 2017.

    Interview

    Online application - cover letter and CV
    HR review passed and then sent for VM hiring manager to review.
    VM manager then set a task to complete and send back to her within a few days. I was successful on the test and therefore invited to an interview with the VM manager. I was then again successful at this stage and invited to the third and final stage where myself and another hopeful were invited into branch to complete two practicals and got to spend some time with the team and an informal chat with the other VM manager that I did not meet first time round. A member of the team also sat in on this chat. I've really enjoyed the whole experience
