    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IKEA in February 2018.

    Interview

    I submitted my CV and was soon asked to complete a short video interview. Shortly later I was invited to an assessment center. Less than a week later, I was asked to attend an interview, and recieved a job offer a couple of days later.
