    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!
