Just another big box retailer that puts hourly co-workers first; your screwed if you are a manager.

I worked at IKEA full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Benefits, PTO, employee discount, don't have to buy work clothes. If there is good store management the place can be fun to work at. If not, it is a living nightmare.

Cons

Steering group and corporate office that has no clue as to what goes on in the store. They manage from a desk and will always be in meetings. They create work groups just to be in more meetings and avoid the co-workers and managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop sitting at your desk or in meetings and see what is going on in the store.

    I have been working at IKEA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, company respects employees, 401k, free gifts, holiday party, if you make a mistake, it's okay.

    Cons

    Store Steering Group makes some odd choices on some of the managers they choose. Usually someone who worked in a store prior to coming to the new location. Customers are animals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with it and really listen to the VOICE results and make the change!
