    I worked at IKEA (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Even part-time employees qualify for benefits. Pay is good for retail.

    Cons

    Communication issues are rampant. Was told that the company would take my side in word vs. word conflicts with customers, but still fired me over baseless customer complaint. It's retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell your employees that the company has their back, then fire them over a conflict with only a customer's word as evidence of wrongdoing.

    Pros

    benefits, pay, and knowledge. You can learn anything you want there, just sign up for the classes and show up. Design, store layout, range management knowledge, easily attainable there.

    Cons

    Management not wanting to be accountable for there mistakes. Scheduling switched to an automated generator which does not allow for changes easily, and usually creates problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on the sales floor upper mgmt.

    Pros

    The company generally has lots of opportunities for coworkers to step up, take on more responsibility and develop within the company. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy gets in the way of a lot of improvements that could take place. Poor managers are drag down departments and upper management is very slow to react.

    I worked at IKEA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ikea offers a lot of opportunity for their employees. Ikea was flexible with my schedule. Part time employees received leave benefits and education benefits that increased in time. I met a lot of coworkers and customers who made an impact on my life. My direct management were always amazing.

    Cons

    Different policies depending on the store you visited. Needs update in technology to compete better with other store and make the stress of work easier on the the frontline coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all level of management and coworkers and try harder to back them up. Hire managers who care about their coworkers in and out of work because the only reason I stayed so long was because of the people.
