WORK ENVIRONMENT

Working at Ikea:

I applied at the new location opening in Tampa, Fl in January. I didn't get hired. I can tell you about the interview proses. They call you and you have a phone interview and make an appointment for a group interview where there were 30 other applicants. They tell you about Ikea and ask you if you where a furniture which would you be. Then they make you change seats for the second activity where there are four people in each table. You have to build a building for twenty minutes with some paper. There's a manager for every table taking notes. Then they tell you to change tables again so you can work with different people and you have to read the activity and discuss it with the group, again there's a manager taking notes. The managers leave. When they returned they called some of us to follow a manager and she took us to a different room and told us that to take a catalog and chocolate and that they would call us back. I got an e-mail after 2 weeks telling me that I haven't qualified. They tell you if you work at the register one day you don't have to do that everyday you can ask a manager to change departments.
The Ikea Tampa location is opening May 6th, 2009.

Ikea Salary and Benefits:

They asked me on the phone how much I would start with, but also said that they would start you off with $8 hr. Part time if 20 hrs and you can get benefits.

WORK ENVIRONMENT

casual, team-oriented, flexible schedule, disorganized, unprofessional

Working at IKEA:

Pros: Benefits and discounts, they have a staff cafeteria with an all you can drink soda station
Cons: Closing sucks, they close too late and if one department lags then the whole store has to help out.
Unstable management, they kept moving around to other stores and most were unappreciated.

Ikea Salary and Benefits:

starting $8.50, ended at $9 something...they did allow me to take 2 separate vacations during my short year there and i think i got paid for only one of them...discounts went as high as 40% one time, usual 20%

Pay is just okay but there are good benefits including 401k and tuition reimbursement. Ikea has a very flexible scheduling system which works out very well. Probably the best thing about working here.
