I got interviewed in 2020 and in the interview they told me they had recently changed the way they interviewed as I was confused because it was so different to how people online had described it. First of all you apply and if they like your cv they they send you a link to do an online interview where you record yourself answering questions. If they like your answers they will ask you to attend an interview (mine was a group interview). At the group interview you will do a very simple task with around 8 other people and then one by one you will be individually taken for two different interviews.
IKEA is still figuring out how to run smoother in the realm of Merchandising Basics. ( a broad job that checks stock levels, cleans/organizes areas, fills add on's, pricing tags,and generally makes the store appear to look full ) Managers give employees some of the responsibility traditionally given to Management only. Sales Steer should have the stock levels down, orders kicking automatically.Feel we do their jobs too frequently. Lead the ship and let us row.
I personally wouldn’t plan your answers for an ikea interview. I’ve recently just had an interview and it’s so relaxed and they team make you feel so welcome! They are looking for people who can just be themselves and not act like they’re talking off a script. My advice would be to just go in there and say what comes to you rather than planning your answers.
I started a journey opening a new store and it was one of the best work experiences I’ve ever had.
Yes, IKEA goes on face value. You are trained there and if you really do not like it there or they feel like you are doing poorly then you can leave or they will fail your probational period
