When I first started working at Ikea I saw myself staying there for a long time, but as it's progressed I have seen how unhappy all of the coworkers are and how many complaints people have about their managers. There are good people in management positions but they are totally outweighed by the bad, rude, and fake people. There is a bad atmosphere and people are scared to do something wrong.
Managers will treat you like a dumb child, patronise you and micromanage you instead of letting you get on with your job. Management will take polite feedback as a personal attack instead of accepting that there are things they need to do better. Processes will change all the time and the change will not be communicated properly.
The staff canteen is full of barely edible fast food thats been reheated god knows how many times. The free 'healthy' option is never healthy, it's just the cheapest stuff they could throw in the microwave.
Other departments or stores might be different, but I wouldn't recommend working at my store to anyone.
The best thing about the job and the reason I've lasted as long as have is the people I work alongside.
badly planned rotas, management, micromanaging
