IKEA is a wonderful place to help you grow and progress within your personal development. I worked there for 2 years and 10 months. It helped me to move on and go further with my career. However, I felt it was time to leave when management went down hill and lots of rules changed on the way we should work. I worked in the call centre, for 1 and 1/2 years, and had to change departments. Everyone was leaving due to how challenging working on the phones were, you can be a strong person and still feel mentally and physically drained with several inbound escalates and serious complaints day in day out.
It can be very stressful but a rewarding job with all the benefits and bonuses you get. You learn many thing and get training when you wish to go further.
I relocated to Email correspondence department and was there for a year, it was brilliant! Getting to communicate with your co-workers if you needed help or clarification on whether you are following the right process. Help was always available and eveyone at IKEA is like a family. It was more laid back and there was no rush. You could spend more time making sure all customers are dealt with properly.
I would go back to IKEA, if management was like it used to be and everyone didn't have to be multi skilled (emails,social media,webchat and frontline calls) as the reason I left was not being able to put myself under the stress of having to go 10 hours on the phone any day of the week, when resources were low.
