I liked working there I’d love to go back as the day working there was good you
Had a good chart with the lads and the work there was good I used to take all the wood to the lads and the I went on to the peeping table
Fantastic place to work to get a start on the job ladder, this company pays more than the min wage has a good pension scheme and holidays. The only down side is they may want you to work three out of four weekends and its hard to get a full time contract.
Good family environment, fast paced and stressful job role.
Always demand on you to do more than you should with no thanks, management pick favourites and then the rest get all the bad jobs with none of the benefits you could get if developed. They like to keep you where they want you.
Rota's resemble something out the 1980's and the pressure is always there.
Stressful and incompetent teams cause major issues throughout.
I have worked here for nearly 2 years. You make really good friends. The pay is good, it £9.30 an hour. Its always busy so you always have something to do. It gives you lots of opportunities and is full of challenges.
Ikea can be stressful but its generally a good working environment. The different departments do help each other out sometimes but most of the time your team is strong enough to get the job done. They provide all tools on site and you get a discount on breakfast and lunch.
Good hourly rate, much better than the minimum wage. There is a disconnect between departments so it can be hard to make friends. There seems to be a high turnover of staff and I'm not sure if this is because they employ a lot of students or if it has anything to do with the shift system, which is fairly inflexible. Rotas given out 4 weeks in advance, holidays must be booked a year in advance.
Management is horrendous at IKEA They are so disorganised and are only out for themselves and as much as they say they look after employees they lie. Work-life balance is also terrible No contracted days meaning you can’t organise anything in advance of a week as the rota comes out a week before
