Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) – Coventry, West Midlands – 4 February 2018
I am only a number and my time is spent travelling with job without any dignity although the best about that job is to talk to the customers but again you get told to speed up the call as it has exceeded 3 minutes so we have to rush the call and no rapport is build so it is time to change to something I can use my experience and skills on and hopefully earning commission will give me a goals and to work towards appreciation rather than just going to work and get same salary month in month out
Sales and logistics co-worker (Former Employee) – Birmingham – 3 January 2018
when i first started at IKEA it was a fun and productive place to work. everyone got along and the job was exciting. unfortunately it started to loose the fun factor and got more demanding and stressful. felt like i was becoming a robot.
Great environment to work in, surrounded by lovely co workers who push and motivate one another.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 6 December 2017
Great place to work because I really enjoyed my time at Ikea; the people I was working with who made it easier for myself, at times it never felt like work at all, rather a place where I got paid to work with friends but overall a great place to work and don’t regret anything about it.
Free lunches when the store was busy, bonus at the end of each year.
Ikea was a very professional and enjoyable place to work at; the tem was always organised and provided excellent customer when needed. I've managed to learn a lot through the guidance of my team leader and manager. In addition, a typical day at work would be doing a stock check, helping customers, answering calls and maintaining the tidiness of the store. Personally the hardest part of the job would be maintaining the store constantly during busy periods considering the amount customers that you tend to help. However, that's what makes Ikea a wonderful place to work at... by making sure customers are always satisfied and taken care of properly.
cheap lunch, team players, managers, salary, workplace in general and customers
UK and Ireland Web Technology Specialist (Current Employee) – Wembley, Greater London – 16 October 2017
IKEA is a great place to develop and learn. It is a fast paced business, especially in digital, which is quickly developing and growing. Okay benefits and salary is average, but a very secure place to work. A place where you feel respected and valued by your peers.
Job security, great co-workers, values of the company
Restaurant staff (Former Employee) – Ashton-Under-Lyne, Greater Manchester – 28 September 2017
Tasks were fairly varied given the job I had. Staff were all friendly, always felt I could ask questions if necessary. Wages were very good considering my age at the time. Management of work rotas and schedules was the main downside to the job, trying to balance shifts with college was very difficult.
Manager (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 16 September 2017
