Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Coventry, West Midlands4 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
Pros
Free Lunches and Chrismas Presents
Cons
Job has not got dignity

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London6 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.
Pros
Free lunches when the store was busy, bonus at the end of each year.
Cons
Long hours and can get extremely busy.

productive and fun environment
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Milton Keynes4 November 2017
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.
Pros
cheap lunch, team players, managers, salary, workplace in general and customers

Nice place to work
Restaurant staff (Former Employee) –  Ashton-Under-Lyne, Greater Manchester28 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.
Pros
Lunch discounts, wages, other staff
Cons
Shift patterns, holidays
