    I worked at IKEA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent benefits for part-time employees, employee discount, flexible schedule (Somewhat), and PTO for part-time employees as well.

    Cons

    Well, IKEA needs to hire more staff and put more resources into the food department (Bistro). That way, customers and employees will be happier.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at IKEA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of great coworkers. Benefits available for part-time coworkers (21-34 hours/week).

    Cons

    Compensation issues - pay methodology is not transparent and causes low morale. Company ideals of inclusiveness and zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior, (e.g., racism, harassment, intolerance) are not effectively enforced. Schedules are a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    If you want feedback, be prepared to hear things you do not like. Don't shoot the messenger.

    I worked at IKEA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co workers excellent to work with, IKEa recruits certain types of people which makes most people recruited very easy to get along with. Management also very happy to work with you to aid in external commitments.

    Cons

    Not easy to get a full time contract. Employ mostly part time staff and get them to work more hours
