    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at IKEA part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, friendly work culture, respect from management for the work coworkers do, hands-on management style, good to students

    Cons

    HR often doesn't complete tasks you need them to do, they do not read emails thus respond with unhelpful information, they often do not act on information given on staff members who are toxic, they are non-confrontational to the point that it impacts their ability to do their job. A simple question (eg. Can I change my availability) takes 10 emails back and forth half of which are unrelated to the question (eg. They respond with information on changing jobs not changing availability)... and in the end the form they said they'd send doesn't get sent in a timely manner and it impacts you.
