    I worked at IKEA part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly simple job to master with lots of support and training and wonderful co-workers. IKEA as a company was great to work for with lots of perks and from what I saw, treated their employees well.

    Cons

    Things unrelated to the company and things that would be related to any retail job such as rude customers and children that did not like to listen.

    I have been working at IKEA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    co-worker discount, subsidized meal

    Cons

    Salary doesn't match the work load, there is no life balance, managers do not appreciate what you do and most of the time give only bad feedback, most of the managers just stay in the office instead of helping their co-workers on the floor and managers take very long breaks. Sometimes there is no motivation to work.

    Advice to Management

    Please, review the wages for replenishment and activities co-worker. Both positions require a lot of physical work. Co-workers get hurt often and the wage is no fair for the type of work and work load
