    I worked at IKEA part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    coworkers are nice, easy to take days off

    Cons

    weird management, bad maintenance (they need a month to fix the dishing machine, it's a heavy job by manual)

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people at dish room, rotate cashiers and servers to the dishroom. It's a hard job.
