Ikea is a good place to work. The place inspires everyone with its wonderful design concepts and beautifully crafted furniture range. Working for Ikea has taught me how to handle difficult customers and make quick decisions and to find solutions in the most efficient and cost-effective ways.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Singapore – May 4, 2018
As I belong to the kitchen department, I learn new things almost every day as we interact with different kinds of customers everyday. Not only we have to know our product, we also have to know the technical side of it in terms of dismantling existing cabinets and fixing new ones. We are a team of 9, and being the youngest, I am always carefully guided and most relied on for ad-hoc duties. I enjoy the culture in IKEA as it always bring every together. It is filled with positive people and positive environment and that would be enough to get through a hard day.
Part-time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Alexandra – February 27, 2018
First job in the year 2010, while waiting for O-level results. I would strongly encourage adolescents to expose themselves in an exuberant yet challenging retail environment like IKEA to obtain useful life skills such as, but not limiting to, customer relations, stress management, working in teams etc.

It a good place to work, although im just an intern, it fun job, get to learn the culture, the colleagues are friendly & others. Then there's alot of department it like a maze, but slowly we know which department that we belongs to, we get use to it, then everyday we will have to face different challenges & customers, to satisfy customers needs or wants.
Check Out Cashier (Former Employee) – Alexandra – September 12, 2017
I was a part time checkout cashier at that time, and I really wanted to feel how working was like. I was only 16 at that time, and I was given shifts that started as early as 10am, and ended at around 11pm-12am. It was mentally and physically draining. However, the interaction between fellow colleagues and the hard work of earning money really paid off.
Free drinks, Fun colleagues
No consideration for young people like me, long working hours, not flexible

CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Singapore – June 28, 2017
Ikea was my first job in Singapore.I stayed with them for 5years plus but i have to grab a better salary offered by telco company. Ikea is a family they treat their staff as one big family..even long working hours it was enjoyable.Hardest part of the job is to please a customer and bend some rules just to make them happy and satisfied..
free lunch.recognitions and outings.with lots of benefits
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Alexandra Estate – February 4, 2016
i feel very belonged working in Ikea even though i was just an intern there. The environment is different from other jobs that i work in. Everyone is like the same especially with the same uniform even though there are different ranks of people.
The workload is definitely tough. It was something new for me working as a sales assistant but with the guidance from my team leader, everything goes smoothly. Its the people there that makes me feel motivated to go to work everyday even though we know we are going to face a tough day.
The people are the success in IKEA as the passion to continually improve each day and to genuinely delight our customers. We constantly are on the way. The management team consist of 7 who drive the business from a commercial aspect in a steering group forum. Opinions are far and wide so everyone has a buy to the decisions we make for the business and the co-workers.
Through tough times the enjoyable part is all banding together to find a solution for the business needs and this is truly fulfilling.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Tampines – September 26, 2012
Everyday is a learning journey for me. I have learned a lot not only in my sections and departments but also from other sections and departments too. The co-workers and the managers there are so friendly and approachable, and, we motivate and help each other in solving issues. The hardest part of the job is to entertain the nasty customers, but it is not that hard when the managers and seniors are there to help so to not jam up the long queue.
