You are never alone in it

IKEA grows as all its co-workers develop and grow. We support our new colleagues at the beginning of their career providing them with a wide range of internal training and help from a mentor from among their colleagues who they can turn to whenever they need some explanation.

We learn and grow

Every co-worker also has an opportunity to prepare their personal plan of development in which their manager will help them to stipulate where they would like to proceed in the years to come or what kind of work they would like to try. However, if you want to stay in your current position as an expert and specialist for several years, it's also possible. Everything is up to you.

What our co-workers say about working at IKEA?

Have a look at stories of our co-workers what it is like to work at IKEA, what they like about our company, and what they had worried about before they started working with us.

Where do you think you have the advantage compared to your younger colleagues?

Certain dispassionate point of view can be considered advantageous, and my experience, plus the fact that I can give my colleagues some advice. I take thinks more easy and I know that everything can be solved. I would say I am more of a diplomatist than my younger colleagues. Customers are often glad that there is an elder person on the sales floor and they can choose who will help them.

What would you recommend to someone at your age who is thinking about working at IKEA or is preparing for a recruitment process at IKEA?

Don’t be afraid and try it. If necessary, the others will always help you. You can manage and learn every kind of work with such support. Go to IKEA for the recruitment procedure and you will see what it is like and that there is nothing to be afraid of.

What do you like the most about IKEA as an employer?

I appreciate the mutual politeness and thoughtfulness among the colleagues in the company. Also how every co-worker and their opinions are respected. Unlike at the time when I started working here nowadays the collective at IKEA is more of a mixture of colleagues of different ages.

What do you appreciate the most, where do you think IKEA offers more advantages and support to its 50+ co-workers compared with other employers?

At IKEA the elder colleagues are esteemed highly and my colleagues respect me. It’s very important for me. I feel younger thanks to the collective around me. Even at my age can I learn and develop, which is great.

What were your biggest worries when you were new in your position that turned out to be pointless later?

I was afraid of English and working with computers. But thanks to my colleagues and the possibility to take part in trainings and educational programmes I coped with everything without problems. Now I know that I don`t need English so much in my position and I have learnt to use computers and I`m good at it.

Customer Services deparment co-worker

Where do you think you have the advantage compared to your younger colleagues?

Personally I don’t see my age as an obstacle when performing my profession but rather as an advantage. Thanks to my long experience I can easily help customers and give some advice to my younger colleagues. So I think and feel that thanks to my age I can contribute to the company.

What would you recommend to someone at your age who is thinking about working at IKEA or is preparing for a recruitment process at IKEA?

Some people may worry that they learn and get used to new things more slowly. This worry, however, is futile. Just don’t be afraid, come and try it. Be yourself, don’t pretend. Every piece of experience counts and if you haven’t succeeded today, you may succeed tomorrow.

Zdeněk

What do you like the most about IKEA as an employer?

Even as a customer a fell in love with IKEA. The atmosphere here was always nice. As a co-worker I appreciate the corporal culture and values. We help each other and can rely on each other.

What do you appreciate the most, where do you think IKEA offers more advantages and support to its 50+ co-workers compared with other employers?

I appreciate when my employer cares for people and their needs. I’m glad that IKEA employes people of all age categories. This way we can learn from each other and use the knowledge for our personal development.

What were your biggest worries when you were new in your position that turned out to be pointless later?

However, when I started working here I was afraid of communicating in English. But there always was a colleague to help me out. IKEA then helped me attend English classes. Now I know there’s nothing to be afraid of. We are a team and we always join our forces to avoid miscommunication with our customers.

What is your job title?

Check-out department manager

14 years at IKEA

What were your biggest worries when you were new in your position that turned out to be pointless later?

Everything was perfectly new for me so I did worry. I was nervous about my new job and my ability to gel with quite a big collective and cope well in my new position. However, I soon ceased to worry as I felt support from all around me. My then superior was interested in how I was doing during my first days and weeks at work. All my new colleagues were helping me, the HR departement was very helpful with their really personal approach to every co-worker.

Where do you think you have the advantage compared to your younger colleagues?

I have had some experience, I’m loyal and I appreciate a good job. I don’t have to look after small children anymore although that also could be balanced with work at IKEA thanks to the possibility of part time jobs, etc. That definitely is another advantage offered by IKEA.

What do you appreciate the most, where do you think IKEA offers more advantages and support to its 50+ co-workers compared with other employers?

Tell them not to worry about anything and be themselves, although I know that being nervous may play a part. And I would certainly recommend IKEA.

What do you like the most about IKEA as an employer?

IKEA provides the background of a strong company being helpful and fair to its co-workers who have many opportunities to find their role in different spheres. Even the recruitment procedure was very different from what I had known before IKEA. I like the fact that it is always possible to speak about everything not only with my superior but also with the director or other managers. It’s not unusual to see the director or someone from the company management selling products in a department or helping at the check-out or unpacking goods dressed in a yellow work t-shirt. I can’t imagine this happening elsewhere. There are many reasons why I’m still very happy at IKEA even after all those years.

What do you appreciate the most, where do you think IKEA offers more advantages and support to its 50+ co-workers compared with other employers?

At IKEA it’s not your age but your abilities and skills that matter. You can be sure that although over 50 you can still be beneficial to your employer. I’m not afraid I might lose my job because of my age. At IKEA all without exception have the chance to develop and grow and it depends only on their abilities and effort.

IKEA is a stable international company with an informal corporate culture and warm working environment. We want our co-workers to feel fine and enjoy their work. Fortunately we manage to make it happen.
