    I worked at IKEA part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -decent pay over weekends -an excellent workplace at some other stores, depends on the management and culture

    Cons

    - Serious bullying complaints go unattended due to favouritism of managers. - Culture of managers making the workplace unbearable for part time staff who they no longer wish to keep (due to low contract hours/illness) until they get fed up and leave on their own accord. -Poor HR escalation process acts as a barrier so staff cant speak to hr directly
