What questions did they ask during your interview at IKEA?They are Cov19 updated the department manager invites you to a zoom style one to one live chat now not a face to face interview. There is live fee visual and sound which lasts up to 30 mins. Usually around 20mins in reality. The questions are double-barrelled at times and you really need to think hard. They start with general introductions , and the manager will follow a set of scripted questions for all roles. The interviewer will take handwritten notes throughout . They start off by describing the role and warm you up by asking 1) Tell me a little bit about yourself. What you've done in the past. Where you are looking to be in a years time. What's brought you to apply to Ikea today? 2) How do you think you can create a positive customer experience in the role you've applied for? 3) In most jobs, there is a standard way of working. Have you ever had to change your approach to deal with a situation? 4) Can you tell me about a time that you've taken responsibility for anything? 5) Can you describe a project or team task you done and what role YOU played in it? 6) What does "Caring for People and Planet" mean for you? 7) What does " Simplicity" mean to you ;and have you made a way of working more efficiently and more straight-forward? 8) What does "Cost Conscious" mean to you? And therefore, if I gave you £1000 just now ,what would you spend it on? 9) What does "Renewing and Improving" mean to you , and how do you apply this to the workplace? 10) How do you lead by example? 11) How do you think YOU can deliver a fantastic customer service experience within an Ikea store?

What is the organisational culture at IKEA?IKEA is still figuring out how to run smoother in the realm of Merchandising Basics. ( a broad job that checks stock levels, cleans/organizes areas, fills add on's, pricing tags,and generally makes the store appear to look full ) Managers give employees some of the responsibility traditionally given to Management only. Sales Steer should have the stock levels down, orders kicking automatically.Feel we do their jobs too frequently. Lead the ship and let us row.

Yes, IKEA goes on face value. You are trained there and if you really do not like it there or they feel like you are doing poorly then you can leave or they will fail your probational period
