IKEA U.S. to Host First-Ever National ‘Career Meet & Greet’ Event on April 7th

IKEA U.S. recently announced its first-ever National ‘Career Meet & Greet’ hiring event will take place on Thursday, April 7th in all 41 IKEA U.S. stores and four distribution centers. To support current growth plans, IKEA U.S. plans to hire more than 2,000 co-workers.* Open positions include hourly permanent and seasonal opportunities.

The ‘Career Meet & Greet’ hiring event will take place in all IKEA store restaurants and four distribution centers. Here greeters will introduce applicants to hiring managers for informal interviews. These managers will discuss IKEA values, potential openings and what it’s like to work for a company listed on the 2016 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list. If there is interest and a good fit, the candidate will be called back for an interview the following week.

IKEA aims to be a great place to work and was recently recognized on several national lists. IKEA offers co-workers living wages based on local living costs. There is also three week out scheduling, and benefits above industry standard, as well as significant career advancement opportunities. In fact, 75-90 percent of senior managers at a store level are promoted from within. And as of July 2015, the average tenure of an IKEA co-worker is 5 years, which is well above industry and U.S. workforce average.

The local IKEA is located at 400 Alan Wood Road in Conshohocken.
