11,000 people for 300 IKEA Jobs

31 July 2007 | Ireland | 7 Responses by paul savage.

An estimated 11 thousand people turned out for interviews over the weekend for a mere 300 jobs at the Swedish furniture giant, IKEA (www.ikea.com). This is for the new store opening at the Hollywood Exchange in Belfast. Crazy isn’t it ? I can’t get my head as to why so many people would want to work there. But with further investigation it seems that IKEA are a great company to work for. via Concentration of the Wealthy , it says that IKEA pay higher wages than their competitors and offer benefits and generous wages. So does anyone know what wages they offer ? We also wonder when they will open their Dublin store.

Alan in Belfast has some good information saying that the IKEA website at www.ikea.co.uk/belfast is accepting applications until August 8th (2007).

    […] if they are stupid enough to think that I, as a blogger can help them get jobs at SuperValu or a job at IKEA then they don’t diserve a reply. Sometimes people try to paste their CVs in reply to blog […]

    That’s not how you spell “deserve”.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist it. 🙂
