My journey began when I discovered that the place I love to shop is a fabulous place to work! I joined the Beds department at IKEA as a sales co-worker and have proudly stayed in the sales department for eight years, gaining the equivalent of a master's degree in beds! My extensive experience in Beds has allowed me to have a deep knowledge of the products, the processes and specific needs of our customers. My repeat customers have always appreciated a familiar face!
If there is one thing I can predict about the average day at IKEA is that it will be unpredictable. It is critically important to be open to always learning new skills. For example, I've had the opportunity to work with the Children's Department and on a project in the showroom that helped me to learn new skills, and provides a feeling of accomplishment and pride.
There are no greater co-workers in the world than those I get to share my day with at IKEA. My team is smart, hilarious and remarkably dedicated!
