IKEA Interview

Properly preparing for your interview takes more than a quick google search to find top interview questions. There are a number of factors to bear in mind before walking into the face-to-face. Learn all that you can about the company and its culture, take a look at the company’s social media outlets (FB and Twitter) to better get acquainted. Contemplate your skills, accomplishments and prepare numbers and statistics to show off what you have done. Lastly, practice a question and answer period in front of friends or the mirror, so the answers will roll of your tongue during the live interview.


IKEA Assessment Centre Preparation

Aiming to hire the most professional and knowledgeable people, many employers consider interviewing job applicants an insufficient means of determining their suitability for a position. Even pre-employment testing, a popular way of sifting through job candidates, does not guarantee that the right person will be hired. What largely increases chances of weeding out wrong candidates is a combination of such tasks and activities as group discussions, presentations, role-playing, social events, case studies, and psychometric and various written tests. This combination is achieved at assessment centres that host pre-employment events to which prospective employees are invited to demonstrate their professional aptitude individually and in groups. The length of such pre-employment events at assessment centres varies from several hours to a couple of days. While performing different activities, job applicants are expected to show such traits as adaptability, analytical thinking, commercial awareness, creativity, leadership, and good time management. There is a strict elimination at every stage of the assessment process, so not every job candidate arrives to the final interview with high managers that, if they are favourably impressed, may bring an invitation to become an employee in their organization.

What Is the IKEA's Panel Interview?

A panel interview is a part of the IKEA's face-to-face interview that usually takes place in one of its locations. Unlike other in-person interviews during which you talk to one or maximum two recruiters, the panel interview presupposes an interview with four or five people simultaneously. Usually, you will have a conversation with a Human Resources representative, with managers of several departments, your prospective managers, and team leaders. Questions asked in the panel interview are usually competency-based. But you can also expect situational questions, in answering which you will need to describe a situation where you encountered and successfully solved a problem by taking certain actions. If you apply for a technical position, you may also be asked technical questions aimed to evaluate your professionalism. The panel interview may last up to several hours.

How Long Should an Applicant Stay at an Assessment Centre?

The length of an event at an assessment centre varies from company to company. Some companies invite job candidates to their assessment centres for several hours, letting them go home in the afternoon; some organize more prolonged events that require applicants’ presence at the assessment centre for two full days. When you are invited for two days, you will be provided with accommodation in a nearby hotel. Bear in mind, however, that if you are asked to come for a full day or for two days to the company’s assessment centre, this does not mean that you will stay till the end. Pre-employment events have many stages, after each of which less successful candidates become eliminated and sent home. Only most suitable applicants remain at the assessment centre until the closure of the event and have a final interview with the company’s high managers.
