Managerial Positions’ Description

IKEA is willing to endow its employees with authority and power, opening many managerial positions in its stores and offices. Its employees exercise leadership across all departments. If you aspire to be a manager at IKEA, you can apply for the following roles:

  • Distribution service managers organize the storage and distribution of furniture and appliances. In this role, you will ensure that the right piece of furniture or decoration is delivered to the right location and on time. You may also supervise transportation, take stock control, and monitor the general flow of items. Distribution service managers also coordinate the whole supply chain, mediating between suppliers of wood, manufacturers, retailers, and customers.
  • Operational support managers provide customers and other employees of IKEA with technical support. As an operation support manager, you will be responsible for managing daily technical operations for the company by collecting and analyzing metrics, and assessing efficiency and proficiency of the entire Support Department. You will give directions to the support team and resolve escalated operational problems.
  • Store Managers are in charge of overseeing employees and operations at IKEA. As IKEA’s store manager, you will manage and schedule staff and associates. You will train and supervise newly hired employees, interview job candidates, and extend job offers. You will make certain that sales are reconciled, transactions are closed, and deposits are arranged. You will also be responsible for ensuring that all operations in IKEA are carried out according to required procedures and standards.

How many questions does the PI Behavioral Assessment contain?

There are no standard questions on the PI Behavioral Assessment test. Instead, you will be presented with an extensive list of different adjectives. You will need to choose appropriate adjectives twice: first, you select adjectives that describe you as you see yourself; second, you choose adjectives that you think describe you as seen through the eyes of others. Note that the PI test focuses solely on your professional and management traits; it does not try to evaluate your personality and attitudes.
