Interested in serving Swedish meatballs or putting together Billy bookcases for floor displays?
Ikea, the Swedish home furniture retailer, has started hiring 300 workers for its new Grand Prairie store that is set to open this fall.
“We are thrilled to offer interested jobseekers diverse positions with limitless opportunity at a global company known for being a great place to work,” store manager Matt Hunsicker said. “We believe it is as fun to work at Ikea as it is to shop at Ikea.”
The company said North Texans can apply online at SeeACareerWithUs.com for positions in sales, interior design, customer service, cashiers, warehouse receiving and at the Swedish Foodmarket. Ikea said it offers full medical and dental insurance to employees who work more than 20 hours a week and offer vacation, tuition assistance, a 401(k) matching plan, and a discount to shop at Ikea.
The 293,000-square-foot Grand Prairie location is under construction at the northeast corner of Interstate 20 and Texas 161. It will be the retailer’s second location in North Texas, in addition to its Frisco location which opened in 2005.
Ikea has also announced plans for a north Fort Worth location, a 289,000-square-foot store to be built at the southwest corner of Interstate 35W and North Tarrant Parkway. It is expected to open in the summer of 2019. Currently Ikea has 44 stores in the U.S. and 390 stores in 48 countries.
