It was in Älmhult that it once began and where we are now facing a new exciting future in the heart of the IKEA world with Småland's largest and unique IKEA hotel. Do you want to join us on a journey beyond the ordinary?
IKEA Hotell is in the heart of IKEA, Älmhult. We have been here since 1964 and was built for IKEAs customer to stay a bit longer. Now, about 50 years later we are a business hotel with around 40 coworkers. We welcome guests from near and far. We are serving meatballs, making beds, and acts as the natural meeting place and social hub in Älmhult. Now, with greater capacity than ever we fully focus on the needs of our guests! The restaurant can hold up to about 200 guests and we are serving both breakfast, lunch and dinner. We get our inspiration from the Scandinavian cuisine and our raw materials from the larder of Småland. Whenever possible, we use organic products to provide you with a tasty and satisfying culinary experience.
In the role as a waiter/waitress it’s important for you to feel confident in taking initiative for customer contact. You like to maximize sales and profitability and to reach goals together with the rest of the team. You are flexible and open for changes and takes great responsibility in us succeeding. You have a passion for culinary experiences. One of the most important part of the job is to give the guests a positive experience at IKEA Hotel. Truly great service is built on a genuine desire to please and satisfy the guest. If you have a service mind-set, you will understand the importance of what you do and how it impacts our guests.
Our guests will visit us during evenings and weekends. For us, this means that we work together to make this possible because, apart from daytime, we work regularly in the evenings, weekends and early mornings. When the hotel and restaurant are full of guests, they should be met by employees who love the extra pulse and the higher pace that comes with the job.
