Whether you're looking for seasonal work or a full-time gig, Ikea is hiring hundreds of workers right now. The furniture retailer is hosting on-site hiring events at stores all across the U.S., so if you're a fan of their products (and looking to make some extra cash), make sure you're available this week for an interview! You can find out which locations are hosting events and what positions each specific location is hiring for by checking out the Ikea website. More than 40 locations are hosting hiring events, all taking place on Nov. 9 from 2-8 p.m. All you have to do to apply is fill out an online form for the position you're interested in, and then show up in person for your interview this Thursday. Ikea says they will also have applications available on-site, too, so all you really have to do is show up! There are open positions in sales, customer service, food service and more. They're hiring in Texas, Colorado, Missouri and dozens of states across the country. You can find a location near you on the hiring event page. According to Ikea, they're hiring passionate individuals who appreciate the values of the Ikea company. "We come from all over the world but we share an inspiring vision: 'to create a better everyday life for the many people.' How we realize this vision is based on our shared humanistic values. These values are the foundation of our work and our inclusive, empathizing, open and honest culture," the job listing reads. "Working with us is like working with your friends. Our culture is based on the spirit of togetherness, enthusiasm and fun. And we're always looking for people who share our positive attitude and values."

If you think you could be a fit for any of these positions, make sure you've got your resume printed out and head into your local Ikea on Nov. 9. If you work more than 20 hours a week, you'll also be eligible for health insurance, a "generous" 401(k) plan, an additional retirement plan, tuition assistance, an Ikea discount and more, according to the Ikea website.
