Get Paid to Play: IKEA's Hiring Spree Hits Roblox!

IKEA is throwing out the traditional application process and offering real money for playtime! The furniture giant is diving headfirst into the world of gaming with a brand new Roblox experience called "The Co-Worker." But this isn't your average virtual hangout.  

IKEA is actually hiring 10 gamers to be paid employees within the game!

That's right, ditch the resume and dust off your avatar. These lucky players will earn the London hourly wage of £13.15 (roughly $17 USD) to tackle tasks like serving up virtual meatballs or rearranging furniture in the digital showroom.

But wait, there's more!  This isn't just about fun and games (although, there will definitely be some of that). IKEA sees this as a way to showcase their unique work culture, where employees can "change roles, switch departments, and grow in any direction they choose," according to Darren Taylor, the country, people, and culture manager for IKEA UK and Ireland. Apparently, that direction now includes navigating the virtual world of Roblox!

Ready to ditch reality and become a paid IKEA employee (in the metaverse)?  The game is open to everyone, with applications for the paid positions available now. Just make sure you're over 18, live in the UK or Ireland, and are ready to ace your virtual interview! 

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your controller and get ready to assemble a whole new kind of career!
