“The IKEA job interviewer said, ‘Welcome! Come in and make a seat‘“

"IKEA Job Interview” is the title of a much-reprinted cartoon, cited in print since at least 2006. “Please have a seat.” the interviewer says. The interviewee sees the seat parts on the floor, ready to be assembled.

“Job Interview at #IKEA ‘Make a seat and sit down’ #lamejoke” was posted on Twitter by Malte Brill on October 21, 2009. “If you go for a job interview at IKEA, are you asked to come in and make a seat?” was posted on Twitter by Ash Warner on April 18, 2012. “#Ikea Job interview: Make a seat, then take a seat” was posted on Twitter by ChaiNotCoffee on October 17, 2013.


Wikipedia: IKEA
IKEA (/aɪˈkiːə/, Swedish: [ɪ²keːa]) is a Swedish-founded multinational group, that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances and home accessories. It has been the world’s largest furniture retailer since at least 2008. It was founded in Sweden in 1943 by then-17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad, who was listed by Forbes in 2015 as one of the ten richest people in the world, worth more than $40 billion.
