The start of my relationship with MEGA dates back to the autumn of 2006. I was studying and working part-time in a cleaning company that serviced a new MEGA shopping centre in Nizhny Novgorod. I cleaned floors at night shifts, so the general saying, “his career began from the very bottom” clearly applies to me in every way. Some may say that it was not the most prestigious kind of work but I fell in love with the place nonetheless!
After my graduation, I got a job as an engineering specialist in a service company. The chief engineer of MEGA Nizhny Novgorod could see my work attitude every day and soon he offered me to become a part of MEGA administration’s team. In one year’s time I was responsible for all fire safety equipment— one of the most complex, large scale and interesting systems in our building.
What is the most exciting thing about working in IKEA Centres Russia? It is not only the trust people put in you or the responsibility that you have, but the real chance to bring your ideas to life, to express and realise yourself.
For example, I managed to successfully analyse and improve water consumption in MEGA Nizhny Novgorod and now we save over a million roubles per year. You can see the results of your work and it makes you feel proud.
What am I working on right now? Come and meet me, and I will tell you!
