JYSK delivers a great Scandinavian offer for everyone within sleeping and living. With a passion for Scandinavian design, our products range from furniture to accessories, including mattresses, bedding, and outdoor products that will enhance any living space with a sense of sophistication at affordable prices.
JYSK is a global business, but we continue to operate based on our Scandinavian roots. This is reflected in our company culture and the way we do business.
I joined JYSK back in 2002. I was drawn to the opportunities a larger company would provide and as a customer, I loved the products JYSK carried.
Since day one, the most rewarding part of my job has been getting to meet and work with amazing people – from head office, to store colleagues, to regular customers. I love the fact that JYSK provides a dynamic, multicultural, and constantly changing environment. I have never felt stagnant or uninspired at work, and I appreciate the ongoing challenges and opportunities for personal growth and skill development.
With a positive attitude, hard work, and dedication, the possibilities for anyone joining JYSK are limitless!

I have been at JYSK since October of 2015. Meeting my prospective manager and hearing his values and goals for JYSK made me instantly want to become a part of the company.
Throughout my career at JYSK, I have enjoyed continuous career growth and the opportunity to work with incredible colleagues and management. Constant progress and improvements in the Distribution Centre, combined with the knowledge that I am a part of something much bigger, have kept me with the organization.
I love the fact that JYSK provides incredible support and a rewarding work environment. From my experience, the work and effort you put in gets returned ten-fold!

I joined JYSK in 2002, just as its second Winnipeg store was preparing to open.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to grow and fill various roles, from Visual Merchandiser to Store Manager. Today, I am in a position where I can impact and support our colleagues on a much larger scale through training and development. Our team works hard to ensure our colleagues have the knowledge and direction they need to be successful in their roles.
If you are committed and passionate about customer service, and open to learning and working within a team, JYSK provides endless opportunities for career growth!
