Ikea starts hiring * Swedish home furnishings retailer Ikea started taking applications for nearly 300 jobs to staff its new store, set to open this fall in St. Louis. The jobs, which include 60 food-service positions, are posted online at ikea-usa.com, and applications can be submitted at the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment office at 1520 Market Street, 3rd Floor, downtown. The job postings will remain online for two weeks, then Ikea will focus on interviewing candidates, store manager John Achillea told the Post-Dispatch. "We've had a great response already," he said, adding the store plans to be fully staffed upon opening. An opening date has not been set. The company pays what it calls a "living wage" that is above minimum wage but did not disclose a salary range; perks include a 15 percent store discount. Ikea has more than 14,000 employees in the U.S. and 147,000 globally, and employees have the ability to transfer to other stores, said spokesman Joseph Roth.

Kaldi's recalls sleeves * Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Co. is recalling paper coffee cup sleeves that can ignite when used in a microwave. St. Louis-based Kaldi's is recalling 700,000 Java Jacket Disposable Cup Sleeves used before April that came free with 12- ounce and 16-ounce hot drinks purchased at Missouri Kaldi's cafes from February 2014 through March 2015. The black disposable sleeves have "Kaldi's Coffee" and its logo printed on the front and "100% Recycled Paperboard" printed on the back. Kaldi's said it removed all potentially affected sleeves from its company-owned cafes in March, within 24 hours of being notified of the fire hazard. "The sleeves that were affected by this recall should have been removed from circulation several months ago, but if you have an old sleeve in your possession and aren't sure when you received it, please dispose of it," the company said. Kaldi's has about a dozen stores in St. Louis, Columbia and Kansas City. Customers can call 1-888- 892-6333 or visit the website kaldiscoffee.com for more information.
