    Stock Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Zara in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview Process was during a week long hiring event. I went to the store and asked for a manager. She had me fill out a short application and then asked me a few questions about what position I wanted to work. Once that was discussed she had me talk to a manager in the department I would be working in. He asked me to tell him about myself and my retail experience? Why did I want to work for Zara? What were my future goals? What was my availability? He offered me a position on the spot and I filled out my paperwork that day.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Zara in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    As a student who recently graduated from high school and going to college, its tough to find a job especially if you have no work experiences whatsoever. They were having an open call at my area so I gave it a try. I went at the store and I introduced myself theb one of the workers took me in an area and told me to fill out an application. As soon as I filled that out I was interviewed by the Mens department manager and the Womens department manager right away. The questions weren't that hard but I highly suggest doing your research first and make sure you are prepared. Also make sure you have a resume in hand because they will ask you.I wore black skinnys with a dress shirt and high heels that day. After the interview they told me they would call me within a week. I waited for them to call but I never got any calls. So I went in the middle of the week and spoke to a different manager and told her about my case and that they would get in touch with me if I got the job but I never got any call. So she told me to fill out an application again and interviewed me there for 5 minutes on the spot. She was a very nice manager. After the interview she said she would call me if I got the job in a couple of days. The next day she called me and offered me the job and I gladly accepted it.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Zara.

    Interview Details

    One day I decided to go in and apply for a job. I was fortunate that I met a friendly lady associate that carries the title "Mentor". She handed me an application form that I had to send in with my resume, I did and I got a call back maybe a few days later. Interviewing was fine, I had an interview with one of the assistant manager and I got a call back just a few hours later informing me that I was hired. I wasn't questioned much about anything basically. I was only asked about my previous job experience as a cashier and my favorite past time hobbies. Oh and also why do I want to work at Zara.

    Have resume available with when coming in to ask for an application.
    They'll call if interested. I'd give it a few days before calling.
    Short, typical interview. They'll ask you about your interest in Zara and fashion in general. Dress like the brand, trendy but business appropriate, it'll show you have sense of fashion.
    Know the company and the designers they get there inspirations from.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Zara in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty unprofessional as far as a "Job Fair" goes. They had 2 people they recently promoted from the sales floor as "HR". They had 2 tables and were conducting group interviews of 3. The visual interviewer had no real idea or information about the visual department, positions for growth besides becoming a manager, the hours of the position, or the actual LOCATIONS of the stores that are hiring. At first I thought when she said the LA area she was just speaking in general. When I asked her specifically which stores, she got Snarky and said "its the whole La area will that be a problem?" Uhhh LA is a big place. The whole point of a job fair is to represent actual available jobs with locations, and maybe even have a business card or something. Not to waste peoples time with un qualified interviewers, who didnt think to make a phone call, send an email or request a memo on the positions your having an"job fair" for.
