    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zara in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in person and on that day I talked to the store manager who asked, "Why Zara?"

    Three days later, I received a call asking me to come in for an interview.

    It was very causal and I spoke with assistant manager about my previous experience and what I knew about Zara. I talked to the store manager after her and he only asked about my availability because we've talked on my first visit when i wasn't as prepared.

    He said he will call whether i got the job or not, but he didn't.

    Be prepared guys.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Zara.

    Interview

    Applied in store. Handed the application to the department manager right there along with resume. Got asked right as I handing in the application, "Why do you want to work for Zara?". Went home, got a call to schedule an interview for two days later. Went in for an interview (along with another candidate) with the Assistant Manager. Three questions were asked. The whole interview last less than 15 minutes and were told that we'll receive a call in a couple days. No call received.
    In my opinion, that was not enough time to get to know the candidates. Sometimes, it's not the interviewee, but it just a bad interviewer.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Zara.

    Interview

    The same day that I applied online, I received an email to go in on a group interview the next day. There were about 25 people waiting. We were asked to fill out a simple application and wait. We were supposed to be there at 4pm, but the interview started at around 4:45pm. Then we were called in to be interviewed individually. The interview was pretty simple; they asked a question or two. Then we were told that we will be contacted soon to let us know if we got the second interview. About a couple of hours later I received another email which asked me to come in 2 days later for the Final interview. There were probably about 30-40 people there. Again, we were called in for another one on one interview. she asked only one question; why I would be a good fit as a sales associate. From there, some people left the room and the rest stayed. All the people who were asked to stay got a job offer.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty laid back and it only lasted maybe 15 minutes at most. Simple questions about previous retail experience and what would you like to gain from Zara. They also asked what we liked about the store.
