    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Zara.

    Interview Details

    The interview was in the middle of the sales floor! I thought it was very unprofessional, they didn't even introduce themselves. The interview at the job fair was group interview. Then they call you back for another interview and it's another group interview.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwich, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwich, CT
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Zara.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application, was called back for an interview. The interview was very laid back and didn't seem to follow a specific guideline. It was basically a conversation where the manager asked me of my previous retail experience and my interest in fashion. It's kind of up to you, as the interviewee, to link everything back to Zara. You must have a sense of fashion. MUST. Know your personal style, know designers who exude this style, know trends of the season and do research about the company. If you're already involved in fashion, this is an easy interview...if not, know what you're getting yourself into.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions related to fashion. I already am familiar with the fashion industry to nothing threw me off-guard.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zara.

    Interview Details

    saw an announcement on Craigslist about a hiring/interviewing day -- I was interviewed with 4 other people with the manager. Basic questions about resume and experience. I got called the same day. It helps if you're young or are fashionable/trendy. I dressed in all black [similar to the Zara employee uniform] and I was very friendly. This was also my first job and they hired me and not the other 4 people I interviewed with who had experience

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Zara in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    They called me about 3-4 months after applying. I had a group interview with four other people and it was easygoing. The manager and store staff were friendly and welcoming. The whole interview only lasted about 20 minutes.

    I don't know exactly what they look for, seeing that I'm a college graduate with retail and fashion experience, and I was the most qualified of the group, yet I wasn't offered a position. However, I still think it's a great company to work for if given the opportunity.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty basic and straight forward: why do you want to work here? Tell me about yourself...   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zara.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a cashier or sales associate online for zara. Four days late I got an email inviting me for a group interview. It was pretty intimidating, everyone was dresses professionaly and there were around 20 people applying. The question where "what is the difference between good customer service and excellent customer service?" "What do you like about zara" "what are the qualities a cashier should have?". After the group interview, I got a call that night telling me I had the second interview the next day, it was me and two other people. I had the interview and the manager basically went through my employment history. Later she told me she'll give me a call if I ve been sucessful but I haven't received anything yet. But it was a pretty easy interview.
