    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online and they emailed me back on same day and invited me to a group interview. There were like 30 people in the group like me. They make you fill out an application form and after that they take everyone in a small room and someone from the recruiter team is asking interview questions to every single person one by one. Questions are basic and simple interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • There is no unexpected questions if you practice a little bit before you go,i promise you will be fine. They ask why you want to work for them and what are your strengths and stuff. They didn't ask more than 4 questions to every person. Really short and simple but this is only for the group interview. I did not do an individual interview with them.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Zara in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their inditex website. i had applied to a position many time before and hadn't heard anything back, so i was really surprised when i received an email to come in for a group interview. It was a new store opening, so they were really looking for people. i dressed in all black and went to their Headquarter's. they had us fill out an application and then they brought us into a room. there were probably like forty of us. they collected all the applications and our resumes and basically started. i was the first one they called on. they basically like that i was opened on the weekends (this is something they really want!) and they asked me "what i think good customer service is?" and "what is my biggest strength?" i smiled alot and gave them an answer. after the interview, they said they'd call us back or email us in a week. i received a phone call offering me the job, a week later, and accepted it.

    Group Interview....After hearing the same answer about 20 times makes me wonder how they are really judging these interviews. Literally the same answers over and over and over and then some more. The interview just saying "Good answer" it really was hilarious.
