    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 dayinterviewed 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.

    Typical questions asked by management. If you are applyng at a retail store, you should at least look at the trends of the store before coming in. We have tons of people come in looking a mess then looking for a job.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zara in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The store hadn't opened yet so they were hiring as many people as possible. Interview was at a fancy hotel. Went inside hotel conference room to pick up application and fill outside. Then got called back in to interview. Simple easy questions like "how would you handle so and so" and "tell me about yourself"

    What they look for is fashion sense. They like clean cut and groomed. Look like a model and you get hired. speaking spanish is a plus too.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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

    Very easy interview process. The HR director meets with you just to see if you are clean looking and asks you simple questions about customer service and sales experience. Call back is within a couple days.

    HR tells you over the telephone how much their offer is. I'm not sure if it is negotiable.

    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.

    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.
