I have been working at Zara full-time (More than 5 years)
In time, as you get to know and work with people, they become family. You have the annoying cousin, needy younger sister, detailed aunt, forgetful uncle, fun dad, naggy mom, you get the picture. The company training program is fantastic, but the actual training never happens according to plan--and sometimes that's for the best, because you get to see the real situations a manager is in every day. Once you're FT, benefits are great and I enjoy my month of paid vacation/year.
Unfortunately, unless you're in a very select group of friends within the company, it's hard to get to the top. You have to get through years of friendship or someone quitting to go up the ladder. If they don't like you, you can be the best you can be, it's not happening... they'll blame it on "people skills" or "the team is not on your side" when in reality, they're not in the store 24/7, and they don't see how your customers love you so much they bring you gifts. It's a shame they're losing people who can do the job and... know how to spell.
Advice to Management
Invest in people who have worked with the company. It has been proven time and time again that hiring from outside the company does nothing to boost up the sales or expectations. They quit fast, because their previous job was at Armani (greeting)
