I worked at Zara part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent product, so you can be proud to say you work for Zara. Very healthy competition to reach sales goals and a lot of opportunity to grow but you have to be the best and always go the extra mile

Cons

Terrible employee discount, I suggest that the company raise the discount for employees since we have such a hard time resisting buying something everyday.

    Pros

    Good pay, coworkers are entertaining since we all hate the general manager, some of the managers let us listen to music during closing ( if general manager isn’t there)Good pay, coworkers are entertaining since we all hate the general manager, some of the managers let us listen to music during closing ( if general manager isn’t there)

    Cons

    Management doesn't know how to manage the schedule, General Manager drags on closing by bringing up new clothing at the last minute, there's no help from management when floor is busy, constantly being stopped to do other projects

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out, we're not robots. Lead by example

    Pros

    opportunities for growth, get to meet great people on your team, great learning experience of the "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"

    Cons

    This company has a great idea that has all but disappeared through the terrible management practices of Upper Management employees. A lot of the corporate employees are very unprofessional: they give you a time when they will do something for you, don't do it, and don't even follow up. The philosophy is: if you need something, you need to keep calling, ten times, to ten different people if you have to. They do not have established training guidelines/programs for any position, and yet they have tremendous expectations. The feedback from corporate is frequently not constructive, they do not offer solutions to any problems. They do not give you sufficient resources.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals, and give sufficient resources. Make the employees feel appreciated.
