    I have been working at Zara

    Pros

    Pay was decent for me at the time. Averaged about 30 hours a week. Management was positive, for the most part. They were flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    The work was mundane. Some days the shipments were overwhelming. Also, you were on your feet for the entire workday.

    Pros

    Being social and interactive to all different types of people from across the world that admire one brand

    Cons

    Not being able to understand all languages from all customers because the Zara brand is international and tourist would visit the location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a casualZara day where employees can show off their personal styles in Zara clothing while working.

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

    Pros

    + Lots of attractive customers to converse with and look at.
    + Interesting fashion styles to be inspired by.

    Cons

    - Repetitive and mindless work (my brain felt like it was literally melting after a few weeks of working there).
    - Odd managerial structure that makes it difficult to figure out who to report to, who is in charge, who creates the schedule, etc.
    - In-fighting between managers/co-workers is obvious and makes it really difficult to stay neutral or do legitimate work.
    - Barely above minimum wages and the employee discount doesn't kick in until 3+ months of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management really needs some basic training on customer service, employee management, motivational skills and just overall how to treat people. Some assistant managers really thought they were above others because of their title. Get over yourself.
