    I have been working at Zara full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you work hard, and have the right management team it's really easy to move up in the company. Pretty decent pay for retail, but the real pro of working are the people you work with.

    Cons

    Very little work/life balance. Corporate management has horrible communication, HR will tell you to do one thing while the commercial department says do something else which leaves the in store management very frustrated which can lead to a tense work environment for the rest of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better communication between the corporate staff, before they try to implement changes in the store.

    Pros

    Good pay. $12/hr + commission

    Cons

    There is a bad management with the managers and they are somewhat rude. It's really not the best job to work there, you get bored easily.

    Advice to Management

    They should help out instead if chatting

    Pros

    room to move up in company

    Cons

    only 15% discount, which i never received. everyone is very judgmental, i was there for 6 months and everyone still treated me like the new girl. if you are younger than everyone else, no one will take you seriously no matter how hard you work. you get the rudest customers because it is more high end. no mercy to the sales associates.

    Pros

    Co-workers were great, HR was super sweet and personable, great clothes.

    Cons

    Limited hours, managers display favoritism, discounts were terrible and lack of incentive

    Advice to Management

    Work on not blatantly showing favoritism to certain employees. Also, if you make promises, make sure you can fulfill them.

    Pros

    Always room for advancement; hard work is acknowledged; reputable product; communication is a priority among all, including management; above minimum wage; incentives for staying with the company; 401k; benefits for all levels of associates; system of covering/giving away/switching shifts is a breeze, as is requesting days off

    Cons

    Benefits are menial for non-corporate workers; barely instituted dollar raises; physically laborious; the value of respect and professionalism may sometimes be overlooked while pushing for advancement of associates; tiny employee discount

    Advice to Management

    Company morals are sound, but there needs to be better reinforcement of them. Reimbursements for associates (parking) would be hugely appreciated and would make associates feel appreciated also. Bullying your way to the top seems to be the most effective way to advance, but that could lead to hostile work environments; the loudest or the fastest does not always signify the best leader.
