    Interview

    I initially called the store just to see if they were hiring. Im a student and was in the market for a part time job. Whomever picked up said yes and that I must pick up the application instore. Went in on a Thursday filled out the application. Personally handed it to the manager. They looked over it at that moment and I was asked to come in the following Monday. Went in on a Monday for the interview. I was taken to the stock room and was interviewed by two managers. One was observing more than anything. Later on that same day was called about the job offer.

    Interview

    Typical Open House jargon. Fill out paper work. Talk the manager. Then once you get the job offer and fill out the paperwork it takes a full week for corporate to send that particular store your employee number. Once you have your number, then you are able to start actual work there

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zara.

    Interview

    This was a very quick interview process. The three managers came out to conduct a group introduction. After they made their introduction, they separated applicants and interviewed them 1:1 privately. They seemed to have been looking for generic responses to the questions asked.

    Interview

    Attended Zaras Hiring event they make you look around the store while you wait for others to arrive i will say i was the first one there i arrived 30mins early then the actual hiring event started so i can't say if it was group interview but do except it if there's a crowd waiting, i was seen first the manager made me complete a in store application 3 pages just to let you know after i completed it we had a 1 on 1 interview very quick she asked the same questions we've heard so much but with one thing different do you love fashion? I'm going to say if you do not have the ''LOOK'' and or into fashion and you do not come fashionable you will be not be called i came in professional interview clothes ...also if your availability doesn't match their criteria which is afternoons and mainly evening i wouldn't get my hopes up either... overall be ready! dress to impress and i mean it! bring your resume and good luck!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zara (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It wasn't bad. The manager takes you outside of the store and asks you pretty basic retail oriented questions. As long as you've done some initial review of the brand or are familiar enough with clothing retail, you'll be fine. I highly recommend doing a cursory glance at both the Zara and Inditex websites. You don't have to memorize anything, but the manager may ask you how you think Zara's fashion would fit into your personal style.
