    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Zara.

    Interview

    I was hired at an "open house", which is a quick screening process. The interview process took about 15-20 mins. Very informal and straight to the point. The regional manager or hiring manger tells a bit about the company and few expectations, followed by a few quick questions about your ability to multi-task, and communication.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Skokie, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Zara (Skokie, IL).

    Interview

    Took about 10 mins. The lady that interviewed me made me feel nervous. I showed up 15 minutes late and she got on me for that. Asked if I was available for 5am shift. Said no because I didn't have a car. I was nervous the while interview so it was a little hard for me. If anything be prepared with your answers and don't take long to answer. She said they were doing other interviews and she will give me a call back.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zara (Costa Mesa, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    They emailed me directly on indeed regarding the position. But when I got there they ambushed me with other positions they wanted to fill, and told me they filled the one I applied for. I do a lot of research on brands before I interview with them, and I take note on how I am treated during the interview process. It was one of the worst interviews I have been on. She forgot my name, didn't read my resume, and made little to know effort to smile or be friendly. I have worked for Hautelook, BCBG, and Vince. to name a few. I loved Zara because the clothes I actually identify with.

    For me I love the clothes but had a terrible company experience. I have never walked out of an interview. I'm sure not every experience is like this, but I wanted to share mine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zara (Bloomington, MN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer seemed a bit inexperienced. They made me fill out another application in store after I already applied and was invited for an interview. The whole ordeal seemed rushed and disorganized.
