    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Torrance, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Zara (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was held in the food court at the mall. It was pleasant enough, but awkward because you were watched by everyone else who was applying. The interviewer was very nice and made the interview less stressful. I received a call and was offered the job later that same day. The whole experience was extremely quick.

    Sales Associate/Cashier/Stock Replenishment Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zara (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about six people. Recruiter claimed that the interview process was meant to get to know us personally; in actuality, everyone gave a one line introduction of their past relevant experience and for the rest of the time we listened to her talk about Zara. The interview itself was pretty smooth, but the followup process has been a nightmare. This is my third time being offered a position by Zara, and this is also the third time that they have failed to actually make that happen by following up with me, regardless of how many times I've reached out. I've been dragged along by this company for months and I'm tired of them; their practices are juvenile. How can they expect to grow when treating their prospective employees like this?

    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.

    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!

    Stock Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Zara (Costa Mesa, CA).

    Interview

    Zara was having a job fair and I have always wanted to work there, so I decided to go ahead. I brought in my resume and filled out an application. I was kind of intimidated at first because I didn't have much retail experience compared to another girl I was talking to that was applying for sales, but I continued to be myself (all bubbly). The interview was one on one and was easy to be honest. My interviewer was cool and explained what the job responsibilities were. The interview was about 10 minutes long. Four days later, I got a call saying they wanted to offer me a position and if I could come in the next day to fill out the paperwork.
