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

Pros

Excellent product, so you can be proud to say you work for Zara. Very healthy competition to reach sales goals and a lot of opportunity to grow but you have to be the best and always go the extra mile

Cons

Terrible employee discount, I suggest that the company raise the discount for employees since we have such a hard time resisting buying something everyday.

    I worked at Zara full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many locations and easy to transfer
    Good travel stipends/paid meals
    Gain experience as a buyer for your department

    Cons

    Poor employee discount
    Need to fit their mold (no visible tattoos)
    Managers have no say in merchandising/display of their departments/store
    Need to be fluent in Spanish if you ever really want to grow with the company
    Upper Management treated associates with little respect

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone that works for you respectfully, not just us managers and be more open to suggestions having to do with creative endeavors from managers or associates because they may be great ideas. Not all of them have to come directly from the visual team in Spain. Also, be more inclusive of the people who may not understand/speak Spanish when discussing important issues (and don't gossip in Spanish either). This is coming from someone who understands and speaks Spanish too.
