    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation package. They have some great ideas and you can usually talk to upper management. They really like to promote within, so if they see potential in you, they'll take you far.

    Cons

    Nothing you do is ever good enough. They always want more and they don't give you the right tools to do it.

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

    Pros

    flexible hours for part-time employees. they really took my school schedule seriously and worked around it, totally understanding. discount is great and they give a $5,000 cap per employee for their discount. They also have a lot of internal opportunities to advance in the workplace, and post it in the breakroom where all employees can see it

    Cons

    No cons that i can think of
