    I have been working at Zara part-time

    Pros

    - Decent pay with commission
    - Paid holidays and sick days
    - Great hours
    - Sale is intense. But new collection is much easier to close and maintain.

    Cons

    - Sale season gets very hectic and overwhelming.
    - Closing sections with manager pressure and constant supervision.
    - No training or orientation when I was hired. I was still expected to work fast then.

    Advice to Management

    To Zara, having an end of year and summer clearance sale isn't cool. In all if it wasn't for the long lasting sales, working at Zara would be more of a pleasure than a headache.

    I have been working at Zara full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best pay in low-mid end retail, good hours depending on what store you end up working at, 25% discount card.

    Cons

    Some managers are not trained properly in how to handle its employees, depending on where you end up working it can severely effect the quality of your work life. Lots of good hard working employees in there store that do not get promoted after working for the company for years, while others are offered positions withing months of there hire date.

    Advice to Management

    Look to seeing how good of a leader they are personally and learn more about what it takes to motivate employees properly.
