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

    Pros

    The energy is high and there is always something to do. The company as a whole really does care about its employees and the benefits are fantastic. It's not hard to move up within the company. Their employees are first priority when it comes to promotions.

    Cons

    I've supported almost every store in the south west area and out of the 5 stores I've been to and almost 3 years of working there, I've only had 2 good managers.

    Advice to Management

    Be ready for the role you're about to take on. This job isn't easy. No matter where you are and how big of a team you have, you need to be hands-on. Care about your team, and show them that you're worth taking orders from.

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

    Pros

    Very understanding department manager. Store managers can be a bit overbearing. Decent hours. Don't get commission but if the store surpasses sales they excess is distributed among the store. Overall I really enjoyed my time at this company.

    Cons

    You have to watch out for shoplifters. The area I worked had abundance of Zara and Inditex affiliate stores around so sometimes we didn't make as much in sales.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for th management at other locations because I have heard several horror stories from other Zara employees but my managers were absolutely amazing.
