    I worked at Zara part-time

    Pros

    Fast paced and there is almost always something to do. Work is pretty repetitive and remains the same.

    Cons

    The quality expected is high and at the busiest times can be a very stressful environment. High pressure to sell a lot (but that's the name of the game). Understaffed at times.

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

    Pros

    The job is like any other retail job, but it seems easy to me. You will be multitasking a lot so if you like that, then it will be fun. The commission is group based so there isn't that much pressure to sell.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication in management. Sometimes, you are scheduled for a lot of hours or you may have to close one night and open the next morning. They also update the schedules a lot and make it your responsibility to check it.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to communicate and don't always call employees in for work constantly. Also, learn how to make an effective schedule and stop changing it every week.
