Working at Zara was great. I just wish they were more organized and had more hard working employees to run the store. However, I learned a lot from this company and I wish everyone the best!

Learnt organization and customer facing skills
Sales agent and stock manager (Former Employee), Madrid, MDSeptember 9, 2013
I had to stay in the store taking care of the stock and attending the customers in the cashier.

I learnt mostly about organization and customer facing skills.

The hardest part of the job was to manage the stock when the shop was crowded.

The most enjoyable part was every time you deal with a tough customer with success and when the shop was over – more... crowded and you control the situation because you expected and planed it. – less

MERCHANDISER/BUYER (Former Employee), A Coruña, SpainSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: salary, discounts, travels, fashion atmosphere
Cons: long hours, no flexibility, no career inside
all day I checked the daily sales by country, stores, I check differents rankings by product, by family, by colours, by collections, I talked with my team: one sales responsible for each market. twice a week I selected which product I was going to send to each store according to the past sales, especial tastes and fashion trends, important moments in – more... campaign. create specific collection each campaign for each market, select the product, deal with suppliers, quantities by sizes, by stores, prices. control de stock levels daily with the increase or decrease when necessary. prepare the Sale period.
I learned a lot fashion trends, we have to be updated
the two things I really enjoy were to visit the countries twice a year and to create the special collections
the hardest part of the job were to control more than 4000 different references in 65 stores in 8 countries, what I was selling and what I didnt when we had new items in store twice a week – less

The salary is very high, as is the turnover they like to spend time training staff into management very quickly, long hours and no pay no time back.
Deputy Manager (Current Employee), Canterbury, started in BluewaterAugust 22, 2013
Pros: wages and doubling pension, free uniform
Cons: long hours, lack of support
Setting the staff up with jobs, including replenshiment, deliverys, moving product actioning emails. Driving sales through the day and customer service. Training staff through a series of 121's or on the spot training.
Ive worked many years in Zara and gone through various roles everyday i'm learning new procudures as we change all the time, Ive suffered – more... what i consider a lot of inconsistancy during my role as deputy manager in 2 years i have had 4 managers and 4 merchandisers and just as many regional managers so i think my hard work and efforts have gone unnoticed.
My co workers i spend time with to focus on there training and have positive feedback from this area of the job.
What i most enjoy about my job is the customer service.
I'm a hands on manager and although i am capable of rotas and budgets i enjoy driving the team and sales. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Washington, DCAugust 13, 2013
A typical day at work there is always something that needs to be done: Visual merchandising, floor moves, restock, etc. Working there, I have learned how to cope with people from different backgrounds and cultures and their styles of choice. The management is cool. They are open ears for any suggestions and feedback the employees might have. My co-workers – more... are very helpful, fun and energetic. Even the busiest and craziest days are smooth when they are around. The hardest part of my job is when we sell out of our best merchandise because its sometimes hard to find an alternative especially when the customer traveled far for that specific item. The most enjoyable part of my job is finding items for the customers and they fit well; even when its something out of the usual for them. – less
