Cashier (Former Employee), London, ENGFebruary 24, 2014
The day would start with re stocking and getting the store ready, turning on the tills and getting the float. Then during the day we would serve customers, do returns or exchanges and help customers. When the shop closed we then cleaned and counted the money. The management were great and so were my co-workers. I learnt alot of cashier skills. The hardest – more... part were dealing with ques during busy periods and the most enjoyable part was cashing up. – less

very good company to grow in
cashier (Current Employee), Aberdeen, SCTFebruary 23, 2014
Very busy and fast paced work place. I learned a lot about customer service and how to to stationary orders. There are one or two individuals of management that can be quite unprofessional but overall the management are very good. my co-workers are brilliant, i could not ask for a better team to work with! The hardest part of my job is the hours, because – more... they change every week but thats what you have to expect while working in retail! The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the public and creating your own clientele that you look forward to seeing and hearing from :) – less

Fashion forward, very tendy
Cashier (Current Employee), Stamford, CTFebruary 22, 2014
A typical day is about an eight hours shift doing a lot of demanding work. I learned how a business is run especially in retails. Management needs to be changed. Managers are way too young to be in charge, there's favoritism in the work place. Demanding on the co workers some are easy to get along with. Being the only cashier after the other one leaves – more... is the hardest part since you're not able to take a break. – less

Best Paying Retail Store Ever.
Head Cashier (Former Employee), Yorkdale MallFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: amazing pay for a retail store better as you grow within the company, amazing benefits for full time employees, guaranteed hours, always busy
Cons: lack of respect, lack of co-existence, lack of friendliness, not too flexible with availabilities, human resources best interest is for management not the general staff
Opening tills for the correspondent department, supervising other cashiers, typing out and delivering memos to all departments in the store, merchandising, filing paper work, keeping counter clutter free, assorting damages of the store, responsible of sending out to seamstress small fixable damages.

Was able to learn everything regarding the retail – more... industry, minimum banking and depositing information, improving peoples'skills, improved computer skills, inventory input, a fast cashier, fast counting for opening and closing tills.

Co-workers extremely friendly and professional.

Management varies, overall professional, do not talk to employees besides work related demands, did not co-exist with employees would never be seen talking, hanging out or eating lunch with them either, if this was the case they could possibly get in trouble by head office which is a staff that consisted of people from Spain not well informed of Canadian Law and Human Rights.
Encouragement to be tough and hard on staff was acceptable and taught by those in higher positions, wearing make up was promoted for girls, diversity among appearance for men not quite.

The long hours , closing one night and opening the day after was absolutely one of the hardest things to deal with and not being respected by those in higher positions, yelling at staff, speaking in a condescending manner , being judged by overall appearance and never acknowledging the good work and efforts just constantly hearing the bad on a daily basis. A very interesting, surreal and terrible formula to achieve the improvement of skills and motivation of the staff, which caused many people to walk out.

Learning about the latest runway trends and working around such beautiful pieces and clothes was a nice experience if you enjoy that field of customer service, great Christmas parties. – less

ladieswear cashier (Former Employee), Leicester, ENGFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: discount
Cons: long hours
My time at zara was very benefical to me as it was my first paid job. Working as a cashier was very tough because you had to work in a busy environment but also to be accurate with handling handling cash and dealing with discrepancies. i would say overall it has giving me an insight to what working in a fashion retailer has to offer. The most enjoyable – more... part about working in zara was working face to face with customers and making them leave happy but also because we worked as a team. – less

Casual Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Sydney, NSWJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: good uniform
Cons: long hours
A typical day consisted of attending and assisting customers on the floor, replenishment before the store opened and maintenance throughout the day. I have learned how to organise the stockroom, replenishment and also how to work productively and keep up in a very busy workplace. The management was very sweet and constantly gave feedback, which allowed – more... me to improve. I got along with every co-worker and friendly to work with. The hardest part was the long 9 hour shifts but the most enjoyable was communicating and consulting customers and also co-workers. – less

Pros: job unifrom
Cons: bad managers
A typical day at zara was like any other retail store but you have to deal with the snobby managers because of course they have their favorites and if you are not one you pretty much have to deal with their attitude and disrespect.

Shop assistant (Former Employee), Barcelona, CTJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: contact with fashion
Cons: closing time of the shop
I started to work at 4 pm until 11 pm, so there were a lot of hours but the job was so gratifying. I worked as a shop assistant and also in the store, so I learnt a lot of thing about how to work in difference parts os a shop.

I loved advising customers.
