It is the company in Dubai where i grow up, that enhance my skills especially in customer service, and to maintain tidy and presentable display of the items. the tradition and culture of the busiest retail shoppe which makes me a wide challenge to facilitate the multi-tasking responsibility with a smile. Manager's are well attentive and approachable – more... team leader that gives advise for more promotions to achieve more of our goals. we are a team together with my colleagues that helping each other to maintain the excellent communication to hear all the needs with an open hand to the people. we are practiced and used to have a large quantity ratio to handle customer and the hardest part of the job is during the Sale period. my emphasis is the Passion and integrity to listen and give what they need and the patience. it's nice to experience this job, that so many faces, so many races different voice with their different choices. – less

A friendly challenging working environment
Responsible Cashier (Former Employee), London, ENGOctober 21, 2013
Pros: travel paid
Cons: some nights i would not leave the store until early hours
Zara is friendly working environment that enjoy pushing there staff to better there selves. When I started in Zara Derby they trained me extremly well. i was trained in merchandising, stock control, transfers in and out of store and also on how to to operate the cash desk. After nearly a year in the Derby store i took it upon myself to move to the new – more... store Zara Stratford London, here i helped train all the new staff and act as a mentor for them. I then move to the cash desk where i became supervisor which involved me organising the cash desk team which could consist of up to 24 cashiers at any one time. My responsibilities consisted of organising the team productively weather it’s covering breaks in all departments, finding time to complete store chores or organising the team to stay on which till. I am responsible for the daily plans, opening and closing the store, stationary orders, training and Loomis. I have also taken part on the management training programme which aided me in conducting one to ones and being note taker in the investigation and disciplinary hearings. The staff were extremely friendly and everyone worked well in a team. On a whole my time in Zara was an enjoyable one and if i never moved back home from London i would of happily continued working there. – less

Busy and Challenging
Visual Merchandiser / Co-ordinator (Former Employee), TallinnOctober 15, 2013
Pros: staff discount
Cons: stressful atmosphere
My day started at the office with reading and replying to any administrative emails about the stock, delivery and merchandising. Then that was followed by calculating, comparing and analysing the sales. After analysing the sales, I merchandised the shopfloor according to the results. Also each morning, I worked with the TGT program for any information – more... that was put up by the head office and made sure the store's merchandise standards were being met. Once a week, I also money mapped the whole shopfloor. Worked towards acheiving the targets set by the head office for the store.
On the days of delivery, I briefed the team on the arriving items and suggested on how to wear/accessorise certain items. Talked about the best and the less selling items, and made sure the team was aware of the trends. During the Sale period , I rearranged the whole shopfloor by drawing down the map of the store, and worked closely with the head of the merchandising office to achieve the shopfloor that meets Zara's standards.
Management was supportive and very helpful. I had many responsibilities, and the main thing I learned was how to multitask and work efficiently under pressure. Also to trust my intuition but discuss my ideas to wide range of people for the best results.
The hardest part of the job was definitely putting the collections together, when there were only few pieces from the full range and had to be very creative in order to sell certain items.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the creative part. I really loved working with different collections, arranging them and seeing the sales targets being met. – less
