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

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

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.
