In And Out Job..

Cashier (Former Employee)
Croydon, England (UK)

I worked at Zara part-time for more than a year

ProsDiscount
Uniform
Shifts
Salary (Good For Students)

The job is good for status and salary.

ConsIncompetent and rude Managers.

- With this job. Its fast paced in the sense of "In with the new, out with the old"
COVER YOUR BACK. They will be quick to get you out rather than help you.

Do your job - Try and not make mistakes - Small talk here and there - Home.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more one to one training to your cashiers - ONE day training isn't enough.
Of course the cashiers will make mistakes - GIVE THEM A CHANCE.
Managers need to be more polite to their staff - They need to remember their pay check and they're working just like the rest of us.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
