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

    Pros

    Learning about managment, time mgt, staff mgt as per international standard

    Cons

    Politics and HR specially Gunjan sardana she just speak without using her mind ( always demotivate the staff ) and senior mgt team are dumb. Not good in taking decision. No reatil KPI LEARNING.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up, keep your attitude aside and start giving respect to lower mgt to get your work done on time. Fair treatment is not there, as we use to discuss in zara. Good for customers but not for staff as attrition rate is pretty high try to work on it.

    I have been working at Zara part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The products in the store are great, with the exception of a few that have bad zippers or stitching. The employees are nice and work together. Growth within the company is possible and encouraged.

    Cons

    The employee discount could be raised, management is somewhat uptight, the uniform, specifically the shoes are terrible! Let me expand, the shoes cause so much pain when walking and when I've talked to managers about it, they say it's what has to be worn. The shoes don't allow me to be as productive, and the uniform weighs me down when having to move quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage store managers to practice fun activities for employee morale, take suggestions seriously.

    I have been working at Zara part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Zara really knows how to instill a sense of perfection in its employees. Not many other companies, especially in retail, make sure that everything is operating at its best. The work load is high, and a lot of times it does get incredibly stressful, but the employees are amazing, and everyone has a good time working.

    Cons

    The management does not bend when it comes to sick days, or someone covering your shift. If there is any emergency, you will most likely get penalized for missing work. The interview is really thorough - they want to make sure they are hiring the most motivated individuals possible.
