    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    The pay at Zara is better than a lot of other retail stores and there is a lot of room for growth within the company.

    Cons

    A lot of work is thrown at one employee, and if you're working as a cashier in Men's department your job involves many more responsibilities than your average cashier.

    Advice to Management

    Plenty of help is needed and sometimes the amount of associates is unreasonable.the company should reconsider promoting even if you are not full time.

    Pros

    You will have good opportunities to grow within the company. Work insurance is quite nice. The company has a very good teamwork system. It's very fast pace and time flies. Company that is not afraid for changes to keep on developing.

    Cons

    It could be overwhelming for some people. It's definitely not for everyone. We are not paid enough compared to the amount of work that are given.
