    I worked at Zara full-time (more than an 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 worked at Zara full-time

    Pros

    You meet a lot of nice customers from all over the world who come in with a desire to look fashion forward but on a budget. If you like poeple, and have no plroblem multi tasking, this is the place for you.. But you must be ready to work, especially during holidays.. Oh and for a retail store, the pay is great, and the benefits are amazing!!

    Cons

    Lack of communication with managers. Difficult to get promotions. Not much overtime offered. Employee discount is very low, only 15%. The uniform is a pain, only managers et to wear their own Zara clothing...
