Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zara (Tysons, VA (US)) in February 2016.

Interview

I applied in person. I had to fill out a quick form prior to the interview. The interview was very short, 5 mins max. The manager mostly wanted to know about my availability because it is such a busy store. There were other candidates coming in and leaving.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zara (New York, NY (US)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Initially I had to face two long phone interviews, where I was asked the classic questions like "Tell me about yourself." and "What are the reasons you applied to this job position.", or "Tell me about your previous experiences". The main issue here was to keep my nerves and concentrate on the voice tone of the interviewer. Also trying to push on follow-up answers can help me drag the conversation towards where I wanted.
    Finally the application process brought me to endure a 1:1 interview with an very easy-going HR member who managed to give me enough opportunities to express. Nothing extremely difficult, but i would suggest to dress smart and not necessarily with stuff from Zara. Come charged up and confident and you will not have any problem.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zara (Melbourne (Australia)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    I was invited for a group interview at a hotel conference room. I might be in the first group (25 people) cause when we finished and went outside there was another group waiting to enter. Our interviewer were the HR person which was super nice and friendly, the other was the assistant store manager of a Zara’s store. We sat in circle and asked to introduce the person next to us after 4 minutes of knowing each other. Then watched a slideshow introducing the Inditex. At last they let us draw cards and answer them without seeing the question when it’s your turn.
    The process was pretty relaxing. But I still don’t get what’s their standard of choosing people:/ Just do you, be proactive answer the questions and smile A LOT.
    Hope this help xoxo

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zara (Sydney (Australia)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    It was a 1 hour group interview. I was in a group of 9.

    1. A brief presentation on Zara and what Inditex actually does as a company.
    2. Each person had to choose a photo and introduce themselves and their work ethics based on the photo they picked.
    3. We had to get into groups of 3 and do a mini role play situation acting out what we would do in the face of a real life retail problem e.g my group's one was
    "how would you deal with a customer who is unhappy with an item that was incorrectly priced?'
    4. Lastly, each person reads and answer different unseen questions.

    Great and fun interview overall with super nice people around. The talent manager was awesome very friendly and made the atmosphere a lot less tense.
