    I have been working at Zara part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Managers helpful in ensuring you are part of the team. Get a 25% for all Inditex brands. Many managers (80%) are hired internally so there are lots of opportunities for progression

    Cons

    As Zara is a Spanish company, many of the Managers speak Spanish to each other which is unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    If you are working in England you should speak English at work
