    • "Sales assistant"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Sales Associate 

        I worked at Zara part-time

        Pros

        Reasonable pay 25% off inditex stores (which basically means 25% off ZARA, BERSHKA, PULL & BEAR, STRADIVARIUS, OYSHO & MASSIMO DUTI) GOOD commission- if the store earns more than the sales target (this needs to happen on a regular basis if you want a good commission at the end of the month)

        Cons

        Can be very physically demanding especially on busy days and during sales periods. Do not recommend if you have pack pains as you will be doing a lot of folding and bending (if you are a sales assistant).

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

        Pros

        Fun, fast paced environment. You get to meet a lot of new people from different countries. Afternoon shifts allow for sleeping in in the morning.

        Cons

        Can be very stressful at times. Now with the new pay scheme (no commission) it's not worth it working during sales periods. The human aspect has been completely lost due to the size of the company. 6h shifts are fine, but 8h shifts are really really tiring. You only get 4 sick days per year, and even those are not paid when you have been working there for less than 6 months.

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

        Pros

        - always busy - easy to build a rapport with co-workers - 25% staff discount for all inditex brands - £50 Christmas voucher for inditex brands (can be used with staff discount) - high commissions = more money - you can work your way up if you are passionate about retail - very systematic system

        Cons

        - Work life is heavily influenced by what kind of people your managers are. If you're lucky you'll have great managers who are considerate and thoughtful. If you're not then you'll be dealing with favouritism, racism, and unfair dismissals. :-( - retail is stressful and hard-work always, especially for a fast fashion company like Zara. - high turnover rate.

        Advice to Management

        favouritism doesn't lead to a happy team.
