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

    Pros

    Learning new customer service skills and how to be multitask during differentes things in a short time with a fast paced environment. If you work hard and show your interest and value in everyday life, they value it and there are real opportunities for job promotion in a short time.

    Cons

    Sometime its could be very stressful on sales season, unstable work schedules and managers who treat you badly.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Zara part-time for less 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.
