    I worked at Zara full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fairly high pay for a retail job Employee discounts

    Cons

    Lots of drama between sales staff and also with the managers, creating a hostile working environment Inept store management displayed poor leadership, disorganized and slow in implementing changes from head office. Poor relationship management as well - fought and in a fit of rage, fired a guy during store opening hours, which could have been better handled
