Working in Spain
Many foreigners still fantasize about Spanish siestas. That might be the case on weekends or holidays and for some industries like retail and hospitality. However, most employees in multinational corporations work 40 hours/week with a 1- or 2-hour lunch break/day. Overtime is paid with a premium or compensated with extra days off.
Work culture in Spain follows the Western European model, with a focus on results and a splash of fun too! The office atmosphere is vibrant, multicultural, dynamic and very engaging.
