Past tense and present tense


How can I correctly use this sentence? I asked the lady who worked at Zara to help me or I asked the lady who work at Zara to help me? I've seen both of this used and wondering what's the difference since the lady at zara was working and nothing has changed. Please explain :)

Worked is correct if the lady worked there in past not not.

Works is correct if the lady still works there.
