Amazing place to work
Educator (Current Employee), n/aMay 28, 2014
Pros: free fitness classes, great people, amazing corporate culture
Cons: a lot of outside involvement required, often hire based on personality vs. qualifications
Lululemon cares about you as a person, not just as an employee within a corporate structure. The people I work with are some of the coolest people I know and we do things together outside of the workplace frequently.

A typical day in the store consists of helping guests in the store and managing your assigned area of the store map. Advanced knowledge – more... of all the product in the store is required at all times.

Group commission is added at the end of every period (month) and is usually a sizeable chunk of cash. Employee discounts are also very generous. Lulu also pays for employees to work out at local fitness studios, which is a huge plus. – less

Fun. Great business skills gained.
Educator (Former Employee), Dedham, MAApril 2, 2014
Pros: 1/2 hr breaks and a nice discount
Cons: gaining benifits is difficult
A typical day at work is being checked in by a leader, work side by side with the public, give and receive feedback, and have fun.
co-workers usually have similar interests and are always trying to better themselves.
Hardest part of the job was to learn all the product and deliver it in a way that is fun and inviting.

Fun, Active; Collaborative- one of the best jobs I've ever had
Seasonal Full-time Educator (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: everything; free fitness classes, free food; able to give guests free classes; empowering environment!
Cons: it is a retail job- could be "boring" but staff and guests make up for that!
Lululemon is one of the best companies I've ever worked for. So inclusive and so honest with the staff and the clients. Every staff member is empowered to take a part of the company. I would work here again in a second!

Free fitness classes. Community driven. Free goal coaching and encourage you to have a work/life balance. Management feels more like – more... friends than bosses- but friends that hold you accountable. I felt like I was really a part of this entire company though I only worked seasonally. – less

An all around beneficial experience
Educator (Former Employee), Cranston, RIJanuary 21, 2014
A few things that drew me to this company were their standards, quality and morals. They genuinely care about their product, the community and their employees. I love most types of physical fitness, and will pretty much try anything once. They encourage that and I got to be surrounded by like-minded people on a daily basis, which was nice. I do, however, – more... enjoy being challenged and wish I had been more challenged in this position. Overall though, it was a great experience and there were definitely some lessons learned, as there usually are. – less

Relaxed, productive working environment
Educator (Current Employee), Dallas GalleriaJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: athletic environment, fitness promoted, organized chaos, freedom to be yourself
Cons: part-time, limited hours, distance
Work was very relaxed, one of the better jobs that I have worked simply because there was no certain way to do thing, only guidelines. I learned numerous attributes to different materials in the yoga realm.

An amazing experience
Educator (Former Employee), Santa Barbara, CASeptember 10, 2013
Pros: free workouts, culture, value system, community, discounts
lululemon offered me nothing but two years of fun, learning, and positive values. The company enabled me to conquer some of my biggest goals, even though they required me to quit my job (traveling). I worked at two different locations and had three different managers and loved every second of the year and eight months that I spent working there. I learned – more... how to connect with people and with the community, there was rarely a bad day. – less

Overall amazing experience with natural ebbs and flows
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Burlingame, CASeptember 3, 2013
Pros: free workout classes
Cons: schedule- nights and weekends
There is the retail aspect of working for the company where you are cleaning the store and folding yoga pants. However, lululemon athletica offers much more to both their guests as well as their employees. The company values your personal well being and balance and pushes you toward your goals and living your best life. The hardest part of my job was – more... managing requests from both upper management and my educator team and learning how to satisfy all. I learned so much from the company about being an entrepreneur and evaluating the needs of the business. – less

Great place to grow as an individual
EDUCATOR & COMMUNITY LIASON (Former Employee), La Jolla, CaliforniaJuly 24, 2013
Pros: fun, energetic, great culture
Cons: too much drama, too many politics, unrealistic expectations
This job was a great place to learn more about yourself and become the person you want to be. You learn how to give and accept feedback whether you like it or not.It is a hard place to move up in. Although the company has seen a lot of growth, it takes time and patience to move up, as well as politics and befriending the right people at the right time. – more... Lululemon is a stepping stone for most employees. It is a fun job: to be silly and wear stretchy pants everyday. – less

young, fun, healthy environment; great place to work for personal growth
Educator (Former Employee), Paramus, NJJuly 19, 2013
Pros: personal goal coaching, health-focused, values, training, opportunities for advancement, dental & medical benefits for full-time employees, open communication, fun everyday!
Cons: working with difficult guests, everchanging retail environment, weekend and holiday availability is a must
An amazing company to work for. It may be a retail company in nature, but it is not your typical retail job! It's fun, and if you believe in the culture, you will grow as an individual and an entrepreneur. Personal goal setting is built into the training! Within months, you will become a goal-setting/goal-achieving machine. If growth within the company – more... is a goal of yours, you can easily make that happen. Communication between team members and management is the best, most open you will ever find. Management and corporate are super transparent in their decisions and actions. Health is a part of the culture. You will be in the healthiest, most fit shape of your life because they sponsor you to explore the local fitness communities! They also send their employees to Landmark Education after they've worked 8 months with the company. Lululemon is truly innovative in their philosophies and business practices. Highly recommend working here during any stage of your life. – less

Great company to work for that focuses on Leadership & People Development
Sales Floor Manager (Current Employee), CaliforniaApril 3, 2013
Lululemon is a great company to work for and they offer really good benefits. All of the marketing is grassroots and is primarily done at the store level. Being into yoga and run will connect your passion with your work.

Its a big small company that wants it people to be intiviate at all levels. Taking yoga and other fitness classes in the commnity – more... is part of your job. Its ever changing and everyday presents something new and challeging. Great job if your in school or if you want to make a career in retail. – less

Key Leader/Educator (Former Employee), Burlingame, CAFebruary 28, 2013
Pros: discounts on clothes, access to gyms and health clubs everywhere
Cons: occasional inability to receive feedback
I opened and closed the store by opening cash registers and delegating opening duties to staff. I scheduled breaks and merchandise restocks throughout the day, and monitored the quality of performance of staff in their given sections via feedback. Through my time with lululemon, I gained a strong understanding in sales, managerial duties, administrative – more... duties, strategic visual merchandising, human resources, and the importance of product and business knowledge. My co-workers were wonderful to work with and also had amazing work ethic. They constantly gave and received feedback and were always willing to grow and develop with the company and with each other. The most challenging and enjoyable part of working for lululemon was the variety of 80-20 projects that were dispersed to each individual in the store. These included projects entailing responsibilities that were new to me in areas I was not experienced in. It was both challenging and rewarding to be able to accomplish what was given to me and what I took on. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my fellow staff, along with the ability to create an outstanding experience with guests that came into the store. – less

Great Atmosphere for Growth and Development
Educator and Sales Associate (Current Employee), Auckland, NZFebruary 17, 2013
Pros: amazing team at each store and always pushed to grow
Cons: the pressure to never stop, from a yoga class, to social media, we must always be switched 'on.'
A day with lululemon starts when you wake up. a major part of our position is being an active part of the company's grassroots marketing. Because of this much of our job happens off the sales floor and in yoga studios, gyms and coffee shops in our community. On the floor we aspire to educate our guest not only on the gear e have available in our stores – more... but also to help guide them through their own adventures. – less
