Educator (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 10, 2018
But once you really understand the system it's a manipulation game. They require you to put in 120% but pay you at minimum wage. Which wasn't so bad with the *old* bonus structure. Now bonuses are capped and you have to work 10x harder to meet those sales goals. The company presents it's self as being about people and connection but it's really just about their bottom line. They have left their dedicated and hard-working employees in the dust. Don't be fooled people. When you enter a store and they're super friendly and approachable, it's a sales tactic and the employees are the very well trained.
Great Company Culture - Demands Improvement and Growth
Store Inventory Manager (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – February 22, 2018
I loved my time spent with lululemon athletica. I have never been a part of a company that offered so much development and education - with the specific role, but also with interpersonal relations, personal growth, accountability, discipline, time management, people management...the list goes on. If you are a smart person who has self-awareness and wants to develop in a plethora of ways, this is an incredible company to work for. And no, you don't have to be a yoga addict. I only left because of being passed up on for a promotion that I and my team felt I had earned - and because my superiors weren't able to give me a clear/definitive answer as to why I was not chosen.
Amazing Culture/Development, Compensation for Working Out, Good Discounts
Lulu was my favorite company to work for, the only downfall was how seriously they took the culture, so many times it would be described as "cult-y". I loved going to work everyday, they environment was great, but if you didn't live and breathe the culture or show advancement in living it, most likely you would be fired.

Lululemon at first seems like a great place to work and it is if you fit into the typical Lululemon mold they are looking for. However, if you aren't, management will look past you and not value you because you do not do things exactly how they see is best. It is limited and not a place that you can thrive because they baby and restrict you very much despite their claims they believe in building and developing their employees.
FULL-TIME EDUCATOR (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 7, 2018
Lululemon is an amazing company that focuses on the growth of it's employees. As an educator, your job is to provide each guest with the best experience as possible through education and authentic connection. Working for the company helps in personal growth: in goal setting, being able to interact with people of all backgrounds, and taking pride in hard work. Management seeks to imbed an entrepreneurial spirit in all educators and try to provide a workplace that is fun and rewarding. The hardest part of the job is having to keep a positive attitude when dealing with disgruntled customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is the amazing people you get to work alongside. Lifelong friendships are built in this company,
The culture is incredible. Opportunities for advancement. Average pay. Quick culture and must be able to adapt to change. Lots of opportunity for self development and vision & goal setting. You have to be willing to move for job advancement. Scheduling is based on the needs of business and makes work/life balance difficult.

Many aspects are just like other retail jobs, but the culture sets a tone that does care about its people and leaves employees power to make customers happy. Each store operates to accommodate the local community which makes a store become a home away from home. Benefits to work out is the best benefit ever and also helps build a bond among coworkers.
Educator (Current Employee) – Freehold, NJ – January 15, 2018
It is amazing to be surrounded by like-minded people and connect with your community.

My coworkers are incredible, hard-working, passionate, wonderful group to work with.
Being surrounded by amazing people with similar interests
Fun and challenging place to work with great benefits and culture
Key Leader (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – January 12, 2018
I learned so much at this job - high quality customer service, how to work with a team, how to manage a team, having fun with like-minded, outgoing, healthy people. The people development was outstanding and the team truly cared about each other. Long hours on your feet and talking with people non-stop. High expectations for performance. Short breaks. Great job for extroverts. The team was so close that there was some drama. Higher turnover rate than normal workplaces since it is retail.
Great product discounts, free workouts, teambuilding, personal development, goal and vision coaching, fun
short breaks, non-stop talking with tons of guests, high expectations, some drama
