    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at lululemon in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Lululemon sent me an email on Thursday to come in for a group interview the following Tuesday. It started at 7:30am. The assistant manager and 2 key leaders led the interview. They took turns asking questions. Questions included "What is different about working for Lululemon?", "If you could go on a trip with anybody to anywhere with who and where would you go?", "What's a time you made a mistake at a job and how did you fix it?". I was contacted a week later for a phone interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at lululemon.

    Interview Details

    3 part interview. I applied online. Went in for a group interview. It was very casual - we were asked to wear comfortable clothes. Make sure to wear at least 90% lululemon. We sat around on yoga mats - it was really nice. We talked a lot about goals, feedback. Make sure to a clear vision for why lululemon, your goals, a time you had to give feedback and it wasn't positive. On the same day I was called back to schedule a one on one with the store manager. It was a short interview - we sat in chairs but it was still very casual and comfortable. I was asked about goals and feedback again. Also asked how my friends would describe me as a leader in three words. Overall it was a great experience!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at lululemon.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was emailed the next day to come in for a group interview later that week. There were four of us sitting on a couch, and it was very casual. The two employees (one a manager) told us the history of the company and then had an "icebreaker" where they asked each of us to sell them on one piece of clothing we were wearing. I talked about the lulu shirt I had on, but another woman went into great detail about every single item of clothing she was wearing (all lulu) and how she owns so much lulu and had even sold her dad on it. They didn't stop her. They then asked 6 questions, of which they said we didn't need to answer every single one, but there were awkward silences when you didn't. Who would you take on a road trip and where would you go? Why lulu? How have you worked on your self-development recently? What was the best customer service experience you've had lately? They are looking for you to stand out from the crowd (in a positive way)- answer the questions first and be super confident and outgoing. If you made it to the next round, they take you on a "sweat date" and then a 1:1 interview. They did not discuss salary beyond saying there is a store commission on top of base, and they did inform us there were "blackout dates" between Dec-Jan that we could not ask for time off. Also were told we would have to work a certain number of hours to get the employee discount. Lulu recruiting, not the manager of the store, informed me that I did not make it to the next round, which I found very impersonal.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at lululemon in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my application online, I was sent an invitation to come to a group interview. It was pretty informal (we sat on the floor) and they asked typical questions about work history, skills, interests, etc. But there were some unique questions like "What's your favorite way to sweat?" and "When was the last time you laughed at yourself?" Brownie points if you mention the quality of their products when talking about why you want to work there, because that's a real point of pride for them.

    I applied online – interviewed at lululemon.

    Interview Details

    Longest process ever. Applied online and got invited to come in for a group interview. Stupid questions at the group interview and then got asked to come back on for a one on one with the manager of the store. Said they would call me within the next week and I never heard back. Very unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at lululemon in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a lot of fun that it almost didn't even feel like an interview. Dress comfy and casual because you will be sitting on yoga mats outside for the entire interview. Well, when I had the interview that's how it was. The managers were super friendly!

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at lululemon in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application, the next day I received a group invitation. It said to dress casually (they really mean it.) The group interview was at starbucks and I arrived 15 mins early, it was supposed to be with six other people, but only two of us showed up. So while we thought these other people showed up me, the manager and another girl who was there to get interviewed were just talking casually. So by the time the actual interview was going it didn't feel like an interview at all, we were doing popcorn style. The questions she asked were, tell me about yourself, tell me a time when you gave feedback, tell me a time when you thought you had failed but in the end it did something for the better. She made us fill out the availability paper, And I was waiting on my ride so I had an extra time to talk to her. Then the next day another manager emailed me and said "so and so really loved getting to know you and I would love to get to know you" and it was the next day was the one on one interview. She wasn't all that nice got to the questions, and she repeated the questions, when's the last time you gave feedback, another question was when was a time that you had to tell someone no, or something like that, then she asked what's the ideal manager to you and she just made me uncomfortable so I knew I didn't do so well. But I didn't hear from her the next day and a few days later I got a rejection email. :(

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at lululemon in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process took about a week for them to email you from applying to having you come in. Overall, it was a group interview and very informal. We sat on the floor and talked about life experiences, where we were, where are we going, why lululemon. They try to feel if you are lululemon material. Dress code was very informal. Some people wore jeans and cute blouses, others wore lululemon outfit, others wore workout clothes with sneakers. No one had business profesionall clothes on (suit, tie,jacket, heels, etc.)
