Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at lululemon (Savannah, GA) in August 2015.

Interview

First interview was very informal. Everyone wore LuLu Lemon, we sat on the ground outside, and discussed life. At my location, three people were interviewed for two positions. I did not get a second interview despite being professional, taking notes, and wearing LuLu Lemon. I believe that the interviewer was looking for something in particular. I was the only "white" girl at my interview.

    Interview

    I applied online to a bunch of stores, and heard back from two on the same day. Both were group interviews that were very relaxed and fun. Both times the assistant manager said they would be getting back to us that day or the next to let us know whether or not we'd be going to the next stage... I haven't heard back and it's been a week now. I sent a follow up email, but it was ignored.

    Interview

    The first interview is a group interview. It's fairly laid back. If you have any lululemon clothing, wear it. After the group interview you should hear back within 2 weeks whether you got the second interview or not. Dress nicely for the second interview. FOR EVERY INTERVIEW YOU SHOULD ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY.

    Interview

    Getting the interview was easy, all I did was call the store closest to me and ask if they were hiring. They'll usually tell you about the next group interview that's coming up because they have them all the time. So when I got to the interview there was about 10 of us total and I knew I wasn't going to get it because there were at least 4 girls who already were friends with the manager or long-time customers of that specific store, so they already had an in with the manager. The questions were easy and the managers were nice, so the overall vibe was a good one. I didn't hear back from them because even though I did well in the interview, they were just too many people who already knew the manager taking the jobs.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at lululemon (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a mutual friend who passed along my information to the manager of the store. The manager invited me to sit down for a one-on-one interview a few days later at a local restaurant. I read quite a bit about the lululemon culture before the interview and I can say that - for better or worse - my interview was consistent with all the stereotypes you hear about the company and the people who work there. The first thing my interviewer told me was she didn't care at all about my professional experience, she just wanted to know who I was, what I liked to do, etc... since lululemon was "more than just retail." Overall, the interview was fairly casual and unstructured,it turned out to be mostly a conversation about my hobbies and personal aspirations. After a few questions about my personal life, "why lululemon", and one passive-aggressive comment about my hair, I asked her a few questions about the store environment and the interview was over. The whole interview lasted about 45 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at lululemon (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to come in for a group interview and wear comfortable clothes because we would be sitting on the floor. I think I overdressed, because everyone was in leggings and workout clothes, and I wore jeans and a button up shirt. We sat on yoga mats and introduced ourselves. We started by letting go of anything negative we were dealing with by talking about it (traffic, parking, etc) so that we could then be "present" and redirect our energy. The interviewer asked some interesting questions such as "what is your spirit animal" and everyone was expected to respond to each question one by one. It was a little awkward, but kind of more laid back than most interviews which I liked! They told us at the end of the interview that they were only looking to hire one person, and also said they would send an email out by next week.

    • "How do you like to sweat?" "Discuss a time that you received feedback, and how it made you feel." "What is your spirit animal and why?"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at lululemon in June 2015.

    Interview

    I did a group interview with 5 other people. The questions were very superficial and personality based. It was definitely awkward and I felt like the two girls conducting the interview were bored out of their minds. I have no idea how they could possibly make a decision on who to hire based on the questions they asked. I thought I had a lot more relevant experienced than the other candidates and gave answers with specific examples and extensive knowledge of the company and products. I heard back two days later that I would not be given a 2nd interview. I asked for feedback and did not receive any response. I know one of the girls came to the store with a friend who used to work there and it seemed that another girl knew the interviewers prior. I guess that could be the reason I was not given a 2nd interview.
