    Interview

    Way too long. 4 interviews for a low paying job. First interview is with a group, the second interview was over a sweat session, the third interview was face to face and the 4th interview was again face to face and a bit silly. Be patient if you really want to get in.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at lululemon (Pleasanton, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    2 step interview process. The first was a group interview and the second was a one-on-one. Was informed that they were interviewing for both Key Leader and Educator positions. The questions asked during the group interview were the same questions on the job application website. The one-on-one was more tailored toward how the interviewee would best fit a leadership role.

    I was actually downgraded from a full-time key leader position to a full-time educator position to a part-time educator position. Not sure how that happened.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at lululemon (Huntersville, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and it took about 3 weeks to hear back from someone. Then they invited me to a group interview, it took place at a whole foods grocery store near the lulu location I applied for. It's a comfortable casual interview, for a position like educator or key leader your best bet would be to wear something lululemon. The interviewer got back to us quick with an answer to whether or not we go the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at lululemon.

    Interview

    I applied online to one store, was offered a group interview (via email), but I was still finishing school and wasn't able to attend. He suggested I apply to another location, so I did. It took about a month for them to call me, but I went in for an interview with the assistant manager and another employee. They asked me similar questions to the 11 online application questions. I totally thought I nailed it. One thing I thought was strange, is that online I applied for a regular sales associate position, but during the interview they told me the job description for the Key Leader...ultimately they didn't call me but the only thing I can think of is I didn't have a completely open schedule, as I also teach fitness classes (didn't think that would be a negative for them!). I emailed them asking for feedback, but like others, got no response. Kinda disappointing... Also, I was worried about what to wear and after some researching, wearing lulu is your best bet :) they say "dress casual"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at lululemon (Durham, NC) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email invite to a group interview, in the group interview I was in I felt like I was the only one with any retail experience ( I am also a very active person) , was told we would hear by the following week whether they wanted to move forward or if they were interested in other candidates, never heard anything back, followed up to see if they had made any decisions and never received a courtesy follow up reply which is not very professional

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online then 2 days later they called to set up an interview I met with 2 asst managers at a nearby cafe. They asked about past employment and why do I want to work there and what can I bring to the team. The store is nice they like of you mention products by name. Also feedback from co workers and customers is a daily thing. I'm use to 6month review on how my performance is. I was invited to workout at a studio, then met with manager a day later. I was offered job but declined due to school schedule.

    Interview Questions

    • How do I sweat - it is on the online app and they asked me How do I sweat in interview. I don't think they get a copy of online application   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    There would have been a scheduling conflict with school hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at lululemon in October 2013.

    Interview

    After applying online, I recieved an email that night asking me to come to a group interview. I was very excited in the interest. However once I arrived they informed us all that they weren't hiring for the key leader position that I was expecting to interview for. Lululemon was only interviewing for part time seasonal positions. I was very disappointed for the simple fact that I am looking for a career not a part time seasonal job. I appreciated the interest and I continued with the interview and was asked back for a second interview the following day. I had other things to attend to that week so I was able to make it. I got an email asking to come in again for another interview. I didn't understand the intense interview process that was so unorganized, and last minute, and wasn't taken into consierdation of other peoples lives for just a part time seasonal position. I was very disappointed with the experince since it is such a respected and well known company.
