First Interview

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at lululemon

ProsBelieve in the clothing (quality,durability, style). Good corporate citizen. Reflects health and wellness, and active lifestyle.

ConsDiscriminate in their hiring policy against older/mature workforce. Want all 20 somethings in their stores as educators, while the population is changing radically. They are not keeping up with the times. More and more men and women in their 40s, 50s and upwards are purchasing their apparel. They don't seem to want to reflect this in the staff they hire.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake note of the changing demographics. Your staff should reflect the population not only in age but diversity. There are more 40+ women in better shape than most 20 year olds. This is reflected in my yoga classes. It is very apparent that your hiring practices are not consistent with the law.
