    I have been working at lululemon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great development opportunities! Very strong culture with a focus on setting goals. Supportive of personal as well as professional goals.

    Cons

    Ivivva is the girl's line of clothing produced by lululemon. The organization is growing quickly and there are some growing pains as with any dynamic organization.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to be more hands on and to better understand the environment within the stores and showrooms, most importantly spending more time with our guests.

    Pros

    Work life balance, get to be around other fit individuals

    Cons

    The company seemed to butt into personal life. Managers were trained to probe into things that are not their business.

    I worked at lululemon full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, amazing perks, awesome people. You get to be involved in some really cool events, focus on fitness, and just have fun.

    Cons

    Sometimes the core values of the company are not really put into practice. It can be difficult to find that line between friendship and business when everyone on the team is so close.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need to go off-script in order to really sell to YOUR community, and that's okay.

    Pros

    Not just a retail job wholistic experience Community based benefits Supportive of work life balance Goal coaching and supports in reaching them Company growth Pay is supportive of work life balance and not commission based

    Cons

    Start in stores typically to get higher Based out of Canada (harder to get to corporate level) Very culture based if not a fit

    Advice to Management

    Allow more growth from educator level to higher without having to take store manager level.

    I have been working at lululemon (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Cares about people, awesome opportunities and personal development. Retail hours of course, but strong understanding and stand for life work balance. Great experience running a business with few "direct orders" from corporate.

    Cons

    Retail hours, not amazing take home pay, but many other benefits (like wearing stretchy pants to work and working out on the clock).

    Pros

    A very laid back work environment. Never feel that anyone is 'above' you. Great commission system that keeps you motivated on a daily basis

    Cons

    The whole company culture can come off a little 'cults' sometimes. Very strange language and slang terms used by employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't change much! really enjoyed my time working at Lululemon and would recommend to anyone for a fun and rewarding work environment

    I have been working at lululemon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    lululemon is a great company that is very invested in personal growth, whether inside or outside of the company. I love how interested they are in getting out in the community.

    Cons

    sometimes lululemon can be disorganized and if feedback is not given or take correctly it can become gossipy because most employees are girls.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized, find a more efficient flow and way to complete tasks. Sometimes management needs to buckle down on business tasks and that's difficult to do when you work with your friends all day.
