    Pros

    Awesome employee benefits- yoga and fitness classes, personal development and vision & goal coaching. Managers that invest in their people and create opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    It's still a retails business and there are times when being on the sales floor can be challenging.

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

    Pros

    Upbeat, fun and health- oriented workspace.

    Cons

    Too much focus on feedback. We were
    Encouraged to give others feedback and at times I felt pressured to find something negative about coworkers in order to help in their "development." Working Weekends were a drawback

    I worked at lululemon

    Pros

    Got to workout and do yoga for free. Decent pay for retail. Good discount on their clothes. Meet some interesting individuals.

    Cons

    It was a very gossipy environment. It was also catty and faux inspirational. They basically wanted you to believe that you could change the world with their yoga pants; further, you had to repeat that message to the customers. Basically drink the kool-aid or get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more experienced and perhaps older/more mature store managers.

    Pros

    Fun environment, co workers have a great attitude, 60% discount on all items if full time 40% if part time

    Cons

    It easy for people to get their way. You are not allowed to talk about other coworkers so if they are doing something wrong and deny it, your out of luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise pay for educators and management.

    I worked at lululemon full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Huge Employee Discounts
    -Make new friends
    -Workout Riembursments
    -God place to find yourself as a person

    Cons

    -Management isn't really interested in "listening"
    - Work Life balance only matters if it's a part of the surrounding community
    -Management is condescending
    -Everyone wants to be in authority because of the way everything is structured
    -Constant back chatter among the employees and management
    -Putdowns
    -Unreasonable write ups
    -Lack of Communication

    In this company everyone is made responsible for themselves, in which most of the time it's used against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes listening goes a long way, in order to communicate you have to be able to listen.
