Athleta – Why Work For Us?

Our mission is to ignite a community of active, healthy, confident women and girls who empower each other to realize their limitless potential. 

Since the beginning, we’ve been inspired by everything women and girls are capable of, whether they’re serious athletes or just getting into fitness.  We create versatile premium performance apparel designed for a life in motion. Challenge fuels us and we are always reaching for the amazing.

We’re looking for people who find inspiration in the same things we do: the limitless potential of women and girls everywhere. If you share our passion for a healthy, active lifestyle, personal growth, innovative product and creating rewarding experiences – join our community. Athleta is a certified B Corp – put simply we put people and planet right up there with profit and we’re committed to using business as a force for good.

Alone we are strong, united we thrive. Together, we create the Power of She.

Alone we are strong, united we thrive. Together we create the Power of She.

Athleta was born in Sonoma County, created by athletes (mostly women) who love the great outdoors. We believe that being fit and active makes life richer and bigger than it could possibly be otherwise. And we’ve seen firsthand how fitness nourishes the mind, body and heart, and opens up new worlds for us. Most importantly, what we have learned along this journey is that alone we are strong, but united we thrive. Our more than 130 stores have become hubs for their communities to meet, inspire and ignite each other into realizing their limitless potential. For all women and girls, no matter our body types or sports ability, there is no end to what is possible when we join together.

That is the Power of She.


We are B Corp Certified

We use business as a force for good. We're proud to be recongnized for putting people and planet right up there with profit. We earned B Corp Certification from the nonprofit B Lab, becoming one of the largest apparel companies in the world to certify as B Corp.  B Corp Certification requires a holistic review of a business’ social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency, and is based on a vision of creating a community of for-profit companies committed to redefining success in business.

Sustainability Sustains Us

It’s about doing the right thing, especially when it’s hard. And using the power we have as a big company to make informed decisions that improve lives—for everyone, everywhere.

Performance Empowers

We solve problems, beautifully. We do it by investing the time and technology it takes to embed innovative performance features into designs that also insist on celebrating the female form.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Beachwood, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Athleta (Beachwood, OH) in August 2018.


    The interview process was very casual. The interviewer and I walked around the mall and then sat outside of the store in a quieter area to talk. She introduced herself to me and told me about the company’s history and vision. It was really more like talking to a friend about a company we were both passionate about rather than an interview!
