    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at lululemon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work/life balance
    - Growth and development opportunities
    - Great pay
    - Workout benefits

    Cons

    - Late mall hours, especially during holidays
    - Parking during holidays
    - Allow very limited availability changes

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I find that people with negative experiences regarding employment were typically the no-calls/no-shows, consistently late people, or those that routinely ignored their duties as an employee. Then they can't fathom why they were performance managed and/or fired... As someone with a family and family responsibilities, my managers at lululemon have always been understanding and easy to work with, as long as I had enough personal responsibility to get things covered (babysitter, leave for work on time, request off dates in advance, find shift coverage when needed, etc...) - the things people often neglect to do or blame on excuses.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at lululemon.

    Interview

    Casual group interview at a smoothie place with two other applicants where we talked about our goals and how we liked to sweat. I then went to a workout class with the managers and we went to coffee. All VERY casual and they really just want to see if you will fit in with their culture and the people there since the goal is to spend time together outside of the store in the community.
