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

    Pros

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

    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.

    The culture, team/co-workers and the benefits.

    Try and carve a little more time for on-going training and development. Create a way for educators and KL's to be able to see what a long term career at Lululemon would look like

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

    Pros

    I absolutely love my job at ivivva. My team supports me in my goals for the future, pushing me towards my dreams. The community is unlike any I've ever been a part of. I have a great deal of respect for this company and those who are a part of it.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get as many hours as I'd like, and I know this is a common problem for other employees as well.

    Pros

    They pay you to sweat, they are fun to work with, and they allow you to be creative.

    Cons

    It's still retail, and it makes you want to buy clothes more often than you actually need clothes.
