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

    Pros

    Great discount and flexible scheduling. Benefits and 401k offered. Employees are all exceptionally friendly, deeply invested in the success of each other, and actively strive to grow. Personal development is sought at every level - this is a company of people who want more.

    Cons

    Once in a manager role, expectations can often become overwhelming. Responses are expected 7 days a week, regardless of time off or vacation, and the hours can leave you with only 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night. The company is founded on living a balanced life - work, personal, and health are all aligned - however taking time off for personal reasons is generally not approved and can leave employees feeling burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that happy employees provide exceptional results. The "do more with less" mentality that has taken over in the last year is heartbreaking for employees who sought lululemon because of it's emphasis on personal growth.

    Former Employee - Seasonal Educator

    I worked at lululemon part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    given compensation for weekly exercise, great bonuses during holiday season, and a generous discount on products

    Cons

    you have to be "liked" to retain the job. There is an "in crowd" and if you become well liked during your seasonal employment, you'll get rehired the next year, otherwise you lose your chance. They want you to become obsessed with work, exercise with coworkers outside of work ("sweat sessions"), come in to be coached on your goals, etc. It starts to seem like they want lululemon to be more than just your job.

    Advice to Management

    make everyone feel welcome
