    Key Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Adelaide
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at lululemon (Adelaide) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was held in the early morning (7am) by the store manager, then second and third in charge staff. 8 - 10 potential employees were sat in a circle on the shop floor and the interview proceeded with questions that were more lifestyle/personality related than retail/sales related which was unfortunate because I believe I would have had a better chance had I been offered the opportunity to a) do a trial in the store and b) explain to them my customer service and sales strategies. The manager told us to be short and sharp with our answers as we were short on time but nobody was - and they were more interested in people who did not listen to this direction and rambled on. I have an excellent history in exceeding daily targets and fantastic customer feedback but they weren't interested in this whatsoever. I felt like they were judgemental and exclusive toward anyone who hadn't tried yoga instead of recommending they try and being welcoming about it. I received an email no less than 5 hours later informing me that I was unsuccessful, however I was not as disappointed as I would have thought as I am not interested in working for a company who hires their staff based on whether or not they do yoga and what their personality type is.
