    I worked at lululemon part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    60-75% off product Two free workout classes/week Lifelong friends made from working with like minded people Opportunity to connect with community (studio owners/other athletes/inspiring people) At the end of the day, the company is trying to create a good vibe and culture but ends up with unhappy employees (in my case anyway)

    Cons

    after 6 months it became stressful. There is a lot of pressure to workout at certain places that can be a 40 minute drive away from your house and you’re unpaid for that time, so that is a big investment in time and money especially if you’re a student. There seems to be a lack of consideration if you have a personal life and want work life balance-there is an expectation that you attend community events unpaid. A lot...

    Advice to Management

    Don’t be so harsh on employees. Allow them a personal life and don’t pressure them into attending events and team sweats unpaid and on their days off. Acknowledge your hard workers and give them proper rewards.

    I worked at lululemon for more than a year

    Pros

    - Big on goal setting and both personal and professional development - Encourage feedback on all levels - Generous and reward good performance - Generally value and pay for your time accurately (staying back late etc.)

    Cons

    - A lot of "expected" out of work activities, - Sometimes very short compulsory meetings and potentially very early starts and late finishes for a retail job - Very high expectations and not for someone who is just looking for an average retail job to pay the bills

    I worked at lululemon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You should apply for a retail job at lululemon if: - You like forming a bond with your team - You like working out - You like personal development - You like connecting with people (team, guests, trainers, athletes)

    Cons

    They expect you to do a lot outside of your working hours (and not get paid for it). And they want you to sweat at different locations all the time and possibly with certain trainers or team members which makes it hard for you to have your own work out routine.

    Advice to Management

    Think about if every rule can be applied in every country. Some rules that were made up worked really well in the States but not so well in Australia.

    I worked at lululemon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sporting/gym classes paid for each week. Fun events in-store

    Cons

    Bombarded with messages across 4 Facebook groups. Un reasonable expectation to read important work content off Facebook. Poor and unprofessional upper management. A lot of gossiping in store. Everything sold in store comes wrapped in plastic. Plastic is toxic and smells bad. Majority of clothes sold in store are synthetic petroleum based fabrics, concerning to think this gear is being used when the pores of skin...

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your environmental impact with high turnover of stock, use of plastic to ship. Start making clothing out of natural fibre. It’s not about fast fashion, it’s about slow fashion. Too high weekly targets determining on floor hours, keep it consistent so our rosters aren’t constantly changing.
