    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Discount, benefits, positive people, free fitness classes

    Cons

    Short shifts, variable schedule, difficult to schedule time off, great values but were poorly applied by store management

    Advice to Management

    Use common sense and do the right thing rather than blindly adhering to core values because they can be really questionably applied if you're not vigilant.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at lululemon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly/Supportive culture Flexible work hours Great benefits

    Cons

    Lack of autonomy High turnover of contractors Poor management from above

    Advice to Management

    If the nature of the business is to be reactive rather than proactive, it needs to be staffed for that. Hire more full time employees, give people a little more breathing room. Cycling through contractors is eroding the company culture, which will hurt in the long run .

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at lululemon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great base pay, bonus and benefit programs- they are truly unmatched in the retail sphere. Free fitness classes. Lululemon attracts some really wonderful people so your co-workers will be great. You feel like you are part of a community here. They also invest in their people and offer a lot of personal development opportunities.

    Cons

    There can be a lack of work/life balance. The company expects you to work hard, often in overtime. They also ask you to take part in community events and group fitness classes outside of your already scheduled full time hours. Expectations are very high. Corporate lingo/culture is strong, you're expected to 'speak the language' and encourage others to do so in order to move ahead.
