Ever thought about working at a lululemon store? Great news – we’re hiring! Every holiday season we hire seasonal educators to join our team. What you may not know is that after the holidays are over, many seasonal positions turn into permanent part-time or full-time positions. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving!
A team that jumps together, stays together!
Here’s what to expect from the seasonal hiring process:
your local lululemon puts the word out on the street
To find if your lululemon is hiring for the holidays, you can:
- check their store web page
- search our careers section
- check their Facebook page. Here’s a list of our stores on Facebook
- ask someone you know who works there already
- drop in to the store to chat in person! (This way your future team can put a face to a name, too.)
the group interview
The group interview is meant to be an opportunity to learn more about what it might be like to work at the store, meet the people you’ll be working closely with, and share more about yourself. Wear comfortable clothes, be yourself, and be prepared for impromptu downward dogs!

Stores want their seasonal hires to potentially turn into members of their team. After the group interview, managers send out invitations for one-on-one meetings. This is another chance to shine and ask any other questions you may have. Got goals? Hope so! Be prepared to answer what your 1, 5, and 10-year plans are. Need help? Check out goaltender!
frequently asked questions
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably. Be yourself. Elissa says “don’t wear heels.”
How do I prepare for the group interview?
Ask yourself what you like about lululemon and why you’re interested in joining the team. Other than that, expect the unexpected – anything can happen!
How do I prepare for the one-on-one interview?
This is the more “regular” interview: questions, availability, goals, etc. Remember that “Preparing for Interviews” lecture from your guidance counselor in high school? It’s like that.
Do I need to be a product expert?
It helps, but your biggest asset is a keen, teachable spirit. The team shares a pool of knowledge, and you can tap into that pool once you jump into the deep end.

Being part of the seasonal team gives you the chance to see if you’re a good fit with lululemon, participate in community yoga classes and events, and learn more about the culture. Oh, and make some extra spending money over the holidays. If you’ve ever thought about what it might be like to work at a lululemon, now is a great time to find out.
Get out there! We’re waiting for you!
