Wellness brand Lululemon has employees comparing it to a cult
April 14, 2021
“On the outside looking in, Lululemon seems really kind and really inclusive, as long as who you are includes what they want you to be,” Emma, the employee, said.
She added: “Often, I just came home crying.”
Workers also said that they were “heavily encouraged” to workout daily and often felt pressured to share their personal problems with their bosses.
Another employee, Erin, who worked at a Minnesota store, said that company made it more difficult for minorities to feel like their voice mattered.
“I think they definitely don’t appreciate all types of personalities,” Erin, an Asian-American woman who worked for Lululemon, said. “And it’s harder for minorities to feel like they have a voice during training when they’re constantly being talked over.”
Lululemon denied any of the claims made in the report.
