As most people know, Lululemon’s CEO has stepped down and there is a search for a new CEO.
I was walking by the flagship store, West 4th Kitsilano Lululemon and saw their window displays proclaiming their job ad. I loved these windows!
It says, ‘and you thought see through pants were an issue…now accepting CEO applications’.
Here is another sign that says, CEO WANTED APPLY WITHIN.
Here is a button that’s hard to see with the window glare, but it says, PEDRO FOR CEO.
I happened to be walking past the downtown Robson Street Lululemon store and they also have their windows with the job sign. This one says, NOW HIRING CEO.
Here’s another sign on the other side of the window. The sign says, CEO WANTED APPLY WITHIN.
Here is a white tank top that says, PEDRO FOR CEO. I asked an educator why they said that. She told me that it was in reference to the movie, Napoleon Dynamite. I had never seen the movie so I didn’t clue in. She said that it was a joke in the movie.
Here is the white t-shirt version.
Here is the label. It says that it was Designed in Vancouver and Made in Peru. The educator said that these shirts have been in the store for three days. I was surprised to hear that since the resignation announcement was not that long ago.
Did they have these white shirts and then sent them somewhere to get silk screened? Did they get the signs made quickly? Or was the resignation anticipated and all of this stuff made in advance?
For anybody who’s interested, here is the Lululemon headquarters and the entrance to the parking lot! It is in beautiful Kitsilano and blocks from the famous Kitsilano beach! It is also blocks from the first Lululemon store that was opened by Chip Wilson.
Maybe you’ll get an executive parking spot! lol
In keeping with their fun job descriptions, some of the job requirements: it’s seeking a leader who can hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes, has Oprah and Chip Wilson on speed dial (among others), communicate in Sanskrit and down wheatgrass and tequila shots on Fridays for work-life balance.
I hear that they received over 160 applications already! I’m looking forward to finding out who will be the next CEO.
I found this Workopolis job search site ad in the daily free paper today.
‘Looking for a company that isn’t afraid to be transparent?’ I’m sure that’s in reference to the recent sheer yoga pants incident.
You can also see a yoga mat, a CEO name plate and a pair of groove looking yoga pants. Wonder who they’re making fun of?
