Lululemon CEO ad goes for ‘irreverent’

NEW YORK (AP) — If you can hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes, communicate in Sanskrit and enjoy downing wheatgrass and tequila shots on Fridays for work-life balance, Lululemon has a job for you.

After a rocky few months, the company is seeking a new CEO. Lulumon has posted a joke-filled want ad that it says shows its “fun and irreverent” brand.

The ad comes as the Canadian company’s stock has slid 20 percent after it said Monday that its current CEO plans to leave. In March, Lululemon suffered a public relations nightmare after pulling too-sheer yoga pants from shelves. The company is known for its $100 yoga pants.

Lululemon posted a sign on its Facebook page and in stores Thursday reading “CEO Wanted, Apply Within.” A job listing on its website says, “You report to no one, you are the CEO (duh).”

The company “love(s) that our stores and social media teams are not afraid to spark a conversation in our communities,” Lululemon said in a statement.
