NEW YORK — Lululemon has had a rocky few months. Now it’s looking for help. According to a new CEO job ad it’s posted, it’s seeking a leader who can hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes, communicate in Sanskrit and down wheatgrass and tequila shots on Fridays for work-life balance.
The unusual ad comes as the Canadian company’s shares have slid 19 percent after it announced Monday that its current CEO plans to leave. In March, Lululemon suffered a public relations nightmare after pulling too-sheer yoga pants from shelves.
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).”
