Lululemon's joke job posting seeks applicants fluent in Sanskrit who have Oprah Winfrey on speed dial.
Just days after the trendy yogawear maker announced that CEO Christine Day is stepping down, lululemon ( pulled a stunt to show it's "always been a fun and irreverent brand...not afraid to spark a conversation in our communities," according to a lululemon spokeswoman. )
Those with their sights set on winning over lululemon in the fake open call have a tall list of requirements to meet: Applicants must be fluent in Sanskrit, be able to hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes and have Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey on speed dial.
But if you check those boxes, the job sounds pretty sweet. Under the job description, the company wrote, "You report to no one, you are the CEO (duh)."
The light-hearted post comes after a dark few months for the company. Earlier this year, lululemon was forced to pull certain yoga pants from its stores after customers discovered they turned see-through when they bent over.
The controversy forced the company to cut its revenue and profit forecasts, and the CEO and its top products executive have since left the company.
So, while the posting may say that the CEO answers no one, whomever does land the job will have to answer to shareholders.
