Many of us long-term LUSH employees are asked how we got our dream job at LUSH. Often the answer is that they started their career at the "top" as a part-time employee during our busy holiday season. We call it the top, because these are our customer-facing employees in the retail stores, and our product-making wizards in the kitchen.
No one is more vital to the holiday experience at LUSH, and their experience in this role helps to inform the rest of their career with the company. I know it does mine, and I talked to several fellow LUSHies who felt the same way.
Take Karla and Yuliya from our manufacturing rooms in Vancouver and Toronto. Karla spent her first holiday at LUSH in a local store, selling our products to customers before applying for a position in Manufacturing the following year - that was 6 Christmases ago.
“Something that has followed me through Manufacturing is the question, ‘Would I buy this?’ Being handmade LUSH products maintain an element of uniqueness with every batch, but if I can honestly answer, ‘Yes, I would buy this product,’ then I know it has meet the quality that I was trained to sell to customers. “

We’ve been hearing about some amazing Temporary Holiday Staff in our shops that return year after year to spread the LUSH love at holiday time, so we called around to find out why they choose to come back to work for LUSH every Christmas season!
Michael came back for his second Holiday with LUSH at our Christiana store in Delaware. When asked him what attracted him to working for LUSH he said “I love the products, as a college student studying plants, learning the ingredients and what they are good for has been great.”
Michael isn’t the only staff member who finds working for LUSH a good supplement to their education, many students of environmental studies, cosmetology, massage and aromatherapy, find that and education in LUSH products helps bring their classroom learning to life. Working retail during the holidays is very accommodating to a college schedule, just as you are finishing up exams and your last cla...
