LuLaRoe is both a colorful, millennial-savvy line of clothing best known for its leggings, and a business opportunity for women (and increasingly, for men) to work from home selling clothing, both online and through at-home parties.

One unique aspect of the LuLaRoe business model is that new consultants don’t begin working as soon as they sign up. Instead, they’re added to something called the “LuLaRoe onboarding queue.”

With only about 150-300 new consultants brought on board each day, it’s smart to know how long you’ll have to wait.

Note: Since LuLaRoe does not provide a public interface for questions about the brand or its consultant processes, we were unable to contact the company directly. For this article, we’ve acquired our information from current LuLaRoe consultants and provided detailed information about the onboarding process based on their experiences.

What is the LuLaRoe Onboarding Queue?

The LuLaRoe onboarding queue is a complete list of people who’ve signed up to become a LuLaRoe consultant.

Rather than having a central signup process, you join LuLaRoe by contacting someone who’s already a consultant and requesting an application. You can find a consultant by using the interactive LuLaRoe retailer map.

This interview with a LuLaRoe consultant describes how the initial process works. The consultant you contact will send you a link to fill out the online application, along with the information you need to get started with LuLaRoe. Once you’ve submitted your application, you’ll receive a confirmation that you’ve been added to the onboarding queue.

According to LuLaRoe consultants, there is no cost to submit an application to join the onboarding queue and no commitment required to join if your application is approved.

What Does the LuLaRoe Onboarding Queue Look Like?

The LuLaRoe onboarding queue shows the first name and last initial of all people who have applied to become LuLaRoe consultants and have not yet begun working for LuLaRoe. The queue is a spreadsheet with columns that organize each applicant’s ID number, what information (if any) the applicant still needs to submit, whether they have been onboarded yet, and any notes and comments. You can view a screenshot of the LuLaRoe onboarding queue on this page of a LuLaRoe consultant’s website.

LuLaRoe does not disclose whether new members can see the entire onboarding queue list. However, according to this LuLaRoe blog, people who have been on the list, LuLaRoe provides daily updates via email of your status in the queue. There are thousands of names in the LuLaRoe onboarding queue at all times.

How Long Will You Wait in the LuLaRoe Onboarding Queue?

Currently, you should expect to wait 6 to 8 weeks in the LuLaRoe onboarding queue to receive your onboarding call. This is an improvement over previous queue waiting times, which could run as long as 10 to 12 weeks.

According to CBS, LuLaRoe is currently onboarding 150 to 300 new consultants per day. As of February 2017, a total of 77,491 consultants were working for LuLaRoe.

When you’ve reached the front of the queue, you’ll receive an enrollment call from a LuLaRoe representative. LuLaRoe will attempt to contact you for three, consecutive business days. If you miss all three calls, you can contact LuLaRoe Consultant Support at (951) 737-7875.

Steps to Take While Waiting in the LuLaRoe Onboarding Queue

Becoming a LuLaRoe consultant means that you’re starting your own business. While you’re waiting in the onboarding queue, here are some commonly recommended steps to take to prepare to start selling LuLaRoe clothing:

  • Prepare your business foundation: Open a business bank account, set up your business taxes, develop policies, and establish your inventory system.
  • Develop your online presence: Create a website, business email address, and social media pages for your LuLaRoe sales.
  • Prepare your home: As a LuLaRoe consultant, you’ll keep a stock of clothing on hand and ship it directly to your customers when they place orders. You’ll need an organized space (preferably a separate room, for tax purposes) to store, photograph, and ship your inventory. Assemble hangers, racks, dress forms (for photographing clothing), and poly mailers before you receive your onboarding call. That way you can jump straight in once LuLaRoe gives you the go-ahead.
  • Start networking: The time you spend waiting in the LuLaRoe onboarding queue is a good opportunity to begin connecting with other LuLaRoe consultants and applicants so you can learn more about the business and develop professional relationships that can help you succeed. You can also spread the word to friends, family, and coworkers that you’re going to become a LuLaRoe consultant and generate early interest for sales.

In Summary

The LuLaRoe onboarding queue contains a long list of people waiting to become LuLaRoe consultants. The typical wait time in the queue is six to eight weeks. While the wait time may seem long, you can use this time to your advantage to begin laying the foundation for your business.
