I have been working at LifeLabs Learning full-time (More than 3 years)

- Labmates: Each and every Labmate is unique and truly special.
- Retreats: We have 2 retreats per year where we reconnect with our mission, values, and most importantly our Labmates.
- Values: Everyone really lives and breathes our values in their own ways. I resonate with every one of our values and I love how decisions are made with these in mind.
- Meetings: Our meetings are full of laughter, puns, playfulness. We're a good blend of work and play.
- Small startup: Being a small startup, things move fast. If you're up for fast-paced work, this is the place for you!
- Connection: I wish I could see our West Coast Labmates more often.
Advice to Management
I truly love working with both of our Co-CEOs (LeeAnn & Tania). They work so well together and really make LifeLabs a great place to work. They are both passionate about the work we do and I can't imagine LifeLabs without them <3

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at LifeLabs Learning (New York, NY) in December 2019.
I felt like a subject rather than a candidate.
It took six weeks. There were four interviews. The general procedure was that they’d start video recording, ask me scripted questions, and I'd answer. Then they’d ask what questions I had for them. They’d answer. After responding to a few of my inquiries, they’d be like, “We only have a few minutes left,” or, “We’re all done.”
Appointments were scheduled with start and end times, but they ended every interview sooner than the allotted duration because we completed their scripted process. That led me to believe the team was over-assigned, not interested in me as a potential candidate, and more invested in completing the task of collecting a large number of application subjects on video. The team was friendly, yet apologetic about the process, which gave me the impression they were being nice because they knew I was wasting my time.
In one interview, I asked what questions the interviewer had for me, which stumped them. I found it odd that—when unscripted—a Doctor of Psychology couldn’t think of a single question to ask an applicant/potential coworker. I couldn’t help but be curious about how everyone’s answers would’ve been different if we weren’t being video taped. When I found myself wondering if they were recording me so someone could examine my micro expressions, I began to question if I wanted to work there at all. (Perhaps hindsight bias would have me feeling differently had I received an offer.)
On a positive note, I learned a bunch while researching the company, and the process made me reassess how I can better convey my knowledge to potential employers and/or business partners.
