I worked at Lockerz full-time (More than 5 years)
There are no pros to working here. They are not kind people and they do not value hard workers.
I was with Lockerz from 2009 till 2014. It was my dream job. I loved it and never had any complaints. My naive dream was to work for them until I got old. Once Lockerz/Ador was bought out by LightInTheBox, I was immediately laid off. I was told an hour before my shift ended. There was no warning. I have yet to find another job. It's been six months. I'm not qualified for unemployment benefits.
Advice to Management
Never, ever sell to a foreign company. Why did you have to destroy Kathy's vision? This is not what she wanted.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lockerz (San Diego, CA) in April 2012.
I first had a phone interview with the original founder of Tweetphoto and Plixi. We had a candid discussion when lead me to a 2nd round personal interview at their office in San Diego. He drill me during the phone conversations about my asking starting salary, in which, I mistakenly diverge when I should wisely waited until I get an offer. From this experience and the beginning phases, I learned not to discuss expected salary until final offer is made. This limit my possibility of getting a higher starting salary.
When I was at the personal interview, I sat down with the CTO and 2 other developers, 1 front-end, and other other was the back end developer. The CTO asked basic question as what's the difference between Java and PHP, name 3 of the 5 principles of object oriented development, and basic CSS type questions from the front end developer. Overall, I had a great interview with their small and expanding technical team. Later, the past founder of Plixi sat in and asked me why I don't program under a mac vs a pc. I felt his questioning was a bit rude and forward and lack the understanding that we can't all afford a mac. I simply explain the benefit of development under a mac b/c it ran using linux and it's design programs were better than a pc. He continue to reiterate, why you don't use a mac. I own a pc and can't afford a mac.
Although I didn't get an offer, I appreciate their vibrant culture and wish them well with their start-up. After this interview, I ultimately landed my dream job in downtown San Diego with the best company culture. They offered me a great starting salary; we have a company chef that prepared us lunch everyday. Our company is well mixed and have a dynamic growing team. I love my new place!
