    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.

    PHP Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    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!
