I've actually seen other images of Chinese factories where the workers were wearing coats and hats. I immediately thought they just didn't heat the place, but maybe there's some other explanation... maybe?
Come on they are uniforms - can't you tell?

I'm sure the idea is to assure you it's a real company with real people, and not some shadow company where they just want to take your money. But they can't afford an effective marketing photographer.
- Is there no heat in this building? What's with the coats and hat?
Based on a trip to China (northern and southern) and a couple of similar factories, yes. Heat in buildings is not always common. In the touristy parts climate control is as you would expect. In a couple of office and government buildings I went to that were off the beaten path, it was about 60F inside. Also, it was very common to see very little lighting in hallways and things like that.
- Are chairs a luxury? Is sitting on stools normal?
No idea, but I don't think this is atypical.
- Is working inside a rack the Chinese equivalent of an 'open office' plan?
- Why does this women have skull and cross bones on her pants?
From what I've seen in both China and Japan, there are random-odd American culture influences. They often will see a logo or image, but have no idea of its context, so it winds up in strange places. A skull and crossbones on office wear. A 5 year wearing a t-shirt with a Jack Daniels bottle and the words "Happy Drink!".

They simply want to present themselves as intimidating to potential Bands of Chinese Gangster/Counterfeiters.
Just like you don't pick on a dude in Compton wearing Oakland Raiders gear, you don't mess with a DVR tech wearing the Skull 'n Bones.
What I find humorous is the american names they choose to use. Sometimes they will pick a very tough name, such as "Duke". And then I get some really odd ones, for example, this girl called herself "onehundred"
There was a notorious surveillance camera spammer that used the name "Elvis". :)
I'm trying to figure out what these workwers are doing at these tine workstations, not big enough to do assembly. Is this tech support?
