I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Lightpath (Merrick, NY) in May 2015.
The hiring manager was pleasant however I never heard back on whether or not I got the job. This role does not really manage Real Estate rather it manages agreements with landlords to use part of the buildings fiber optic system so that commercial tenants are able to use it for internet and phone. Not what I was expecting. The actual office is super traditional in appearance and people seem to stay there for years. It would have been nice to hear about whether or not I got the job though.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Lightpath (New York, NY) in July 2012.
I was contacted by a contract recruiter for Optimum Lightpath recently. I submitted a cover letter and a resume for the position. The recruiter called me, we discussed the opportunity and then he asked me to submit a summary of my work history. After submitting the summary of my work history, the recruiter then e-mailed me to advise me that the hiring manager was going to reach out to an internal contact at one of my former employers.
Upon getting that e-mail, I immediately replied and called his screening tactics along with those of Optimum Lightpath's screening tactics into question. I told that recruiter what both he and Optimum were doing is illegal and highly unethical. I withdrew my candidacy from consideration immediately, and told him both he and Optimum Lightpath are not ones I would work.
Avoid their contract recruiter and this company at all costs!

I didn't negotiate cause i would rather let me work do the negotiation for me. They pay is not paid and there is room for growth. Just know what your resume says you can do. They are very smart people there.
