    Management Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lightower Fiber Networks (Hamden, CT) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 key managers. They were not prepared. I asked questions and lead the discussions. Majority of questions i asked they either didnt know the answer or noted they were looking into it (claimed it was "hot topic"). this Interview was limited to one hour at the end of the day and after the 1 hr it was very clear they were done even though there was still alot to discuss, their mannerisms indicated they wanted to go home. They seemed very focused on someone who could provide an internal service that was very minor in the scheme of things. ( and legally impossible to do in a short period of time) it was clear they didn't have much background on my expertise. They really shouldn't have been the hiring managers for the position but because on had claimed some experience in my field he was selected. nice people just had no clue how to interview or what the opportunity entailed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lightower Fiber Networks (Melville, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    They did not interview me. They hired my directly. I was contacted by a recruiter by phone, and was hired because an employee was on sick leave. I was asked a few questions on the phone by the recruiter and the hiring process was then started. I was hired within a few days of initial contact, and did not have to wait long until I started working here. If I am correct, I started working within 6 days of initially being contacted by the recruiter.

    Negotiation

    Great. I was not interviewed

    Interview

    one phone call, then asked to drive 40 miles on my own dime for face to face interview. It was very casual, and got the sense that they were not prepared to engage in a constructive dialog.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lightower Fiber Networks (Boxborough, MA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    I was called to interview 3 times, the last time should have told me to not take the job. The manager interviewing me disclosed how she want to fire someone in her dept., but she could not because she is old and would probably sue the company and that she is a race horse when it come to putting out work. This employee she is referring has a vulgar mouth, calls people out of their names, and very negative....needless to say that employee is still there.

    The best is to be ready to decline if you don't get what you want from the begining. The promisses are not always true.
