    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TalkTalk Group (Irlam, England) in January 2017.

    Interview

    2 stage interview with Techs present. Interview was deceptively easy, they are more interested in their Vile Freemasons. Even if you offer CRB check, it doesn't matter.
    TalkTalk give/sell your Personal info to 3rd parties against your will on a casebycase basis. The staff are very friendly including the managers, but the upper eschelons are more interested in you are a BRITISH SUBJECT. If you can live with this then sell your soul

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TalkTalk Group.

    Interview

    First phone interview, all went fine. I provided work permit status in UK (seeking Tier 2 General sponsorship). Even though I was technically competent for the role I never heard back from them. They do not usually send you feedback, so its quite frustrating to find out the status of the application.
