Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Virgin Media (Norwich, England) in March 2018.

Interview

A short 20 minute casual interview via phone was the first process. Fairly easy questions, chill, seemed professional. A lot of the questions were experience based which is something I unfortunately lacked.

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Decent guy, but emphasised how hard the rejection is and spent literally 30 minutes talking about exactly that.

    Also said there's little career progression from this role and that you'd be better off in something else as we want people who do this job for life, get a good commission and never leave or go higher.
    Not really what you want to hear.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Virgin Media (Liverpool, England) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a new manager she was very friendly & chatty.
    I found her easy to get along with but I think that I was partly offered the job because of my experience.
    I had to find the offices at Knowsley where the building is just a huge grey building and doesn't say Virgin Media in big letters!!

    Had telephone interview , then given a face to face interview which I was told there and then I had the job , I was given the date of my induction , car details etc
    The following day received my contract then emails to review the recruiting process . Then 48 hours later received a message that my offer of employment has been withdrawn because I didn't have a perfect credit rating due to the fact I was made redundant last year and missed one months mortgage payment

    Negotiation

    I was offered the job given a contract then the offer withdrawn , because I didn't have a perfect credit rating . When I rang up I was told because as a field sales adviser I would be handling sensitive information I required a near credit rating !
    I am currently run a firm were I handle customer information on a daily basis and an a Magistrate at my local court and no issues . Total waste of time, money and effort
