Telecommunications Engineer

I recently left openreach and went for a company, my own fault they promised the world. However turns out they don’t have any clients, despite suggesting they did, don’t market it and I’m just cold calling emailing etc. I’ve got some savings but they are disappearing quickly. So here goes, I’ve vast sales experience b2c b2b, telecoms experience and military experience, I’m desperate have another kid on the way and thought this was the break turns out they lied to me and now I’m screwed

      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Openreach (United Kingdom)


      There was an application form, online situational test and online assesment center. The assesent center included a number of team and individual tasks as well as an individual interview. Tasks ostly involve being able to interpret writen information (including numerical), articulate your reasoning and work well with others (when in teams). Providing feedback: During the assesment center we were told we can get feedback if unsuccessful. However, after getting the rejection I asked for it and they told me they can't provide it.

      What is your recomandation in this situation.

    Company Updates


    On Monday 1 October 2018 Openreach people become employees of Openreach Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the BT Group. This is the final step in the move to greater independence. There hasn’t been a bigger day for us since our creation in 2006. Back then, the aim was to promote competition in the UK telecoms market and give Communication Providers (CPs) equal access to our network. Since then 600 CPs use our network every day to offer services to UK homes and businesses. And now, this change builds on the last, making sure that we’re seen by CPs to have greater independence from BT Group so they can confidently work with us on their plans. Our greater independence from BT Group is giving our customers more confidence that we treat all customers equally and fairly. The response to the change has been positive with almost every national newspaper covering the story.
