Re: I have a job interview tomorrow with virgin media for a cable guy,

Think about what you'd like an installer to be like with you as the customer. Can you be like that? Let the interviewer know.

Re: I have a job interview tomorrow with virgin media for a cable guy,

Complain about working conditions as soon as you step through the door... You should fit right in!

Just joking, ive interviewed hundreds of people for jobs at VM but not for that kind of job.

General rules for most interview answers should follow a story format

I did this..
In this way..
Because...
This was the result...
This is how i felt about the result...
This is what I would do differently...

No? Just a a structured answer/response which gives the interviewer all the information they want without much probing. Cuts down on rambling too.

Re: I have a job interview tomorrow with virgin media for a cable guy,

hi there, i work for kellys at the mo as an installer for vm. i work really hard (6 days a week and between 10-12 hours a day) ive been doing this job for 2 years now and i love it. the pay is good if u do your job properly and dont cut corners like a lot of cowboys do. i work as a 2 man crew so have the harder side of the job (pulling in cables and doing full installs etc). have earned a few bonuses recently because of the quality of our work. all i say is, if u got an opportunity ot do this job, then have a crack at it!!!!

Re: I have a job interview tomorrow with virgin media for a cable guy,

does a few "bonuses mean" fixing people up with free cable or selling virgin gear off the back of your van?

Re: I have a job interview tomorrow with virgin media for a cable guy,

nah not like that mate. we do our job properly and completely to virgin media specification. i know that ntl installers gave our job a really bad reputation and we are trying hard to put that right in our area and give customers faith in virgin media again. with bonuses i mean we get monthly cash sums from the boses high up if we get 0% complaints, 0% faults and we pass all QC's on our work etc etc. our site (bournemouth, poole and christchurch) is one of the top sites in the uk now and hopefully the rest of the country will take suit
