Everyone gets that code to start with itís not reflective of the role youíll be doing. If they havenít told you already youíll find out the first day.

It was the normal questions you would expect why do you want to join ,give a time when you gave good customer service, they don't try and trick you with questions it was all informal. i also did look on website to make sure i had some knowledge of the job and look on you tube at the videos, i think they liked that you have looked them up but just relax that worked for me.


Thanks for your advice, I did think it would be pretty much as you have said. Fingers crosses it all goes well.

Cheers

Sorry to hijack this post!!

I believe there is a colour blindness test at assessment centre level. What does this consist of?

Is it the Ishihara plates or something totally different. I know I have red/green deficiency and am wondering if itís even worth my while continuing to give the video interview. Iím fine identifying paired cable, but need to take a little time over it.

Thanks
Colin

Not really qualified to comment on all the roles and what they consist of but fairly sure they fit you under three umbrella's to start with.
SD/Service Delivery which is my role CAL/OMI I can never remember what CAL OMI stands for something one man install.
BCD or Business Corporate Development and FVR, Fault Volume Reduction.
There is also ID Infrastructure Delivery but nobody on my training was put into that role as far as I can remember.

This year there is a big push for engineers to help the fibre to the prem engineers to get their job done so no idea what role that would put people into but from what I read in the LOOP a company bi weekly email they send out or it might of been in the mag they send out not sure. The recruitment drive is so they can get engineers to cover the work the fttp engineers would usually do so as to free up those guys. That may well of changed though and they could be recruiting FTTP engineers.

BCD engineers tend to get told they will be BCD early on as they don't get their vans on the first Friday.
FVR and SD get thiers on Thursday and Friday respectively although again this has likely changed since I did my training as its nearly a year ago and they are definitely changing it up this year. Better facilities to train in for example, they are opening 12 purpose built training centres and if the one they showed us in one of the mags is anything to go off its pretty good. Full on streets with poles manholes the works.
