Mission: Whether it’s TV, mobile, home phone or super-fast broadband services across the UK, at Virgin Media we’re 100% focused on making our customers lives easier, richer and a little bit more fun. It’s not a nine-to-five, clock in and tune out sort of place. And there’s no ...
I have been working at Virgin Media full-time (More than a year)
Dynamic 'Virgin' culture, sense of empowerment, pride in the brand - everyone wants to do a great job. Liberty Global investment is fantastic and helping Virgin Media to compete in a challenging market
The entrepreneurial spirit means it is very fast paced so it may not suit everyone. Make sure you are ready for a roller coaster ride before you join!
Advice to Management
Keep the Virgin spirit alive - it's a winning culture
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Virgin Media.
The interview was not a face to face interview, but an automated video interview process - you were given a link to follow, told you would be asked three questions, that you would have one minute to consider your response and two minutes to record your answer. No questions in advance, no pause button and no re-record; once the process was under way there was no option but to keep going. If Virgin Media wanted to only hire people that are very good at spot interviews, or if they wanted to hire someone that has TV presenter skills - then this is the perfect interview. On the other hand, if they want to hire the right person for the job, someone with the right combination of skills, then they should perhaps make the effort to interview candidates in person - either via video call or otherwise. This process was awful and distracting (you're looking at your own face full screen), not a method designed to put people at ease and get the best out of them, unless you're someone that thinks 'auditioning' for a senior manager role is a good idea.
