Publicly available Testing and Staging website environments

Some companies, when they list their job openings on Taleo ATS (Applicant Tracking System), create publicly available testing ("tst") or staging ("stg") environments.
For example:
https://stgbrinker.taleo.net/careersection/brinker_salary_mobile/jobsearch.ftl

https://tstfidelity.taleo.net/careersection/10021/jobsearch.ftl

Google happily crawls these testing and staging environments:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Astgbrinker.taleo.net
59 results
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Atstfidelity.taleo.net
50 results
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What do you think: why these Testing and Staging environments are public?

Meanwhile, core production environments are available too:

https://fidelity.taleo.net/careersection/10021/jobsearch.ftl
