I was a rep this year for thomas cook and this time last year i was in your shoes, i was having my interview.
Don't be scared - on the day you meet lots of people who are in the same boat.
you start the day by watching a film about thomas cook and life as a rep. you have maths and english test which is easy then you get split up into different groups  to do your presentation. after that you play a game of cluedo then you have to act it out infront of the whole group - this is where they look for whether you can speak infront of groups. then you leave to have lunch - we went to m&s and the que was a mile long sooo funny.
After lunch you come back and you are told whether to passed the first half. if you passed you have got an interview yeeyyy
The interview is just stuff like when you applied customer service in your last job e.c.t
you leave and about 2 weeks later you get a call saying whether or not you got it.
 
I got the job and in march this year thomas cook flew us out to majorca to start a week training course. i got benidorm and flew straight from majorca to benidorm.
I had the best summer of my life and met loads of different people.
 
My advice is be yourself on the assessment day, don't be to loud ot to quite and remember to make friends and talk to people as if your always alone you won't get it.
 
If you need any more info just ask
 
Good Look !!!!!

How many people roughly go to the same assessment day? What kind of questions do they ask you? Do the people who you have done your presentation in front of you ask you questions too? Sorry for all the questions, just like to know! Haa Smile xx

They don't tell you where you are going untill your half way through the training course. I started my course on saturday the 14th march and on 29th i was told where i was going. then i flew there from majorca on the 21st. you can get anywhere. 1 girl got mexico another got dom rep abd i got benidorm.

on the assessment day they ask you things like " In your last job when do you give good customer service" e.c.t stuff like that.
When you have finished your presentation you just sit back down in your small group and the next person goes up. When i went to mine there was about 100 people there. When i first arrived i met a girl from another rep interview we had together from the week before with thomson but we both failed. then we had our thomas cook interview and both passed. just remember to interact with people DON'T be a loner !!! hope this helps

What about if i don't have to do a presentation? They told me i wont need to do one, but i think i might prepare one just in case. Anyone else who didnt have to prepare a presentation? x
