Hello, I went for an interview in a suit and i got the job. I'm sure that is not the only reason i got the job but it certainly helped. Go dressed smart and the rest is up to you to prove :).

What position are you going for?

Yeah that sounds like it'll suit perfectly. I got a job with Crystal as a Resort Rep. I'm really looking forward to it. Perhaps a bit too much. Summer is kind of starting to drag a bit :).

I got in pretty early and got job sorted in June fortunately. I'm sure you'll get the job by the sound of it. I take it you're working in Turkey then? Is it not so great? I was hoping to do a summer season next summer too. I guess you wouldn't recommend it?

Ah i see so youve had ages to wait then. I cant get to any interviews until Im back which is mid September. Yer doing a bit of work over here. Its really good just some of it is a bit boring at times but I guess thats the same with any job. No I would recommend it its really worth doing I would just make sure that its something that you want to do and that your in a busy resort

Yeah i guess that is the case. Work is mental for me at the moment. It is literally 6 days a week full on and you're absolutley right in saying that i have just been thinking of this as my light at the end of the tunnel. Still.. Less than 3 months to go :D.

 Despite everyone saying that holiday rep is very hard work i'm still kind of expecting it to be easy going compared to job at the mo. So all is going to be well!!!

I work as a car salesman and the pressure is on (in a good way) to make as much money for the season. It kind of works both ways as in i don't want the season to come so i can make more money but at the same time i want it to be tomorrow cos i'm just a bit bored of everything at the mo and i'm just too excited about it all!

Have you done many seasons before LaurenAmy?

No this is my first season as I was at college so this was my first chance have you done any?

I have done just the 1 in canada. It was very good but i didn't work when i was there so this is going to be a different experience all together and i have got a feeling i'm going to get a lot more out of this. Awesome! Is this a gap year for you or are you thinking about travelling around for a couple of years? I'm thinking i might literally try and see all of Europe; travelling and working.

omg I would actually love to do that never been to Canada just to snowboard 24/7 would be amazing. You will get a lot out of working in a different country just dont get angry when they dont understand you as it will happen a lot 
Hopefully do it for a while until I decide I actually need to stay in England 
Thats pretty cool I love travelling just wouldnt have the guts to do that

Yeah it was really good. You get really snobbish with the snow though and get to the point where if it's not a powder day just do something else. I had a really good time when i was there. The plan is to work in Italy in Sauze but i haven't been given my placement confirmation yet. I think it's coming at the end of the month. Then at the end of the season have a bit of a mooch around Italy especially Rome!

I had an interview with them (for a bar supervisor position) a few weeks ago - just hadn't got around to posting on this forum till now!
The interview's fairly straightforward. The majority of the guys wore suits/ smart trousers, shirt and tie, the woman were wearing a mixture of businessy suit type things/skirts and shirts etc. All dressed up fairly smart!

What I'd emphasise is to know the companies well - what each one does, who they cater for, and their history, market position etc. Have a look into where they operate, and where you may want to work, and have some rough idea to show you have at least thought about the ski season (I didn't do this and felt a bit silly as pretty much everyone else had some sort of idea).
The presentation... don't stress too much about it. Make it unique to you, and just be confident with it... you can do anything really, as long as you can tie it to the job role - I gave a lesson on how to get served in a bar faster, whereas one guy brought a sick bucket from his time on a tall ship and spoke about that. They can really vary!

Finally, jut be confident. They will go through a quick questions part - where they ask the group a question as a whole; make yourself known and put your own answers out there; everyone tries to do this, so it can be a bit tricky. Just be eloquent and again, confidence.

Morale of the story, be confident, know the companies, and make yourself known (in a good way) to the interviewers.

On a good note, I was in a group of around... 10 people? I think we all got offered jobs.

Hope this helps :)

Egg - I love snow no matter what so dont think that will happen just as im not fussed about the sun over here at the minute and spend every minute I can trying to get a tan and being outside. I can play hockey but never tried ice hockey looks well scary but amazing. Also your plan sounds really good wish I could do that been to Roma already its amazing
 
Shanks - Oh ok well done bet your soo excited. Thought that would be the case with dresscode did the girls wear their hair up or down? stupid question I know but just dont want to be the opposite to everyone
where did you get all of your information about the companies from? I have been on all of the websited but cant find any information on teh total ski website about how the company started etc
Oh ok then yours sounds well good I cant think of anything apart from what Im doing over in Turkey at the moment
OK I will try and do all of that throu─▒gh my interview and try not to be shy haha
Oh ok thats an alrighht group size I was scared it was going to be about 30 people
