hiya! ive got mine in january too, already started working on the presentation as its hard to keep under 3 mins! just make sure to get in name, resort, prices (could make up a deal for the 2 excursions) and things 2do on the excursions?! :) refer to things too, for example selling the booze cruise "this isnt your average boat trip on the thames, youll be feeling like your on a billion dollar music video on mtv" if ya get me?? alsooo offer paying by visa also, 1830 interviews always want you to offers visa payments as customers are more willing to pay by card and not use their cash in hand money :)

add me on fb gemma hakner - im not blonde, im a brunette with a knicks jersey on my dp :)!

Here is all the information I know from my assesment day. (I got the job)

Well they called us all into one room then split us up into groups we did our presentations first then after them we all got called into a room again they called out a few names and those people were being sent home then we did a role play with the assessers as if something went wrong and we had to resolve the problem then they called us all back in the room and they got rid of more people then we did a group activity then more people got sent home then we had our one on one interviews got a phone call few hours laters saying I have been successful with it : ) think that's all you need to know haha x

Yeah I agree with Nathan....I got the job too :) and we were in the same group for all the activites. Just be yourself...be confident....when giving answers for your 1-2-1 interview back it up with examples....smile....talk to everyone.....for your role play first apologise for whatever the problem is (every1 gets different senarios) sort the problem out i.e- give them a refund or a room exchange and then offer thems something extra like an excursion, free drinks on their stay etc.
Good luck everyone!!

I did mine on a place in Spain. Just describe the features of the place and the benefits of the features. Yeah I took some probs...well some pictures of the place I was talking about n I took 1 of them necklaces with the flowers round and some massive sunglasses. Loads of people took different things...some handed out leaflets...some made massive boards just depends what compliments what you are saying. Id say try your best to learn it though cos the best ones (like mine and nathans haha!!) were done without looking at notes and looking more towards the audience and it just make you more confidnent knowing it and comes across better x x

ermmmm there were a few girls with heels on and skirts. I just worse trousers and flats as did most of the girls in my group I think....I think its just important to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. One girl though did show up in her trackie jacket, she didnt get past the first round bless her x x x
