yeah that is pretty late, if I were you I'd be prepared to leave 2-3 weeks after your interview. I had my interview in August at Luton for maintenance man, found out I got the job about 2 weeks later. Just dying to know where and when I'm going so I can start to get stuff sorted (ie my notice at work etc) what job you going for, I'm guessing it's either KP or host, they're usually the only jobs left this late on. You done any seasons before?

i might be wrong about the 2-3weeks thing. my first season i interviewed at the end of october, found out i had the job 2 weeks later and then left on the 24th of november, but no harm in being prepared. I'm hoping i'll find out in the next week or so, i reckon i'll be among the first to go out to set up the hotel considering my job and experience, but thats just me guessing. plus i wanna start counting down the day, cant wait!!!

Hey who's ur paddy am working with work a season and the date I was told first off was 12 December but being a maintenance they asked if I could go out early so am heading out 11 November would imagine they all start around the same time maybe not but just an indication.

cheers neil, i thought as much. they always send a few early to set up the hotel and its a safe bet that the maintenance man would be one of them. have u done maintenance before? i'm not too sure what it will involve.

hey alice, where was ur interview? i havent come across any FB pages for skibound, there used to be a TUI one but i think that covers too many companies. I am getting so sick of waiting to find out where and when it's doing my head in.

I had mine in Luton. I'm going to be a handy/maintenance man. this is gonna be my 4th season but my first with skibound. what are u gonna be doing? the longer they leave it means it'll be later when we go out, they have to give us at least a months notice so people can tell their current employer. so at this rate we're looking at no earlier than this time in November, i guess thats still early isn't it

I'm gonna be doing bar work ! Ooo is it? This is my first season ! So I'm a little nervous but more excited than anything! Oh really do they? Yeah cause they said to me between 15nov-15dec is when we will leave but a month Is a big space of time! It's more where I'm going than when! I know I thought we would no well before now but I suppose there's so many people to organise etc that its a lot of work haha! Where are you hoping to go or do u not mind which resort?

Oh really! Never been there before! Only been to la plagne out of the resorts that I may end up in so don't really mind! Ye I'm the same got a mate working for esprit out in la plagne so wouldn't mind going there! Haha I ski! What about you? An yea been 4years each for a week so a fair bit but I'm not the greatest haha! Have u skied/boarded much before? Apart from your seasons so there's not much point me asking that as u said you've already done 3seasons so you've most likely had a lot of ski/board time!

Hey, I applied for a general assistant role with ski bound and the next day recieved an email saying I had got an interview and that they would be in contact with a date etc... This was over a week ago so I was just wondering how long it usually takes and how long it took for everyone else? It's getting quite close to the start of the season and I want to get organised! :)
