Yeah I'm very excited. Glad that I have a leaving date now, makes it feel more real. Are you flying out then? What job are you doing Alice? I am a bit gutted that we don't find out about our placements until the training week.

Hi, I have got an interview on thursday for Kitchen Porter/Night Porter. I'm also suppose to have one for general assistant but they said they would give me a date for an interview when available Confused. But it's getting pretty late haha. Has anyone got any tips for the interview and assessment day or any info about the tasks you do. Would be much appreciated thanks!!!

No I'm going by coach as well. Quite glad really as I think I will have more than the allocated weight for a plane. (luggage - not bodyweight lol)  Bar staff? Cool, so you are quite good at French then? I'm going as a chef. Looking forward to the training week, should be fun. 

Watters47. I didn't go for your job but in the morning you will do group activities. I would say be as involved in everything as you can. Enjoy it. They are looking for people who can interact with others. As we'll all be living and working together. 
You will have a short interview in the afternoon. Just think of some experiences that would be applicable to your role. Give examples as when you have had to work as part of a team. How to keep yourself motivated etc. 

Hope that everything goes well for you :)

We are training in Les Menuires. I don't know anything about the place to be honest. 
Haha I'm relying on the "french speaking bar staff" to teach me a bit of Lingo. I'm useless. Trying to learn a bit before I go out, but I want to be competent by the time I finish my season.
Yeah I do enjoy being a chef, working in kitchens. I haven't done it for a while, but I am looking forward to it.
Have you ever done a long coach journey before?It's not that bad. Always a nice little ferry journey to stretch the legs too.  I've done a couple of long ones before. We got lost on the way to Italy once, it took about the 35 hours haha. 
Are you planning on doing any summer work or just the winter season?

Yeah last year an this year I went skiing both on a coach so done a couple of journeys to France! There not too bad they go quickly so it won't be too bad! Haha! Oh god 35hrs??

Cheers for the advice Jimmy, really hoping to get this job as I've been turned down, mostly everywhere else haha. Hopefully will be in the same situation as you guys in a couple of weeks. Good luck in your seasons anyway!!!

Thanks for the advice, I emailed Ami and she replied straight away again, informing me that contracts are being distributed in a staggered fashion, so she will try and let me know ASAP. But she has said I will probably be going out mid December, so that's something! :)
