Is anyone going to the Thomas Cook assessment at the University of Westminster on 16th January to become an overseas rep in summer 2013? Does anyone know if it is a permanent job or just for summer? How is everyone doing there 2 minute presentation?

Hey. It Is A Contracted Position But If You Do Well Over The Summer You Can Stay On For The Winter.

Yea I heard it's just for the summer and up to the manager based on qualifications and performance, which is a bit disappointing as I'd have to quit a stable job! :( Haven't started my presentation fully yet but again I know what I'd be doing it about :) x

Its Not Based On Your Qualifications Just Based On Your CSQ's (Customer Satisfaction Questionaire) Results And How Your Manager Believed You Performed In Resort. You Do Get To Pick Your Next Destination Though If You Do Plan On Staying For Winter Which Is From October-March So Dont Be To Worried About Quitting Your Stable Job.

Ok thanks, surely by them only doing temp short rolling contracts you don't get your usual 28 days holiday? How does that all work out? I know technically it is a working holliday, but surely your allowed time off?

What you get is 1.5days off a week. Due to the nature of the flight timetable n welcome meetings you can't request time or change the day in which you have your day off or half day.

Hmmm ok, once you've completed your summer can you then request to just do winters? I have a holiday planned for summer 2014 and by the sounds of it I won't b able to get this time off?

No You Have To Complete Summers To Do Winters But winter Is Optional you can just do Summers if you please. And if you want you can take a year out of work because you are still Re-Employable for 2years so that could be an option for you

Hi,

I have an audition for Thomas Cook Overseas Entertainer this Friday 30th November at Pineapple Studios, London. Just wondering if there is anyone that is going to this as well?

Hiya, no I'm going to the one on 16th Jan at University of Westminster. Do you have to do a 2 minute presentation etc? If so let me know how it goes lol I'm worried everyone'll do some massive presentation, whereas I just wanna get to the point.
 
After doing summers as an overseas rep can you get transferred to work in a store?

Hi Lucy,

Thank you :)  Im getting pretty nervous now as its only a few days away! Im thinking just be confident and hopefully that will go in my favour. I know they watch how you are with other people so a tip i have been given is to be sociable!

If you have fb...you can add me & we can chat there  http://www.facebook.com/natalie.day.98837
