Hi,

I have an interview down in Manchester for a Ski Rep Position.

Just wandering if anyone out there has any word's of advice / what to expect etc? 

Definitely keeping all of my fingers & toes crossed as would love an opportunity to spend a season on the slopes, giving other customers an amazing holiday.  Smile

Hope Bulgaria was fun.
Yes, the assessment centre went well and I enjoyed it too!
Even better I got the job, so I'll be spending the season in Italy!
Good luck for your day in July.

The interview itself is a 1:1 in the afternoon, but to get to that stage you have to reach a certain standard in the morning competency tests. These include a short presentation (you get your topic and target audience given to you on the day, and some time to prepare), a numeracy test, a  written problem solving test and the group exercise.

The group exercise is just exactly what it says. You get given some info of ski holiday packages, some imaginary customers, and as a group you discuss what would suit each group best. The idea in a group exercise is generally to be confident and get involved but don't take over, listen to and involve others, ensure the group reaches a conclusion and watch your time.
I enjoyed it all, although some of the tests feel a bit time-pressured.

Thank you, this is so helpful!
I'm going to the Manchester one in July too! Although... I think I might be nervous now...
I was hoping I could prepare the presentation before the day, never mind. What kind of topics did you get?

It's a completely randon item - one of the guys had to speak about a rubber duck! I don't think that what you say is all that important (although a little bit of humour goes down well, if you are able to). It's being able to show that you can speak in front of a group and gives you the chance to let some of your personality show too.
I'm not going to pretend that it's not nerve racking, but once you get up there just try to have some fun.
What job are you going for?

Oh, how weird... well at least I don't have to worry about it until he day! And people usually laugh at me during presentations anyway... I'm not sure if that's a good thing though...
Congratulations on getting the job by the way, I'm going for ski rep too, so hopefully I'll be joining you!
