Beware on any of the Thomas Cook Assessment days:
Do not expect much from the assessment team. They will discriminate you if you are over 25. And if you are not British, you are doomed already. Never mind if you have many years of experience in the tourism industry+customer services and speak 6 languages. It seems they feel intimidated by well prepared professionals and they prefer young inexperienced innocent people prone to be impressed by their "nonchalance" and "savoir fair". It is not an objective oriented team, that should be focused on the skills of the candidates. Instead, they seem to be focussed in their own impact over the candidates.
They give you 2 minutes to sell your dream holiday+an additional excursion. Yes, 2 minutes. Impossible in real life. If you go over the 2 minutes with your presentation, you can start forgetting about the job.
If you are "lucky" you┬┤ll go to the next part and then, if you have the back luck to have your one on one with a feller called Matt, (yes, that one who┬┤s got the american accent) then you better stay home and save the travel expenses. Dear Matt does not even listen to what you are saying and write down comments that do not make any sense.
You might think I am sore because I did not get the job. YES I AM. People like Matt should not be doing assessments because they do not have recruiting skills and they have many prejudices.
When I got my "unfortunately you have not been successful" email, I just reply asking for feedback. I could not believe it! In my email I asked if their rejection was due to my age or to my nationality.
Then this woman called Louise called me back almost instantly and it was then that I realised that good old Matt did not understand a word I said about how customers should be treated with respect at all times and that you have to be knowledgeable, kind, empathic and sincere towards customers, instead of treating them like walking wallets.
And to finish, Louise said that I might want to apply again next year. Such a cheek!
I have been a Head Receptionist with 6 languages skills for 3 years and I feel INSULTED by the Thomas Cook assessment team at the Gloucester College on the 4th of February 2014.
I will circulate this text around the web till some real Thomas Cook Manager sees it and takes action against this discriminating assessment team.

I think the Thomas Cook team did well, to listen to everyone. I think they made the right choices when I went, They want to employ the best stuff and they only have limited positions. With so many applying they have to be ruthless
