hey atchoo....if you leave before they send you home you loose your deposit (bond) and all your held commission. Which is given to reps before they go home. Held comission is 2% and last year i got something like 600 euro in held comission. The reps in the busy resorts made over a grand in held comission. Also if you leave early you have to pay your own flights home and the company can charge you for costs endured (this is only if you leave early in the season, like after a month) if this is the case they can charge you the amount your flights out cost plus accomodation costs. Dont worry though Atchoo, you'll have such a great time you wont even contemplate leaving!

yep its a bond for your apartment but i think that its well worth it and cant wait so where you all going with olympic then it says corfu on the agreement form but i said in the interview i only wanted somewhere young and lively and then i e-mailed julian and he said that its up to the person on the training course so where you all from and when you going

hey hunny

basically the 100 is just a bond....as far as im aware its just to secure ur place...cuz obviously ppl drop out and that way if u did then u wont get the money back

i had to pay 150 and will get it back at the end of the season.

do u no where ur heading yet?

spk soon xxx

My concern is that I'm going to miss home! I'm only 18! I didn't really expect to get the job. But I DO want the job!
What about the rest of the commission, do you get it each week/month?

Where do you do your washing? haha...silly question probably, but it's things like this that worry me!

Someone also told me that reps have to always wear their hair up. This doesn't sound good, mine is fairly short and bugger to get up!

You will miss your frineds and family no doubt, but you will gain new friends who become like family.....i really wouldnt worry about it. and im sure your family will want a cheap holiday to visit you and being the rep you can get them the best rooms in the hotel!!!

As for your washing, plenty of options...the hotels can do it if you ask them or you can just phone someone in to come and pick your washing up. Or if ya skint, you always have a sink to wash ya clothes in!!

As for your hair, im a bloke and i cant remember!! as long as you dont look scruffy you'll be fine!!

haha, but can you remember reps having their hair down? I know it's a silly question, but oh my God, if I have to wear my hair up it will drive me insane, it NEVER stays up!!

all the girls with long hair had it tied back...i worked with a lass with short hair and she didnt tie hers back. Mind you we didnt really have any supervisor in resort so we could bend the rules somewhat. For example, your not aloud to eat in front of guests, but the amount of time i was tucking into a beef burger at the hotel bar when a guest walked up to me was unreal. Most of your hotels offer your free food so it would be wrong not to!!!!

Nice! I guess people see the reps eating and think it's a nice place to eat. Hahaha, they must think we're superheros!

I'm a vegetarian so it's going to be a pain in the ass finding food in some countries, hopefully I won't get Turkey because when I visited with college I had to live on pizza and ''cheese toasts'' as there was nothing else!

hmm, the greek do like there meats so vegi's do have a much smaller menu to choose from. But most resorts have italian resaurants which have lots of pasta and salad options.

As for the guests thinking were superhero's....75% love you....the other 25% hate you because your the rep of the sh*tty hotel! Some of the guests get so abussive and even violent! i was picked up by this massive irish woman and thrown out of her room once becuase she didnt like the food and when i tested the food and sent of my reprt i found no problem! bear in mind im 22 and 12 1/2 stone myself!!

I know, it isn't exactly stunning is it? The amount of times I've walked passed their travel agents and wondered what the hell they were wearing! However, I don't care...it's just a job. I heard that we can wear shorts and stuff though, so it shouldn't be too bad?
