o nothig hard..  just usual interview questions like 3 words to sum yourself up, unique selling point, why you want the job, she might ask about things o your cv nothing hard at all dont worry about it!!

general assistant is pretty much chalet host without the cooking.
let us know how you get on!! x

Hey I got a job offer this morning, going to Meribel which will be awesome. Have never heard of anyone who has worked for this company before tho which kinda worries me - anyone know if they are okay to work for etc? Worked for Mark warner last year and I doubt anyone could be worse than them i hope.
 
Cheers
xx

Heya they asked me what resorts I had been to before but not if I knew anything about the company. I asked them questions like can my friends come and visit and can I take my car how much time will I be able to spend on the slopes/in the bar! Good luck!

i heard the next day :( they are soooo bad in keeping in contact though I am still chacing them for a start date and to hear when my contract will be getting sent to me. U should just call them up and get a straight answer from them although you will have to speak to the French lady in their office who seems to answer the phone and not understand a word that anyone says lol
 
Does anyone know if they post it or e-mail it?

any one else still left wondering what exactly is included, not included after reading your contracts? specially in terms of accommodation situation! seems like a lot of administrative departments in ski companies struggle to do pretty simple things loll lol

they seem to make things longer and more complicated than it should be. My contract with Mark Warner last year was a one page thing with a 2 page handbook - simple unlike that massive handbook they ahve sent out lol the accomidation is usually in hotel and u share with up to 4 people. yea they have basically forgotten to put my contract in the e-mail. i can tell they are gonna be great to work for lol x

hey All,
 
I am going with Izzy to France to work for Ski France through UKOH. We've been told we won't know resort until after our training in La plagne. We fly early on the 1st December from gatwick to Lyon.Anyone else-perhaps we can all meet at the airport?
