Heyy, the interview is not too bad, you have to do a presentation, some group work and a maths test in the morning, then if you are sucessful in the first half of the day then in the afternoon you have a one-to-one interview and a role play, just remember to keep calm and smile and youll be ok!

Just make sure you prepare yourself as much as you can, do you live near the assessment centre? Make sure you plan your journey for enough time and get there as early as you can, if you are one of the first people there then you can start talking to people when they arrive and that will calm your nerves. Just make sure you keep calm on the day as the assesses are looking to see if you can deal and work under pressure. How is your maths? Xx

Thanks. Yeah I live reasonably near the centre and the centre is right next to the train station so that is a bonus. My maths is ok. Haven't done it properly since school so shall need to brush up on it. What kind of maths questions do they ask?

Everything above is great advice! Be  yourself, don't try to be somebody your not! The best bit of advice I can give is to just relax! I wish my interview was in January so I didn't have to wait so long! Just want to go! Sent me £100 this week also!

There's 10 questions and you get 20 minutes, they also give you a calculated. Basically about percentages, and converting euros to pounds and vice versa. Just read the question carefully, and double check your answer that's the best tips I can give! Exactly, be yourself :)

I sent my £100 yesterday! Hope it gets there by Monday with in the 7 days! Really want to find outy placement now!! We still have another month or do yet!!

So what's the £100 for? What do you have to pay for while you are over there working? How much do you get paid?

Posted By: Cakes<3
Date Posted: 08 December 2011 at 23:59
Oh thats strange the lady I spoke to said I needed to send it by the end of the week! Never mind, I just want to start getting the information now and I've started buying things already!

The £100 is a security deposit for flights/accomodation/training etc, the wage isn't fantastic but you get your accomodation and training included

What should i expect in the TUI assessment day, heard so many stories, but ive just re-read the attachment i gt in the e-mail - it states that you do not need to prepare for any presentations as all will be explained in the introduction when we get there!
 
Any one know for sure?
 
Thanks
 
Nick


Posted By: Cakes<3

@irishgal - I think that they only do interviews over here and you would possibly have to come over to manchester or somewhere for an interiew.

 
@Nick - No you don't have to prepare a presentation before you go but they give you plenty of time when you get there to prep! Whens your interview? Good Luck!!!

@holly - I've accepted :-) I had mine on the 2nd December at Gatwick, you? Xx

@Nick - yeah with thomas cook you have to prepare a presentation, if you are mainline or transfer it has to be on your favourite holiday destination, if you have applied for escapades then your presentation will be on excursions you have to sell. You can take notes in too :-)

Thanks for offering your advice it will be a great help if you can answer any of my questions :)
My training is UK based, do we fly straight to our destination after training or go home for a few weeks?
When do you get your uniform list and is there lots to get?
Whats your accomadation like?
Do you work throughout the winter?
My bank account is trying to charge me for every time i withdraw abroad have you had the same problem?
I have been placed in Greece do you find out after your training whereabouts?
sorry for all the questions, I am just very excited and trying to get prepared- Hopefully we will hear more info soon Callie xxx

@irishgal - I don't know, we have like a National Insurance card which has our number on it, why don't you give recruitment a call and see what they say?
@Lisa - What resorts have you worked in?
@ccope* - Just be yourself, dont be to quiet and talk to people, dress smartly and listen carefully to whats being asked throughout the day and you will be fine!

@ccope* - is that for thomas cook interview because for TUI you don't have to prepare anything? There is also a maths test but  it is fairly straight forward. There is 10 questions and its about converting for sterling to euros and common sence things just make sure that you double check your answers as the test is a big part on if you get through to the rest of the day. There is group work as wel, just make sure you participate enough. :)
I think ive added you on twitter, but i don't understand it really lol

If you are a holiday advisor then you will do your training in the country that you will be working in (unless you start late in which case your training will be in the UK).  during the training you will be constantly watched and they will try to profile you into resorts and hotel types.  You find out which resort you will be working in at the end of the general training week.
 
TUI provide your uniform - you need to buy black court shoes with a heel between 1 and 3 inches and plain white trainers (they will let you know this before you go)
 
Accomadation varies between countries, mine has always been fine.  Your normally in a 2 bedroom apartment so you will be sharing with someone. 
 
You have the option of working winter - you put in all your placement requests during August.  a lot of people want to work winter and there aren't that many places so the better you are over the summer goes towards whether you'll get winter work or not.
 
I'm with Halifax and they charge me £1.50 everytime I use my card.  I get around this by drwing quite a bit of money out at once rather than £10 or £20 a time
 
I've done 2 summers in Cyprus, a winter crusing on the river Nile in Egypt, a summer in majorca.  I'm off to do winter in Lanzarote in 2 weeks.
 
All experienced reps have just had their summer placements confirmed so once they've sorted us lot out then you'll get more information.  newbies normally hear around end of March.
 
Ccope - when you do your presentation try to 'sell' whatever you're presenting to as many different types of people e.g. if you are trying to sell a restaurant to somebody - does it have a kids menu, do they have outside seating, do they have a smoking area, do they have pensioners discount, do they do special offers for sunday lunch, do they do lunchtime discounts etc etc.  I'm not sure what you have to do your presentation on so can't be more specific but try to market it to as many different types of people as you can.
 
I know you all want to find out everything now and it's very exciting but it is quite a long waiting process I'm afraid.
 
I love repping, it's the best job in the world more often than not.  You do also have days where it's hell on earth and you just want to run home but those moments pass.

@Lisa - can the white trainers have a logo on them or had to be completely plain? I'm struggling to find all plain ones. We have had emails today saying we will hear where we are bein placed in the beginning of Feb, so not long to wait now!
