I was gonna go quite smart, the email never said anything about what to wear did it. I'm going for a children's rep, you?

yeah do go smart, im a kids rep, theres questions about health and safety, working in a team, how you distract children as we have them from 8.30 in the morning till 5.30 at night so its a long day, we take them sailing, kayaking, windsurfing but dont worry if you cant do them, you'll do nanny training in which you'll learn them.

yeah a suit would be fine you may not need a suit jacket if you do a group interview but wear what you feel comfortable in too, in mine I didnt need a presentation I had a one to one interview and thats it but a lot of other guys do a group activity then the one to one so not too sure what happens in the group one, its not really hard so im sure you guys will do great :D any particular place you wanna go to?

Ive been offered Neislon as Lifeguard / Swim Teacher. I got the email last Friday saying I had been succesfull and interview and they wanted to offer me a contract , I would get another email shortly with more details such as dates and resorts etc etc. Its been a week now and I still haven't found out where I'm going. I could really do with finding out as Mark Warner have offered me a similar job , so I'd like to get as much info as possible from each one so I can make the best informed decision!

How long did it take from getting the job to you finding out which resort you were going to?

hey you shold find out your resort any time soon but all of them are amazing :D

hmm Cris i got the email saying I was successful then two days later got the email saying where and when and i had to send references just waiting to hear back to fill out some forms thats been 10 days now.

Can not wait to get out there! Hollie have you been to Halkidiki?

Yeah I rang them on Friday , apparently the reason its taken so long is because the woman who deals with the lifeguards is annual leave. I have to decide Mark Warner or Neilson tomorrow , aaaah!

Yeah I do remember them saying at the assesment day everyone spends a week in Halkidiki doing the training for which ever area they are working.
I havent got the email yet, the only reason I know where I'm going is because I emailed them saying I had another offer which needed to know by the end of today so if i could have the info on my resort and dates then I would be able to make a better more informed decision

i was on the reserve list but just got an email today to say i had been accepted, they said i was going to Halkidiki, but they said that this may be changed closer to my start date.

Ye the Rhodes resort looks well nice its where my parents are going in summer but working for neilson is much better and if you have a good season there is a high chance that you will be offered a season next year


Posted By: NickCraig89
Date Posted: 23 March 2012 at 03:04
@Alex123 ... yeah I am on the reserve list at the min as I cant start til may same as you because of uni exam, I only went for my interview on tuesday though so I guess I am at the bottom of the list at the min, how long was it after your interveiw that you got accepted?? I am keeping my fingers crossed and checking my emails everyday!! I am going to the training week so I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get something soon!!


Posted By: Alex123
Date Posted: 23 March 2012 at 23:22
i had mine at the end of january so a couple of months ago and only recieved my offer on wednesday but unlike you i havn't been told anything about a training week, perhaps its because im being sent to halkidiki which is where they train the staff anyway


Posted By: NickCraig89
Date Posted: 26 March 2012 at 01:02
@alex123 ... Yeah that's probably it, you flying on 19/20 April?? That's when we are all flying for training. I am sure you will be there!! Haha so I could have a bit of a wait yet then, I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope I get an offer soon!! I think they only have 1 or 2 interview dates left so hopefully I'll get something after that :)
