Hey guys!

I went on the Crystal Ski Assessment Day this week, it was a really relaxed interview and actually ended up being really good fun, nowhere near as stressful as I thought it would be!

Has anyone else been on this Assessment Day, I'm waiting by the phone all the time with my fingers crossed so I'm wondering how long it usually takes for them to get back to you to see if you've got the job or not!

I was at the Surbiton day on the 29th June, so if anyone else was there pop up as I forgot to get anyone's contact details!

Oh no that's no good! How did you find the day? And I've had my fingers crossed ever since!

Requested feedback as I wanted to know why I was unsuccessful and a couple of things - I was too dominate in the group task - which I knew - but also my social media test score was very low.  I'm not really into twitter so need to improve and then I will re-apply

Oh no sorry to hear that! At least being confident is better than being shy though! Have you got any other interviews lined up?

Hey!

Yeah I found out two days afterwards that I had got the job, I'm going to be a Rep in France, couldn't be more excited! Which country did you get?

Hi, thanks for this! I'm applying for Resort Rep, I have a background in events and have dreamed about doing a ski season/getting out of 9-5 for a few years now. Think it's time to 'chase the dream' as they say!

Yes I've looked over the job description loads of times, and looking at Crystal now - thanks for that tip! What other presentations will there be? I feel quite confident with my presentation/public speaking due to my work, I just need to remember to breath, stand tall etc!

Do you know roughly how many people will be there? As a resort rep - do you think I should take on board the cooking/baking things you mentioned? The job description is more budgeting, driving and admin based.

Thanks - Amy

Hi Amy!

It sounds like you are going in to the interview with the exact same mindset as me! I've been in the 9-5 office routine for too long and I said the exact same, that I wanted to go and 'Chase the Dream'.

I'm an event manager in my career so that's properly why I got on to the assessment. Fab, thank you so much! I feel much better about it now and will do my homework.

I'll keep you updated with how I get on! Best of luck xxx

Hi;

I'm Stef from argentina. I'd like to work at a  ski centre for a season. I'm from Mendoza, and I had the opportunity to work at a ski centre. I also worked and study in oz for almost three years. 
I'd like to have the chance to work for a season. I'm able to travel any time. But I'm not sure about the conditions or how does it work. 
I'd appreciate info.

regards

Stef

Hi,

I have been invited to attend an assessment day for a ski rep position in 4 days, I only received the email yesterday and do not feel as if I have the time to prepare properlyWacko
I am 17 at the moment and am quite nervous! 
Everyone seems to be talking about the presentation which I seem to know nothing about really?
What should it be about? How long should I talk for? What else is involved in the assessment day that I should be aware of and anything in particular I need to research?

Any help, advice and information is appreciated:)

Is it the East Midlands one on Thursday?
I know nothing about the presentation either, my sister had an email before her TUI interview with what to prepare so I'm worrying that I haven't been told anything like that.

Yes it is, it sounds like we just have to give a small description of who we are and what our favorite holiday would be??
But i do not know how i was supposed to know that? if i hadn't have looked on here i wouldn't have had a clue! 
Thanks for the reply mwashton

I'll see you there :) Maybe they're looking to see how well we deal with things on the spot? It's doesn't sound like a hard presentation so probably expecting us to just improvise.
I'm looking forward to it!

just wondering if you have thought about the presentation or know anything of it?
Some things on here are saying don't worry about it they will let you know more when your there but some others are saying that they already have one prepared?:/
I wonder how many people will also be there
im also very exited but still very nervousSleepy

I'm just waiting until the day, I think if we needed to prepare our presentation in advance, they'd have emailed us about it already.
I've been an picked up a brochure and looked through the website then just prepared for typical interview questions.

Well done! I was at the assessment yesterday but can't cope with this waiting, I just want to know now, especially if I haven't got it, would have rather been told yesterday with everybody that went at dinner.

There was a few people I thought would get through that didn't, they must have been brutal with the selection. I'm expecting it to be Monday/Tuesday, would love it to be today but I think she mentioned working days

I didn't prepare anything. You do an introduction about yourself, the presentation was the group task, then a speed interview and social media test in the morning and a more in depth interview if you get through to the afternoon but that was still only 20 minutes.

Oh brilliant thank you! I've been reading other forums and they had to prepare a two minute presentation about there chosen resort or an item them couldn't live without.. I was just worried as I haven't been given any info!

Thanks x

Has everyone heard back yet? I've not heard back yet the suspense is killing me! Do they ring the successful people first??

Hello,

I had the assessment the day before yours, I heard back on Friday evening - I am going to Italy!

The suspense was unbearable. As they said in the interview, you will hear back within 7 working days from your assessment day, so I would say they will let you know today or tomorrow! I think they would contact all successful and unsuccessful on the same day, so don't worry! Good luck!

Hey guys,

I had an assessment day with Flexiski in Surbiton on the 18th of August and still haven't heard back. I've emailed them but haven't received a reply, I was just wondering if anyone else had done an assessment day with them and if so whether you've heard back from them?
