    Interview Details

    I spoke to the Supervisor briefly over the phone. She schedule me for a group interview with other interviewees. Once I arrived at the location with the other interviewees, we were shown a slide show presentation about the company (we also filled out applications and questionairres). The Supervisor supported the slideshow by speaking about her own experience with the company and what characteristics are expected of the perspective employee and also what the employee can expect from the company. After the presentation was over, she spoke with each of us individually and asked a few questions. At that point she either offered the applicant a position or told the applicant she would get back to them.

    Seasonal Worker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at TUI Travel in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The application form was intense, A LOT of information considering the calibre of staff that actually got hired not being that great because of the vast number of people they needed. The interview was equally intense, being a full day. A group interview in the morning where all the candidates for all different roles had different tasks to do in the room, mostly presentations. This was followed by an unprepared presentation where they gave a task for us to prepare in groups of similar job roles and we had to do individual presentations regarding the information we had been given to prepare. This was followed by a cull, and then lunch. After lunch individual interviews were held and were followed immediately by job offers which was a good point.

    Interview Questions
    • The unprepared menu planning - we were given a list of store cupboard items and asked to create a two course menu from them. It was unexpected as it was never going to be reality that on the spot menu planning was going to have to occur.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. I was asked what country I would like to work in and the one I wanted wasn't very popular so I was guaranteed it.
