Very Difficult Interview

Trading Assistant Interview

Trading Assistant
Luton, East of England, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at TUI Travel in June 2012.

Interview Details – The half day consisted of a group exercise, maths test, interview and commercial exercise. Really not what I was expecting at all. Make sure you are good at maths before applying as it is a maths based role (ratios, load factors, ect).

In the group exercise we had to decide out of two locations which would be the best to put another flight on for. This involved analysing a huge amount of data and justifying reasons for your decision with other team members.

The maths test purely focussed on things such as load factors, percentages and holiday prices. This was extremely difficult and not what I had prepared for. It isn't anything like one of the holiday rep exams that many people have commented about.

The interview was probably one of the easiest parts with some fairly standard questions asked (strengths, weaknesses, ect).

The commercial exercise was again similar to the group exercise and maths test - analysing variables such as load factors and stating the best/worst performing area. This was part of the actually interview and you were given 10 minutes to work out which the answers and then feed back to the two interviewers.

Interview Question – State the best performing area of the year by analysing the factors displayed in the table. (Maths test question)   Answer Question
