#1  Anyone working with thomson leaving on dec 6th?  15 Nov '05 at 20:01
i've been told i'm leaving on the 6th to do a season in france with thomson but i have no idea where i'm heading! is anyone in the same bewildered position as me? i'm assuming i'll be i the alps but i dont even know that for sure and the staff website's really unhelpful. if anyone has any idea what's going on, please get in touch! :tux:
it'd be cool to know some people who are going too!

Guys dont worry, I'm off with Thomson/Crystal tomorrow. Off to France we think we're off to La Plagne for training but none of us know which resort we'll end up in.

Dont worry.

hello! also going on the 6th, so that makes three so far!
I have absolutetely bu*gger all money for the first few weeks, so I'm not worried about the cash machine, can't believe we don't get paid until the 15th of Jan. Am I correct in thinking that? Quiet new year in for me then!

I'm leaving on the 6th as well. Was starting to think they had forgotten about me. Like yourself, I have no idea where I am going either. Ohwell, only two more weeks.

hey again!
i think im gonna have to pace myself with money too - the 15th's a long way away!
gav - when u said the training is in les arcs is that definate? and does everyone leaving on the 6th go to the same training venue?
also, im presuming we dont get to ski during training, so does everyone have the nights off?
i cant believe it's less than 3 weeks to go!!!! masrudolph:
and we're gonna have a snowy xmas! (i hope!)

i got told training is in les arcs when i rung up and seen as it was there last 2seasons i wud imagine it being ther.
all the hotel staff will be in the same training venue (everyone except chefs and reps)
we will get night off might have to do sumat 4abit in night but most nights are free, u wont get your ski pass till at least until guests arrive, be patient ur ther all season

last seasons training course our booze got taken off us aswell, but only ones they could see. we bought a few bottle of spirits and got them in no probs. but i dont see why they do it, the bar serves all the drinks you want and last season on my training course a lot of the managers and trainers were worse for it than we were. although my mate did chunder red vomit all over his room on the last night in training, he didnt get sent home, just a bit of a stern talkin to. but it was forgotten by everyone (managers i mean - he didnt live it down for a while)once in resort. i reckon they just do it to show that they have some sort of discipline in place, otherwise people would just take to p*ss
PS im out on the 6th aswell, i hope at least, still havent heard - my fault though, only sent my contract back three days ago. o well - see you all there

tut tut tut. Hotel staff obviously can't be trusted, chalet staff were almost encouraged to drink last year

Alright, I'd like to say that all eople with 3 letter forum names beginning with M, who've been heli skiing in NZ are twats with the social skills of a dead horse and should probably be banned from the internet in general, as well as sharp objects.
