Wednesday the 16th of May was a day that was looming over me. It was my job interview for the company Tom worked for on his previous two seasons and has really loved. The company, Meriski, is the Meribel specialist and they operate luxury, all inclusive chalets throughout the winter season. Tom’s had a great experience working for them and their links to our job in Norfolk mean it’s a company we trust in their treatment of seasonal staff – too many companies treat ski season staff poorly, and I’m sure you’ve heard some horror stories as had I.
On May 1st I applied, and the following day I received an email inviting me to interview, which I accepted on the 16th.
Interview day rolled around and I made the drive to the UK Headquatres , with Tom beside me, as he was going to meet with recruitment and the director to discuss his job role for the following season.
I went up to the office for the interview and they suggested that along with Tom we go out for coffee, so over coffee we discussed the job and my experience.
After finishing Tom and I went for lunch at ‘The Village Pub’ in Barnsley, then for a walk. Around an hour and a half after finishing the interview and my phone pinged with an email..
I GOT THE JOB! They had offered me the job as a Chalet Host and with a big plus of shared accommodation with Tommy.
The following week Tom received an email to say he’d got the promotion to Chalet Manager, which is really brilliant news. I’m so excited to be joining the company for the coming season, with only 5 months to wait.

See above – unfortunatley it’s not me, but Tom looking far too cool this 2017/18 season taken in Meribel.
