Thanks again tea or coffee.
I've gone off the idea of going back to 'school' for another 2 years.
I think i'm going to try and get an apprenticeship in a customer service role, maybe a travel agents.

Oh no am i really all alone for my interview on the 17th????

Ok well maybe someone can help with my next question......i want to stay close to the base on Thursday night before my interview, just so i'm not rushing or in a panic about traffic etc. Can anybody advise me on where is best to stay, i know there have been other posts on this but which would be closest to the base making it minimum hassle to get to in the morning.

Also i was due to go on holiday this day but have decided to get a later flight as i really don't want to miss this opportunity, does anyone know the approx latest time i would finish?

Thanks again, hope i get a reply to this one.

Wink Refs

If you have any concerns re refs then call HR. I was very worried as I start 8th October but cannot hand notice in at job until 23rd Aug, so last thing I need is work getting asked for a ref before I have told them. Need every penny I can earn before training. Was also concerned re a ref that I may have an issue getting. HR were very helpful and put my mind at rest.

Good luck.

Swimming...................

Can anybody tell me about the 25m swim?
Is there a time limit? Does it matter how you swim it? front, back, etc.
Not the best swimmer in the world, better when I have my scuba gear on....ha ha ha
Do you have to tread water for a time?

Thanks.

Redcrewgirl, how many weeks notice will you give your current employer?. Do you think it's right to give 2 months notice as I've already signed the contract with Virgin?.
