William Hill job interview tips
« on: August 30, 2010, 02:42:27 PM »


William Hill job interview tips and questions, answers and what to wear, please discuss here.

All you need to know is, the number on the right of standard english betting ?(fractional) is the money you bet, the number on the left is what you win. For example 2/1 - for every one unit put down, you will get two back.
8/13 - You have to put on 13 to get 8 back.

In sports betting (football, rugby etc) you rarely get something to 1 for results, more like 6/4 or 9/2, 3/7 etc. However first goalscorers and results and often horseracing will have fractional odds to one, for examples 7/1, 4/1 etc.

You will also get your stake back. So with odds of 8/13. If you bet 13 you will get that back along with your profit of 8, providing that your selection wins. Or you'd obviously make a loss no matter the outcome.

Turning weird odds like 8/13 into decimal odds makes it much easier to calculate potential winnings. This is how you do it:

You do both numbers either side of the / divided by each other plus 1. So with odds of 8/13 it will be 8 divided by 13 + 1 = 1.62. So say I bet 63.45 using these odds. My potential return would be 63.45 x 1.62 = 102.50.

What to wear at william hill job interview?
« Reply #3 on: September 12, 2010, 09:05:24 PM »
A suit with a shirt and tie, and shoes that preferably aren't too garish? Men should wear a black suit and women can be quite straight forward and not too short skirts or something.

William Hill phone interviews? Be polite, professional, courteous and make sure you've got a pen and paper with you. Phone interviews are easy.

good luck.

Brilliant thread, full of excellent information.  As a non gambler I wouldnt apply to work in William Hill anyway, but for those that need a job there, why not!  It could well be a great place to work for, i just couldnt as i dont like gambling (and thats not because i have never understood how the "odds" work - thankyou for explaining that one too)

For keen gamblers or for those who understand how betting works, William Hill is a reputable firm to work for.


After reading the posts here, I would suggest that anybody applying to work at William Hill either already understand the gambling rules and how it works or makes sure that they find out before going for the interview.


It would be embarrassing to have to tell the interviewer that you had no idea what he was talking about!
