No thanks!

After introducing myself to an agent that was handling chat at the time, I was rapidly transferred to Amy, who prepared and also waiting to start my meeting.
My interview began like any other: we presented ourselves as well as had a little bit of a casual inviting chat (which made me feel comfortable). After that it was on to the major meeting. What was strange was the truth that the conversation was really similar to an in person interview, other than it was via real-time conversation!
The inquiries had to do with my previous experience, why I was applying for the work, how I would certainly manage specific situations and also my expertise of The Conversation Store as well as their solutions.
Amy was wanting to expose my strengths and weak points to establish whether I can satisfy the high assumptions that they set. She wished to know where I would need a little additional training and also where I could bring brand-new talents to the team.

As you have actually most likely thought (by me composing this blog post) I did succeed in my first meeting for the live chat work. I was welcomed to the following stage of the application procedure– a telephone interview with Amy as well as one of The Conversation Store’s Co-Founders, Joe.

I got inquired about my leisure activities, what I such as to do in my spare time and also a couple of inquiries about the Live Conversation Representative placement. I also had some feedback on my ‘Live Chat Interview’, which was great to hear.
A lot of the concerns that Joe asked had to do with my personality. Joe claimed that proceeding with everyone and coming to be a part of The Conversation Store family was a really essential factor.

As soon as I had actually accepted the deal I was emailed the agreements that required to be authorized electronically (just how awesome is that), my working hours, what team I would remain in and all of my log-in details all set for my training.
Not long after this I had a telephone call with John– my Team Leader. This telephone call lasted about 2 hrs and he explained whatever I needed to know about the “Live Conversation Agent” position. I ensured to make lots of notes in my note pad as it is a lot to absorb.
I was after that given the dates of when my training would begin (training lasts around 3 weeks and we’re paid throughout the process) and other details I needed to find out about the training process including specifically what would occur. John was a satisfaction to talk to and I felt comfortable talking to him as he said he would be there for any kind of queries I might have if I am ever before uncertain or stuck.
