After introducing myself to an agent that was managing chat at the time, I was rapidly moved to Amy, who was ready as well as waiting to begin my interview.

My meeting started like any other: we presented ourselves and also had a bit of an informal inviting chat (that made me feel at ease). After that it was on to the major meeting. What was strange was the fact that the discussion was extremely similar to an in person meeting, other than it was by means of online conversation!

The questions had to do with my previous experience, why I was getting the work, exactly how I ‘d deal with specific scenarios as well as my knowledge of The Chat Shop and also their services.

This is the last stage of their employment procedure and I was proud that I had actually got this far however I was also extremely nervous! Fortunately the telephone meeting was not as frightening as I as soon as thought and it was more laid-back than official.

I got asked about my pastimes, what I like to do in my spare time and also a couple of inquiries about the Live Chat Representative position. I also had some feedback on my ‘Live Chat Interview’, which was fantastic to hear.

A great deal of the questions that Joe asked had to do with my character. Joe said that proceeding with everyone and also ending up being a part of The Conversation Store household was a very crucial aspect.

At the end of the telephone meeting I was supplied the setting … and also I accepted with fantastic enjoyment, naturally. I mored than the moon as well as I still am!

As soon as I had approved the offer I was emailed the contracts that required to be authorized digitally (exactly how awesome is that), my working hrs, what team I would certainly remain in and all of my log-in information ready for my training.

Not long hereafter I had a call with John– my Group Leader. This telephone call lasted about 2 hrs as well as he clarified everything I needed to know about the “Live Chat Agent” setting. I made sure to make great deals of notes in my notebook as it is a great deal to take in.

John was an enjoyment to speak with and I felt comfy talking to him as he claimed he would be there for any kind of inquiries I might have if I am ever not sure or stuck.
