After introducing myself to a representative that was taking care of conversation at the time, I was swiftly transferred to Amy, that was ready and also waiting to start my interview.

My interview began like any other: we presented ourselves and also had a little bit of an informal inviting chat (which made me feel at ease). After that it was on to the primary interview. What was odd was the fact that the conversation was very similar to a face-to-face interview, other than it was by means of online chat!

As you have actually possibly guessed (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 and among The Chat Shop’s Co-Founders, Joe.

This is the last stage of their recruitment procedure as well as I was proud that I had actually got this far however I was likewise very anxious! Thankfully the telephone meeting was not as frightening as I when believed as well as it was much more casual than formal.

I obtained inquired about my leisure activities, what I like to do in my leisure and a couple of inquiries regarding the Live Conversation Agent setting. I additionally had some comments on my ‘Live Chat Meeting’, which was great to hear.

A great deal of the questions that Joe asked had to do with my personality. Joe stated that moving on with everyone and coming to be a part of The Chat Store family was a very essential factor.

It was a pleasure to talk on the phone to my potential future employers and also I hopped on well with them, there was a buzz airborne. At the end of the telephone interview I was offered the position … as well as I accepted with terrific satisfaction, certainly. I mored than the moon and also I still am!

As soon as I had approved the deal I was emailed the agreements that required to be signed electronically (exactly how great is that), my functioning hours, what group I would certainly remain in and all of my log-in details prepared for my training.

Not long hereafter I had a phone call with John– my Team Leader. This call lasted about 2 hours and he clarified whatever I required to find out about the “Live Chat Representative” position. I made sure to make great deals of notes in my notebook as it is a lot to take in.

I was then offered the dates of when my training would commence (training lasts around 3 weeks and we’re paid throughout the procedure) and various other details I needed to know about the training process consisting of precisely what would certainly take place. John was a pleasure to speak to as well as I felt comfy chatting to him as he claimed he would be there for any kind of questions I might have if I am ever unsure or stuck.

However…
