A lot of ‘function from house’ work that you locate online seem to be some form of pyramid or ‘start your very own service’ system. Paying a signing up with cost or purchasing their items for you to sell on? No thanks!

Eventually I chose to have another little appearance and stumbled upon The Chat Shop.

At the end of the telephone interview I was offered the position … and also I accepted with fantastic satisfaction, of course. I mored than the moon as well as I still am!

When I had actually accepted the offer I was emailed the agreements that required to be signed digitally (how great is that), my working hours, what team I would remain in and all of my log-in details prepared for my training.

Not long hereafter I had a telephone call with John– my Team Leader. This telephone call lasted around 2 hours as well as he discussed whatever I required to know about the “Live Conversation Representative” setting. I made certain to make lots of notes in my note pad as it is a lot to take in.

I was then offered the dates of when my training would start (training lasts around 3 weeks and we’re paid throughout the process) and other information I needed to learn about the training process including specifically what would happen. John was an enjoyment to talk to and I felt comfortable chatting to him as he claimed he would be there for any questions I may have if I am ever unclear or stuck.
