After introducing myself to an agent that was managing conversation at the time, I was rapidly transferred to Amy, that prepared as well as waiting to begin my interview.
My meeting began like any other: we introduced ourselves as well as had a little bit of a laid-back inviting conversation (which made me really feel comfortable). Then it was on to the main meeting.

At the end of the telephone meeting I was supplied the placement … as well as I accepted with excellent satisfaction, certainly. I was over the moon as well as I still am!
When I had actually accepted the deal I was emailed the agreements that required to be signed digitally (just how awesome 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 call lasted around 2 hours as well as he clarified everything I required to understand about the “Live Chat Agent” position. I made sure to make lots of notes in my notebook as it is a lot to absorb.
I was then given the days of when my training would certainly start (training lasts around 3 weeks and we’re paid throughout the procedure) as well as various other details I needed to know about the training procedure including specifically what would take place. John was a satisfaction to talk with and also I really felt comfortable chatting to him as he said he would be there for any kind of queries I may have if I am ever not sure or stuck.
