At the end of the telephone meeting I was used the setting … and I approved with wonderful enjoyment, certainly. I mored than the moon as well as I still am!

Once I had accepted the offer I was emailed the agreements that needed to be signed electronically (how cool is that), my working hours, what team I would certainly remain in and all of my log-in information prepared for my training.

Not long hereafter I had a call with John– my Group Leader. This telephone call lasted around 2 hrs and also he discussed every little thing I required to understand about the “Live Conversation Agent” position. I saw to it 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 certainly commence (training lasts around 3 weeks and also we’re paid during the process) and also various other details I needed to find out about the training procedure consisting of specifically what would occur. John was a pleasure to talk to and I really felt comfortable talking to him as he stated he would be there for any type of inquiries I might have if I am ever before uncertain or stuck.
