I applied straight away! I patiently awaited a reply however, to my surprise, I had not been waiting long in any way.

As you’ve most likely presumed (by me creating this article) I did succeed in my preliminary interview for the online chat task. I was welcomed to the following stage of the application procedure– a telephone interview with Amy as well as one of The Conversation 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 extremely worried! Thankfully the telephone interview was not as scary as I when believed and also it was extra casual than formal.

I got asked about my pastimes, what I such as to do in my leisure and also a few inquiries about the Live Chat Agent setting. I additionally had some comments on my ‘Live Conversation Interview’, which was excellent to listen to.

It was a satisfaction to talk on the phone to my potential future bosses and I got on well with them, there was a buzz airborne. At the end of the telephone meeting I was used the position … and I accepted with great pleasure, certainly. I was over the moon as well as I still am!

Once I had accepted the offer I was emailed the contracts that required to be authorized electronically (how awesome is that), my functioning hrs, what team I would be in and all of my log-in information ready for my training.

Not long after this I had a call with John– my Group Leader.

Regrettably…
