After presenting myself to an agent that was taking care of chat at the time, I was rapidly transferred to Amy, that was ready and also waiting to start my meeting.

My meeting started like any other: we introduced ourselves and had a little of an informal welcoming conversation (which made me really feel at ease). Then it was on to the main interview.

This is the last stage of their recruitment process and I was proud that I had actually got this much however I was also very worried! Fortunately the telephone interview was not as frightening as I as soon as believed and also it was extra informal than formal.

I got asked about my hobbies, what I like to do in my spare time and a couple of questions concerning the Live Conversation Representative placement. I likewise had some comments on my ‘Live Conversation Interview’, which was fantastic to hear.

A great deal of the questions that Joe asked were about my personality. Joe stated that proceeding with everybody as well as ending up being a part of The Conversation Store family members was an extremely important factor.

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

Not long after this I had a call with John– my Team Leader. This phone called lasted around 2 hours and also he explained whatever I needed to learn about the “Live Chat Agent” placement. I saw to it to make great deals of notes in my note pad as it is a lot to take in.
