After introducing myself to a representative that was managing chat at the time, I was promptly moved to Amy, who prepared as well as waiting to begin my interview.

My interview started like any other: we presented ourselves and also had a bit of a laid-back welcoming chat (which made me really feel secure). Then it was on to the major meeting. What was strange was the fact that the discussion was really similar to a face-to-face meeting, except it was using live chat!

The inquiries were about my previous experience, why I was looking for the job, how I ‘d handle specific circumstances and also my knowledge of The Chat Shop and also their services.

Amy likewise provided me the chance to ask any kind of concerns that I had, as well as she addressed them thoroughly. I mored than happy and really hoping that I succeeded in my online chat interview!

As you’ve probably guessed (by me writing this post) I did do well in my preliminary interview for the live chat work. I was invited to the following stage of the application process– a telephone meeting with Amy as well as among The Conversation Shop’s Co-Founders, Joe.

This is the last stage of their recruitment procedure and I was proud that I had actually got this far but I was also very anxious! Fortunately the telephone interview was not as scary as I when believed and also it was extra laid-back than official.

I got asked about my pastimes, what I such as to do in my leisure and also a couple of concerns concerning the Live Chat Agent placement. I additionally had some feedback on my ‘Live Conversation Meeting’, which was wonderful to hear.

A lot of the concerns that Joe asked had to do with my personality. Joe stated that moving on with everybody and coming to be a part of The Conversation Shop family was an extremely crucial element.

It was an enjoyment to talk on the phone to my possible future employers as well as I hopped on well with them, there was a buzz airborne. At the end of the telephone meeting I was provided the setting … and I approved with fantastic satisfaction, naturally. I was over the moon and I still am!

When I had approved the offer I was emailed the contracts that needed to be authorized electronically (exactly how amazing is that), my functioning hours, what group I would be in and all of my log-in information prepared for my training.

Not long hereafter I had a phone call with John– my Team Leader. This call lasted around 2 hrs and also he clarified whatever I needed to know about the “Live Conversation Representative” setting. I ensured to make great deals of notes in my notebook as it is a great deal to take in.

I was after that offered the dates of when my training would certainly begin (training lasts around 3 weeks and also we’re paid during the procedure) and also other information I needed to find out about the training process including precisely what would certainly take place. John was a pleasure to speak with and also I felt comfy talking to him as he said he would be there for any questions I might have if I am ever before unclear or stuck.

Unfortunately…

Hopefully I will be a completely fledged live chat agent quickly … watch this room, my next message will certainly inform you everything about my trip with the training procedure.
