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

My meeting started like any other: we presented ourselves as well as had a little of a casual welcoming chat (which made me feel comfortable). After that it was on to the main meeting. What was unusual was the fact that the conversation was really similar to an in person meeting, other than it was via real-time chat!

The questions had to do with my previous experience, why I was obtaining the work, just how I ‘d take care of particular circumstances as well as my expertise of The Chat Store and their services.

This is the last stage of their recruitment process as well as I was proud that I had actually got this much however I was also very nervous! Fortunately the telephone interview was not as terrifying as I once assumed and also it was more casual than formal.

I got asked about my hobbies, what I such as to do in my leisure and also a few inquiries concerning the Live Conversation Representative placement. I likewise had some responses on my ‘Live Chat Interview’, which was great to listen to.

At the end of the telephone meeting I was offered the position … as well as I accepted with terrific pleasure, certainly. I was over the moon as well as I still am!

As soon as I had approved the deal I was emailed the agreements that required to be authorized digitally (exactly how great 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 hereafter I had a phone call with John– my Team Leader. This call lasted about 2 hrs and also he described every little thing I needed to find out about the “Live Chat Representative” placement. I made sure to make lots of notes in my notebook as it is a lot to absorb.

John was a satisfaction to speak to as well as I really felt comfy talking to him as he claimed he would be there for any kind of questions I might have if I am ever uncertain or stuck.

Regrettably…
