I had been searching for a job functioning from home for some time as well as will give up. Many ‘work from house’ tasks that you find on the internet appear to be some form of pyramid or ‘begin your own service’ scheme. Paying a joining charge or getting their items for you to sell on? No many thanks!

One day I decided to have another little look as well as came across The Chat Shop. I saw the “Live Conversation Agent” task on their careers web page and also, after reviewing the description, a big wave of joy came over me. Not just did I suit their demands to a tee (precise learner with an inquisitive mind, strong ability to multi-task, high levels of organisation adp job boards and social media sites to post to and also an inputting rate above 80 words per min), it also felt like a job that I would really like to do!

I used quickly! I patiently waited for a reply but, to my surprise, I had not been waiting long whatsoever.

Amy, a Group Supervisor at The Chat Shop, emailed me and also provided me a ‘Live Conversation Interview’; adhering to on from the first application inquiries, this is the initial stage of the recruitment process.

I was rather thrilled as I had actually never experienced an interview by doing this before. Around 3 o’clock one mid-day, it was time for my interview through The Chat Store’s site. I opened my web browser, went to The Conversation Shop homepage as well as just clicked the live conversation tab. I had arrived at my meeting.

After presenting myself to a representative that was managing chat at the time, I was quickly moved to Amy, who prepared as well as waiting to start my meeting.

My interview began like any other: we introduced ourselves and also had a little bit of a casual welcoming conversation (which made me really feel comfortable). Then it was on to the primary meeting. What was odd was the reality that the conversation was extremely comparable to a face-to-face interview, other than it was through live conversation!

The questions were about my previous experience, why I was looking for the task, how I would certainly manage certain circumstances and also my understanding of The Chat Store and their services.

Amy was wanting to expose my toughness and also weak points to establish whether I might satisfy the high assumptions that they set. She wished to know where I would certainly require a little added training and where I could bring new talents to the team.

Why I desired the placement was additionally really essential naturally. Although much of our team is spread out across the UK, The Chat Shop is certainly a close knit group with big aspirations. Each one people is an indispensable part of providing the outcomes that we provide for customers.

Needs, such as my typing speed, were tested too naturally. Needing to convert multiple site site visitors whilst supplying consumer complete satisfaction implies that you have to assume and kind fast.

Amy additionally gave me the possibility to ask any inquiries that I had, as well as she answered them completely. I was happy and also really hoping that I did well in my real-time conversation interview!

As you have actually probably presumed (by me composing this blog post) I did do well 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 among 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 yet I was also very nervous! Thankfully the telephone meeting was not as terrifying as I when assumed and also it was extra informal than official.

I got inquired about my hobbies, what I like to do in my spare time and a couple of concerns about the Live Chat Representative setting. I additionally had some feedback on my ‘Live Conversation Interview’, which was great to hear.

A lot of the inquiries that Joe asked were about my individuality. Joe claimed that proceeding with everyone and also becoming a part of The Conversation Shop family members was an extremely crucial aspect.

It was a pleasure to talk on the phone to my prospective future bosses and also I hopped on well with them, there was a buzz in the air. At the end of the telephone interview I was provided the position … as well as I accepted with excellent satisfaction, obviously. I was over the moon and I still am!

When I had approved the offer I was emailed the contracts that required to be authorized digitally (exactly how trendy is that), my working hrs, what group I would certainly be 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 about 2 hrs as well as he discussed whatever I required to find out about the “Live Conversation Agent” setting. I ensured to make great deals of notes in my note pad as it is a whole lot to take in.

I was then given the days of when my training would certainly commence (training lasts around 3 weeks and we’re paid throughout the procedure) and various other information I required to understand about the training procedure consisting of exactly what would certainly take place. John was a satisfaction to talk with and also I felt comfy talking to him as he claimed he would be there for any kind of inquiries I may have if I am ever uncertain or stuck.

Regrettably…

I have had a bad spell of disease, which meant I was not able to start my training when prepared. Luckily The Chat Shop are a bunch of remarkable individuals that are patiently waiting on me to be well enough once again. I have never ever known such a comprehending company and I really feel blessed to be employed by them.

Just as I was about to surrender my work search, I came across The Chat Store. I’m excitedly waiting for recovering and also beginning my training. Hopefully I shall be a completely fledged real-time conversation agent soon … see this area, my next blog post will inform you everything about my trip with the training process.
