I had been looking for a work functioning from home for a while as well as was about to quit. A lot of ‘function from home’ jobs that you find on the internet appear to be some form of pyramid or ‘begin your very own business’ system. Paying a signing up with cost or acquiring their items for you to sell on? No thanks!

Eventually I made a decision to have one more little appearance and encountered The Conversation Shop. I saw the “Live Conversation Representative” work on their occupations page as well as, after reviewing the summary, a large wave of joy came over me. Not only did I suit their needs to a tee (careful learner with an investigative mind, solid ability to multi-task, high levels of organisation applying for social media job as well as a keying rate above 80 words per min), it likewise seemed like a task that I would really enjoy to do!

I applied straight away! I patiently waited for a reply however, to my shock, I had not been waiting long at all.

Amy, a Team Supervisor at The Conversation Store, emailed me as well as offered me a ‘Live Chat Interview’; complying with on from the first application concerns, this is the initial stage of the employment procedure.

I was rather excited as I had actually never experienced an interview in this way before. Around 3 o’clock one afternoon, it was time for my meeting via The Conversation Store’s web site. I opened my browser, went to The Chat Store homepage as well as merely clicked the live conversation tab. I had actually reached my interview.

After presenting myself to an agent that was managing conversation at the time, I was quickly transferred to Amy, that was ready and waiting to begin my interview.

My meeting started like any other: we presented ourselves as well as had a little bit of a casual inviting chat (which made me really feel at ease). After that it was on to the primary interview. What was unusual was the reality that the conversation was really similar to an in person interview, except it was through live chat!

The inquiries were about my previous experience, why I was obtaining the work, how I would certainly deal with particular scenarios as well as my knowledge of The Conversation Shop as well as their solutions.

Amy was wanting to reveal my strengths and weaknesses to identify whether I might satisfy the high expectations that they set. She would like to know where I would certainly need a little additional training and also where I could bring new talents to the team.

Why I desired the placement was also really important certainly. Although much of our team is spread throughout the UK, The Chat Shop is certainly a close weaved team with big passions. Every one of us is an integral part of supplying the results that we provide for clients.

Needs, such as my keying speed, were tested too obviously. Having to convert numerous web site site visitors whilst providing customer complete satisfaction suggests that you have to think and also kind fast.

Amy likewise offered me the possibility to ask any kind of concerns that I had, and she addressed them extensively. I mored than happy and really hoping that I did well in my live chat meeting!

As you’ve probably thought (by me writing this blog post) I did do well in my first interview for the online conversation task. I was invited to the following stage of the application procedure– a telephone interview with Amy and among The Conversation Store’s Co-Founders, Joe.

This is the last stage of their recruitment procedure and also I was proud that I had actually got this much but I was additionally really worried! Thankfully the telephone meeting was not as terrifying as I as soon as thought and it was much more informal than official.

I obtained asked about my hobbies, what I like to do in my leisure and a couple of concerns about the Live Chat Representative position. I also had some comments on my ‘Live Chat Interview’, which was terrific to hear.

A great deal of the questions that Joe asked had to do with my personality. Joe said that moving on with everybody and ending up being a part of The Conversation Shop family was a really vital factor.

It was an enjoyment to talk on the phone to my potential future managers and also I hopped 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 fantastic satisfaction, obviously. I mored than the moon as well as I still am!

As soon as I had approved the offer I was emailed the agreements that needed to be authorized electronically (exactly how trendy is that), my functioning hours, what group I would be in and all of my log-in details prepared for my training.

Not long after this I had a telephone call with John– my Group Leader. This call lasted about 2 hrs and also he described every little thing I required to know about the “Live Conversation Representative” setting. I made certain to make lots of notes in my notebook as it is a lot to take in.

I was after that given the dates of when my training would certainly start (training lasts around 3 weeks and we’re paid throughout the procedure) and also other details I needed to understand about the training process consisting of specifically what would certainly take place. John was a pleasure to talk to and also I really felt comfy talking to him as he claimed he would certainly be there for any questions I may have if I am ever not sure or stuck.


I have had a negative spell of illness, which meant I was not able to begin my training when set up. Luckily The Chat Store are a number of wonderful people that are patiently waiting on me to be well enough again. I have actually never ever recognized such an understanding business as well as I really feel blessed to be utilized by them.

Just as I will give up my job search, I came across The Chat Store. I’m excitedly waiting for getting well and also starting my training. Ideally I will be a fully fledged online chat agent quickly … see this area, my following article will certainly inform you all about my journey with the training procedure.
