When I had approved the offer I was emailed the agreements that required to be signed electronically (just how trendy is that), my working hrs, what team I would remain in and all of my log-in information ready for my training.

Not long after this I had a phone call with John– my Team Leader. This call lasted around 2 hours and also he discussed every little thing I needed to know about the “Live Chat Agent” position. I ensured to make great deals of notes in my notebook as it is a great deal to absorb.

I was then offered the dates of when my training would start (training lasts around 3 weeks as well as we’re paid throughout the procedure) and various other information I needed to learn about the training procedure including exactly what would certainly occur. John was an enjoyment to speak with and also I really felt comfortable talking to him as he claimed he would be there for any kind of inquiries I might have if I am ever uncertain or stuck.
