What to Expect During Training:
You will learn to navigate our system, call procedures, and how to complete calls in a timely fashion. Length of training varies by campaign, on average 2 to 4 days. The instructor led training is in a virtual classroom environment such as GoToMeeting or Join.me.
In the Instructor led training you will be participating in a real-time virtual classroom with a set schedule. You will participate with others and meet your peers, use the system, take practice calls, learn from your own experiences and those of your classmates. You will see what they are doing and saying and they will do the same as you learn through role-play. There are also campaigns where you may have access to additional training in the form of computer based training, which is self-paced individualized training. There will be daily quizzes where a minimum passing score will be required in order to progress to the next level.
Do not expect to be an expert immediately, on average proficiency takes between 30 to 45 days, though you will continue to learn on the job.
You may work from home but you are never alone. Teams are supported through mentoring and personal coaching.
