Top 5 Tips to Getting an Awful Customer Service or Never Do If You Want a Good Experience
Hey guys, this is my first blog and I hope I wont be judged too hard. I have worked in a call center for years and I have discovered that customer agents are not always as respected and valued for the job they do. I hope this tiny blog will educate people that if you want a good customer service service, manners cost nothing to you.Some of the things are of course exaggerated but it is just for entertainment purposes. Sometimes you can get an agent who is not as competent or is not very nice and therefore apologies for the experience wherever you've had this.There are also some amazing customers. I just wanted to raise awareness for people who think that what I have written below will help you in any way, awareness that if you want good customer service, manners cost nothing and we are all people, not robots as some tend to refer to us. We want to help you! I hope my fellow co-workers find it entertaining and be able to have a little bit of a laugh in the daily job. I am with you guys! You are all superstars!
