Very Poor Customer Service

I think the employees are not happy at their jobs because they have zero customer service skills. When I asked to speak with a manager, the response I received was "We don't have any managers right now, just supervisors." Huh?!?!?! In my experience, when someone asks to speak with a manager, they want to speak with anyone with more authority than the customer service person who answered the phone. Don't quibble about titles.

When I am complaining, don't ask "How is this our fault?", ask "How can I help to make this right?" Don't tell me: "you can either come in or go to our website and complete dispute forms." Tell me: "let's find out where the problem is" or "let me look into this and give you a call back." Yes, the customer isn't always right, but with the right customer service attitude, you will keep your members instead of shoving them out the door/off the phone!
