The best way to avoid a nasty customer service response from a retailer is to be patient.
And patience is key.
Here are a few things you should know about responding to rude customers.
If you’re going to get mad at someone, you better act fast.
In the past, the customer service reps at Nordstrom’s New York store got upset when customers complained about the quality of the products they ordered.
The company eventually apologized for the situation and agreed to provide the customers with an extended refund.
But the customer support team wasn’t able to offer a satisfactory explanation for the response.
They didn’t offer a complete list of what was wrong with the product, nor did they offer a replacement or a refund.
That meant the customer was left frustrated and angry.
When Nordstrom told the customer to try to speak to another customer service representative, the angry customer turned to the staff member and asked for a new product.
But that person was not helpful.
After that, the customers complaints escalated.
The manager asked the customer about his concerns about the new product and whether it was the same as the one they had received before.
This person didn’t respond.
The customer also asked the manager to try again.
The team manager responded that the new items were identical to the ones they had ordered before, but that they had not received any replacement or refund.
The angry customer continued to make his requests, but the team manager said that they would not get into further discussion.
The Nordstrom manager then asked the angry customers to leave.
She did so by yelling at them and telling them that she was in charge.
When the manager heard the words “I am your boss,” she walked off.
The enraged customer was then told to leave the store.
Instead of asking for help, the manager continued to berate the customer, calling him a “f***ing bitch” and “bitch” in a condescending tone.
She was also heard yelling at the customer and saying, “You are a f***ing f***in bitch.”
The manager then walked back inside the store, walked over to the customer’s car, and drove away.
The next day, the team sent the angry and frustrated customer a letter.
The letter said that the company had made a mistake, but it was still sorry and would offer a full refund.
When a customer called back the next day to apologize, the management team did not apologize either.
The employees also didn’t provide the customer with a replacement for the defective product.
Instead, the company made the mistake of not acknowledging the customer complaints or apologizing for the lack of communication.
Even if you’re a customer service rep, you should be aware of what you can and can’t say to customers.
If you have to ask a customer for a replacement item, it’s usually better to just ignore them.
It might make you look like a jerk.
It also makes the customer feel uncomfortable and uncomfortable, and might cause them to give up.
But if you can be polite and just ask the customer for help without having to say anything rude, it may make the customer happier.
So, before you get mad and yell, ask your team for an explanation.
If they’re unable to provide an explanation, take their feedback and try to make changes.
If the customer doesn’t like the way you’re acting, maybe you should try another approach.
If your team isn’t listening to the angry or frustrated customer, they might be willing to offer you a discount.
