Top Answer
I had to work with someone who made it their goal everyday to find conflict with someone. I found the best method to deal with it was not to engage in the behavior with them, but rather to focus on what I needed to do to do my job each day... I. E. Check on customer orders, follow up on quotes, helping customers in the store to create new sales, keep the department in good order.

A customer was promised items through the lowes interiors project that was never translated into the file and purchase orders. Consequently the customer was never charged for the items. However, these wee critical items needed to finish the clients kitchen and allow them to fully operate in the kitchen. I investigated the. Availability of the items and did three things: First, I enlisted the rep for the cabinets and persuaded him to provide the cabinet part that was missing for free. He also expedited the item, but it would not arrive for 8. Days. Second, I contact the manufacturer directly and ordered additional decorative items and created a PO that would be express shipped to the store within 4 business days. Third,I researched tha availability of in store items needed and found we did not. Have enough n hand. I found another lowes. Store with the items and had them ICB for pick the next day. The next day I relieved the ICB parts from receiving, packaged and labeled the. I sent an email to installed sale, fellow designer and my manager outlining what was needed and the steps I took to remedy the situation. The solutindid require the assistance of installed sales to coordinate with the installer the arrival of all materials and when the installer would be available. I also investigated the possibility of the installer giving us measurements of the cabinet part needed and calling me to get the part cut at the store. I could easily have the material cut, and finished no delivered to the clients home, well within the hour. I contacted e client while the final installation was going on and followed up with them to ensure that everything had been completed and met her needs. I apologized for the second installation date and acknowledged it was an intrusion o. Their time. I emphasized how much we enjoyed working with her, appreciatd her patience, and if she has any questions or needs any further assistance to please callee. I thanked her for working with us and ow much I enjoyed working with her.

I try to do that everyday. I never let a customer leave without making sure they have everything they need as well as know how to install it and/or that we can install it for them. I had a customer that I had worked with in the past and had not seen her in quite awhile come into our store asking questions about the carpet choices she made at another lowes. I found out that she had a fire in her home and her contractor chose which lowes they would use. Regardless that she was not buying the product from us I felt I had a responsibility to her to make sure she knew what she was buying was what would work for her family. I quickly realized that something was wrong because there was not only the wrong carpet colors and choices but there was more carpet than she needed as well. I proceeded to talk with one of our commercial specialists and the flooring department for the other store to get to the bottom of the situation. After several weeks and conversations with all the parties involved we were able to get her measured properly, straighten out the order, and make her feel like someone was actually looking out for her and her family.

I had a customer come up to customer service on a Sunday night at 757p when our closing was 8p. He needed to apply for a lowes credit card and then pay for the items he was purchasing. He had already been approved for a lowes credit card online so he had the paperwork to show me. I go on the computer and found his confirmation number for the approval on the credit card. I then had to complete the rest of the application and submit it. He was approved then temporary credit card printed. Thanks to a fellow associate she had invoiced most of his items so all I had to do when scan around 5 items to add to his order. I processed the amount and ran the credit card. Due to the card being new I had to contact the credit center for them to approve the large amount his was buying, which was like 2500 dollars roughly. After I explained to the credit center they needed to speak to him personally. After speaking with the customer I was told to go ahead and try running the card again. I did and the sale went through. The customer was very pleased he thanked me over and over. When it comes to helping a customer out it does not matter what time it may be because the customer always comes first.

Exceptionally well. I have an enormous amount of patience. And good listening skills. I will give summarize what the customer has told me to be sure I completely understand the problem. I will wait to see if there is additional information they need to share or the customer confirms that I fully understand the problem I will explain the steps needed to resolve the problem and make the customer whole For example: a DIY is installing the kitchen cabinets and they believe a cabinet is defective I offer options, ensure they have installation inductions from the manufacturer, reorder a cabinet on express shipment to arrive with 5 business days, fund/ order the cabinet in a temp account . Arrange to have the defective cabinet returned to the store by the client, installer or arrange an MR. After the solutions are offered and the client accepts one of them, I process the changes/ orders confirm any new orders to the client and follow up after the delivery of the product with the client to ensure that they are now 100 percent satisfied. I will also ask if they have had any other issues during the process they wish to share with me that I may use as a way to avoid or lessen any potential problems for customers in. The future? I want the client to feel that we are true partners in their projects and are here with expert advice to help them at anytime.

He then said as he was walking out of ISLG that he saw like 15 associates just standing around doing nothing. He wanted me to let my manager know about this and to fix the problem. I said I am sorry for the inconvenience on you not having any assistance. Did you find the right oil for your equipment?

My ability to connect with a customer and make them feel comfortable. If a customer isnt comfortable with the associate and doesnt feel they have strong knowledge then they are less likely to want to purchase. I have built some strong relationships with some of the contractors that come in and I feel that is very important and keep their loyalty to lowes.

When I first took the position of department manager, I found that my team felt neglected by previous management and had a negative outlook for the goal of the department. I found that setting the example of how to be is one way to turn that around... Also, I talked to the employees to see what was making them feel that way, and it was lack of recognition. I found that by recognizing even small accomplishments, they would do more to get more recognition. The key to being a good leader is knowing your people, and finding what motivates them. You have to show them their role is on the team, and how their achievements contribute to that goal.

At one time I was a substitute teacher. I had to lead many students on a daily basis. The students I taught were not from affluent families all the time . Many had large challenges. I needed to motivate them to learn, to be well behaved, and to enjoy the process. I had 30 days for each class I taught long term. I had a class that no other substitute would take. Kids who pushed the limit. I earned their respet, got them from d and fs on simple spelling test to a and cs. From a class that no one wanted to a class a teacher was proud of. I went back to watch them graduate to middle school I was so proud of these kids.

When tasked with a project I want the project to be completed with high standards. Unfortunately, time does not always allow for as much time to be given as I would like. Therefore in order to complete a project effectivly and correct, I use time management skills to determine what is most important to the project and what is expected and task myself with those elements.
