Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond for customer service?
Advice
Talking about a time when you calmed an upset customer can be a great example for this question. Be ready to talk about the time you went above and beyond with handling a customer complaint. Explain how you personally listened to every word the customer had to say. Next, describe how you apologized to the customer with a calm voice and sincere heart. Finally, be sure to tell the interviewer what solution you offered the customer. Perhaps you did not charge them for a meal if it was in a restaurant. Maybe you offered a new dish for them to try. Be sure to close with how happy the customer was when they left! Or, you may approach the question with something you have done during the normal course of the day to go above and beyond for your customers. For example, if you work at a grocery store, you might share that you walk the customers out to their car when customer levels allow and assist them with loading the groceries into their car.

I had todeal with a difficult client that was very demandng, and when we identified a problem, I was able to orgainze a system application in a way that made it easier to understand for the customers, and stayed late many nights working on this application. As an end result it was easy for customers to use and cleared up a 4 month backlog.

I have called other stores for customers to see if they carried something we were out of and then gave them the number and directions on how to get there.

I was walking to the back room for my break when a customer stopped me to ask for a toy that he had been searching for. I don't work in the toys department, so I didn't want to misguide the customer in anyway. So I called for an associate in the department to come in. All the associates in that department called in sick that day. I went back to the customer, and personally searched for the toy he was looking for. After searching I still did not find anything, so I checked the inventory scanner. Turns out we had a new shipment that arrived that morning. So I requested the customer to wait, while I checked our inventory. The toy was actually their, ready to put on the shelves. So I brought the toy to the customer, and handed it to the child and he was so excited it actually made my day knowing how happy he was. His father was also, very satisfied. I didn't realize but the customer actually noted my name, and told a manager about his customer service experience.

The time that I can recall going above and beyond for customer service is when I saw a lovely couple sitting at a table for about 7 minuets. I had become their server for the evening. I made sure that they were well taken care of.

A little while back a woman came into the store and purchased a toilet. She had done a phone order with us, we pulled it and had it brought to the front for her. She was a sweet lady. She returned the following day in panic with the toilet because when her installer had opened the box half of the toilet pieces were missing. She was almost in tears because her installer was charging her extra for having to wait around for her to fix the issue with the toilet. Seeing how distressed she was, I brought the situation up to the ASM on duty and asked if there was anything we could do for her since it was the manufacturer at fault and not her. He said I made a good call and gave the woman a good discount off for her trouble. She had tears of joy and thanked me and the ASM for our awesome service.

I took a call from a dissatisfied customer regarding confusion on an appliance delivery. I took the time to get all of their details, gave them my name and assured them I would call them back when I got it cleared up. I always call back and update out customer with a resolution.

Robert called over to the hardware desk and said there was a customer coming over with a bar stool that he needs fixed. So Don and I found the correct screws fixed it and made sure all of the screws were tightened. It was time to clock out when we were done and when I went by the cashier they handed me the bag of extra screws as they had forgotten them. So I went out and found them.
