How well do you handle customer complaints?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Handling customer issues is one of my strong points. I am able to maintain a calm demeanor which allows me the opportunity to ask the right questions and I listen to their answers.
2.
When a customer comes to me and has a complaint, I don't sigh and call my manager, I listen to what the customer has to say. I ask them what the problem is an what I can do to fix it and I aplogise to them for whatever the problem was.
3.
I handle customer complaints very well. If the customer has a problem I will try to fix it the best way I can and if I dont know the answer to their question I would use a resource to help me, which would be one of my co-workers.

The customer is always right but sometimes when you explain things they do see it your way otherwise you must except and bite your tongue.

I can usually find a way to make someone who is angry or irritated have a smile on their face by the time our conversation has ended.
12.
I handle customers complaints well. I see them really as chances to improve the company, since it is proven that only about 1 in 10 consumers will complain. So if a customer comes to me with a complaint, there is probably 9 other customers with the same complaint.

I would listen to the customer then ask them what can I do to get better.
14.
I would apologize for any inconvenience and do anything I can top meet their needs.
15.
Pretty well, tell them im sorry they are having that problem and then ask them if I can do anything to help and.

Describe a time when you disliked company rules in your last job?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I've never disliked company rules because you are there to do what the company wants. Now if it is something that would be dishonest or something of that nature then that would be a diffenent story. I would have to go to a superviser that was higer than the person telling me .
2.
This is my first job. However, I would think that a compny must have good reasons to enforce rules for their employees that are in the best interest of their customers. Sometimes we don't alwasy like rules - but we should obey them.
3.
You Deal With It, And Go On.

Writing what the patient said even if spelling and english is wrong.

A time I disliked company rules was when I was treated differently from the management than other coworkers at my job. I was never given a raise as a night time employee at ABM Janitorial and not much advancement opportunities was given to me. I never disliked the rules it was just the huge workload they put on us and I felt to quit at the time.
7.
Never disliked every company has rules to keep people safe.
8.
This is my first real job, but I usually always follow rules because they are there for a reason, to keep people safe and on track.

I really like my current job and company is small and the rules are all fine for me.
10.
I have never disliked company rules, they are there for a reason.
11.
I worked with a student that had autism. Because of the type of behavioral therapy he had, we were not allowed to greet him when he came in to session. I felt that this alienated the child, but a rule is a rule and he is not my child, and I am not a therapist. There were probably reasons I did not know about for this, and so I obeyed the rule.
12.
Company rules are there for a reason. You follow them and adapt to them as a good employee.
13.
I try to follow rules as much as possible. There was a time that I needed to have lesson plans completed before Monday morning, in my opinion I thought my position was more intricate. I asked for a modified expectation for planning, but was not offered that. The company policy was to have those plans defined and turned into the principal.
14.
The only time I ever saw a flaw in company policy was when I worked with my father on a manufacturing line and they required him to wear a hairnet even though he was bald. Seemed silly to me, but I understand the neccesity of the company to apply their rules equally to all employees.
15.
There was not a specific time where I disliked company rules,

User-Submitted Answers
1.
I was a department manager for several years, I have always tried to treat each person with respect. Once you have a chance to work with each person and find out what their strengths and weaknesses are you can build from that and place people where they can help the most. I always look for the best in each employee. I have several employees that I continue to be friends outside of the work environment. One thing I like to do it be out on the line with them not just dictate tasks. I want to show them that I do not expect them to do anything that I would not do myself. Each person has something to offer the team and you need to work with each person to find it. The outcome has been good in most circumstances as no one is treated like an outsider.
