Tell me about a time when you gave excellent customer service.
Before you give an example, think about what excellent customer service means to you. Does it mean making the customer happy? What skills are required?
Answer examples
"A customer called to make a reservation for a large group. They were visually impaired and there were two small children in the group. I wanted to take extra special care to provide for their needs, so I informed the server and made notes in the reservation. When the group came in, I was warm and friendly. I made sure they were taken care of."
