Customer Service Training TIps

What do you think We can do to Improve?

When I returned a car I’d rented the attendant asked about the rental. “Fine,” I lied. Actually, when I rented the car I waited at the counter while the staff ignored me to deal with phone customers. It wasn’t worth explaining – I just figured that next time I’d rent elsewhere. Then he asked a magical question, “What do you think we could do to improve?” That question created several outcomes: I expressed my frustration, he apologized, reduced my bill, said they’d fix the problem, and – I’ll rent there again. Not bad for one question.
