So once you’ve gotten your job, it’s pretty important to keep it. One of the most important ways to keep your job is to maintain good customer service. In most jobs, the customer is the most important person. Sometimes dealing with the customer can be easy, but sometimes they can be more challenging to deal with.
The one thing you have to do with every customer is show respect. There are many important things to take into factor when showing customers respect. For one, you should always be cognisant of the type of language you are using when speaking to them. Make sure that you speak formally. Using terms like “Ma’am” and “Sir” when referring to the customer is very important. In addition, avoid using swear words or other vulgar language with customers. You should speak to them like you would speak to your grandparents; with respect and kindly.
Even when a customer is being rude, you have to remember that the customer always comes first in every situation. This is not necessarily an easy rule to follow, but it is a very important one. If a customer is becoming loud or upset, you should try to calm them down or figure out why they are upset. You should then work with them to solve the problem. Let them explain why they are upset and then offer solutions. Depending on what job you have these solutions can vary from offering a discount to letting them speak with the manager.
At the end of the day, you just have to deal with customers in the most respectful and kind way you can. While it can make your day a little more stressful and unenjoyable, it’ll help you keep your job. Think of it like this, they’re the most difficult part of your day while the rest of your work and the pay you get makes up for it in the long run.
