Anyone who has ever cut their teeth in the service industry has heard the expression “The customer is always right”. I am not a big fan of this as I believe it places the wait staff in a very difficult position. Take a simple example, a customer calls over a manager and says, “The waiter got my order wrong!” Now the waiter, having been well trained, took the trouble to write down the order and even read it back to the customer. How do you engage with the customer when you have been told “the customer is always right”? Does this mean “the staff member is always wrong”?

With 5 star rating service level experience, in this training program Marven will strategically train your managers on customer complaint management and how to effectively deal with difficult customers.
