Introduction

Experience as A Customer Service Agent. This is a customer-based assignment, and I have been asked to write a report outlining my personal experience as a customer service agent.

Many sales assistants had complained that the woman was blaming them for lifting her handbag, and then I......... appeared on the scene! I took the woman to the customer service desk so to get a formal statement from her, but also to diffuse the situation and not make a scene in front of the existing customers within the store. I had first asked the woman her name. She was called Claire. I asked where she had left the handbag and she claims to have left it in the Menswear department. ...read more.

Conclusion

The woman described the handbag as; a grey weaved bag, with two compartments and a zip fastener and a black shoulder strap. The description matched the handbag, and Claire was ever so polite, embarrassed but polite, and she couldn't stop thanking us.
