The Fitness Factory The customer service in the Fitness Factory is not as good as it should be because: o The customer service in the fitness factory has no real written policy for customer service they say they use common sense adherence (at discretion) to customer needs I think they are very good they have all the relevant customer needs sort out. o They maybe good but they need some sort of written policy that the staff can read and understand how to deal with any problems, this will be helpful because then all the staff have the same way of dealing with situations. o They sometimes have suggestion boxes they should have these always. o The fitness factory has not got any questionnaires this is probably the only bad thing they have. o And I was double checking on the questions with the other group doing fitness factory and everything was the same except for the one thing they told me they dot have questionnaires and they had answered the other group they always use questionnaires.

So gym industries do bring in quite a lot. o The fitness factory has a good understanding of customer services, and seem to treat their customers very well they deal with all types of complaints whether its by phone, letter or face-to-face. o They're staff are polite, calm and aim to provide a comfortable enjoyable workplace this is also and most importantly shown to their customers. ...read more.
