Being asked to provide a personal example of when you have given excellent customer service is usually a question that will be received when applying for a job which is available in retail, or more generally, the service industry. The question is designed to examine the skills of the candidate, their relevancy for the position, and any previous experience.

If an applicant is unable to answer this question but has demonstrated previous industry experience, they may be proving that they are unsuitable for the industry. If, however, they have no previous experience, it might be better to outline this and cite an example of when they believe that they have received good customer service.

The company asking the question is using it to whittle down application forms into those that are more relevant and those who they don't think would be a good fit for the position. This means that they won't waste their time interviewing people who will not give good customer service, and will misrepresent their store or brand.

A good answer will reference an extreme case of past customer service, not an ordinary event, but when a customer was particularly difficult to handle, and demonstrate how the server both pacified them, and won around their way of thinking so that they left with a changed attitude, and a positive view of the store. If you have more than one story to demonstrate your experience, try and use the one that is most relevant to the company that you have applied for, e.g. Dealing with a customer on the phone for a call-centre, or in a shop for a shop. Also, try to avoid being negative about the customer, as this is usually a sign of a bad employee; even if you think they were in the wrong, it is your job to remain calm.

Hey. Often we think about how to choose a courier service for the delivery of various things bought in an online store. Many people think that all services are the same, so they’re not too careful about the choice. The quality of delivery directly determines how quickly your order arrives. I recommend choosing the services of a company that can offer low prices and quality service such as this delivery service

I ordered some business cards the other day from a printer I know. I told him I was not in a hurry for them and if it took a week or so that would be okay. The next day I arrived at my desk and found the entire box of business cards, printed and packaged and ready to use. I was very impressed!
