6) How would you deal with an upset customer?

First, I would find out what is wrong with the customer.

  • If the customer cannot find what they are looking for, I would walk them over to where the product is located and not simply point to where the product is.
  • If it is the product that they are upset with, I would see if the customer can exchange or replace it and redirect the customer to the customer service section of Target.  Tip: learn Targets Return Policy as it may help you answer this question.

Tip:  You should have a look at Target’s return policy.   Studying the return policy may help you answer this question.
