Have you worked in customer service and been so frustrated with how you were treated? Want to know how to be a better customer?

Do you shop somewhere constantly but never take the time to get to know the people who always help you?

I haven’t been working in customer service for a year yet but I find myself wishing that every customer was like that one who made my day. Some days, there isn’t a customer like that.

I find that the best customers are the ones that have been behind the counter or on the other side of the interactions.

Here are five things to pay attention to next time you shop and the best answers for how to be a better customer.

1. Listen to What Employees Ask/tell You

Shopping can be stressful, especially when you are short on time. But contrary to prior belief, the employees are not just there to serve you. There are so many activities going on behind the scenes that you would never know about. Everyone’s time is important and understanding that is an important answer for how to be a better customer.

So when an employee tells you where something is, ask them to clarify again if you didn’t get it the first time. Or ask if they would show you instead of telling you. It makes things easier for both parties.

If an employee asks you if you need help, take a moment and really think about it. Don’t automatically say no because you don’t want to be bothered and then turn around two minutes later needing help.

Employees want to make your experience great and they want to help you. But if you don’t listen to them, it can be frustrating. It’s like you’re not valuing their time or words. Employees are people trying to get through the day, just like you. I think customers can forget that sometimes.
