~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent's review of Amtrak customer service
GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Amtrak customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent: It takes WAY toooooo long to actually speak to a person. Worst service yet. I've recently moved and so have spoken to lots of customer service departments and Amtrak is by far the worst. Their automated agent concept is awful. People want to ask one simple question and get off the phone, not go through menu after menu after menu. This is horrible.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Amtrak. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Amtrak problem?
~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent: I'd give them a five out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent: I'd give them a four out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Amtrak's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent: For that I would say five out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Amtrak customers?
~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Amtrak to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~loveamtrakbuthatautomatedagent taken from his Amtrak customer service problem that occurred on November 22nd, 2017.
