~Toastie's review of Apple customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Apple 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.
~Toastie: Everyone raves about Apple Store Geniuses. Well, when your genius suddenly goes to lunch, and you're no longer in the queue, you can be left adrift for two hours, because no one has time to help you. Three broken iPhones in a span of * days. Two hours of **** at Apple store. The manager helped only in dragging the lunch-break guy back up front. No comp for lousy service. Switching to CREDO this week. Done with Apple.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Apple. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Apple problem?
~Toastie: I'd give them a four 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?
~Toastie: I'd give them a three out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Apple's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~Toastie: For that I would say two out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Apple customers?
~Toastie: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Apple to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~Toastie taken from his Apple customer service problem that occurred on October 25th, 2017.
