~Ben's review of Best Buy customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Best Buy 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.
~Ben: Typical corporation, make paying customers wait until they cannot stand it anymore. Sub contract every job out that they can and pay everyone as little as they can to make sure that the board gets all the money they "deserve". I have been trying to get in touch with someone to find a delivery window for an item I bought, it has been an hour and still no one is able to tell me when the window is. This will be our last purchase from best buy!
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Best Buy. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Best Buy problem?
~Ben: I'd give them a two 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?
~Ben: I'd give them a one out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Best Buy's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~Ben: For that I would say one out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Best Buy customers?
~Ben: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Best Buy to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~Ben taken from his Best Buy customer service problem that occurred on November 16th, 2017.
