~Kay's review of Sherwin-Williams customer service
GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Sherwin-Williams 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.
~Kay: This situation has happened to me now several times over the past five years. I go up to the counter--wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...without getting any greeting or acknowledgement. Another customer comes in, goes to the counter and an employee comes out from the back with "can I ring you up?" I interjected that several of us had been waiting for quite some time. He responded with "Well do you mind if I ring her up?" Hmmmm... what choice do I have without sounding like a jerk? Another employee came out and started talking to another customer who had just recently come to the counter so I left. Isn't there a basic "cue" order that employees should be following? Customers should not be expected to monitor this.
