I’ve always been very happy with Sears’ appliance repair service in the past. No matter what brand or situation, they’ve dealt with it. The service technicians or whatever their title is have always impressed me with the experience and expertise. And they were usually on time, and always called in the morning to tell me where I was in the queue and when to expect them.
Until today. Today I had an appointment to repair our dryer. It was for sometime 8:00 AM to Noon. No show so I called and was told that my message would be passed on to the dispatching department. Uh oh, that’s a bad sign when the person who talks to the customer is not setup to actually correct a problem like this.
I was told they would definitely be there by 2:00 and would call first. 2:00 rolls around, no call, no show. After hanging out at the house waiting for the last 6 hours I have obligations that require I be absent, so I call back and ask to be rescheduled for the first appointment in the morning.
Again I’m told that request will be passed on to the dispatching or routing or whatever department, and that I will receive a call from the technician very soon. Guess what, no call.
Then I’m asked if I am a homeowner and if I would like an in home consultation to look at updating or remodeling my kitchen or bathroom. Great timing for that pitch! (not)
I currently have no idea what to do with this repair, what is happening with it, and don’t know how to reschedule. When I try online I am informed I need to call. When I call….I don’t get a callback to reschedule (and again, I’ll just point out how non-customer-focused it is that the only person who can talk to a customer can’t do something as simple as reschedule an appointment)
