Lowe's - Online Pickup Order - Lost, After Waiting an Hour
Customer Service Manager - Complaint
SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA -- I ordered one piece of deck trim that wasn't on the floor. And after getting a call that it was in, I returned their call to tell them that I would be by after work the next day.
So, I get there at about 6pm, and go to customer service. It's not too busy and I get helped quickly. So, I wander around the store - hardware to determine if I need special nails. I wander back to customer service, and I don't see the trim piece there. I wander over to light bulbs, trying to justify the cost of LED bulbs. Back again but still no trim. It's been about 20 minutes and she calls again, talks on the phone, and says it should be here shortly. Another 10 minutes pass, and my customer service person is going to lunch. But she did tell me that this other person would continue to help me. I again provide the details of my order, and she makes some calls. Another 15 minutes pass, and I ask what's happening. She says she doesn't know but another customer service person will walk over to that area.
After 15 minutes, she doesn't reappear, so I ask to see a manager. In a couple of minutes, he walks up and says,"We've lost it but someone had seen it yesterday." So I say,"it takes one hour for you to tell me that you've lost it?" And he, in a condescending tone, says,"we'll, if you'd let me finish..." Now, this was after I asked to see him, not him finding an issue, then coming to explain it to me. He then offered me some options, of which I picked "Deliver it when you find it."
Very frustrating that they could lose a special order, and then to be treated like a 12 year in a temper tantrum just made it even worse.
