Blockbuster Store 12404 Complaint - Blockbuster Poor Service
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- The Blockbuster store I am referring to here is located at: 13011 SW 112th Street, Miami, Florida 33186. 305-388-5562. It is store No. 12404.
I have been a Gold Member from blockbuster and have never had a problem with their service until tonight. I went with my 10 year old son and wife to rent some movies. There were two employees on the night shift at this location, one by with the tag name of "Kay" and another by the name of "Andi".
I took one movie from the shelf in the wall and Andi said to me: "You can't rent that movie", so I politely replied: "Why not? It's on the shelf" and she said to me with an attitude: "Because its not out until tomorrow, can't you read the sign?" (she was referring to a small hand written paper sign with tomorrow's date on it). At this point, the other one "Kay" jumped in saying sarcastically to "Andi", "Looks like we are going to have to make bigger signs for some people".
Astonished, I looked back at "Kay" and said to her: "Please don't give me an attitude, I'm a customer." And she said, "We're not giving you attitude you're the blind one that can't read the sign!". And she turned to Andi and said: "Some people are so dumb, I just can't wait to go home" (it was 10:40pm).
This really offended me and I replied, "Wow, you guys really need to learn about customer service." and I continued browsing what was on the shelves. At this point I felt like walking out of the store and changing to Netflix or something. But then I reasoned that this was not the Brand's fault but rather an employee training/ selection issue.
When it was time to pay, there was no one on the counter. They had me wait about five minutes intentionally and then Andi showed up to process my order with an evil grin. I said to her, "You guys are making a mistake treating me like this. I'm a Blockbuster Gold Member and I've always been a good customer spending lots of money in this store." She replied: "Oooooh a Gold Member, WOW!" I said, "Yes a Gold Member and not only that, I will be complaining with your store manager about your sarcasm" and she said: "Well Mr. Gold Member you have $7 dollars in late fees, and this is how we make our money so you have to pay up before I can rent you any of those movies". I said, "yes, I know and of course I'll pay it, but at any rate this is not how you make your money, but clearly how the company makes it."
Then Andi went on to type in the computer system that I'm a "complete a**hole" for other employees to see when in reality I was the victim of their lack of customer service skills. I have never been called an "a**hole" in my lifetime. And this front line employee goes on to type it in my Blockbuster Receipt as well!
And yes I have the copy of this receipt, with the word "a**hole" typed in and with the blockbuster branding on it! Talk about proof of a customer being mistreated with verbal abuse.
I feel aggrieved with the lack of customer service from this store. I was treated with verbal abuse and sarcasm from two employees in front of my wife and 10 year old son, and have the proof. Three witnesses and a typed blockbuster receipt with the words "complete a**hole" on it.
I'm sure these two employees were probably having a bad day and decided to vent it with me, but why should I as the customer have to put up with this?
If you went to any store and someone put on your receipt "complete a**hole", what would you do?
PS. The CSR No. on my receipt from Andi is 08874. I don't have the other CSR number but she had a tag with the name of "Kay".
