3 . How would you handle a customer with difficult behavior?

People skills are highly valued in every company, and even so much more so in a company that deals with difficult customers occasionally. It is important to show how you can manage difficult personalities.

  • About YourselfLook back on your experience. Have you worked with a difficult or disruptive person? Remember how you diffused the situation and how you turned things around.
    • Do you have certain principles, or methodology, to deal with difficult people?
    • Do you have strong people skills, are you good at conflict resolution?
    • Are you high on emotional intelligence? Can you give an example?
  • About The Company
    • What have you found about the company and its culture?
    • What have you learned about how the employees value each other?
    • How do they treat their customers?
    • Knowing their line of business or industry, what can be some examples of difficult customers?

    Do your research.

  • About The FitA question like this asked in an interview, may be an indication that difficult customers, or other difficult stakeholders, may indeed be something that you will probably encounter in this company, and it is important for the interviewer to know that you will be able to handle this challenge with good grace. If you can give an example of how you handled a difficult person in the past in a situation similar to what this company may require from you, this will strongly increase your chances of showing yourself as a good fit.
  • One methodology for diffusing a difficult situation is called “the triple A” approach:

  • Acknowledge – what the other person is feeling,
  • Apologize – for the way the other person is feeling,
  • Admit – that there was an issue that you are working on to get it resolved.
  • If it is a customer, it would add that extra touch if you added another “A” to your approach by Asking for the customers contact information so you can update them of any progress on their issue.

    Take a quick quiz and check if you’re ready to answer this question at your next job interview:

    BListen carefully to what the customer is saying to really understand their concerns then repeat back to them what you heard to be sure you have it right, before attempting to help them with the problem.

    CTell the customer that he should have known that the sale is final and there is nothing he can do to renegotiate the terms of the deal.

    Now that you have read some of our recommendations, you may wonder: “Ok, so what’s next?

    Good question. Assuming you are indeed qualified and fit for the position you are interviewing for, the best thing you can do is make sure the interviewer sees this fit.

The session was one of the best things to have happened during my job search and interview preparation. Natalie helped me feel calm and confident. She helped me break down the job description and relate it to my experience. After working with Natalie, I received 2 job offers in the same day.

    I used Mr. Simon to prepare for a job interview, and it helped me re-think my responses and gain confidence. Also, the questions were not very far from real life interview questions. In addition, having the opportunity to hear my own answers and read the recommendations on how to respond concisely was really helpful. I enjoyed using Mr. Simon and would use it again!

    Sample answer: “I would find out if they are wanting to trade out or return the item and then take them over to Customer Service.”

    The proper response involves both providing good customer service and adhering to Target policies. Target has specific procedures concerning refunds and exchanges, the department staff members may have the authority to make adjustments themselves and should avoid making promises that may not be in line with company policy.

    Therefore, taking them to Customer Service is the proper course of action.
