How Not To Treat Your Customers (And Why)


Most of us have experienced a time where a company treated us poorly enough that they lost what would have been a valued customer. My cousin recently ran into this problem with 24 Hour Fitness (@24hourfitness). It gives a perfect example of how losing one customer due to bad customer relations results in a ripple effect and damages your company. I’ve placed red arrows beside the comments that show significant reactions because of my cousin’s initial post on Facebook.

  1. I completely agree, this is a horrible example of how to treat customers! However, I have worked for a corporation for over 6 years, and I understand that from a workers point-of-view, there are rules set by the corporation that cannot be altered for one customer. Their rationale is probably “he signed the agreement in the beginning, and this was a rule already laid out for him.” Super sucky, but that’s how huge corporations work!
