It started when I went into a Rogers store for help with resetting a phone and changing the SIM card. I had great service. Knowing my plan was expired and the pricing had been slowly creeping up the employee checked my account. That’s when I learned I was overpaying and could have the same service for $20 less per month ($35 no data standard price offered to anyone). I phoned the Loyalty department since I’ve been a customer for 27 years. They offered me the same standard $35 plan (no data that is offered to everyone). After a few minutes on hold he came back and would include 1 Gig data for $37.50. But, he tried convincing me to purchase a much higher data plan. That doesn’t sound like much of a deal for 27 years of loyalty. With no other options, I ended that call. After almost a week I decided to try again and hoped I could speak to someone with more customer experience ( I was wrong ).
It took being transferred twice to get to the Retention department in Brampton, Ontario. This woman offered me 2 Gigs data for $37.50 (better than the first phone call), then 4 Gigs $41.50, or 6 Gigs $45. All of which she made it sound like she worked hard to arrange these deals even though we were on the phone for forty five minutes and I was made to hold multiple times. I told her the store had already offered me 25 Gigs for $45. Why can the store offer me so much more that the Loyalty or Retention departments? Was it because I was looking at the same computer screen with the employee and saw for myself what the deals are?
Why couldn’t she offer me something in between? Such as halfway between $35-$45 and halfway between 0-25 Gigs.
Also, I have a suggestion: that employees working from home should not eat while on the phone with a customer (even if you are doing it quietly).
