To Whom It May Concern:

This is a formal complaint of our experience with the RIU Palace Paradise Island.
We checked into the RIU Palace Paradise Island on Thursday, December 10th, 2009 at approximately 3:00 PM. Upon check-in we were greeted by Front Desk staff member, Felicity, where she assigned us RM 804. Before we got into the elevator to go to our room, she stopped us and said she needed to change our room. After a few minutes we were then changed to RM 1202. Upon arrival to the room we were greeted by construction workers who were making repairs to the room, we also found another guest’s belongings residing in the room. While in transit back to the front desk, we were met by Felicity again, who said she changed our room to RM 817, and handed us another set of keys. When we reached to the 8th floor, we were greeted by a plethora of construction workers on the floor, in which we had to maneuver our way through and around them to get to our room. Upon arrival to our room, the first light to enter the room did not work, there were exposed electrical outlets, some questionable liquid white substance on the dresser where the TV sits, also various holes in the wall, in addition to the sprinkler being exposed, and none of the lights working in the room. We went back to the front desk to make a complaint, and they transferred us to RM 902. After retrieving our luggage from RM 817 and carrying it to RM 902, we found the door open, and were greeted once again by construction workers, only this time, not only were they making repairs outside of our room but they were making repairs inside our room. We waited outside of the room patiently until they were complete. After finally entering the room, there was dust everywhere from the dresser to the bed to the floor. There was a potent smell of wood stain that consumed the entire room, and gave me an instant headache and...

...Dear Mr. Georgiev, I am writing to complain about the learning plan of the major Linguistics with IT. We believe the lectures are not properly organized. We have lectures only three days a week. On the one hand, it is beneficial because we have two days off. On the other though, we study from 7:30 AM to 19:30 PM these three days and it is very exhausting. On our final exam in English we are supposed to make a dictation but, as a matter of fact, nobody told us how to do that. The lectures are not enough and our lecturers don’t have the time to teach us. Last semester the “Translation” subject was twice a week. This semester, however, it is once a week which is not nearly as enough as it should be. All in all, it is expected that we become translators. Furthermore, all the lectures in German are in one day. What happens is that at the end of the lecture we can no longer concentrate as we have studied so many things that we don’t have the strength to continue. What is more, there are times in which we have just about 15 min to get from the one building of the university to the other. It wouldn’t be a problem, if the lecturers were more conscientious. We strongly believe that this learning plan is overwhelming and inaccurate. We hope you would consider undertaking some actions about these issues. I look forward to hearing from you by return. Yours sincerely, Hristiana...

Letter of Complaint.

...Letter of complaint. A letter of complaint is usually written as a follow-up to a verbal conversation to someone who has not responded to the complaint. It is used to keep a written record of your complaint. In addition, more than one person might be the recipient of the letter. For example if you are dealing with a situation where you had unsatisfactory car repairs done on your car by a franchise dealership, you might write to the franchisee AND to the Head Office. Letters of request or invitation are generally considered to be a positive letter. The recipient will receive the information in a positive fashion. A letter of complaint is usually considered to be a negative letter. The recipient might receive the information in a negative fashion. Therefore, it is important that you choose positive language to help buffer the impact. Here are some suggestions for writing a complaint. 1.- explain the problem in the first sentences. 2.- remember that you are unhappy with the company, not the reader. 3.- keep the tone professional, not informal. Do not use a lot of emotional words (e.g. terrible, the worst). 4.- you may want to include a positive sentence about the company or your previous experience with the product. 5. Be specific about what action you are requesting. 6.- if this is a very serious complaint, explain what additional action you will take if the company does not take care of the problem. The language of complaints. It is not possible......

A Complaint Is a Gift

...Introduction A Gift is a Complaint is a book that will challenge you to rethink complaints, complainers, and your approach on handling, what is a usually, an unpleasant situation. Complaints, as stated in the book, are ”statements about expectations that have not been met. They are also, and perhaps more importantly, opportunities for an organization to reconnect with customers by fixing a service or product breakdown,” (Moller & Barlow, 2008, p. 22). The surface message of the customer doing the complaining often comes across as abrasive and as an attack, but really the customer is willingly giving the company an opportunity to respond and fix the problem, or more appropriately put, giving the company the gift of a second chance. The authors of the book have redefined complaints as gifts, but to do so those receiving the complaint must learn to separate the gift from the medium, the complaint from the complainer. Being able to separate yourself from the emotion of being blamed is most important to being able to successfully handle all complaints. In other words, we need to stop taking things so personally and learn to portray confidence and consideration. This means gaining empathy for the disappointed and frustrated customer, all a while moving forward as a company. The very fact that the person is showing interest in the product/service and making an effort to complain signifies some form of commitment to the company. A Complaint Is a Gift reverses......

To begin the description of my unpleasant experience I would like to express my disappointment in the customer service and quality of food. On 1st of October 2015, around 21:30 I came to this particular restaurant in Merķeļa Street 1. It was surprisingly empty and the last thing I would say about the particular situation that it was crowded. I and my friends waited for more than 40 minutes to get our food due to some technical problems as we were told. However in the same time several people who got in to the restaurant after us collected their food before us. Second unpleasant experience was the attitude from people who worked there. While we were waiting for the food one of the girls completely ignored our request to check if everything was fine with our order. And the young man was even ruder by telling us to, and I quote: ‘’**** off with our questions. When the food will be ready, you will get it!’’. And once we got the food he just dropped it on the counter and ignored us. And the most unpleasant part was the food. It looked funny; it was overcooked and tasted stale. I have never eaten something that bad! I look forward to your replay and solution to this very unpleasant situation. I am not asking that......

Baggage Complaints

...Case 2 - Baggage Complaints: Descriptive Statistics and Time Series Plots Baggage Complaints: Descriptive Statistics and Time Series Plots Background Anyone who travels by air knows that occasional problems are inevitable. Flights can be delayed or cancelled due to weather conditions, mechanical problems, or labor strikes, and baggage can be lost, delayed, damaged, or pilfered. Given that many airlines are now charging for bags, issues with baggage are particularly annoying. Baggage problems can have a serious impact on customer loyalty, and can be costly to the airlines (airlines often have to deliver bags). Air carriers report flight delays, cancellations, overbookings, late arrivals, baggage complaints, and other operating statistics to the U.S. government, which compiles the data and reports it to the public. The Task Do some airlines do a better job of handling baggage? Compare the baggage complaints for three airlines: American Eagle, Hawaiian, and United. Which airline has the best record? The worst? Are complaints getting better or worse over time? Are there other factors, such as destinations, seasonal effects or the volume of travelers that affect baggage performance? The Data Baggage The data set contains monthly observations from 2004 to 2010 for United Airlines, American Eagle, and Hawaiian Airlines. The variables in the data set include: Baggage Scheduled Cancelled Enplaned The total number of passenger complaints for theft of......

Making Money Off Complaints off complaints One software company holds weekly staff meetings to build morale and allow for status reports from each department. One part of their meetings is the report on how many customer problems they rectified the past week. If the number increased, the group was given praise. When asked why they praise increased problem calls, as opposed to working to fix those problems in the software or documentation, the owner said that they charge for each call, so it is a way to increase their income. In other words, instead of making the customer completely satisfied with the product, they preferred some dissatisfaction, so they could fix the problem and make extra money from it. This software package was a high-ticket, expensive application that was mainly sold to small companies. They also charged $50 for a user manual for the software. Since the customers made a substantial investment in the software, they wanted to continue using it. But I wonder how much ill-will was created, even if the application usually performed well. Complaints that fall on deaf ears Have you ever experienced poor service or purchased a defective product and complained about it, only to have your complaints fall on deaf ears?
