"Off shore telephone customer service is APPALLING!!!
they don't speak English or understand it!
Why has a well respected British retailer made the choice to route thier calls off shore when the ones in Britian are far better and can actually deal with customer query's."
"Sophie in Health and Beauty in Liverpool Strore is fabulous. Sophie was so helpful with queries and product recommendations.
Sophie is a brilliant advert for a customer service team member .
Good luck in the future."
"M&S flowers not delivered by YODEL Dartford, Crossways Business Park. It seems Yodel reviews either (if this site is honest) get it right or don't ..
On this occasion, they didn't as M&S flowers ordered but not delivered - apparently they were attempted to be delivered to a regular London address, and advised a card left. It wasnt - no card left, and no way to track because - guess what, no card with ref or ctc was left!
Website advises collecting from delivery centre, 30 miles away (Crossways Business Park), and offer to collect at persons convenience.
Problem is with M&S using a company that doesn't do what it should, and has inadequate follow up.
Very disappointed that a simple 'cant be bothered to do the job correctly' has ruined a surprise for someone just out of hospital...
Just seen a response from socialmediaescalations at yodel.gnatta.com .. however just fyi Yodel have failed to deliver the parcel yet again .. having had promises from M&S outsourced call centre that this was confirmed from your Yodel delivery centre. Apparently out for delivery since 1100, and then 2130 a message saying unable to deliver (second time), and unsurprisingly no info or card given to the recipient despite a ctc number.
M&S should be ashamed to use Yodel worse than CityLink, and they went bust .. a lesson learned I guess ..
M&S flowers not delivered for 2 consecutive days by Yodel, despite definite assurances to the contrary. M&S are at fault for not insuring their contractors are up to the job.
This was intended as a surprise for a friend out of hospital, but now failed badly, so that is 2 sets expectations badly let down. M&S & Yodel - get your act together! Once getting it wrong is bad, but twice? ..
Message to M&S - a damaging weakness in your reputation today."
"On my sister’s 15th birthday I took her to have her first bra fitting (M&S Croydon). Patty welcomed us and calmed Megan’s nerves with her up-beat voice, comforting comments and reassuring nature. Patty was also very kind when interacting with a reluctant, know it all, teenager. We found two bras that were perfect. Thank you so much for not only making this experience bearable but quite positive and pleasurable."
"Reposted to keep it alive. This company are really not very good . I simply cannot understand how people rave about their food quality, when in fact it isn't very good at all. This company try to live on a bygone reputation, when there was little else really to get clothes from. The quality of their items is not good at all for the price. Whoever their buyers are should be sacked and get in people who understand what the public want, not what the the company THINK they want. Paying over the odds for clothing does not mean great quality. In fact this company sell clothing items either too long in the sleeves, trousers that are not what the size states they are, to name but two. I live in Kent, and the store in Dover has closed down recently. It has moved down nearer the sea front selling food only. This shopping precinct idea came from Dover District Council, and anyone living locally knows what this means. It most likely means that like everything else DDC get up to, it will fail. Seems like M&S didn't do their homework!! Who on earth is going to make a special trip to Dover to shop in Marks, for example, when they can drive a short distance to Canterbury and shop in that store which sells food also. It is very big. Come on Marks, get your act together and get with the times. Oh, and don't do what all the others are doing....self service checkouts. It is a fact people, that every single item you buy, the price of it being scanned at a REAL checkout by a REAL person, has been factored in to the total cost. If they want self service then insist on a discount for doing so or DON'T use them."
"Worst returns experience ever!
I purchased two identical shirts, but decided to return one, in its original sealed packaging with labels on it etc.
I also provided the original online order acknowledgement and invoice.
After queuing for 10 minutes , I was told that i could not retrun the shirt, because I did not have the paper collection note, and was told, "try a larger store, you may have better luck""
"My 4 year old granddaughter and I love their eccles cakes which were stuffed with currants and very yummy. OK there is a world shortage of rasins due to poor crop so M&S solution is to stuff a bit of pastry filler in them so they look the same but there are far less currants. Pathetic. Most people who shop at M&S would not mind paying a little more but as it is the product is not worth eating! Wont buy it again! If they think customers dont/wont notice they are wrong!"
"I have only ordered twice on line and the first item didn't arrive on date stated .I was told byou lady at desk it was unusual so tried a second time ticking the box for next day delivery at store if your choice to then receive an email saying delivery is a further week away .very poor service especially when you request payment first to order but then say you wait several days for payment to be returned .I have been dissapointed for some time over the quality of clothes in store but have decided I will not shop again ever .standards have dropped so much far to expensive for poor quality goods"
"I would advise anyone thinking of buying anything which you can't take away with you, to think twice. Let's face it you don't buy because they are the cheapest but because you believe you can trust M&S for quality and service. I was shocked at how I've been treated by them.
I ordered a wardrobe in November which was in stock and also a footstool. Told delivery would be 29th Jan, received reminder 22nd Jan confirming delivery and again 26th with a more exact time. So I prepared for the delivery getting rid of the old wardrobe, only to get a call later on the 26th saying there was a problem with the footstool from the manufacturer and they wouldn't be able to deliver until 22nd Feb. Not a big problem as I could live without a footstool a bit longer.
What about the wardrobe I asked. What wardrobe was the reply, I can't access the system at the moment, but don't worry I will get back to you on Monday.
No call by 3pm Monday so I called customer service. They couldn't provide a logical reason why the wardrobe couldn't be delivered sooner than the 22nd Feb. I asked to speak to a manager and was told it would take 2 days for someone to call. No call within 2 days so I called again. I said if no one called me today then I would elevate my complaint.
It would seem management hide or there is a shortage of managers as well as lorries to deliver the furniture they sell. My trust in M&S has been reduced completely and I'm not surprised to see they are now closing stores. Doesn't seem to be the company I grew up with."
"I have just eaten M&S Crispy Prawns with sweet chilli sauce......along with others......absolutely fabulous prawns! Perfect texture and flavour.....a real surprise as I was having a binge night/ tv slackers convenience dine in!......really blown away by this....well done will be having it again soon!
I was really surprised at the quality of this food."
"My trousers. Why is it that their trousers are a hit and miss affair? I buy trousers at a certain waist and leg length. The chances of any two pairs being the same leg length are nigh on nil, even though the label says they are. It is the same with pullovers. Arm lengths are ludicrously too long, always. Females too that I know complain about the same thing and will not shop there anymore. If anyone from that company is reading this why is it that you have never ever learned why it is your clothes sales give you financial issues? Why has M&S never ever brought themselves up to date with fashion and pricing in their clothing lines? Oh well. Just thought I would have my say."
"The staff are very knowledgeable,and very polite ,and always ready with a smile I shop regularly in the Boston store ,food mainly . It's always top class good quality food . Served by good looking staff that all smell delightful and look immaculate. Any single ladies . Even the classic ladies all look good . They all get on never back biting or saying bad things about anyone . Marks bosses should be very proud ,because no matter what the position is in the store it's them that make it and bring me back time and time again . The girls are ambassadors for marks ,and they certainly live up to it . One girl today in Boston store called Rebecca ,she is on training and going to Skegness store at a later date . Rebecca was most helpful and very kind pointing out the different breads ,she is good for marks top girl and looked a peach . Pretty face full of honesty .The name Rebecca means HELPER how fitting Plus the name Rebecca comes from the Hebrew language and is used in the New Testament and the other spelling is Rebekah which is used in the old testaments,meaning TO TIE THE NOOSE and she did just that in her manners which were I may add impeccable,like all the staff are Top Girl ,I just wish I was a bit younger ,I would certainly joining you on bread recognition."
"Always A1 for customer services in store. Staff helpful but not too forceful in brand/ product pushing which meant I purchased more and was not put off. Good variety of English apples and vegetables - a rarity in todays supermarket chains.Would recommend the Ashford Kent foodhall ."
