From your experience what is the most difficult situation you have faced with a customer and how did you solve it?

1 Answers

from past experiences there are not only one but multiple occasions where the customers, due to lack of knowledge, suggested a more convenient approach to deal with a certain pest despite it being an ineffective approach. many times i had to explain to them why we do what we did and how there is no shortcut in solving their pest issues. most of the times the customers will listen but sometimes when the customers did not, then i would lay out the possible risk in proceeding in the way they wanted. at the end of the day, it is the customer who pays and they therefore have the final say in which approach to use. but it is our duty to highlight all the pros and cons to the customers and provide a professional advice on which to choose. it is always important to find a middle ground with a customer where possible so both parties will stand to gain something from the whole process.
