AT&T Customer Service Management and Equipment Orders
Why can't customers get or find a telephone number for AT&T Customer Service management? Whenever I've had an occasion to call the 800-288-2020 number to speak to a customer service rep. and subsequently asked to speak to the CSR's supervisor, there has never been one available to talk with at that time. The CSRs either do not have or say they can't give me a phone number to call any manager/management.
Why is management so isolated from the public and customer service? This is completely unacceptable customer service. One time I accepted the CSR's offer to have a supervisor call me back at a later time, but I could not get a definite day/date or time I would receive the callback, and in fact, I never received a callback.
If AT&T wants to continue in existence the company needs to make some drastic changes in customer services. 1) there needs to be ways for customers to contact management to escalate billing and or local service problems, and 2) there needs to be faster delivery of requested equipment than there is presently. In this day of electronics and data transmission, there is no reason it should take 10-20 days for an equipment order to be delivered from the time the order is entered by a customer service representative.
I'm not expecting AT&T to have the same delivery system as Amazon, but I do expect that when an order is placed by a CSR to a warehouse the order should be received within seconds and then a warehouse employee picks up the order that same day, and place the piece of equipment ordered in a box and mailed by the next day. What is so difficult about that?
