At the Kirkland Warehouse a young boy named Max was trying to push some executive membership or whatever. It is rude to be trying to bother customers at the cash register while the customer is paying attention to the cashier and the transaction.
He was reading some info off of a small slip of paper and called me by name. Then he wanted to sell some thing or some idea. I have no desire or need for any additional services, coupons, rebates, etc (nothing) and I politely and softly told him I didn't need anything. He asked me if I knew what the executive thing is.
I told him again that I wasn't interested. He then started harping on it in an argumentative way and demanding that I answer his question. I firmly told him that I'm not answering his question and he snarled, "Way to be nice about it!" and walked off. Of course throughout the encounter, I was nice about it by softly telling him I wasn't interested.
He somehow thought customers have to answer his questions and that he has a right or a COSTCO job to be persistent. His lack of acceptance of my initial declining of his sales pitch seemed to be too personal to him. Please train Max or move him to a different position away from members. Again, the Kirkland Warehouse should be represented as the model store of good customer respect.
When Max has been talked with by your mgmt, please let me know and I'll bump up the rating. Thanks!
