Provide an example when you have made a sale through the delivery of exemplary customer service. Answer
Engaged in a conversation with a passenger who was buying a single ticket on board I found out that he returns within a month so I advised him that is cheaper to buy a return. He din’t buy only the return, he was so happy with the idea of saving money so that when I told him that he could save even more money by purchasing a rail card he promised he will do so. 3.

It was a real challenge for us, the on-board staff, because people became frustrated at one moment. I not only kept people informed every step of the way up to Victoria, I also checked with every passenger on the train and co-ordinated their onward travel and served them complementary hot drinks.
Please tell us why you are applying for this position and why you feel you are suitable. * The main reason I apply for this job is that I worked in a similar position before and I simply loved to offer the very best in customer service and to assist passengers with queries ensuring they have a pleasant journey and they become regular customers. I am customer focused and I apply myself 100% to any task to ensure that the end product is the best it can be and a true reflection of my personality.
