Customer Service Nostalgia
Posted by Becky Carroll on August 21, 2007
I just had to share this great picture of the call center in the early days! These were the days where customers were treated with great respect, service was always given with a smile (yes, you can hear a smile over the phone!), and there was always a personal touch.
I saw this pic thanks to Valeria Maltoni, who pointed me to the GetSatisfaction blog (just added you guys to my blogroll!), who got it from The Washington Monthly. Here is what the text in the picture says:
“This “magic scoreboard” makes it possible for the Hilton Reservation Offices listed below to give you, while you are still on the phone, complete reservation information at any of the 33 Hilton Hotels around the world. You will receive an immediate verbal reply on your reservation request, and a written confirmation will be mailed the same day.
Here are a few more nostalgic images of customer service personnel.

(Note – These sleeping bunks had two seats that turned into a lower bed, with the upper bed folding down from above, similar to a train.)
Here’s to old-fashioned customer service!
