Customer care in Ethiopia

Hello everyone,

The way customer services are handled can greatly affect your views on certain brands, products, companies or stores. As a consumer, it is important to get familiar with local practices regarding client assistance in Ethiopia and try to understand how things work in the country.

How would you describe your customer service experiences in Ethiopia?

Do you feel welcome when you enter a store? Do you get useful tips and advice?

Are after-sales services available in Ethiopia?

Thanks for sharing your experience,

Priscilla

Hi Priscilla,

Nice subject to discuss. What is your interest ? Or are you creating a Study / Report ?

Having stayed there many times, I am able to participate, if required.

Thanks, Richard.

Hi Priscilla

The customer care in Ethiopia is quite appreciative......

Consecutively travelling (6 to 7 times in a year) to Ethiopia to look after my sponsors work....

People are cooperative and helping nature.. I walk around the streets to book shops, coffee shop, hospitals, restaurants, private taxi, entertainment places... In all above categories, people welcomed and upon request, guided me to the  right direction with better advice..... A incidence that occurred in Addis Ababa with me:  Had dinner at outside restaurant and walked around to go to hotel but suddenly heavy rain starts at 9:30 pm .. I am looking for Taxi but couldnt found and my clothes wet with rain.... Then 2 unknown  girls stopped the car and asked to sit inside.... For a instance, i got feared as i do not know them but they drop me to the hotel,safely and said we knew that you are  new  to this place...

Most importantly,,,, Private sector business is not guaranteed unless any business deal to be officially documented with attestation.... As personally and in general,,, people are cooperative at Addis Ababa.....Delicious food with low cost.... Nice Atmosphere with max...27 degree centigrade to summer...... Live Animals (goat & sheep) and Seeds is countries best business.....Best tourist place too.... Irrespective of caste, creed and color, equal rights to all & due respect to tourists guest...

Almost 90% of services in Addis Ababa don't know what customer service means. The private sectors or do late me start the government services. It is such a problem finding the right information within the company or the organisation or the department. I feel sometimes the people working with hold information on purpose. It needs a lot of work to improve the system.  Training training training

Hi everybody,

Just to inform you that some inappropriate posts have been removed from this thread.

Lack of system is every where.... If raised Govt sector issues then we must go back to ancient records or  history....A intellectual is always creates the atmosphere of development but these people were below the poverty line... If compared Ethiopia with Ghana, Somalia, Nigeria, Eritria etc... then far more better... The king Negis (Najjashi) was popularly known for his justifiable rule..

Correct me, if i am wrong.... But overall,  walking in and around at midnight as a stranger is also found to be safe, averagely....There required a business management institutes & orientation of modern hospitality methods...... Entertainment is part of their lifes and otherwise hospitality exists in their heart....

Just i noticed regarding threats is concern...... Shall avoid to post personal details in future....

Hi Arif,

So you compare quality of service with Somalia, Eritrea and Nigeria !!! Really !! That is a rediculous comparison. You are comparing "bottom" of the list, with "bottom" of the list !!
Laughable.

Attitudes need to change fundimentally, for service to improve. No customers, no money, no business = no jobs.

Personally, my experience of service in Ethiopia has been, below minimum acceptable standards, on any scale, including African standards.
