The evaluation criteria include the customer service representatives' courtesy, knowledge and concern for the customer; promptness in speaking to a person; and timely resolution of the problem or request.
The experience with the automated phone system is evaluated based on the clarity of the information provided; ease of navigating the phone menu prompts; and ease of understanding the phone menu instructions.
