Amazon rarely if ever fails me in finding the books I need and getting them to me quickly. Highly recommended!

I was transferred to an apple specialist from AT&T, who was unable to get a signal on my new iPhone. I could tell from the start that she was not knowledgeable because she kept referring back to apple's cheat sheets. We got disconnected, and the next agent asked "surely you know how to do that," which I felt was quite demeaning. I told here that and she tried to apologize but the damage was done. She couldn't help me, so I'm off to the AT&T store tomorrow morning!

I was pleasantly surprised by the quantity of Kenneth Cole Reaction shoes that the site had, at cheaper prices than Kenneth Cole. I was a bit disappointed to see that one style of boot had been discontinued, but this is not the fault of Zappo's. Highly recommended1

i visit the closest WF branch yesterday to make a deposit. I expressed my concern that there were few branches and ATMs for use, resulting in charges at other banks. The teller was very empathized, and suggested ways to change my account to eliminate the ATM fees and she said she would elevate this to the local director. Sometime all it takes is one long tern client with a sizable portfolio to make a difference!

spent an immense amount of time inputting biographical, education, and work history, only to hear back from them 3 months later. FAIL!

I went specifically looking for a larger humidifier and received little-to-no assistance from the associate. I ended up purchasing one that I thought would work better than the one I had, but in actuality it worked worse. The only redeeming factor was the no questions asked policy and prompt refund.

Indeed

This is a well-designed web platform to aggregate open jobs from multiple sources. I give it a 3 star rating as I did not find my job on indeed.

Walgreens

This review is for the 7401 N Clark Street Location.

Most all of the Pharmacy staff know me by nae. They go out of the way to ensure I have a sufficient amount of medications. They are quick to notify me if this is a comparable drug in the store and save me money. One of the Pharmacists took quite a bit of her time to review drug interactions with one of my medications while I was approaching the right medications and dosages.

So thak you Phamacy staff. I hope you see this!

I purchased the wrong ink cartridge set, and went to another store which helped me find the right set and exchanged, hassle free!

Beyond.com

I submitted my resume and cover letter to advertisers on Beyond and got not even one call back or interview. I am highly qualified and met the minimum requirements of all the jobs I posted to, never to hear from them again.

Beyond could make it a stipulation that employers respond to all applicants of a job!

Bed Bath & Beyond

I purchased a rolling 2-tier bookcase from the Skokie, IL store (should have been leery of the re-taped end) and the instructions fundamentally show how to install, but there are pieces with certain nuisances that had to be installed first, and one piece of hardware was unusable, until I got out a pair of pliers and bent it back correctly.

Yes, I should have repackaged everything and gone back to the store (a 20 min ride), but it was hardly worth it, A simple task took 3 hours to complete.

I visited the Lucky Jeans store at 2048 Halsted St In Chicago today and had the most pleasant visit. The manager and I were discussing my move from Washington, DC and she told me about here recent relocation with the company. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Our first game was yesterday, and even with all the chaos of many teams converging on the rinks at the same time, the staff was able to give superior customer service despite that fact. Kudos on a great experience!

I recently purca hased a relatively expensive PC from Busy Buy and got a geeksquad warranty. I had data transferred from my struggling old PC to the new PC and the process went less than smooth. I had to return to the store (30 min drive) twice and use geeksquad online twice, and FINALLY had to schedule an in person geek squad appointment to resolve all the issues. I truly have a lack of faith in geek squad and in the future will look into other alternatives.

I needed to return a second item to total hockey but the website wouldn't allow. I contacted customer service and Jeff sent me a return label just as soon as we hung up. SCORE!

I shop at the Jewel at Clark and Howard in Chicago, and was grateful for no line at the checkout as I got my Thanksgiving supplies. I'm sure that will change as the season proceeds!

I successfully passed three phone interviews, and a 4th in-person interview was scheduled in town. I took public transportation to get there (~1 hr) and arrived 30 mins early. A message was left with the interviewer, and at the appointed time asked security to call up again. It was later learned that the person I was to interview with had a sick child that morning, and had asked the recruiter to contact me to reschedule. I never got a message and wasted an entire morning commuting and waiting on one interview. I finally got a half-assed apology via email from the recruiter mid-afternoon.I rescheduled the interview and it went really well, but I did not hear back for over 3 weeks, at which time I was told the position was placed on hold. One would think that a candidate who had made it through to both hiring managers with great feedback would have been called and told this information, rather than having to call this. If the company operates in any fashion as the recruiting practice, I am probably lucky I did not end up working for a dysfunctional company.

I have been to the gym 3 times and have had great experiences every time at the Evanston, IL location. The staff is friendly and the location very clean, and the trainers very thorough at giving you a good workout. Highly recommended.
