Great tool to aid in lack of good customer service

I’m glad Yelp is here. Every business reads what is written and spoken about them. When they read bad or good it’s up to them to address it. Most times they do, other times they just get upset about it, changing nothing. The problem remains. I use Yelp hoping the places I go to I can help bring in customers and increase sales, but more so to boost customer service if it isn’t good enough for my experience. To me, customer service is the only way to make it in the world. The only way to keep the customers coming. In Hilo, there are a lot of local places that don’t teach their workers how important their impression is on the company. And how much their first greet to an incoming customer means. Lots of young kids just joining the work force don’t know. Nor do they care. There is time for change. Yelp is the key.

Was forced to download their app.

I do not like websites that force you to download their app to fully read everything. Help is also frequently wrong about hours of operation. I only downloaded this because I wanted to read reviews for a place and couldn’t click on read more without downloading the app -.- there’s no need for a Yelp app when it pops up when you search for any business… it’s more effort to go to the app than just use a search engine. I much prefer google reviews because they are almost always up to date with correct info and hours and more people seem to use it. Yelp is outdated and obsolete. I would like this a lot better if I didn’t HAVE to download the app. It just doesn’t make sense. I imagine they want your info and that’s why they want you to download it. So they can sell it and make money. That’s just what I think, it’s not based on fact. Just my opinion. I would use Yelp a lot more if I didn’t have to download the app -.- it’s not a huge deal but it’s annoying and pointless. I always feel bad for rating some app or business low, and I would give zero stars but it makes me feel bad and mean. So I gave Yelp two stars. Just to be nice. If it was updated with correct info and hours and didn’t fire you to use their app then I would give it 4-5 stars!
