Service in the Hospitality Industry In this description of hospitality I am going to answer a couple questions. They will answer how I feel about hospitality. Also I will tell about some personal experiences that I have experienced. Just like any other industry of any kind there is positive and negative sides to everthing.
What Quality Service Means to Me As a hospitality professional I believe that hospitality should be about making a pleasurable experience for every single customer.

Example of Customer Service Well most of my customer service experiences have not been outstanding. There will always be good and bad experiences in basically anything and everything not just customer service, It may not be necessarily in a hotel or restaurant it could be just a general business. I have received good and bad customer service from Wal-Mart, which is a worldwide industry. It is sad to say though I usually receive poor customer service from most of the stores I have been to. They just barely do meet requirements, if they reach them. I have been to a Wal-Mart in many different states and…
