Amtrak Customer Service Reviews

1.9 / 5
The unfriendly interaction
stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating

We are traveling to Vancouver from Seattle. We checked in at the counter around 7:30 AM on Tuesday 2/27/2024 at the King street Amtrak station.
The staff name Tina is very rude and not helpful.

She has unwelcoming demeanor. I think she is racially biased towards us.
I never has met any service staff that is this rude and disrespectful.
She does not belong to this counter that need to interact with many Amtrak customers.
Bottom line is if you cannot contain your attitude and biases, you cannot work at the check in counter or any customer service PERIOD!

First we love riding the train from Philadelphia to South Carolina. We would appreciate getting a email or text message when the train is going to be late. We know that things happen. Other than that we're good. Blessings Eva and Greg Wilson
