Not sure if anyone important at VZ who can make a difference will see this, but the Live Chat experience is atrocious. First, there are some basic technical problems:
* There are no timestamps so you cannot tell how much time expires between messages.
* Frequent disconnections. I don't want to accuse anyone of disconnecting on purpose... but if you looked at my chat transcript below, several agents just stopped responding after I asked questions that they didn't know how to answer.
* There is no satisfaction questionnaire at the end. So what incentives are there for agents to do a good job - other than periodic monitoring from their superiors?
Timestamps are present in the Secure Chat. To receive a Secure Chat chat session, you would need to initiate the support through VZ social media channels. The Chat with us feature on the corporate site does not contain a timestamp at this moment.
Frequent disconnections may due to the representative's computer not responding. They are instances where a representative needs to reboot the computer to resume the support.
Satisfaction questionnaires should be present at all times after a chat session has finished. I am not sure what blocks yours from displaying.
