Pep Stores No respect from your staff at jabulani branch

There is someone called kamu working at pep cell at jabulane in soweto. I am sure she is one of the reasons why pep store in naledi was shut down because she has a very poor customer service and no regard for people who walk in there to spend their money which goes towards paying their salary. She needs to be taught some respect and appreciation for customers. I was there other day when she sent me to shoprite for sim purchase and said i must come back so she could do [rica] for me. I could not get any help as they said they could not help either. Went i went back to pep cell she said i must produce my id and proof of address which i did previously. I was suprised when she said it was not certified but she accepted it like that before when i bought a telkom sim card, i indicated to her that she was wasting my time and she started to get annoyed and said [next customer] as i was still first in the queue/waiting line. She needs to be taught some ubuntu and she also has to be shown how to conduct herself in front of customers. She is very rude and unprofessional. I have put all this on all social media platforms for everyone to see. I wonder who place these people at pep stores because i was even served by another called nthabiseng at the same store. She has no smile on her face and looked bothered when i bought (spent) some voucher.

Pep Stores Angry and disappointed in pep store manager and staff

I work in the mall of chatsworth center and i have a problem walking so i walked into pep stores looking for baby things for my nieces baby which will be born soon . I was going to buy the whole line of clothing for a newborn baby .

I walked in with a basket trolley as mentioned i worked in the mall as it helps me balance and told the manger i will be about 5 mins for now just to look and i will be back

point blank i was refused to be let inside and told no trolleys inside and i explained i have a problem with my leg please allow me for 5 minutes and again was refused and was told so if you have a problem with your leg walking how you working which was offensive.

I am 50+ and my balancing is a problem.

Im very hurt and disappointed as to the manner i was treated nobody even the manager asked if i needed any help .

What customer service is provided?

yes i have a problem walking but this store as lost a customers sale worth r3000 its not even about the money

is this how pep store treats its customers ?

by the way im in retail myself for more than 30 years and i know how i was treated is wrong !

get your pep stores better training for customer service.

Pep Stores Employees

Good day, I am writing a complaint for the staff at pep home in kokstad regional centre I went to collect a parcel today and the absolute discusting attitude of your staff is unacceptable!, its not the first time I have had to deal with such attitude, they could not locate my parcel, from picking thier noses to insulting me and making jokes about me as a customer in thier native tongue (they didnt realise I am fluent in xhosa and zulu) they assumed because I was white it was safe to do so, absolutely shocking customer service! I am absolutely discusted to say the least and I will tell everyone I know not to support the store due to their attitudes lack of manners and absolutely no self respect! I will be sharing this all over to make sure no one visits the store again

Desired outcome: i would like an apology and all those ladies to sign warnings for insolent attitude and bad customer service

When I get to the shop I' always need to be served by her...Shopping there over festive season was such a Joy, I therefore request the CEO of Pep to make her an

Pep Stores Stylo arctic cell phone

The cell phone was bought at pep cell in Claremont Cape Town on the 5th September 2023. after two weeks i noticed that it would just switch off by itself, but thought i might have accidentally done it. then on the first sun in November after a short run in the suburbs with my phone, i found that it had again switched off this time it wouldn't start up again, i tried charging it, perhaps the battery was flat but it still wouldn't switch on.

i returned it to the store, explained what had happened, also said that i am unemployed, started something small at home, but the phone is my source of income, i was told it would take 2 to 3 months..

i followed up on this twice already , each time they do not know what i am talking about. yesterday i called the store, had to explain everything again, the manager said she will call be back in a few min, she never did

Claimed loss: a daily income on average of about R145

Desired outcome: i would like a new phone asap so that i generate some income againi would like part of that income i lost to be put towards a better phone

Pep Stores Stylo air smartphone

I bought the STYLO AIR "smartphone" from the PEP Home at Ridgeview Shopping Centre (Shop 1, Ridgeview Shopping Centre, 200 Ouklip Rd, Helderkruin, Johannesburg, 1724) about 2 months ago.

It specifies that this smartphone has 2GB of RAM but is the slowest and most unreliable smartphone I have ever owned! I have an old Samsung smartphone with 1.5GB of RAM which runs faster than the STYLO AIR.

Yes, the STYLO AIR is a budget smartphone, however, with 2GB of RAM it should run smoothly and not as slow as it does.

I hoped that a software update would solve this problem but this STYLO AIR smartphone is up to date and still operates very slowly.

I would like a refund as this STYLO AIR smartphone does not operate as fast as a smartphone with 2GB of RAM should.

I am going back to the PEP Home at Ridgeview Shopping Centre as soon as they open this morning at 9 am to get a refund and I really hope that I am refunded.

Claimed loss: R899.00

Desired outcome: A full refund.

Pep Stores Stylo atlas phone

This phone is absolute [censored] even as I am typing right now it's jamming

1. Speaker doesn't work properly and is choppy when I play music I literally have to restart the whole phone and even that doesn't work sometimes.

2. Fingerprint sensor isn't working: A few weeks ago my fingerprint sensor was working but but now it's not, I tried removing my current fingerprint but as soon as I did that the fingerprint setting completely disappeared from my phone I tried everything even factory reseting the phone but still nothing

3. Overall the phone itself if is a piece of [censored] because whenever I turn on my data or when I receive a notification it starts lagging and freezing up and the it's not compatible with a lot of apps which is very annoying and it doesn't have important features like display over other apps

PLEASE PEP STOP SELLING THIS [censored]

Desired outcome: To fix my fingerprint sensor

today the 2nd September, I went to get the laybye at the store, intending to pay the full outstanding balance, to be told that my laybye was sent back to the floor, without any warning, staff unsympathetic and very unhelpful, this is the worst experience at pep. Was told I can have a look on th floor for my items.

Pep Stores Cellphone repairs

I bought Samsung A3 after 3 months it stopped working and i took it back to the PEP CELL branch i bought it. I was told it will take 35 working days to repair it. i think this is not a right at all especially to a poor customer who needs to be in touch looking for opportunities all the time. so by telling me 35 working days to repair are you telling me i should buy a new phone? This is not fair at all

thank you

Desired outcome: I would appreciate a response and the phone is repaired quickly and not 35 working days.

I just want my money back. phone have no physical damage whatsoever I just want my money back but they all done want to help me. it's not fair it's not even 17 days I have this phone. The customer service there it's terrible very terrible. I even cried to the manager he didn't care let alone the Area manager. My bp went high I'll never forget this. I just want my money back. it's so stressful to have a phone like this while I know my situation.
