An Opus of Incompetence, 3/17/2012

Today (01/28/2012), I called Delton Hayes Jewelers to inquire about the status of a ring re-design I hired him to complete. Mr. Hayes was rude, irrational, and verbally abusive.\rHere is the history... of our communication and the phone call of January 28, 2012:\r?I contacted Mr. Hayes on December 26th, 2011, to inquire about a ring re-design. He responded on December 27th.\r?I emailed Mr. Hayes on December 28th, 2011, about payment of the ring re-design. He never responded. I dropped off the ring to be re-designed on December 30th, 2011. Mr. Hayes informed me that the ring would take ?at most, three weeks? to complete. When he asked if I wanted to receive a phone call when they had the ring cast in wax, I said yes.\r?I received no phone call. I called on January 9, 2012, and Mr. Hayes told me that my friend had not paid half of the balance yet. I knew my friend, L, had paid on December 30th. L contacted Mr. Hayes on January 9th and gave him the credit card information again; Mr. Hayes admitted the contact information was misplaced or ?fell between the cracks.? No apology was made.\r?I emailed Mr. Hayes on January 20th, 2012, inquiring about the status of my ring. I received no reply and forwarded the email again on January 23rd, receiving a reply that it would be done by Saturday, January 28, or Sunday, January 29. \r?I heard nothing and so called Mr. Hayes on January 28, 2012. At that time, Mr. Hayes told me he did not know when the ring would be complete; he would know more ?early next week.? I asked him if ring re-designs normally took longer than a month to complete (even though I was promised differently), and he said yes. I observed to him that the ring would be complete in time if he had not sat on it for ten days, having lost the credit card information. Mr. Hayes, at that point, became extremely defensive and angry. He stated he would ?not argue? with me, that the ring would be done when it would be done, that he should have told me six weeks

BEST SERVICE LOVE THEM , 9/16/2011

I have used this jeweler for many years and have always received excellent service. Delton is always extremely nice and has given me excellent customer service. I have purchased numerous pieces of... jewelry from this jewelry store and have loved every one. They have beautiful pieces to choose from and many designs that are both priced well and look gorgeous. I always recommend them to family and friends and will continue to do so.

Most Pathetic Customer Service I've Ever Encountered

I went in to simply have a band replaced for my work watch. Granted it's not a Rolex, but they couldn't even get the band on. I went to pick it up after a week and the screws weren't even put in. Then they handed it back with the band all crooked. I asked to speak to the manager and the one and only Delton Hayes came out, looked me in the eye and simply said ""well i guess that's teh best we can do""..he didn't charge me, but i was dumbfounded that he accepted this level of incompetence from his repairman. If they cannot be trusted to perform a band change on a Casio, why would i trust that place for anything else. On top of that Mr. Hayes got snippy with me when i entered the store again seconds later when the band actually fell off the watch when i got in my car. I walked back in to give Hayes a second chance, he got in my face like he wanted to fist fight and said loudly ""look i didn't make the band i didn't make the watch, i don't wanna do anything for you!"" I was astonished, he was treating me like a 17 year old thug or something. i told him people like him go outta business. He yelled at me in the parking lot that he doesn't want business like mine anyway. Bizarre. The sad thing is that i'm fairly young and will live in Atastocita for years to come and will never go back and will tell everybody i know not to either. Besides being a horrible jeweler Hayes is a general jack-ass to boot. I cannot imagine any business in Atastocita that has a bigger jerk and he is the OWNER!! Amazing. Just amazing. I went to Jared and was treated excellent. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS IDIOT. I WAS FORCED TO RATE SOMETHING, THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS ONE STAR. HE DOESN'T EVEN DESERVE THAT!!

REVIEW RESPONSE

My name is Delton Hayes, owner of Delton Hayes Jewelers. I am writing in regards to the review stating we ruined her watch. We literally change hundreds of watch batteries a month. We have a success rate of about 99%. In the case of the ladies Seiko watch, thereare certain critical things that are required to make a watch water resistant. These are not addressed in a standard $10 battery replacement. If you take your watch to have the battery replaced and it is a watch you intend to swim in, please notify the store where you take it. They will then be able to inform you of the additional steps and costs involved.

Ruined My Seiko Watch

Because of the recommendation of a friend, I went to Delton Hayes Jewelers to have the battery in my Seiko watch replaced. After replacing the battery I went swimming the following weekend and noticed water in my watch. In my two years of owning the watch this had never happened. The watch is water resistant after all. I brought the watch back to Delton Hayes Jewelers to have them look at my watch. I just figured that they had not put the back of the watch on tight enough after replacing the battery and water was leaking into it. After looking at the watch they confirmed that water had been leaking and that the damage was pretty significant. I explained to them that my watch had never done this before until they changed the battery and assumed that they would fix the watch since they did not put the backing on correctly. Not so. He told me that I should have gotten them to perform a ""pressure test"" on the watch before taking it home. First problem with this is that in all of my 33 years of life I have never heard of a ""pressure test"" when replacing a battery on a watch. Second problem, and my argument, is that I was never told about the ""pressure test"" when my battery was being replaced, so how was I to know that it should have been performed. I felt that I was not fully informed and Mr. Hayes felt as though he did not need to repair my watch because I did not perform the ""pressure test."". All I know is that I had a perfectly fine Seiko watch that was brought in for a simple watch repair. I now have a rusted and broken Seiko watch that was not properly adjusted after the simple battery repair, and Delton Hayes Jewelers refuses to fix it.
