Don’t make customers wait for you, advises Ron Reahard of Reahard & Associates. If a grocery store cashier told customers they weren't ready yet, the store "wouldn’t be in business two weeks," Reahard said. "But [F&I managers] do that to customers all the time because we want to follow our process, not their process.” That doesn’t work with today’s customer, he said.
