An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Tuesday, which averages 150% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 281 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Monday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Thursday.

The best time to call

In summation, the best day to call is Thursday.

I have a dyslexic middle-schooler and I'm attempting to figure out the best way to help her out. One thing that I've seen suggested in online communities is Audible. Audio books are a great way to help bridge that gap in reading, but I didn't know much about the Audible service and I wanted to know if it's better to get a subscription directly through Audible or via Amazon. While I could do an online search, I felt this would be better answered by a person.

Overall, I had a decent experience dealing with their customer service. The call itself was not terribly long, but the customer service is definitely outsourced. It strikes me as odd that a company that specializes in audio solutions can't do better.

There are a lot of reasons why people might call, and given that a large section of their target audience is probably blind, I imagine they get a lot of phone calls. Going online to look for customer service probably isn't a normal thing for some of their target audience. Regardless, I wish they had hired employees who speak clear English because the second half of my call would have gone more smoothly.

When I first called Audible, the system told me that I could dial 1 if I knew my party's extension. I didn't, so I waited a second, and then it asked me to dial 8 for customer services or 0 for the operator. I did pause to consider if I wanted customer services or the operator, but then, I opted for customer services.

After pressing 8, a very clear automated voice outlined several options to me stating, "Hi you’ve reached Audible. Our menu has several options. Please choose from the following: If you are visually impaired, press 1, and we will do our best to connect you with an accessibility specialist. To cancel your membership, press 2. Have a question about your listening experience? Press 3 for assistance. Having technical issues, press 4." It added to stay on the line for other questions.

Everything up to this point was clear and easy to understand, but after two minutes and 54 seconds, I was connected to a real person who had a very thick accent. Eventually, I got answers to most of my questions, but it took a long time. I had to keep asking her to repeat things, and it was very annoying.

Christian has been writing about long hold times and customer service call center experiences since 2010. He's been featured in Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal and the Boston Globe.

More Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium. Customer Service Live Chat - Customer Service
Online chat link. Wait to be connected to representative.
If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, provides this option. Customer Email Addresses - Customer Service
Customer service email address
Corresponding with a customer service department by email may not be your first choice, especially if your issue is urgent or time-sensitive. But email is a nearly ubiquitous form of communication, and will reply our your email. Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter) - Customer Service
Use the link to connect with customer service through Twitter, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account. Customer Help Desk / Web Support - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
