I have personal accounts with citibank. I like their website okay. Some features are helpful, like the expense categorizer tool. And i often use the e-bill payment option, which i assume is standard with all banks. I also like that i can nickname my accounts so i don't have to remember which account is which. Now, i just opened a citi business account and after going through all the extra security measures to sign on with a token at www. Citibusinessonline. Com, i was taken aback at how crappy the look and feel of the citi business user interface is. It looks like a grade school project.
There is hyperlinked text for everything, no graphical buttons. It takes about 4 clicks just to get to see your account's transactions. 4 clicks!! On the personal citibank site, you sign in and you get presented with an overview of all your accounts right from the get go. But the business online experience is a totally different animal. It looks like it was done in the 90s and then never updated again (it still uses frames, which are no longer supported in html5).
I called the citibank business department and very politely let them know that i feel i've been suckered into using citibank for my business needs because they sell you on the regular citibank website that has all the bells and whistles. I spoke to a supervisor and he spoke to a level 2 guy, but at the end it was just "thank you for letting us know. "
the sad part is that i get charged $20/m for the business account (my personal accounts are free). For what? For a lousy, half-assed online experience? Citibank pays its ceo millions of dollars but it can't even allocate the funds to get a web development/design team together that replicates or improves upon the personal citibank website? I am very disappointed in citibank. What we need is a company like google to start a brick-and-mortar bank and shake things up in the online bank user experience field.
I received a check on this bank to be a mystery shopper. It was sent over night fedex from ny. It has at top of check offical check with this bank name and address. I called this bank and it is not real. Thank you cody for being honest with me. The sender wanted me to deposit it in my bank and get cash and go send money orders to someone in ny. It is a scam. Becareful. What a shame.
I called to ask for assistance in the resolution of two issues. First, the wait time was approx 17 min. Then, i spoke with a "diana" who was clearly asian. Not only was she difficult to understand, but she interrupted constantly, often in the middle of the question that i was about to ask. She did not resolve either issue, constantly stating things like "that is a different dept", then when i asked for the dept's nbr, stating "i cannot give you that information. " i asked to speak with a manager who apologized profusely, stating "we do have problems with courtesy with overseas reps. " the manager gave me the information needed and i will try again monday to resolve the issues. May god be with me!!!
