Worst Online Service and Customer service

I am part of the customers that got moved from HSBC to First Niagara. It was supposed to be smooth without glitches. It is not. First of all I am a mac user and quicken user. None works; I have to use a windows computer and internet explorer to use their online service !!! No download of activities and reconciliation of account with Quicken Essentials for Mac. Their credit card service does not provide also any online link to Quicken. Basically all what I was doing with HSBC online, I can't anymore. I went to HSBC because it was an international bank; not anymore. You have to go through Mellon Bank to handle any type of international transfer you may have; very inconvenient when you have family members overseas. By the way, I am still waiting for an answer to my emails from their customer support; actually to be fair I got one reply 48 hours later to one of my complaint: credit card: we do not support quicken download.

Great Bank, Nice Folks, Good Hours, Useable Online Banking

I have no clue what the people on her are talking about. The branch and 800 have been exceptional. I have three accounts with First Niagara and have never felt anything but satisfied.

Horrible Online Banking!!!! Beware Do Not Get A Car Loan!

This bank has a horrible online service and also a horrible customer phone service. For the phone service, they'll make you wait with a automated respond machine with a repetitive robot speaking. Then it gives you the option to let them call you back but hitting the # key. Then when you do the stupid automated robot repeats. Once you wait 10 to 15 minutes for them to call you back, they ask all for your information and say they send you to a new representative and will call you back, once again you wait another 10 minutes they say we need a copy of your drivers license to be emailed, and after they receive it they will call you back. Once all this shenanigans they finally give you a stupid pin to start your online statements. But after all that you cant even do payments. All you do is see how much you owe!!!!. And to pay by telephone they will charge you a 15$ fee to make a payment!
