Regarding: notary services. Today, i visited with my son, one of your pnc bank located on ludlow ave, cincinnati. I have my company provided business debit card and its great and today i wanted a notary signature on a document. (called in advance saying the same)
i would have been happy if the counter clerk said, that they could not honor because i am not customer. I need to wait before he completed looking into his computer system for 15min after getting my pnc business card and driver license. He could do better and be more decision making with your software. I like to see pnc prosper. With that purpose in mind, if you could provide notary services free of cost or for a charge that would provide your bank credibility in the local community rather than refusing the customer.
My message to you is mesmerize the visitor with whatever you can do with something behind the service. For example, there were two student who visited exactly like me but before me in line and they could not get notary service because they are not customers (i think its the easy way to lose future customers). They offered to ask if the bank likes to charge them a fee and help them. The clerk politely replied "no".
People are sensitive and i am one of them. I doubt i recommend pnc to anybody or would be reserved before i could. If your core competency is not servicing (the small stuff and connecting to the local community), i think online banks like ing orange and charles schwab would be ideal choice and do far better work for every customer. Wish you get well. Hari m a
it is possible, i am missing something that pnc has already considered (except taking too long until i said it before the clerk decides that they can not notarize my document)
This is probably the worst bank ever. I have had many accounts there over the years. Mortgage - took forever to close the account and provide a closed letter. Signature loan - again took forver to provide a closed account letter and then sent the letter recently for another account closing. Branch is incompetent and do not follow up with requests made. Right now i have a loan that cannot go to underwriting because i am waiting for a closed letter for a small overdraft account.
Called the branch because they were supposed to fax me the letter the moment the account closed. Account was closed last week and they "forgot" to stay on top of this. It will take another day to get the letter faxed to the branch (because of course their back office won't fax the letter to me directly) and then i have to count on the branch actually faxing like they promised. As soon as this is complete; i will take my business elsewhere.
I had my account with PNC for 3 years in college (Northern NJ) and loved it. Very convenient, very responsive, reasonable charges for someone just learning how to manage their own finances.
Then two years ago I moved away from the mid-Atlantic region into New England where there are not any PNC branches (still minimal issues) until I lost my debit card. I had not changed my address, so the new card replacement timeline was around two weeks. Two weeks with only checks to access my account. The customer service team was "unable" to help, and informed me that I would be suspended from using the online banking service until I received my new card. I then had issues receiving my new card. They charged me again the lost card fee and told me that I had given them the wrong address. False, the customer service rep repeated my address word for word, but somehow lost the number for my apartment when recording my address. I ended up opening an account with an online banking franchise, confirmed my identity, and received my new debit card before I ever got my PNC bank card. After two months and numerous calls to customer service, I finally received my new debit card. WAY more hassle than it was worth.
