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.

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 office is worthless. Cannot get a cashiers check, had to drive 20 miles to another PNC bank. I can understand not being able to withdraw large sums of cash from a small place but can't get a cashiers check?!?! And cannot withdraw more than 1,000 cash even if your account has 10,0000. What is the purpose of this place? Just replace the humans with an atm, save $$ :)
Awful customer service! Awful management!
Let's just say the tellers are nice and sweet. After that it's all downhill. Managers from the top on down are awful. They do NOT help you when you need it most. They do NOT return phone calls even when urgent. Even the branch manager. They do NOT care about their customer's needs.
When I needed to wire money from my account they simply would NOT help. I was out of town. I could not get a return phone call. When I needed to deposit a business check that has a slight variation in the business name the assistant manager refused to help. Simply refused. Yes you read that right.
Recently I asked for the branch manager to call me. I was told he was "busy". He never called. I am in the process of closing my accounts. Avoid this bank. Bad to the bone!
