Tried to get a payroll check cashed at the drive up teller. My husband and I bank somewhere else but the check was cut from the employer's Wells Fargo account, any other bank would cash it right? Not this one, they want you to come inside and inconvenience yourself while you are in a hurry and talk to a banker about setting up an account. If I have told you that I simply want to cash the check and that I am already happy with where I have been banking for ten years- leave me alone and cash the check. Perhaps it is policies like this that inconvenience the customers that are keeping people from banking with you in the first place. If you are so hard up for accounts that you have to force feed your pitch you may want to re evaluate.
Unfortunately my bank was taken over by WF since then banking has been a painful experience. Everything is outsource to somewhere else and you have to try to get through the maze of 800 numbers and talking to voice recordings. Strange banking errors like canceling transactions that I did and me having to call why- no explanations or apologizes to customers. Addition errors at the local branch with deposits... Horrid!
