I did not open my acct as a 2nd chance - I opened my accts because of the convenience of bank'ng hrs. I opened my accts w/a $50 dep + a sign up bonus, which I did receive. During my tenure w/Woodforest, the staff "knows" me - I mean they KNOW me! Of the original staff, 2 are left, but I can call my branch, talk to 1 of the 2 and get things handled. I ordered cks one time and there was a major mistake -- I called, staff took care of it and w/in a wk I had new cks that were correct. Like others, I keep track of what I spend via online, the hrs are wonderful (wish they would go bk to the org hrs, but I'm okay w/the new hrs), the staff is always courteous. I have and would recommend Woodforest to others. Re: bank rates/fees - in line w/other banks.
A Woodforest employee at the California, MD branch disclosed my home address to another Woodforest member. At present, this is all I am certain of, BUT, more may have been disclosed. I have been in contact with Woodforest National and the regional branch manager with responses similar to, "What can they do with an address and why would our employee do that?"
They seem to be missing the point that personal information or transaction details should never be disclosed to other individuals unless it is subpoenaed through the court process.
BE VERY CAUTIOUS WITH THIS BANK!!!
I will keep it brief BUT PLEASE PEOPLE DO NOT BANK WITH THIS BANK IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER OPTIONS!!!! Stay away from WOODFOREST!!!!!!! Rudest bunch of people I've ever encountered. I was told that my account was being closed because my mom had her payroll check direct deposited into my account. I was accused of stealing by their corporate manager Lisa Purtell. Then when I complained and confronted her about her rudeness and offensive accusations she flat out LIED and stated she didn't say it. OMG YOU LYING WITCH!!!! I threatened to call corporate and speak to a manager and she claimed she was the manager and there was no one over her....Again MORE LIES!!!! I guess I will be calling the OCC and the BBB to lodge a formal complaint. Woodforest is the worst with their ridiculous fees and terrible customer service. STAY AWAY FROM THIS BANK AND THEIR LIES AND DECEIT!!!!!
