I have had nothing but stress from this bank since I opened the account. I cannot count the number of times I have heard the line, "I am so sorry for the inconvenience; but, we cannot...." If you value your sanity and desire a bank with accessibility as well as costumer service with genuine resolutions to your potential needs; go elsewhere.
I love WF's physical banks and people. I have always had trouble when I call their 877 number. I received an e-mail alerting me my account PW had been changed. Since I had not changed it I was concerned, waited for 10-12 minutes patiently to be told that was not from them. Five minutes later, OOPS! That is from us but it wasn't you on the account who changed their PW.
What? Someone else has a profile on my account? YUP. Help me, who is it?? We cannot tell you that. Ugh. So, you care enough to send me an e-mail but not to help me out when I call you?
The worst part? The part that really hurts? I've banked with WF since 1999, both personal and business but that didn't seem to matter.
We apologize for such a difficult experience. We would like to look further into your situation. If you’ll send an email with your contact information to SocialMedia@woodforest.com, we will get in touch with you ASAP.
I banked with wells Fargo before it was wells Fargo, it was Wachovia back then. From 2008-2013 NONE of the tellers took the time to remember regulars. The moment I made the switch to Woodforest I felt like family. The tellers may not know me by name but they know my face. They ask about my day and I know at least one on a personal level. ( I know about her family, she knows about mine; we swapped funny stories during my account setup).
At any other bank, most tellers hate to see you coming. At woodforest they welcome you. I feel comfortable with woodforest. When I have questions about my account I dont have to go to a branch and ask those questions, I dont even have to call customer service and wait for hours for a quick quick answer, I call the branch directly and talk to a person who pulls up my account, looks at my name, and remembers who I am. I'm not a business transaction, I have a friend on the other side of the counter, is how I feel everytime I set foot on that little kiosk. :)
