Woodforest National Bank Informative - Avoid Woodforest National Bank
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I really hate this bank!! The worst bank ever! Every time I would go to deposit a check, they needed a manager for an over ride. And half the time there was never a manager to be found! Then they have to call around to other Woodforest branches till they find someone with over ride authorization. This process holds up the line and makes me late for work! I have even had checks put on hold for up to 14 business days!! I could see the reason for this if I was a hot check writer. But I have never bounced a check ever! And I have plenty of money in my account. They tell me I can take the check to the bank it's drawn off of. And have it cashed there, and then bring the cash back to deposit. WHAT???? If I am going to go to that much trouble, I am just going to open an account at that bank!! These checks I deposit are not even over 600.00 The tellers are usually really rude. And I had to deal with the regional VP at one time. I quickly found out that she was just a woman on a power trip! She treated me like a piece of gum she had just stepped in. I am not one to complain. I know how to treat people! When you work in , or have worked in, customer service, you tend to be more patient with people. I would rather climb through razor wire, with my hair on fire and put my money in a coffee can and bury it under a fire ant bed in my back yard before I would even consider putting it back in Woodforest National "so called" Bank. I wouldn't recommend this bank to anyone. In fact , when clients ask me about banks,I tell them how pathetic this bank is. And sometimes I even go into the whole"razor wire , ant bed speel". Then I recommend my bank.
