I deal with people from the mortgage division and they are the dumbest human beings that I have ever dealt with. I'm not just talking about 1 or 2 people. Everyone in that company is an idiot. I would NEVER invest in Peoples for that reason.
We get it Tiero - customer service.
"please pay attention to what I am saying, because I don't want to keep repeating myself" - you can be annoying but at the same time amusing.
and what would be wrong with doing that? It doesn't matter if I was buying $1,000,000 worth of Microsoft or if I was buying 1 share of a $5 stock. Not everyone who invests is a multi-millionaire.
please pay attention to what I am saying, because I don't want to keep repeating myself.
first of all, there is nothing wrong with having one place to do all of your banking if it is the most convenient thing to do.
I was talking about that guy being rude and unprofessional to me on the phone. Stop trying to presume to tell me what I would or would not have done.
I was a Peoples Bank customer and I did not deserve that kind of service, and I had every right to be angry. That kind of customer service may be appropriate in the company that you work for, but a company that advertises that they have quality customer service, or what is the phrase they use, "if you think it's important, we do too", for them to be like that to ANYBODY is wrong
I am talking about customer service here, I am not talking about my personal investment decisions
"and FYI, I was looking around for a place to do some investing, and after hearing about their services, I called them. I wanted to get the stock price so that I could decide how many shares I wanted to buy of that stock if you really must know"
you are the biggest retard I have ever read on a message board. just looking around, deciding where to put all your cash. all $500. my broker, can you give me a quote Intel? deal...get me 20 shares.
but please don't go away. you are really funnier than most of the comedians on comedy central.
You make no sense whatsoever......why were you getting a quote if you weren't interested in opening an account?
Like I said, I doubt that you were ready to open a brokerage account then and know for a fact that you aren't ready now. Stick with the CDs. : )
chinacatrider, you definitely have issues
I feel like I am speaking Swahili or something. It was a teller at the branch that suggested that I call them
and FYI, I was looking around for a place to do some investing, and after hearing about their services, I called them. I wanted to get the stock price so that I could decide how many shares I wanted to buy of that stock if you really must know
but after the service they gave me, there was no way I was going to give them a dime of my money. Not to mention that they were charging enormous commissions for trades and you can't even do dividend reinvestment unless it's enough to buy a full share, I found that out later on
and it doesn't matter if I have one account there or 50, I am just as much a customer as you or anyone else and that guy had no right to hang up on me like that, it was rude and unprofessional
if he had worked for ME and did that, I would have fired him right on the spot, no question about it
and he said that I was in left field... gee whiz
no, not a brokerage CD, I wanted to get a stock price
the guy was rude, and trust me, if I had complained, he would have gotten into trouble, I would have made sure of it
I highly doubt that you were ready to open a brokerage account with them.
Complaining to the manager wouldn't do any good as the individual's job is to help their current client base. You weren't a client at People's Securites, thus the reason why you didn't get any service.
Someone at the branch should have been able to give you a quick quote. What were you getting a quote on, a brokered CD? : )
oh, so you know all 4000+ employees at that company? How can you make a blanket statement like that because of a bad experience you had with the mortgage company? I agree that there are some people that work there that don't have the brains they were born with, but that doesn't mean that everyone in the whole company is like that. You will see that in every company, no matter who you deal with, you will always run into idiots somewhere
Best investment I ever made. I started buying Peoples stock when they went public in 1990. I have some shares with a cost basis of less than a dollar, so you can't tell me it is not a good company. I am enjoying a very nice retirement because of People's Bank. Amen.
It's not just one department. I'm a long time depositor & stock holder.
Some of my past issues with them:
A check bounced on my (then) fiance's account (she received a check that was NSF so it came back) - I was not on this account at all. They took the money out of my account (which she was not on). The only thing linking any of the accounts is that we had a joint account to pay for the rent, etc. They screwed the pooch on that one.
I was cashing in some savings bonds. They decided to report the buyers SS# as the one getting the cash for all of the bonds instead of mine to the feds (the bonds were from multiple people and the buyer that they reported it to was deceased).
Nope, the stupidity of Peoples runs all the way through the bank. The only thing they have going for them is 7-day banking at stop & shop and for some reason this stock keeps going up.
