Learn Customer Service Please

Posted by: FLI | Feb 15, 2015

My experience with Cathay Bank is poor, in particular with their branch located at Diamond Bar, California. I'd say they offer zero customer service because the employees don't really care about the customers. Let me give an example: As a Chinese American bank, most of their employees are Chinese Americans, so once I went there to deposit some cash, the clerk that attended me gave me a really bad attitude as I handed her a stack of cash, she told me that: you should organize your money before coming! Well, my money was organize (stacked firmly) but that was not her standard, she wanted every single bill to be categorized by their value, placed on the same side ( face of the bill) and orientation. Because apparently they don't use bill counting machines and is their company policy to organize the bills prior counting them by hand. So the clerk gave me a bad attitude because she doesn't feel like doing her job, so it becomes my responsibility to do her job prior coming to the bank. And let me tell you, that they don't even count right, she had to ask another clerk for help because she counted twice and the numbers came out different! What a joke, bad service and waste of time.
