I don't normally go on a corporate/establishment type rant (unless it's about work) but since I'm in this kinda mood this week, I'll rant about Barclays Bank.
In a nutshell, I called them 3 times this week with a view to opening a new account. Spoke to nice people at their call centre inIndia who said that someone would call me back to make a Saturday appointment.
Three occasions, nothing, nada, zip.
Well, since they obviously didn't want my business, I've gone elsewhere - hello HSBC!
My mate at work later confirmed that Barclays have AWFUL customer service, she has banked with them for many years and is seriously considering changing banks because of their abysmal service record.
Back to ranting about work - some emergency meeting has been called this afternoon, I've no idea what it's about but it can't be good news! :-(
