“Horrible!”  (I was at the Columbia Gateway branch)

This is a piss-poor excuse for a bank. Don't go there.

It started with trying to open an account online, easy enough you would think. After requesting proof of address, which was no problem, they emailed me and told me the document I sent did not have my name on it when they must have been blind because it was right there big and bold. So I emailed them and told them to return my checks and that I would just open the account in a branch in person. In a few days, no checks were returned but they apparently opened the account anyway (supposedly without having my address verified). Not to mention getting my address wrong on the checks.

And then, I went in to the branch to deposit a check, brought all my legal paperwork for the person I am a guardian over (we're talking original power of attorney and original guardianship paperwork with original court seal and judge's signature on it!) and the manager started seriously making things up that I needed! (Mind you, this was for a $40 check). He said they have to make sure I'm not committing fraud and I gave him COURT DOCUMENTS, LEGAL DOCUMENTS showing that I had the legal right to do banking as a guardian for this person and he refused. He then told me I needed to either bring the incapacitated person in (that would be a feat!) or get a notarized letter that she is not dead! WTFlock!?!?!? I seriously think this man was just making this stuff up! Needless to say, I have taken my banking elsewhere.

I had a similar experience at the gateway branch. But I've gotten excellent service at the Columbia town center branch.

I started banking with Bank of American and they turned out to be a great bank, until I had an issue. I changed over to The Columbia Bank and it was a good company. After a few weeks, I stopped into my neighborhood Columbia Bank Office in Wilde Lake Village Center and I was welcomed with warm arms.

I started talking to the tellers and they are great people. Soon I changed and started talking to the branch mangers and they have turned out to be great close friends. If I EVER have an issue with banking, I know they can and will help me deal with any issue I bring to them that relates to banking. I have never had such a great experience with a business and I don't think I can find many other places like that.

I tired to work with other offices like I did the WL Branch, but they were not as receptive, open, warm, or caring. I suggest every friend of mine to not only use The Columbia Bank, but to specifically go to the WL Branch office for one of the best receptions EVER for a customer!

I promise you, go there, and begin a conversation with them. You will like what you learn about them and yourself.
