That happens entirely too often!


Hey, at least you get a 15 second summary!

The best one is when you hang up and the phone rings at the next desk and you can tell from the conversation you can hear that your neighbor is getting the exact same question from the exact same person. Arghhhhh!

True. "This guy is mad because of a check hold, I think he's a #$%@#$%@^ and he called me bad names!" Well that's great, but it doesn't help me understand the problem...at all.

CSRs that fill in the name of the customer and account number and leave the rest of the form blank. When you send it back and make them call the customer, CSR goes ballistic because they think the form doesn't need all that on it. What??? We make forms up with a bunch of blanks because we have nothing better to do?

ha! That used to happen ALL. THE. TIME. at the FDIC. All of us review examiners sat on the same hallway, and you could hear the call moving down the line of offices.

Walden...I used to go through what you described..oh what a mess that can be...especially regarding loan products that don't exist! eek

Using a form that makes NO SENSE just because it's on the system for use (when it might be meaningful) and then when the customer questions it...the LO says...It's compliance - just sign it! mad

(said form is no longer in use. smirk whistle )

Or when a LO tells a customer that the compliance officer requires a certain form. Ah no, that would be federal law that requires that.

OK
When an LO (or anybody else) wants to have a conversation/argument about the logic behind any regulation (as if i was sitting in on the congressional subcommittee). Um, i really don't know (or care) what the rationale was; i thought we complied because it's the law. I don't think telling an examiner that the flood regulations are stupid will head off the CMPs at the pass.

That happened to me today. After asking a question to me, the person called the person across the room from me (who told them the same thing that I did) & then they called another coworker (who told them the same thing....for the third time!).

#? On a conference call, you place your phone on hold so everyone has to hear the on-hold music/message and cannot hear each other.

I just hate it when that happens. Especially when it is staff that then SWEARS they were paying attention and you bust them. Grounds for a formal write up in the file....

i do this when the call loses focus and everyone starts rambling and talking over one another...really brings people back in focus...also do it when someone is long winded and repeating themself over and over and over and over and over and over...so, based on my 2 criteria, i'm likely doing this on every call i'm on

In a round-table discussion with the CEO intended for contructive ideas and questions, you go on and on about how wonderful the Bank is and lucky we all are to be employed here.
