    My husband and I have used the Heritage Bank (formally a building society)for many years and have found the staff polite and easy to talk to especially in times of great need emotionally and financially. The branch manager has also taken great care to make sure we got the best product for us in personal loans as well as a mortgage that we could afford. We have told friends and family about their products and recommended Heritage Bank to them.

    The staff customer service is really friendly but product knowledge is a bit hit and miss. Each one has been positive that they have organised every detail correctly and I leave feeling happy but the product does not always work as described. It took 3 goes and a call to the mobile help site to get things properly arranged. Everything works well now though. Should it be that hard?

    The in store banking is terrible, only ever have 2 staff at windows. If you need anything other than money the staff member has to come onto the floor to introduce you to a help person. This only leaves 1 on the window a minimum of 15 minute wait time to put money in the bank. The debit card has a $6 monthly fee to put my money in and take it out. I do not recommend the ANZ bank.

    Heritage Bank is a bank for a person like me who doesn't like hidden or extra costs associated with most visa cards. I like that i can use it anywhere but as I'm constantly moving around interstate, I'm sad I can't access the walk in branch services other banks have with their country-wide service. Still, the call centre has been good to me.

    I have had my debit card for a long time but had not been using it except for on line. The pin was difficult to remember and I kept forgetting which button to press either credit or cheque. I went into a local branch and was talking with a customer service person for another matter and then started telling them about my lack of using my debit card. This person listened very patiently and then offered to change the pin to one that I can remember easily and then arranged that I could get a pay-wave card so I didn't have to wonder what button to press. I had talked to someone a few years ago when I first got my debit card and they just suggested that I try to remember which button to press (credit/cheque) and sign but no other offer to help me. The big change in help has, 1. got me using my card heaps and 2. renewed my faith in my bank 10 fold

    Our main bank is ANZ and has been for 35 years. I have always found staff at any branch happy, helpful, knowledgable and willing to assist. They always give an opinion when asked and often come up with an idea better than our thoughts. It is obvious they have their customers best interest at heart and never make us feel awkward or a nuisance. I have only ticked one option above but we have home loan, investment loan, personal loan, credit card, insurance with ANZ and even our kids have set themselves up with ANZ accounts etc. we recently had an issue overseas with an ANZ travel card and the problem was sorted in an instant. When we returned home we went into our local branch and without even asking we're credited for phone calls charged to us through our hotel while sorting the issue. Service is simply fantastic !

    Recently having celebrated 50 years service to the local community, the OCU truly lives up to the aspirations of its founders and the expectations of present day members in being thoroughly community based and community focused. Staffed by our family, friends and neighbours it has the atmosphere of an old time corner store. Yet they have the skills and technology to connect us to every aspect of the international financial world. In the OCU you definitely have the best of all financial worlds. They are as helpful, eager and diligent in assisting with the smallest of transactions as with those involving a life long commitment.
