Pros: Great personal customer service, an old fashioned meeting with the Bank Manager, a conversation about why you want the loan, helpful information and advice about the best options the Bank can offer and a friendly phone call from the same Manager to advise that the loan has been approved and is in your account. Cons: None that I can think of!

Greater Bank review
Overall rating 0 / 10
Service is terrible
For a person with over $5000 in savings, I can't even get a car loan. Being employed full time won't help either. You're happy to take $60 month in fees but not for a loan... Cheated comes to mind here. I could easily pay back $5000. I secured a loan elsewhere so we have no real need for Greater anymore.
This awesome product has the best options available the best rates and fantastic customer service. Although the big banks may be asking for a lot of money, this bank option is cheap and more convenient to all people in australia and america. The only fault of this bank is that it does not operate in all of the countries in the world but if you are in america or australia this is the most recommended bank in those countries. I highly recommended it.
The Greater had the lowest interest rate at the time I applied, excepting maybe the teachers credit union (about the same) I could pay the loan off at my own schedule, paying more when I please, monthly, weekly and even daily if I pleased. No additional charges for paying off early etc very flexible and reasonable. I could apply over the phone and internet, so there was less stress as I was working full time and couldn't get time off to visit a branch. The process only took a few days, so the loan was ready for when I needed it. Overall I was very satisfied.
Greater have a competitive interest rate as well as many beneficial optional extras on their car loans. Staff are friendly and helpful in all aspects, although finding an ATM anywhere other than a branch is incredibly difficult. Also I'm not happy about the fact that the newest celebrity endorsement is not an Australian, and therefore unlikely to have anything to do with GBS other than getting paid to endorse them.
