Long Lines in Banks
“Never, ever try to use any bank in Xujiahui area”, warned Wendy.
This is true. Last time Wendy went to Bank of China and got a service ticket. It stated that there are 180 people waiting before her.
One and half hour later, when she is back, there are still 150 people before her. At 4:00, when she is back again, her number just passed, and she has to get back to the bank the second day again.
The bank is full of people who have waited hours to deposit or withdraw money.
The online service of Bank of China does not really work, so there are not many options for its customer.
For me, banks are not different. The most common thing is, if you go to one bank, you will swear not to go to this bank again for the rest of your life. I did so for ICBC (ICBC – A Customer’s Experience), and other banks (Service Quality of Banks in China (Shanghai)).
