My experience of the Yorkshire Building Society

I have had a regular savings account with this bank for many years and it has retained the very favourable rates of interest that I started with despite the rates having gone down considerably. They have a branch in the City where I live and the staff are efficient, friendly and welcoming when I call to update books. I like the personal contact and do not use the internet for this account at all.

Yorkshire Building Society - better if you live in Yorkshire!

Customer service is generally good. The staff are helpful but not pushy. If I have a criticism it's that in my experience, when they have a new account that may be of benefit to the customer they don't tell you about it - and when you ask not all the staff seem aware of it. I've recently moved from Yorkshire to Kent and am finding that the lack of branches where I live is a problem. I used to live within 7 miles of 5 branches - now my nearest branch is 17 miles away and the next nearest 45 miles.

Helpful staff, good choice of accounts

Interest rates not good (not their fault!)

Personal touch and excellent customer service

It's a building society that cares about its members and the local and wider community. Excellent staff and customer service. There's always a smile and a friendly face to greet you and the staff go out of their way to advise without any "hard sell". It's a pleasure doing business with them. I have taken advise on several financial matters and I would be more than happy to recommend anyone to join the society. It's the little touches such as giving you the option of you giving any pence in your account to charity at the end of the financial year! What a lovely gesture!

Excellent staff customer care

Not enough branches!

Best ISA rate at time

I switched our Isa to a new provider as the rates for new customers are almost always better than for existing customers, the switching over was simple and easy and apart for an issue with the rate i applied for being changed but for a better one which all went seamlessly there were no problems. Not sure how long i will stay with them after fixed rate ends

Easy online service with ISA account

I was transferred from egg and found the process simple and straightforward and am more comfortable having a building society account than a Plc. The online experience is simple and crisp. I have only had to call once when I locked myself out of the account and it was very simple to reset, with friendly service on the phone.

Good service

Low interest rate
