The transition from Woodstore Credit Union to Qualstar, like any merger, can be fraught with alignment issues.
Systems, processes, cultures, people, etc…I’ve experienced some of these issues from a customer perspective coming from Woodstone as well.
However, I had a very pleasant customer experience on 8/3/2018 with Falana Clark, the Branch Manager in Kent.
She helped with a deposit, then listened to my concerns such as is there a member CU closer to my home they take deposits, does Qualstar have a Certified Financial Planner or equivalent for financial services? Falana handled each of these requests delightfully, with a desire to help.
She even helped me with testing the Kent ATM with my account number to ensure deposit capabilities. In addition, she personally contacted Qualstar’s Investment Advisor at the Federal Way branch to determine his financial accreditation’s and experience while I was at the branch. She is now the primary reason I plan on staying with Qualstar.
Please pass along my compliments to her. She did a wonderful job and is a credit to your organization.
