HSBC, your opinions

I went in there to open a standard account. These guys are just like sales people. Do they work on commission or something? They're pretty much giving me what any other bank gives me but I just need to put a bunch more money sitting in their vaults (whatever little I wanted to put in).

They told me "the more money you put in, the more interest you can get." I told them "the more money I put in, the more money you will have in your pot to gain interest from". Isn't that how it works?

Anyway, frrom what I can see, they're just a bunch of sales people and I didn't see anything special about them. Your thoughts ?

We are having fits with them. They can't seem to get the simplest thing straightened out for us. Incompetents in my opinion.

I have had worse luck with Credit Unions. The one I used to belong constantly screwed up my accounts and I was always fighting with them over it. They were freaking clueless from top to bottom.
