They Know What They Are Doing

This institution performed well when I needed a wiretransfer.  They understand what a domestic intermediary bank is and how to execute instructions correctly.  Unlike some institutions, Collee did not attempt to charge for foreign wire because ultimate payee was foreign.  I deal with many banks and am happy with this institutes service.  I never have problem reaching live persons.  2.55% interest is not bad either. I recommend Collee Bank.

As A Former Employee.....

Wow.. I'm surprised & yet delighted to have come across this banking blog/website. Unfortunately, all of the above postings about Coulee Bank's negative image are pretty much true. Because so many people have either left or been fired this past year, I'm comfortable to now confirm as a past employee that this place is terrible. They:
Openly threatened to give co-workers a "bad recommendation" for quitting/looking for a better job. La Crosse supervisor (for all branches) significantly cut back weekly hours for "FULL" time and part time workers without explanation – typical.  Deny any benefits for part time workers (basic health insurance, vacation, sick time, 401K) - NOTHING Used personal feelings and emotions while calculating "worthless" quarterly bonuses for employees. Still today has a shortage of employees….. Too many long lines for customers – very true, no doubt. Onalaska VP has yelled at employees to the point of crying... "They are always right, you're always wrong." Head of human resources is useless-- any complaint/request/concern in the workplace is not kept secret and turned over to management. AKA: You can't stand up for yourself if there is a workplace issue and have an ally in management at Coulee Bank. The head of HR is pointless - she serves the wants of anything management says and has even threatened employees to "shut up or leave."  This is just a short list of how Coulee Bank and their poor treatment of employees. Fortunately I'm no longer in the LAX area and feel okay posting about this. This is real, this is serious, and this is everyday life for workers at Coulee Bank. When shopping for banks, please consider the corporate friendliness and working conditions for bank’s employees. As a first hand witness, I strongly suggest choosing a different local community bank in La Crosse or credit union. SHAME ON COULEE BANK! 

Denied Account

Posted by: LazyGuy | Mar 31, 2011

I went through all the account requirements and applied for the account online today and my application was accepted online, but later received a message saying that my account was not approved.

"Thank you for applying for our Rewards Checking Account. Coulee Bank will only accept Rewards Checking applications from those applicants residing in the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. Thank you for your interest in Coulee Bank", Ellen.

I am from New Jersey, but no where in the account requirements, I read about residency requirements. The online application also did not stop me from applying, I do not know why they set it up that way. Is there anything I can do about this? I feel that my credit report was unnecessarily pulled for an account that they knew were going to deny.

I just finished reading some of the posts regarding employees....I have been an employee for a year and a half or so. I have not witnessed the things posted, but I think most work places have some good and some bad.  I thought I would share my experience being an employee here.   When I bring a concern, be it personal or work related, I'm listened to and when I have needed to change my work hours around, they have been very flexible.  I feel like I matter here to the management.  I'm part time and don't expect full time benefits but still do get some perks that are offered to all employees. I enjoy most of my co-workers and feel like we all work hard and are also willing to pitch in when there is a gap of an employee or a project that is taking a lot of time and effort.  Last but not least, the Human Resource person is excellent.  The last thing I would of ever said is "they are worthless."  It's guite the opposite, in fact.
