Hi Wave As an ex-employee of the Coventry Building Society I would be interested to hear of any memories or experiences you have had over the years. As a child it always felt like there was no another option but the 'Economic' for banking. I remember it being a pretty big thing going to see the manager to open my first account. When I worked there I met many people who were coming up to retirement that had worked there since they left school, there was a real sense of community amongst the staff and the branch staff knew their customers really well. We always got lovely gifts at Christmas from some fantastic customers. I used to go to some customers houses to help them if they had problems going to the branch. I spent a few years working on the reception desk of the High Street branch and spent the majority of the time chatting away to customers, it was a brilliant job! Unfortunatley this changed and there was a move away from the more personal side to customer relations, by the time I left it just felt like working in any of the many impersonal high street banks that we now know.

Hi All Smile I don't and have never worked for a 'company'. For my sins I work in local government. Having said that 10 years ago I loved my job and enjoyed going in everyday. Now due to all the cuts I hate it. I have 3 times as much to do and I'm expected to take a pay cut to continue. There are lots of things that remind me of the 'good old days'. Without meaning to sound cheesy - having lived in various locations around England and Wales - the fact that I can leave my front door and instantly be in some of the most beautiful countryside makes it all worth while Smile Paula
