I just stumbled across this board looking for my state after reading todays Fribble. After reading everything that was posted I have a couple of comments.
We have been involved with this company since 1974 when we bought our first home in Washington so I feel like they are part of our family. Well, you know about family. Sometimes they have to be tolerated and accommodated. Over the years we've continued to keep our savings and transactions AND recomend their services. Would I invest in the Company? No.
Here are my reasons for what they are worth.
The branches have become less than professional looking and the customer service has become what you would expect from a poorly managed fast food restaurant. I began noticing this trend about three years ago, I thought it was just because my favorite teller had retired but in other locations customer service doesn't seem to be a priority either. Now maybe this isn't a good reason for not investing, I don't know but I certainly would dig deeper before I decided to own a part of their business.

What do you mean explain what you mean?
What I said was Washington Federal 'appears', from a consumer viewpoint, to be getting sloppy

uh yeah
So, they're not cleaning up after they spill things on the floor.

I had just asked if you would explain what you were talking about, instead, lacking the intellectual capacity or else plainly a crude person, you answered with a lame remark. Go to the Yahoo! boards please.

Now who is being rude? My only intention was to just add some information that I thought might be helpful to someone thinking of investing in Washington Federal. TO ME the offices and staff APPEAR to be not as professional as they had been, period. It was only an observation and I did say it was just mine. Now, I don't know if this is a outward sign that the company is beginning to fall apart because I haven't done any research but if I were going to become a shareholder I would look deeper. In fact I am a little uncomfortable having any of our savings there at the moment and I am looking for somewhere else. Now if that sounds intellectually challanged maybe I am.

Hi! For what it's worth, in Richard E. Band's August newsletter, WFSL is the #1 S&L pick. He cites these reasons: among the nation's most profitable thrifts,
net worth equal to 13% of assets, and steady dividend growth since going public in 1982.

I came to this board to see what Fools had to say, as I was considering a buy.
