Educational employee credit union

EECU is a great place to bank with. Friendly cashiers, free checking, and great rates on loans. What I really like about EECU is that no matter what branch you go to there is always a small bank setting that makes you feel right at home.

Educational Employees Credit Union

Despite the exclusive sounding name, this community bank is very easy to join. You don't have to actually be an educational employee, if you have a friend or relative who is, or even a friend of a friend, that will usually be enough to qualify you for membership. There are 3 branch offices in and around the Fresno area and more importantly plenty of EECU atm machines. You may worry with a smaller bank that you will be spending extra on fees by being forced to use other atm machines, but that is not the case here. I find the locations good and I am always able to easily find an EECU atm machine when out around town. The service is what you may expect from a small town bank, they are always very polite and have always been very helpful in assisting me. Their online banking feature is useful the website is easy to navigate. I've used loan services with this bank and it was a good experience, they were willing to work with me and get me a great rate on my auto loan. I've also met with their staff financial advisor for help in starting an investment portfolio , a great experience overall. I can highly recommend this bank, they are offer competitive rates and online banking, but if you prefer the 'human' factor over an online transaction you won't be disappointed. There are good, friendly people working there, they really will make you feel welcomed and like this is a place you can stay for the long-term.
