There is an older lady on the drive thru lanes in Tuscumbia that is adorable! She goes out of her way to talk with you while your transaction is being processed. She even had a small treat for my yorkie!
First Metro Bank is one of the very few "hometown" banks left! When you call you get a human!
First Metro cares about its customers. When I lost my job, I went in and talked with my loan officer about the situation. They worked with me and I will never bank anywhere else!
we started using them at the beginning of the year, everything s5arted out great except for my debit card was late and i didn't recieve a pin# until 2 months after i got my card! well, we took out a personal loan, made our payments early every month. my husband was recently starting a new job and were barely a few days late, and they went in our account took out money didn't notify us and charged us with a ton of overdraft fees that were not our fault. the customer service is aweful, excuses being my computer cant access that information. i have talked to several people be very rude rather than help you. i do NOT recommend this bank. they do not process your purchases so they can purposely charge and overdraft fee, then will not help or explain why they didnt process your purchases when they were supposed to. if you want to keep your hard earned money do NOT use this bank.
