Horrible Customer Service If Calling In

I recently lost my vehicle to a head-on collision where the other party was 100% at fault.  Every time I have called GECU it takes more than 6 minutes to answer a call, and I'm usually on the phone for about 20 minutes if I have a question, with only a few minutes actually spent talking to someone.  They refused to delay payments or stop interest. They don't have a branch close to me, so not sure why the dealership picked them.  They refuse to make a simple note to state that additional principal payments were to be applied to the rediculous $175 loan/application fee.  I will never have another account with them and will gladly pay a higher interest rate on future vehicle loans to avoid GECU.

Great Interest Rates, Convenient, Great Service

I opened an account at GECU at the end of last year. I found their interest rates on savings to be the best in the Cincinnati area. May move other credit union accounts here because the rates are so much better.

They also have real true electronic bill payment and not mailing of checks.

Their service has been very good and they have a number of office locations in the area. The closest branch is located in a local hospital and the access is very easy.

I have used the phone support when I first opened the account and it was prompt and very helpful. They resolved a problem quickly and to my complete satisfaction.
