I went to open a bank account because my work place recently required direct deposits, so I went to Asian Bank. There were little to no customers there when I arrived, so I waited for less than a minute and got to talk with one of the representatives. She was extremely nice and went over all the checking account options that I had. I went with the basic checking. She said there was only a minimum balance of $100, which is reasonable, and that that I will get my first 3 checks for free! She then took me through the whole process and within 20 minutes, I was done. Very happy and pleased with the experience. She also told me about mobile banking and how there is even an app for it. I use it a lot since I don't have the time to go to the bank physically all the time. It may not be the biggest bank, but it definitely work out for me.
I opened up a basic checking account with the Asian Bank one year ago. I needed a 100 dollar minimum deposit and the representative told me that the daily minimum requirement is 100 dollars. If I went below the requirement, I would have to pay a 6 dollar fee. That was reasonable. The representative was friendly and opened up my account in about 15 minutes. She also asked me if anyone referred me to the bank because they were doing a referral program and both the referrer and the account opener would get an extra 25 bucks.
One week later, I wanted to do online banking so I called the bank to see how I can get started. The representative over the phone told me to use my social security number as both the username and password. It didn't work so the representative told me to go to their branch and set up online banking. I went there and the representative set it up in under 5 minutes. He then printed out a paper with a temporary username and password. He told me that if I had any problem, I can always come back. When I went home and tried to access my account online, it worked! Overall, I had a pleasant experience with my local bank. Nice customer service and very easy to set up an account.
