Not The Easiest Place To Do Business

I was able to set up an account in one day. However, some of the policies make it hard to do business with Barksdale FCU. Even though they are part of the Shared Coop Branching Network, if you make a deposit at a shared branch, it has to sit for 5-10 business days before you can open a CD, while you can lose your rate if the CD rate changes.(Contrast this with Keesler FCU, which also has a hold policy but at least opens the CD and then puts a hold on that.) The only way to avoid this problem is to make a (costly) wire transfer. However, my institution sent the wire transfer out at 8:30 a.m At 4 pm the same day, the customer service rep I dealt with could not find it to open the CD, even though I had the wire number.

If you like terrible service, phone calls and emails trying to get replies that go unanswered, hours of wasted time, then this bank is for YOU!!!!

Worst Credit Union Anywhere

 Beware using this credit union for any loans even if you are miltary and using an allottment they will still mess it up and put a black mark on your credit even when you prove it was their fault!!!! Any business that can mess up an automatic payment is pretty bad!!! Just beware before using Barksdale Bank and Credit Union!!!! Only chose the 1 star because I had to.
