There When You Need Them

Posted by: Sarah1438 | Jun 8, 2015

Community Wide Credit Union has gone above and beyond to help me out. Late one Friday night, I found myself going through a separation with my husband. He told me that he was going to drain our joint account. This was the same day that my $4000 tax refund had just been deposited. I immediately called Community Wide and they were amazing in helping me out. The woman I spoke with helped me open a new checking account over the phone and was able to transfer all my money into it so that he could no longer ruin me financially. She was my savior that night! She really went above the call of duty and did more for me than I would ever expect a bank employee to do. I know it was her job to open that account for me, but the way she handled the entire situation and looked into all the options and helped me decide the best thing to do for me was wonderful. I've also been just as pleased with the service I have received in my branch as well. Every employee has always done their best to get me in, out and on my way. Whether I'm making a deposit, withdrawal, or looking for information about a loan, my experience has been great. They definitely have me as a customer for life!

Customer Review of Community Wide

Posted by: Beth2 | Apr 26, 2015

I had a checking account with Communitywide for over four years, but I closed it when I moved out of the area. Overall the experience was good. The people who worked in the bank were friendly, caring, and willing to help whenever possible. The only thing that bothered me about the experience was that the hours were terrible. They closed at 4 so there was no way to get there after work. If I ever needed to do anything, I would have to get up early on Saturday. I also prefer banks that have ATMs, and they only had one at one location that I recall not at all of them. I also would prefer a credit union that offers more incentives. I would have considered a savings account there if there had been a reward for doing so. The bank that I have a savings account with now offered 20 dollars to start one. All in all though it was a positive experience.

No Response!

I found about their high CD rates online. Though according to their eligibility requirements I'm not qualified to be a member of this FCU I thought I will check on to make sure. After unsuccessful attempts to reach them via phone which I blamed on limited work hours (that was not a case!) I sent an e-mail to the address they have provided on their website. After 10 days of waiting I didn't get any reply and I don't know the answer. It's too bad but I guess they rely only on their branches to deal with customers!?

Worst Financial Institution Ever

Community Wide Credit Union is the place to go if you enjoy being placed on hold for 20- 30 minutes every time you call. The people in the loan dept. flat out lied about sending our vehicle title. Told us twice they mailed it and when we finally received it 27 days later, the day they signed it was still 5 days after the last date they told us it was mailed. They are extremely rude and unprofessional from the time they pick up the phone. I would never recommend them and I hope they go out of business!!!

Don't Bother With Loans

My husband and I have a car loan through this bank, and it has not been pleasant. We're 2 years in, and each month the payment comes out earlier and earlier. It is ridiculous. The payments aren't due until the 24th, yet today I look at my checking account and we are negative again because of them. This is a full week early! Don't bother wasting your time or money here, because the interest rates are pretty terrible as well, especially given the hassles we have had to deal with. They also have zero online access to our account, which is insane in 2016.

Terrible customer service.

To be honest I started using this branch because I thought keeping my funds in a smaller bank would be safer for me.I was very wrong and ended up leaving the bank after many bad experiences. This branch only has a few locations which is very inconvenient to someone like me ho travels a great deal and would like to visit bank tellers in person. When i do get a change to visit on of the locations in person, I find that the staff is very unhelpful and rude to me. I thought that maybe it was just the one branch that i always go to but I was wrong, they all have a very negative attitude. i had an issue with one my bill payments not going through and I explained to me that I actually made it and it was taken out of my account, but there computer system did not show any record of this which got me so anger that i reported them to the BBB and only after I had done this did you refund me and made sure I wasn't held accountable to my Bill account I was trying to pay. After this experience I had to leave the bank and place my money somewhere else.
