Hours are M-F 8:30 to 4:00. That's it. No late or weekend hours. Use the atm? They won't post atm transactions for at least 2 days - even if you deposit cash. Their phone app is limited, often inaccurate and forget about photographing checks for deposit - doesn't exist. Want to grab some deposit slips to save time the next visit? They keep the slips behind the counter and will only let you have 1 at a time. No drive-through. Paychecks that aren't on direct deposit require a manager's signature in order to get it cleared in 2 days instead of 4 - if the manager isn't there, they won't even take your deposit, so you have to come back when the mgr. is there. I switched to a different bank that DOES have all of the above - like most modern banks. Much happier and much less inconvenienced now.
This bank isn't worth anything. The bank closes at 4pm; the average person clocks out between 4-5pm. The mobile app is a third party app so there are extra eyes into your account - basically saying someone other the bank and yourself have access to your accounts. You will not get any assistance after 4pm. Branch employees talk to you any kind of way and hang up the phone on you. No employees at any branch know anything. 1-800 number just sends your call to a branch, and it's only one person working the call center. All this in the first two months waiting on the third so I can close my account with no fees. This bank makes bank of America look like a fortune 500 company with no bags.
