As I recently moved to a new area I was in search of a new lcal bank. My parents were already members with First Citizens and so it was natural for me to join as well. I met with a representative and had my checkings account set up quickly. Beyond that not much was different then other institutions. However, two thinkgs stick out in my mind. I needed a new debit card, as my old one was no longer readable, and it was sent to me quickly. Also, the banks new app allows depositing a check by simply taking a picture of it with my phone...very convenient.
Opened an account with them online yesterday, got everything setup for use today after they sent me their approval e-mails and then I was prevented from accessing my online account.
I called them and they said they were closing my account because of something found with Chexsystems. I just got my Chexsystem report last week and there is nothing negative in it so it has to be because of the inquiries made by other banks/ credit unions I've opened this year. My credit is excellent with all the major credit reporting agencies.
Since they also ran a hard credit pull to sign up with them, that will further count against me somewhere down the line. Not worth it. Will never deal with these clowns again.
I live in SC and I have been a customer of the SC First Citizen's for years. With the SC First Citizen's I received amazing customer service, I was made to feel like as a customer I mattered. Recently the SC First Citizen's merged with the NC First Citizens. Since the merger I have been charged fees for NSF checks when the money was in the available balance, reason being NC First Citizen's policy is to charge fees if the money is not posted and the electronic deposits are not posted for at least 24 hours. So when I asked for these fees to be reversed, I was advised by the branch and customer service that this is not their job. They no longer do "those little customer service things". Fees are charged when using the ATM for mini statements without disclosure the fees will be charged. Messages on the website go over 28 days without a response. My bank which I loved and recommended to everyone has turned into a nightmare and I would not recommend to anyone, I have received horrible customer service and fees for no apparent reason. Stay away from this bank
3 months ago I opened a basic checking and was told that it was free checking if I had direct deposit. This was true until I reduced my direct deposit amount with them and all of a sudden I started getting hit with an 8 dollar a month service fee. There are too many banks out there that offer free checking without a direct deposit. I figured I would give this bank a try since they brag about customer service and the person to person experience but I quickly found out that you have to have the makings of a rockerfella or a Hefner to get that treatment. Calling for information about your account to their national office in Raleigh NC can cost you after your first call. Try 5 bucks a call. I've switch to a credit union and it is truly free checking with no hidden fees for statements and or information inquired about my account. If you want a good ole' boy bank then this old school bank is for you.

I opened a money market account in June with a guaranteed rate of 1% for the first 6 months. I noticed in the 4th month’s statement that the interest was not what it should be and the rate was noted as .2 %. I called the bank representative that opened the account for me and was told that he would get it fixed. After several phone calls, a half dozen emails and 5 weeks, it is still not corrected. The representative says he need to get an "area executive’s" approval (who seems to be always on vacation or in meetings) and the email response I get is to call the local branch. No one is taking responsibility to fix this problem. At this point they owe me a lot of interest. I have just opened an online account and will transfer the funds.
