Very Competitive

Since this is a Credit Union and not a bank, you know that they wont be trying to squeeze every penny they can out of you for their service. Some banks are starting to have fees as a result of other fees. They are the best brick and mortar place you will find in the St. Louis area. They always have the highest rates on savings/checking accounts and the lowest on loans. My sister works for them, and she said they base their rates off of the best in the St. Louis area. Nationally, they may not be the best, but they are pretty high up there.

Great Credit Union

My husband and I have been with First Community Credit Union for almost 3 years, and love it. The employees are always very friendly inside the bank, and also if you call into customer service. They always have been very helpful with any situation that we may have. We also have a car loan through them, and they were able to complete our car loan application process very fast. We were able to get the car that we wanted and worked for our family. First Community also has a few branches inside the local Wal-Mart Stores, and it is nice to be able to do banking on Saturday and Sunday also when you work normal hours. I would recommend First Community to anyone who was looking for a new bank.

First Community Credit Union is a great alternative to traditional banking.

I joined First Community Credit Union years ago after hearing great things about it and then going to the one near my neighborhood. At the time I was new to St. Louis and had just begun a new job. I was able to arrange to have my salary automatically deposited and was issued checks. I also started a savings account and was able to have a prescribed amount placed in savings with each paycheck. My checking account accrued interest if I kept the balance above $1000. There was an ATM at the Credit Union and at its other branches. The Credit Union did offer other services which were a plus to me but I will say that the pitfalls were lack of ATM's when traveling though proper planning prevented problems.

Online only banks are better...

I still have a savings account with First Community, but I've long since relocated my checking. I've definitely incurred large fees from this credit union before. They've waived a couple in good faith, but then again, that involves a lot of time spent on the phone and effort and of course the luck of the draw regarding the attitude of the representative you get. I'd say that for someone that needs a brick and mortar location that this is still a good CU. On the plus side it is fairly quick to get someone on the phone, and when you do, they're located in a local US call center. So that is nice. For my needs, though, I've found a better fit.

My whole family and I have bank accounts and my in laws have a business account of 35 years. This year they decided to pull the plug after repeated issues going in to the weekends. A lot of their computers would “ malfunction” on Friday’s or Saturday mornings and end up screwing you for the whole weekend. Then on Monday they would easily be fixed. Like that’s a little sketch to me. Not to mention depositing a 4 digit pay check into another members account by mistake and couldn’t use my account for three days because they were tracking it down, and of course they did that on a Friday night. Also shutting down my wife’s account because they had “ tried” reaching my wife about interesting charges on our account. We received no phone call, no email, and no text while we were on vacation. Super embarrassing to have to show your waiter your whole bank account information to prove that we have enough to pay. Last but not least the card limits.... you are not my mom. It’s my money, do not put a limit of how much I can spend or pull out. They started me at only being able to spend $200 a day. With 3 kids and a wife. Not impressed. This Credit Union is a joke and I am tired of being embarrassed by them honestly. Trust goes with respect and especially when dealing with my time and money. I would rather risk my money with a normal bank. DO YOUR JOBS.
