First Financial satisfied customer

Posted by: Tobin | Aug 7, 2015

Although my local physical branch closed down and the remaining branches are inconveniently located, this credit union shares access with tons of other credit unions' ATM's, so that hasn't been a problem. And since I do most of my banking online, and their system is adequate, I haven't needed a physical branch anyway. If I have any issues, I can always contact customer service by phone and they take care of everything. I recently took out an auto loan and the process was simple and easy over the phone and through email. I've always had helpful and cheerful experiences with customer service. I've had terrible experiences with several of the major banks in the past, which is why I switched to First Financial Credit Union in the first place. I've been a satisfied customer ever since.

Beware Of This Credit Union

Poorly run, poorly managed, extremely high turn over in staff and management. Expenses and overhead are out of control. Very difficult to get a loan approved and funded. Getting a simple task done from the call center is a ordeal mainly due to management and staff unprepared and unable to perform the tasks. They staff lacks training and tenure with the company to handle the most remedial function. Beware, do not open an account or take a loan out with this poorly managed credit union. You will regret it.
