I have had experience with several banks in my home town and area, however First Security Bank (unique to Arkansas) is one of the most pleasant, professional banks I have ever dealt with in my life. I currently have a free checking account with this company and I could not be happier with it. I am very pleased that here are no fees whatsoever associated with my account. I have only done business inside on a couple of occasions and was greeted with friendliness and professionalism each time. Most other times I make deposits or withdrawals at the drive-through window. No place is perfect, however I have never had a negative experience at First Security Bank. I can't speak to other areas of business such as Savings or IRAs, but the checking account experiences I have had I would recommend to anyone. It would be great if this company went national as courteous and professional as each employee has been every time I have done business there.
I have a checking account with First Security, a regional bank that has many locations spread throughout the state of Arkansas. I've had this account for about a decade; fees associated with it are typical when compared to similar local checking accounts, and the interest rates are fairly minimal. My experience with First Security has been generally good. Their phone customer service line has solid hours and low wait times; one of my issues with my statement was resolved over the line in under three minutes. Their other offerings in terms of accounts and investments tend to be fairly mediocre.
The only unfortunate quality that First Security has is their online account features. Their website is somewhat slow to use, and their Android application feels like a slower version of their website. Other local banks offer more tracking of accounts online than they do, as well. While First Security is a good bank overall don't use them if you highly value the online experience.
Turns out if you leave you account empty for 5 days THEY LITERALLY DELETE IT WITHOUT ANY WARNING. A fair warning should be mandatory. I may leave them entirely just because of this. It was my business account tied to my LLC. So all the paperwork and everything *poof* I will be know shifting everything to Lily. I just found this out. And I’m still fuming. But I’m dead serious. Just like my account…poof. I’m gone.
