Outstanding Bank Experience

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.

First Security Bank-Arkansas Outperforms The Rest

I have used several banks, and still do, however First Security Bank right here in Arkansas seems to really stand out among the others I have experience in using. One stand-out feature offered by First Security Bank is their free checking. Although many banks offer free checking accounts these days, First Security Bank was the first bank I learned about that offered this service. The staff always greets you with a smile and act very friendly. In the event that you must wait in line (which is rare) the staff completes your request in a timely manner. Moreover, First Security Bank gave me my very first home loan. This truly made a dream come true for my wife and I. First Security Bank has a special place in our hearts and I would recommend this bank to anyone.
