Fantastic Bank Loaning Experience

Great bank to work with, very prompt on answering the phone and making sure everything goes smoothly. I would highly recommend their construction loans.

An okay local bank from the 20th century

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.

Fix This Asap Please!!

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.

Horrible Bank All Around

Everything with this bank is a jump threw a hoop, rude people that did everything they could to push me out the door today and refused to count 25 dollars in quarters to put in my account. Told me to roll it myself so they could un roll it and count it themselves (the bank was empty and had several employees not doing anything) not to mention the 5 dollars they charge every month to send me a piece of paper saying I bank with them "statement" everything I've had to do with this bank has been a hassle and a headache
Might be some decent branches out there but I haven't found one yet. Would give 0 starts if I could closing my account asap before they come up with something else to charge me for.
