Great Customer Service

Posted by: |

I joined AlaskaUSA 40 years ago, in the Philippines. Yes, they had a branch there. I have never lived in Alaska, Arizona or California, and have not set foot in a branch office in nearly 40 years. They have extended hours, to accommodate their far flung customers. I use UltraBranch and Bill Pay to pay my bills, as I am often overseas or out of town. My bills are paid automatically, except for my water bill that varies. I have never had a problem when I've called in. Reps were polite, knowledgeable and took care of my concerns right away.
If you read the low ratings, bear in mind that this is a very large credit union, and the poor reviews represent less than 1% of their members. Also many of the low raters admit they are over 90 days late paying. What did they expect? Free money?

Best Credit Union We Know In Seattle Area

Posted by: |

We have banked here at the Northgate branch trouble-free for about 7 years now. Some banks are just so cold to you, and you can tell the workers are only there for their hours, not concerned if you deposit 20K or 200k, (like Sound in Shoreline...but that's another story). Barbara remembers our name and even if we were out of state for a year, she still remembers us and brings us into her office to ask our needs; and it's a normal and courteous chat, not just business. She represents AlaskaUSA to us, it's not always the best returns, but a contact like her is important too.

Staff Experience

Posted by: |

I bank at the northgate branch in Seattle. I find the turn over in the staff at the bank to be exceptionally high. Consequently when dealing with things like opening an IRA or CD, I have gotten in new teller each time and only one time out of 4 did the teller know exactly what to do, however she left. It seems like once they ge4t some experience they move on. If you're not paying attention and know what the fial outcome should be, mistakes will be made. Perhaps the turnover problem is related to the branch being open 7 days a week. I would rathe they only open five and a half days and keep their employees. Everyone is alway friendly but inexperienced

Former Customers

Bank allowed a charge to happen knowing no money was being deposited into my account. Then did a charge off. I called to get it cleared up. Special account services stated I needed to go in. Considering I'm not near a branch right now due to my children medical needs I couldn't. I family member deposited money into my savings account and they will not allow me to access it. Not once did they tell me they froze my cards or savings account. Now I'm forced to pay a 150 cancelation fee for my child's cardiologist appointment because I can't access the money until they open 1 hour after her appointment. I called last month and they said nothing. Will be getting a new credit union this one is the worst. NSF means no funds available for a reason. Not allow things to process and overdraft peoples accounts
