Safe, Secure, Friendly And Strong!

Posted by: |

I have been a member of Goldenwest Credit Union for 16 years and have always been treated with respect, courtesy, and professionalism. The leadership and management team is comprised of men and women with great character, integrity, and genuine concern for their members. I have never had any issues with my accounts or the branch employees I have dealt with. They are extremely competitive with rates and fees. I have had easy access to my accounts while traveling nationally and internationally. GWCU is a strong, safe, and wonderful financial institution to help with nearly all of your financial needs.

Customer Service Is Second To NONE!

Been a member of GWCU for nearly 16 years with 9 of these years being outside of the USA. Have I ever had a problem with my account while traveling and living abroad...nope! Can I call any time and get my problems solved...yep! I talk to expats all the time about how horrible their bank is; but my CU gets it done every time! Amazing staff, products and services. From remote deposit, online banking, you name it! A+++

Exceptional Service

Posted by: |

I've banked at Goldenwest Credit Union for over 13 years and have had a very positive experience. Their rates are extremely competitive and their mortgage department has delivered exceptional service on all three mortgages I've completed with GWCU.

Very Helpful!

I've been a member with Goldenwest for almost two years and I've never had any issues. Their interest rates are very competitive with other credit unions in my area and the customer service is always great! I would definitely recommend GWCU to a friend.

Golden West Credit Union Is Disgusting!

Samantha is the most worthless operator there is. What a pile. SHE REFUSED TO HELP SENDING IN THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTS TO THE GAP INSURANCE DIVISION.

Get With The Times This Sucks

Posted by: |

My very first time going to ATM its down! I go back today and the ATM does not do cash deposits. This is a freaking credit union get with the times. I have had my account open for about a month I am going to be closing my account! Hell, even Wells Fargo and Chase both have ATM deposits. NO I am not going to put my cash in a side bucket and WAIT to have access until next business day. Thank you for wasting my time.

Trash Company.

Posted by: |

GWCU is the worst credit union I've ever worked with. Amongst many complaints, they took "inactive fees" EACH MONTH if I didn't use the account. What a JOKE of a company. Closed account and I am NEVER going back. Not to mention they have some of the HIGHEST interest rates. I wish I could give them a 0! When I asked about the fees, they said "sorry you were never informed, but it's already done and there's nothing we can do". What trash.
