Wonderful Video Teller Maria

Posted by: |

I was treated as royalty by the most professional and pleasant video teller named Maria, she went out of her way to make sure my deposit was successful, she even warned me about grabbing my money fast because it was a windy day, I didn't know Greater Nevada Credit Union had a drive up video service. It was comfortable, convenient and this lady was kind and so polite. I was impressed by the service.

Just too many fees

Posted by: |

Greater Nevada Credit Union (GNCU) rates above average in all categories except when it comes to fees . Everything has a fee and the requirements to waive the fees are way too restrictive to be fair . For example a cashiers check will cost $6 no matter how much money you have on deposit . You have to use your debit card at least 10 times in a billing cycle to avoid the service charges on a checking account , which in themselves are way too high . Our retirement account has an annual fee of $20 , with no way to avoid the fee , and we are being paid one tenth of one percent interest .

When we opened our accounts the teller turned out to really be a saleslady . She continually tried to get us to buy more products and talk to her in house investment adviser , who charges high fees . I had to complain to the manager in order to get her to stop . In the end the manager apologized and entered a "Do not up sell" into our file .

If you are going to use this bank to hold some emergency money and maybe some retirement money it is better than average . For day to day banking I advise you to go shop around .

Closed Account After Six Months

Bonus interest on a $25000 cap not worth hassle of meeting requirements and dealing with problematic employee training, call center waits, and IT issues.

Worst Bank Ever

Posted by: |

We moved across country and the bank isn't there. not able nor is it practical to stick with them. This "institution" has done everything in its negligence and greed to delay the final closing. meanwhile as my account need to be at zero to close it. Some fees snuck through days after we requested it get closed and nobody informed us that they were not able to close the account. Meaning they slapped us with over $300 dollars in fees for an account we don't want, use, or need.

The mobile app is pretty intuitive as a basic platform. But getting in contact with someone who can actually help you facilitate any sort of help is wasted effort at best. Most of the time you get and automated message calling you phone saying to please call the bank as it is important.
