very solid credit union

I've been banking with HawaiiUSA FCU for the past 9 years. What keeps me going back is the amazing customer service I receive from a local bank. My main banking location of choice is the Pearl City location which always has quick and friendly service. I have a checking, savings and credit card through this institution and am satisfied with all of them. The credit card offers a very low interest rate which I am very happy with.

Hawaii USA Credit Union

Posted by: |

Hawaii USA has been my credit union for about 15 years. They've been dependable institution even though I only visit them once every few years. Their customer service is always friendly and helpful. As I was transitioning from a joint to a single account, on of the service reps sat us down and walked us through all the options and assisted with making the transition. They also took the time to note some additional fees that were on my account due to ATM withdrawals I had made. They kindly refunded all of the fees to me.

My only negative issues with Hawaii USA has been the online experience. Up until recently their desktop and mobile sites were clunky and difficult to access by inputting passwords and usernames. The UI on both sites was not very user friendly. They have recently updated this, and added a mobile app which has improved the experience greatly.

Overall, a great Credit Union to work with. My experience at the branches were positive, and now that they have updated their e-presence, they provide a much better internet experience as well.

Very Poor Customer Service

Posted by: |

I think the employees are not happy at their jobs because they have zero customer service skills. When I asked to speak with a manager, the response I received was "We don't have any managers right now, just supervisors." Huh?!?!?! In my experience, when someone asks to speak with a manager, they want to speak with anyone with more authority than the customer service person who answered the phone. Don't quibble about titles.

When I am complaining, don't ask "How is this our fault?", ask "How can I help to make this right?" Don't tell me: "you can either come in or go to our website and complete dispute forms." Tell me: "let's find out where the problem is" or "let me look into this and give you a call back." Yes, the customer isn't always right, but with the right customer service attitude, you will keep your members instead of shoving them out the door/off the phone!
