An Okay Credit Union

Posted by: 7834756 | Jan 3, 2017

Members First is an okay credit union, but I have been thinking about switching. Even though it's a minor part because most things are digital today, their customer service is absolutely horrible. I've encountered about four different tellers, and each one came off as rude and judgmental, like they couldn't be bothered to do their job, which makes me feel like I'm not welcome there at all. Other than the customer service, they are pretty average. I have over-drafted a few times and the fee is $30; I've seen higher. Their website is easy to use, as well as the online and mobile banking features. They even have a link on the website that tells you where you can find ATMs without a surcharge. Overall, Members First isn't terrible, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable with giving them my money if the people I dealt with when I was there were friendlier.

Okay option.

This credit union is nice because it's very close to me, and has decent hours, and is rarely very busy. On the other hand, the workers are generally unfriendly, and occasionally even rude, which is a really big turn off, especially for a credit union. Their online banking takes a pretty long time to update as well. I could buy something with my debit card, and it can take up to 6 days to go through to my account. While it's my responsibility to manage my finances and spending, I make mistakes on occasion and have had my account overdrawn because purchases took multiple days to show up on my account, which costs me another $30. Overall, this is just an okay credit union to work with.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. MembersFirst CT Federal Credit Union has a relatively low asset base.
