MCU is a great provider! I have taken personal and auto loans from them in the past and doing so was quick and easy. I enjoy having human contact rather than doing things on the website; therefore, I always call them if I needed their services. I feel comfortable talking to their representatives and I believe that every company should be largely judged according to their customer service representatives.
A year ago, I needed an auto loan and decided to go with MCU. They were very helpful in helping me obtain a loan from them. While on a phone with a friendly customer service representative, he provided me with all the options so obtain a loan with the lowest interest. He took time to listen to what I wanted and needed and had no problems answering my questions. He was very informative and was happy that he was able to provide me with a auto loan with an extremely low interest rate. Thank you so much MCU!!
MCU is fast, reliable, easy, and quick. I love their service so much. I never have to wait i long lines and I never have problems that dont get resolved. The associates are fast and friendly anyone can tell that they are trained well. The atmosphere of this credit union is very family oriented. I love that i can take my brothers or sisters here and they wont be a burden to the workers because the workers are so friendly
First things first, this review applies to EVERY MCU branch I've come across and the bank as a whole. I went to Yelp to see if I was overreacting w/ my feelings towards this joke of a financial institution. NOT AT ALL!!! After reading other reviews (some go back as far as 2014), it seems that my experiences w/ MCU are more the contentious than it just being a 'one time deal'. Their customer service is the most atrocious I have ever encountered! The worst, and I've been on hold w/ cable providers for hours and I still put them ahead of this bank. My wife is a nurse and was "given" this account when she started over a decade ago. Not an instance goes by where after we've dealt w/ this bank that I say to her "pleeeease, let's go to another bank". Locking our account w/ no warning, jumping through hoops to replace cards, no ATM's easily accessible, deposited checks that take way too long to clear, bank cards so cheaply made that the black strip becomes unreadable after regular everyday use, customer service that is only available during 'office hours, business days'...too much to list to be honest. The only thing holding us from leaving MCU is the debt we have w/ one of their cards. Once that is paid off, adios MCU!!! I am currently copying and pasting this to every review forum I can find because they and everyone needs to know how I feel and that this has been brewing in me FOR YEARS!!!! If I could leave a negative 5 stars review, I would without any hesitation.
