Truwest Is The WORST CU!

The worst Credit Union experiences at Tru West. They are disorganized and lack services because they protect themselves and not that of the customer. I pulled a car loan because of horrible services and lack of customer service etiquette. The policies are to protect themselves and they don't care about customers like Credit Unions are known for. I have account with Desert Schools and had accounts in past with AZ Federal (car loan) and One AZ (account) and all were about customers with par services. Tru West falls short in all area's and ratings are horrible which defines them. Look at turn over which says something about them grasping for ways to get it right and they keep failing. The worst...

Not A Good Experience

Posted by: ccrensh3 | Jun 16, 2015

Call center is not helpful, bank does not resolve issues, accessing money or accounts is complicated. I've been with the bank for a year and just recently one of the branches ATM machines ate $400 cash, I called to resolve the issue with the bank and was not helped at all. I was told different things from different people and now I'm out $400 until the ATM dispute goes through which could be up to 10 business days. Bill collectors are waiting. As soon as this issue is resolved we are pulling all of our money out and switching banks.

This Credit Union Is Not Member Friendly

This credit union is a bank, they have lost their way. There has been a total change in the way they do business - they are more concerned with ramming their way of doing business versus LISTENING to you.

Worst Banking Experience

Posted by: adamemilie | Aug 5, 2011

I have banked with several institutions and TruWest Credit Union certainly wins the award for the worst in every aspect.  I have yet to speak to a customer service representative who is not rude, demeaning, and not helpful.  Calling to express concerns regarding the poor customer service served to be useless as the only "person" to answer was a voicemail and the effort to return my call was not put forth.  This is not a "personal attack" but rather constructive criticism recommending that your "customer service" begin to do just that...actually serve the customer.
