Banking with United Bank

Posted by: Ambs85 | Oct 6, 2015

When I walked in to United Bank on Shady Grove Road in Rockville, Maryland, I was greeted very warmly. I went to open a free checking account. The person at the desk was available to help me right away. He introduced himself to me immediately and proceeded to assist me. He showed me the different benefits of each checking account and told me what they offered. After contemplating, I decided to go with the account that gives 10% back when you spend. He informed me that with this account, the limit to get back is $10 per quarter, which will be mailed to me as a check. He opened my account within 30 minutes, and before I left he helped me set up online banking. I left with all of my needs met. Two days later, he called me to see how my account was going. This has been the best banking experience I have ever had.

I Am Their Lowly Customer

Posted by: Scribe | Dec 31, 2016

Of the four banks I've dealt with in West Virginia, United Bank is my least favorite. They seem to think they are my masters, and I'm lucky I can do business with them. For example, I once parked in their behind-the-bank parking lot (open to public), went inside and made a deposit, then walked out the front door and did a little shopping, then back into their parking lot after 20 minutes to find a tag on my car threatening to tow it! For a long time, an "inactive" account was charged a fee, I don't know if they still do that, I closed my savings account because of it. My ATM card stopped working for no apparent reason, and their attitude was, too bad, apply for another one. I've moved, and trying to change my address and phone number with them has been like trying to squeeze water out of a stone. The tone of their phone rep has been cold, it's like we set the rules, you follow them. I will be glad when I've closed my checking account and gotten rid of them.

Lack Of Confidentiality Regarding Your Finances

Posted by: ceo | Jan 28, 2012

What ever happened to the adage that says banking is confidential. If you do not want other people to know your business do not do any banking with the united Bank in Parkersburg on Market Street. I own a small business And in the course of getting a line of credit I gave United some financial information. The commercial loan officer who knew one of the MINORITY stock holders informed them about company business and shared the financials and discussed other items to which that shareholder was not entitled to know about. I was about to merge all three of our branches account business there as we at present only have the account for one branch at united. I cannot be assured that my account information will be kept confidential so now because if this unethical breech I am closing the existing account and merging all three elsewhere. This is the second occurrence with the same bank officer with that shareholder. Shame on him!
