Excellent Credit Union

Posted by: |

This credit union really goes out of its way to provide for its customers. I needed a loan for a car, and despite having recently graduated, I was able to get one at a very good rate. This is a credit union that cares about its members, and is more about helping its members get what they need than just eating up more interest. The customer service is great, and all the people I spoke to were very cordial.

USC Credit Union: A lot to like and a lot to not like

I was a customer of USC Credit Union for over five years. I had a checking account and a savings account, both of which were my my primary means of managing money. In some ways, the credit union was state of the art: My direct deposited paychecks arrived like clockwork; they were fair and consistent with hold times for non-payroll checks; I never ran into unexpected or unfair fees from them; the two branches were clean and usually not crowded. But there were a few problems that never improved over the five years: One was the lack of staffing within the bank. Sometimes, transactions with a teller could happen immediately and be done in 30 seconds. Other times, I'd be stuck behind someone with a complicated issue and a 5-minute trip to the credit union on my lunch break turned into a 30-minute ordeal. The second problem is that for a seemingly state-of-the-art financial institution affiliated with a tech-savvy major university, the credit union's website and app were really low-tech and inefficient. Bill paying was either impossible or non-existent. Applying for new accounts or products involved printing out paper forms. The only real capability of the app or website was checking transaction history and even then, some details (time of transaction, funds being held, etc.) were unavailable.
