I love this credit union.  The customer service is fantastic, friendly and efficient.  Nobody "passes the buck and/or blame" like you see at big banks. If there is something a teller doesn't know, they'll find someone in the bank, in person, who does.  Then again, you can always email them and get answers that way quickly too.  There are tons of branches all over NC.  If you're not in NC, the only fees I've encountered using another ATM, is the ATM provider's fee.  The maintence fees are low ($1/month) and they've got alot of flexible loan programs.   The website is great.  Not only the typically account access, but access to things like kelly blue book and tax info.  Just an overall great place!

 Excellent customer service; Decisions based on each member's particular needs; and branches statewide. SECU deserves every star they receive because they have earned it: The best of the best.

Member since 1985 Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

I would have given 5 stars for "customer service", but I had a Branch Manager disapprove my home refinance application which I found out about 18 months later from the Area Manger  should not have been disapproved or stopped by the Branch Manager.  2 weeks later my wife and I had our home refinanced successfully.  My father inlaw had told me back in 1985 that I should establish a good financial relationship with this credit union because they are very loyal to it's members, and he was right.

 I am SO happy to be a member of  the North Carolina State Employees Credit Union.  It is convenient to my home, and banking on-line is also very helpful.  The staff all know what they're doing, and they're professional and friendly.  SECU is worth my highest review.

Worked @ SECU Helpful to 6 out of 8 people

This credit union as a fantastic reputation but it has a horrible culture and treats its employees terrible.  I had ZERO of***es in nine months employed, and had great relationships with the members but was constantly treated HORRIBLE by my supervisor.  

The credit union claims to care about what is best for the members but really only cares about money.  In branch meeting we were constantly told to push products in order to improve the bottom line regardless of whether or not they members needed the service or even benefited from the service.

Quality Service at a Fair Price Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

Love my relationship with the NCSECU.  I have had an account with them since I was 13 and they have always treated me fairly.  Very competitive rates and good customer service keep me coming back to them for me.
