This bank has great hours & free checking if you are in the area. There are not many locations available. The free checking is nice, with many options. They weren't fee happy either like some other banks. The staff is friendly & they do some fun customer appreciation days. They also give a free gift with opening account. Great bank!
PROS: Free checking, good hours, ATM
CONS: Not many locations
When we decided to build our home we needed a construction loan.. we shopped this around at the banks we belonged to and to other banks that we didn't already belong to because we wanted to find a bank that worked with what we thought was important.. we ended up going through First State, which we were not prior members to because of a few reasons.. first off their staff was just super friendly, they sat with us and answered questions, gave us advice and really just got to know the situation before telling us what we had to do, which is the treatment we got at some other banks.. First State was very easy going with us from the beginning until the end, we were so glad we used them for our construction loan.. it was such a simple process that other banks just wanted to make way too complicated!
Service with a smile! The staff is quite friendly and helpful, especially Sue! With locations at Harper Avenue and Mack Avenue, as well as one in Easpointe, you have many options to access this bank. Parking is located in front and on the side and is plentiful. You can also access this bank from Little Mack Avenue by turning into the First State Mortgage parking lot and driving through. Great place to check out options on loans or to purchase CDs. This bank makes many contributions to the community, as well. ATM is located in the front of building and has its own enclosure with a door that locks behind you for safety.
