Finally fed up

I was with Arvest from 2003 to 2011. I finally got fed up and switched to Bank of the Ozarks. I was out of town for a few days and withdrew cash to take with me. My account was at $0 for about a day and a half before my paycheck direct deposited. When i returned home the day of the paycheck deposit, I went and bought $150 worth of groceries. Well my card got declined in the middle of a huge line at the store. I'm sure you can imagine how embarrassing that is. After calling customer service, I learned that if your account sits on $0 for more than 24 hours, it's considered "closed." So even though I've banked there for 8 years and had a check of over $1500 wired into my account, it took ANOTHER 24 hours for my debit card to re-activate so I could use it. Also, after YEARS of being with them, they constantly put 2-3 day holds on checks that weren't any more than a few hundred dollars. It was always a hassle and some new drama with them. The ATM at the branch closest to my house is usually down 1-2 times a week as well. Just avoid them. These are all instances that happened more than once. Having the same ownership as Walmart has given them the same fake "customers are #1" theme when you will quickly find out that you don't matter.

After 15 years they say they don't care

After banking with Arvest for 15 years and being sick with pneumonia my account ended up out of whack. I called them to discuss the discrepencies and asked them to work with me. All I got from them is that they really don't care that I was sick in the hospital with pneumonia, it wasn't their fault and they will not adjust any fees unless I can prove that they made an error in any way. All I can say is if you don't care about your customers any more than that then you certainly don't need me as a customer.

Bad Customer Service

They lost my night deposit. I asked them to look around for it and they were really rude about it. First they ask for my full social security to verify my identity. I asked if i could give just the last 4, as i am more comfortable with that. The customer service rep says "no", it has to be the full number. So i give him the full number. Eventually i end up talking to a manager who says i could have just given the last 4 digits and answered some other security questions also. So the customer service rep made me provide the full number for no reason. Next, the customer service rep told me that because i was not a business owner, i couldn't use the night deposit box, so they weren't even going to look for my lost check.

I told them that i have been doing night deposits every 2 weeks for a year, and no one informed me that this wasn't allowed. So the customer service rep finally goes to look to see if they misplaced my check, comes back on the phone, and says "i apologize, i was wrong, we do accept personal checks in the night deposit, but we can't find it. "

overall service was rude, unapologetic for losing my check. Also, they have bad hours which is why i was doing night deposit in the first place.
