MyBankTracker rated BB&T based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
We use 3 banks: nasa federal credit union, ally bank, and now bb&t. I am using bb&t through my company. The customer service when you call is a nightmare. You get a long hold time, 10-15 minutes, you have to follow a zillion prompts, and then you get a customer service associate that is transfers me to another department, which ultimately lands me into an after hours voicemail that hangs up on you.
I also went to 3 bb&t bank locations around 1pm on saturday only to find out they close at noon on saturday. I guess this is all typical bank stuff but i do not have any issues accessing customer service with nasa or ally. Therefore, i cannot recommend this bank to anyone. Still on phone, 4th time, with another customer service associate.
I've banked at BB&T for a decade and they've always done the right things for me. I don't where a 2 star rating came from - my branch has always been polite, courteous, helpful and friendly.
i have had my bank account for 4 years through bb&t and I have worked at the same place for 3 years every two weeks I go to deposit my check. and today I go and I am told that they want to put a 2 day hold on my check. I am told that it is because they do not have my employer in there computer and to go to the bank that the doctor I work for uses all way across town to cash the check and come back and deposit it... so I go to m&t to cash my check and I am charged $10 to cash my check cause I don't have a account with them... I get back to bb&t for the women inside to tell me that the reason they could not deposit my work check was because I didn't have enough funds in my account to cover the check.. I explained to her I have had as little as 20 dollars in my account before and have never had a problem I have used the same branch the same checking account and had the same employer for 3 years and now they want to start holding my pay checks... yeah I don' t think so I will be going else where to do my banking from now.. they have lost a customer
