I usually do online banking and the times I had an occasion to go inside a bank.. It was Bank of America, 2800 Oswell St., Bakersfield, CA. The tellers are friendly and efficient. I feel bad for them having to deal with a branch manager who's so disrespectful and highly unprofessional and perhaps stressed out! The manager chewed this teller out right in front of me because she wasn't meeting her goal. The teller was in tears.. the branch manager walked away and another teller stopped her to ask a question, she told her to consult the handbook. The employees are victims of unfair treatment in the workplace in the form of bullying, racial differentiation and even pure harassment. Employees are afraid to speak up.. but this branch manager needs to be trained again and possibly anger management. I will never return again to that bank.

A+++ Awesome customer service. We ran into a problem with our refinance and Scott the owner spent over an hour researching the issue and following up to get the issue resolved. This is a great team with a GREAT leader
This is the worst bank in the city of Bako. It takes hours even to do the most mundane of things. Two hours to close an account?! Take your business elsewhere.
Very Friendly employees, but I honestly feel bad for them. Thank goodness I only have to come here once a month. It is so conveniently located for me BUT they are seriously UNDER Staffed! There is always just 1 to 3 tellers for a line that is always almost to the door!
Awful service. Employees seem unconcerned.
I do not any way recommend the mortgage house for a house loan. they will change yo after the paperwork is done then they will change your loan om FHA to a conventional loan then they ask for updated paperwork every week. The person I'm working with seems to be hiding info the 17 days ave o passed so now we can't walk away and go somewhere else for weems I've been giving updated info it's time to get some help from the BBB
I've none Allyn Medeiros for about 6 years. He is the best mortgage lender in town. He helped many of my client's get a first time home loan or refinance. He helped my son and is now working with my daughter. He is honest, extremely smart, professional, and friendly.
Everything seemed fine in the beginning... I worked with Kay Larue, and she was extremely nice and professional. My fiancee and I were interested in some FHA programs that were going on this past summer (2013). We knew our credit needed a little work, but we were hoping to learn exactly what we should pay off first in order to qualify. She gave us a plan, and we let her know it would take a couple of months. A few days later, I got an alert from Credit Karma - for THREE hard inquiries IN THE SAME DAY. I was a little perturbed, but whatever - all we had to do was pay off a few thousand dollars worth of debt, and we should be right where we need to be, so who cares about a couple of inquiries?Fast forward to 3 months later: We paid off more than we needed to, and I called Kay to see if the programs were still available. I specifically described the programs we had looked at, and after she found out files (which took about 10 minutes of being on hold, along with me suggesting that maybe she filed each of us separately because we still have different last names), she had copies of our income for reference. I told her what price range we were looking in, and she assured me that as long as the credit was where it needed to be, we would have no problem getting approved for the programs. So, I took her word as a supposed professional, and let her run our credit again to make sure everything was in line. BINK- another two hard inquiries (that's 5 total, folks).The next day, after communicating our approval amount to our real estate agent, we started to look for houses. Then, when inquiring about what sort of payment we were looking at for a particular price range, Kay suddenly realized THE PROGRAMS CHANGED. Yes, the programs that I verified with her BEFORE running our credit again. Apparently, it changed the income:mortgage ratio so that we would have to look for houses almost $100,000 less than what we were expecting. Needless to say, this is a huge difference in Bakersfield. We wouldn't want to live in an area in that price range, so we had to abort the plan after months of diligently working toward this goal, and completely change the trajectory of our lives. Now, this isn't completely her fault, however, I could have gone without the 5 hard inquiries on my credit -- two of them for absolutely no reason other than Kay's lack of knowledge and professionalism.
Watch out for the Paypal/Bank of Sierra autopay scam. If you try to close your account with autopay without closing your Paypal these banks will make large sums of money from your account being routed to the wrong place. Watch out for Paypals definition of "Primary account". The Primary account is not the first account to be billed with Paypal. Paypal has their own definition of "Primary account" and Bank of the Sierra profits terribly from it. Look at Paypal/ebay ownership and microfinancing. This is a setup to leach people around the world of their labor and quality of life. Bank of Sierra is doing it in your local area. The secret scam to banking local it will horribly difficult to close your account if you move. They will leach it dry and close it on their own. They can close it once they have your money then send you to collections. They will not allow you to close your own account over the phone. They will keep transactions in Pending status for several weeks. When you try to close your account and mail them a check they will put it through so the amount your sent doesn't match what you own them. Anything they can do to keep you from closing your account. They will max out your overdraft protection and send you to collections. All being enabled by Paypal which is owned by a French Iranian that has all his sentiments with Iran and Iranian allies. Bank of Sierra is here to kill the American economy. Don't trust their philanthropic work. You would have been able to do better for your local area if they didn't rob you of your hard earned money.
This bank has a scam worked out with Paypal. The majority of their profits come from overdraft fees. Paypal conveniently routes your money in the wrong direction and banks like this profit from it. "Primary" account within Paypal is not defined as the account to be billed first through transactions. Autopay transactions will be routed to whatever account you set up when you set up autopay. Nobody would suspect that switching your Primary account wouldn't switch your primary payment with your autopay subscriptions. It's all in the fine print. They make their money by deceiving their customers.
