Need some SoCal LA area bank, credit union help.

So I will be getting my first check tomorrow and expect to continue getting them, small but they'll do what they're intended; pay for gas and get some printing and such for the biz. Unfortunately, I can't spend a check, I needs me a credit union or somethin' kinda similar.

What say you, long time So Cal and/or LA area residents, which banking entity around here would you recommend and why? I do prefer one that I can walk into. I am in the San Gabriel Valley but travel around enough that really anywhere in the LA area should be fine.

Thank you!

1. It would seem as though the California forum might be more likely to offer help on this...

Good luck on your search, though

2. Find a credit union you can join. They are less predatory with the fees and penalties and

whatnot, from what I hear. I have my business account at Bank of the West - they're smaller and decent. Avoid the megabanks.

3. I use a credit union from my employer, but I know Wells Fargo is fairly popular

and I think they have a lot of locations.

4. I've been very happy with Wescom Credit Union

Its headquarters is in Pasadena. I have been with them for about 8 years. Great service and good online banking capabilities.

5. Excellent. Thank you!

 

I will look into them. One "live" person I've visited with here in LA also recommended them, so that's two for Wescom.
