Great group of people here!!

I love coming to this bank!! Every other bank I’ve gone to is just kind of eh with their customer service but the people here are just incredible. Always so friendly, welcoming, and beyond helpful. They are always happy to answer any of my questions and I just feel so well taken care of here. So glad I switched. Thank you First Century!!

We have been married 24 yrs and we have always used First Century Bank. The employees are very kind and knowledgable! They are always willing to help us in anyway they can with our banking needs. And they are locally owned.

AMY is so helpful! When I had some odd things I needed done to my bank accounts Amy was there to help me out with a positive can do attitude!!

The best bank in Claiborne County. Its the only one I use.

Great staff and great services offered! Jessie has all the answers for my questions in a snap, I highly recommend!

The ONLY place to do banking!!!

Best bank and Employees!

We have used First Century now for 2 home loans! Denise has been a dream to work with and helped us so much along away! She has been extremely patient and answered all my crazy questions!! We could not have had a better experience with Denise and First Century!! I highly recommend them!

Very helpful and courteous!

An awesome bank, the staff is great to work with, and after shopping around they had the best options for business accounts.

My husband and I have done business with this bank for at least 40 years. The employees are always very helpful. It's a great bank!

Best place to bank. I've been a customer for years.

[We] are very pleased with the bank's service. Worked with Austin for a loan to purchase property. We live in PA and he handled everything from helping us with a surveyor to settlement. Never had to leave PA to do it. Great service and look forward to working with your bank in the future. Thank you for everything.

Great bank! Friendly and helpful staff. Jessie, Hunter and Jeremy go above and beyond great service in your banking needs.

Jessie, Hunter and Jeremy are great people who clearly care a lot about their customers. Always going the extra mile to be polite, considerate and helpful. Highly recommended!!

The staff are so nice and very helpful. I set up a checking account and they explained the different accounts as well as helping me get all the paperwork filled out. I also inquired as to an auto loan and the loan officer was very honest and fair and informed me that the current auto loan I had with another bank was better than she would be able to offer me and advised me to keep my vehicle financed with my other bank. I highly recommend you take a look at First Century for your banking needs.

The People are really nice and helpful

Some of the nicest people you will ever meet! Stacy went above and beyond her duty to help me out! More companies need more people like her working for them!!

Great bank! Great people!
