My personal suggestion
You should open an account with this bank only if you live in a remote area where Al Rajhi is the only option or your employer is one of the approved employers to get a credit card and bank loan.
Otherwise, the customer service of this bank is pathetic and you cannot get a credit card from them if your employer is not an approved employer.
