Rude Staff

The staff is rude, unwilling to help and talk down to you when you have questions and do not care about their customers. I was even told by one of their personal bankers that whether or not I was charged a fee for certain things depended on her mood for the day. I was informed decisions on peoples accounts depended on whther or not she felt like being nice. Cant close my account soon enough!!!!
