Great For Average User

The bank is great for the individual that needs to go the bank. The individuals at all the branches are very friendly and helpful when you walk in. Most times they remember you by name too. However, for the hours are a little tricky to make it in for some people, and the online banking site is less than optimal. All you can do is check your balances and sign up for bill payer. There is not the opportunity for other services either. Additionally, their website is hard to navigate to find information for on things such as their credit card, CDs, and other services the bank provides. Overall, the bank is great for an average user.
