Highlands Union Bank Review

My family has banked at this bank for years. I personally have both a savings and a checking/atm debit account with them. I have visited several different branches over the years. The service is always very friendly and welcoming. Once starting college, I found two aspects that I thought could improve. The online banking system offered by this bank seems to be a little out dated. I move money in and out of my account very quickly. I do not enjoy having to go to the website, log in 3 times to see, that my account does not show the transactions I have made within the past 24-48 hours, possibly longer over the weekend. I just feel the online banking website should be updated more regularly and that it should be more convenient way of accessing it. The other negative, was that this bank only has 14 locations so just make sure your financial business is done before traveling.
