Awful Credit Union.

Customer service is horrible, new fees popping up everywhere, tellers are undereducated and bank has no respect for long time members. I have stayed with this credit union becuase of convenience due to the fact that they are part of the CU service network and have been a member for 11 years! Finally closed my account and am so happy! P.O.S. customer service supervisor treated me as if I was a 10 year old child, when in fact he was a smarmy, little jerk that hung up on me! They nickle and dime you to death and act as if they are trying to be Chase or Bank of America, but sadly they are not.  Goodbye and goodriddance!

Worst Credit Union By Far.

I would advise everybody to stay away from this credit union. They have fees associated with just about everything you could imagine and they will not reverse their decision once they charge you. Customer service does not exist, and their representatives will hang up on you if you question them. I would give them a zero star rating if I could. There are other banks on the CU network that I'm sure are much better to deal with.
