Yes they have some of the best rates available for accounts and mortgages, but their service is awful. The mortgage department is especially poor. Questions brushed off, no return phone calls, gives the impression that they don't want to be bothered like they are doing you a favor. Unbelievable!
Their rates are competitive locally, but we have had several instances where we were treated poorly by their tellers. There's an arrogance and unfriendliness by the tellers that we have not encountered at other banks. They seem more interested in "zinging" you than in being helpful. A recent example: a simple transaction where we wanted to exchange $600 in small bills (mostly 20s) into larger bills was met with such antagonism that we gave up on the transaction.
Their ATMs located at their branches and main office are frequently not in service or out of paper.
We currently have multiple accounts with the bank, yet we are rarely treated in a helpful manner.
Great bank overall but if you have good credit but with a marginal past, good luck getting a loan. I recently applied for a loan and was turned down cause of stuff that was on my report. The stuff on the report was taken care of years ago and was given letters of satisfaction. This stuff was brought back into question and was denied a loan. I would not encourage anyone to bank through them if you are triing to rebuild your credit, they will not give you a chance.
