TFCU Review

I have been a constant and consistent customer of TFCU for over 10 years. They were my first bank that i opened up a savings account, and were also the first back that i opened up a checking acct with a debit card! Their rates are really great, some of the highest i could find on this island! I was skeptical at first of joining a CU, but after the positive interactions i have had with tellers, managers and other folks in the community, i have had no regrets. They treat me like a valued customer, with smiles on their faces. The only thing that i could critique is that they should have a sign outdoors that points toward their ATM, otherwise some people might end up circling the building to find the ATM...not a fun thing to do in the rain!
