Overall Service

This is the worst bank I have ever dealt with. They run the subsidiary my university uses for refunds. They charge for virtually every little thing, the rates are not low at all, some procedures are archaic and there is a lot of red tape, and the customer service representatives I have spoken to are rude normally. I cannot wait to graduate so I do not have to deal with this bank ever again.
