Whether I go inside or through the drive thru, I am almost always satisfied with my bank. The employees are very friendly, and while they do engage in small talk, they still work efficiently and accurately. Whenever I have had a question (once concerning switching my joint account to a single account), they are prompt and helpful in their service. Their online banking works very well too, although I wish I could move money from account to account. However, I never think to ask them in person how this could be done; I'm sure they would be more than happy to help me with this. I like this credit union so much that when my daughter started making some money from a part time job, I encouraged her to open up an account here, too. They are also very community-minded, often hosting and sponsoring events to benefit members of the community. They are very competent, without being "stuffy" like many other banks.

good little credit union

For the short period of time that I have been with Commonwealth credit union I have felt more like a person that everyone knows when walking through the doors unlike going to a bank where you are just another individual. the Bank gives decent apr's at least better than a bank which I consider to be terrible nowadays compared to what they used to be about 10 years ago. Commonwealth is very helpful with autoloans and has reasonable fees.
