First let me say, this is in regards to the Branch in Richmond, Maine. We haven't had any experiences at any other branches. Both my husband and I have checking accounts and I have a college savings type account for my child too. There new building was just resurrecting. Extremely inconvenient that the bank and it's employees didn't conduct the actual move on the weekend instead of during the week. They closed down for business, which was extremely inconvenient. Their hours are limited. Staying open only until 4. It seems they don't go out of their way to make banking any more convenient. They moved their ATM machine, to the inside. Accessible only to card holders after hours. I have a debit card with them, and it still doesn't open the door. The tellers inside are ALWAYS grumpy. NEVER a smile or a kind word. When I try to use their "convenient" shared branching service, I just get a lot of guff. It's like they are put out by doing it. Lastly, we called about getting a loan to buy some land, we never got a call back as promised, and had to call back ourselves a week later. Really disappointed with this local bank. They are physical convenient, but all the hassle and bad attitudes make us not want to bank there. As far as the ATM, I have heard from lots of townspeople that this is really inconvenient. They will end up losing business to the other local banks in town for this.
