Positive Experience

I have been a member of my credit union since I was in grade school. They started off with only one location in our city. Currently there is a second location. Next year there will be a third. I currently have my checking account and saving account at this institution. I previously have had certificates of deposit here, though currently I don't have any at this institution. I have moved my cd's to a different credit union because they are paying better rates. I pay no fees for my savings or checking account, other than the cost of checks. I used to go in person to the credit union branch often, however with the prominence of direct deposit, I don't frequently visit the branch. I do still drop by to turn in change or cash random checks I receive. I have always had a pleasant experience when visiting my credit union. I have also dealt with them on the phone. They usually have a hold time. Most of the time the people are pleasant.
