Service With A Smile

I'm a relatively happy member of the Metro Credit Union here in eastern Massachusetts; this credit union's greatest strength is the customer service you get in person and over the phone; there's always a smiling face willing to go above and beyond to help you with anything...even the credit union's sometimes flaky on-line banking website. Keep in mind, the folks at the branches are TELLERS financial experts. They're really not supposed to get involved in trouble-shooting to see if the website problems are with their own system or the customer's laptop! However, on a recent occasion when I couldn't get one function of the metrocu.org site to work, one of the tellers did bring me and my laptop into an office and double-checked the functions between my computer and a bank's personal computer; she was able to replicate the problem on a bank computer, and forward an IT ticket for resolution. Service With A Smile!

Great for student life and beyond!

I got my first METRO Credit Union account as a graduate student--a simple savings and checking account. From the beginning, METRO has been attentive to my specific needs, and I have remained with them as I have expanded my needs to include a more aggressive savings account, direct deposit, and a personal credit card that they service. Most transactions can be completed online, including opening new accounts and applying for loans. When it is necessary to go into a branch, there is almost always friendly customer service (except during very high-volume periods). They have an extremely reasonable fee structure, great options like overdraft protection, and easily accessible high-yield savings account. From a financial standpoint, I feel very little need to take my business elsewhere. The only areas in which METRO falls short of ideal are its web presence and its limited number of branches. METRO is clearly trying to create a more seamless mobile experience, and it has definitely improved over the 5+ years I have banked with them. But there are still more times than I would like where online banking is down or otherwise inaccessible. Their locations in the city aren't terribly convenient, so in a perfect world they would open a few more branches, but since so much banking can be done online, this doesn't affect my day-to-day experience with METRO very negatively. Ultimately, I would recommend this credit union for its helpfulness, honesty, good products, and constant drive for improvement. It is a great beginner bank for a student, and one that has what it takes to grow with its customers over time.
