They let the best manager they ever had go unjustly. This manager had managed almost every branch they had. I lived in Narragansett and followed him to every branch he worked. Dennis would go above and beyond for me. He would even balance my check book for me. He was the best. I will certainly open my accounts at the next employer who is lucky enough to have him. The situation was a mistake that never should have happened and had nothing to do with his employment. As a matter of fact it is my understanding a more serious situation along the same lines as what happened to Dennis occurred with another Employee only that situation was legitimate and the promoted that employee. Do not ever work for this company RUN and since they are so unfair to their employees imagine how they will treat their members
They offered a credit card that gave 3 points on some purchases. What they didn't say is that this really isn't 3%. The points are worth less, and so it turned out to be about 1.3%. I talked to them when I realized this, but they think it is perfectly fine to do this.
I think this is deceptive advertising, so I no longer trust them about anything.
Update in 2019: The other cus locally seem very nice. Their employees are pleasant and helpful. Not so with People's. Also People's for a long time has had the lowest rates on CDs in the area. I came into People's recently to withdraw my IRA RMD (required minimum distribution) and the employee was snarky, said I couldn't take it out, that I was breaking a contract about the account, all of which was not true. I had to email the branch supervisor and come in a second time to do this.
Update in 2020: They don't offer two factor authentication, so they are less secure than other local financial institutions. I have moved almost all of my savings elsewhere. Frankly, I don't know how they stay in business.
