    How long have you banked with them?: new maybe

    Why do you bank with them?: ROI

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: not sure

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: be more open and available

    General comments: Had a lot of trouble talking to a live person. If there is a problem or a perceived problem it is very difficult to talk to them. Very limited hours M-F like 8-4 if they actually give you the phone number of a live agent. the toll free number directs you to emailing them. I asked for a number but they just called me with no name no number showing. Finally after insisting they gave me the number with limited hours. Nothing like EQ that has 7 day live help and they offer their number up front. I had to ask a few times for the number so I could call them.
