I always tell our new associates to consider joining the credit union, because:
It is very convenient: you can get on-line to see your accounts which are updated daily. And, you are issued a MAC card which you can use for free at many locations if you don't want to drive downtown to the credit union.
The employees are friendlier than at other financial institutions, where they treat you as if you "need" them & it is their way or the highway, there is virtually no such thing as customer service. But, at Riverfront they always provide great customer service.
They have a great "kids" club & offer several special events year-round for the kids. Also, my kids enjoy submitting their entries to the coloring contests & other contests they have in which they could possibly win something. You can even arrange to build your kids' savings accounts by having a payroll deduction from your check directly into their account.
That's about it... can you tell I love the Credit Union!!!!!!
