I entered the branch and I was greeted immediately. There were no other customers in the branch. I was called forward immediately. She asked how she could help me. I said I needed to make a deposit. She asked for my member number, then my driver's license. She took the information off my driver's license and put the information on a form… She finished the transaction and offered me the receipt. She then asked me to have a nice day and offered me some popcorn.
Congratulations to all of the branches and especially to the wonderful tellers who inspired these comments. You are what makes shared branching such a positive experience for guest members each and every day.
