The representative drafted my CD after greeting me upon my arrival. She confirmed a slight amount to be deposited to my Share account. And, printed out the CD document and showed me where the particulars were.

My wife and went up to open new Thrive accounts and a small 'ladder' of CD's. The teller was awesome and the trainee that she brought over to get some practice was friendly and efficient as well. It was like clock-work.

Susan was the consummate professional in assisting me with my certificate account. She explained the process and alleviated my every concern. My only regret is that the required time for the account to mature could not be reduced. Nonetheless, this was a wise decision on my part and Susan was extremely helpful throughout the entire process.
