I'm happy with this credit union but....
Anonymous Account Holder

They closed a lot of their ATM locations. If you live in northeast Tampa be prepared to drive a long distance. You either have to go out to 56th and Busch, Gunn Highway or travel the always busy Bruce B Downs to Wesley Chapel. I live in southern Lutz so none are convenient. If you withdraw money, there are McDonalds that have Suncoast ATMs with no fees but you can't make deposits.

SLOW new system, I will be taking my business elsewhere and canceling this account. Took 30 minutes to deposit cash. Unbelievable

A non-member focused "union"
Anonymous Account Holder

There are many better credit unions out there.  They don't care about their customers and are definitely not a union of them.  One example, any loan has fees to pay online, that's a bit silly these days.  

Another, you can make your car payments for years, and then under hardship the "we can help" department will tell you that they can only help people who don't need it.  They can defer payments for those with income proof, but if you lost your job that doesn't help.

And years back they tried to impose debit card "use as credit card" fees.  It took months of member uproar to get that changed.  I even closed my personal accounts back then.

Don't waste your time with GTE, they are just a bank, and not a true credit union.

They pick and choose which accounts to apply fees to. I have two accounts with them. I purposely overdrawn both accounts at the same time to make sure i wasn't go crazy. Next morning i woke up and i was right all along, they only apply a fee to one account but not to the other. When asked a rep on 3/22/2016 she couldnt even answer my question. When requested to have my savings account linked to my checking to avoid the $35 NSF fee and just get the $7 fee in case, i was also told that the employee from the branch that set up my second account didn't even make the changes. All the times i spoke with previous represenatative they never once told e this information

This bank/credit union is continue going down hill. sad! Had a great attitude and it now stinks. They don't even care when you complain. Saddest application precess for a mortgage. Been twenty days and still not a reply.

Terrible service
Anonymous Account Holder

I joined in 1998 when I was working adt GTE before the Verizon merger. They used to be very good , now, it takes 20 minutes at best to get to a phone rep and they closed most of their locations or turned them into automated centers where you look at a rep through a tv monitor.

I paid 3 cars through them, I am closing all my accounts. What use is a credit union if you cannot get to them or if they don't offer proximity services.
