The bank staff have been doing a good job, (they) extend courtesy and a helping hand to you,” one customer said.Shemaine Pilgrim has been a GBTI customer all her life. “I have been an early saver from birth because that was a special gift my father would have given to me – a savings account. The service here has been pretty good. I haven’t changed since… it’s been 33 years of very good service and my children have started using the services as well,” she noted.“I always get good service when I come here and that’s why I’ve stayed so long,” said Synola Khan.Gordon Kingston rated the bank as excellent, especially in its efficiency, cooperation and the pertinent advice offered to customers.
