John Olson - U.S. Bank - Banking Trends

John Olson is the branch manager for U.S. Bank in La Quinta (located right across the street from the Cliff House in the Von’s center).  John has been with U.S. Bank for 6 years now and shared with us that he chose to apply to U.S. Bank after attending a job fair where he learned about the bank’s commitment to community service.  No stranger to community service himself, John revealed to us all that he was the president of his Interact Club while in high school in Yucaipa.  John told us of U.S. Bank’s scholarship program and how it helps 100 high school students annually.  We all liked what John had to say about developing a personal relationship with your banker.  With all the technology available today many of us don’t even go to the bank anymore as deposits and payments can all be made online.  But if there is ever a problem with the “system” wouldn’t it be nice to call someone you know… like your branch manager to help you resolve it?  That is the type of personal banking relationship John strives for at his branch.  John answered several members questions letting us know that due to federal regulations U.S. Bank does not participate in any way with the marijuana industry; he explained how due to the skills of today’s criminals banks must put a “hold” on cashier’s checks; how you must make arrangements in advance for large cash withdrawals, and that the safest ways to pay bills is to charge them on your credit card (since the credit card companies have fraud protection).
