I also don’t get my mail until 7 or 8 at night. Saturday 9/30/17 I was suppose to get a package from amazon. At 8 o’clock amazon messaged my phone and stated delivery will have different delivery date. Then Sunday morning I got an email saying package was attempted to be delivered but couldn’t be. I would find notice and follow instructions. NO ONE tried to deliver anything!!!! I was home all day and my dogs bark like crazy when someone is outside! I got no mail at all that day. It also just happened that there were some big football games on at 5 and 8. Auburn and Alabama games. I feel the carrier was late again so just went home and didn’t finish route so they could watch game. I had to spend my morning today going online and rescheduling the deliver. I am very angry!! I have also had a few packages left at the wrong address. Thankfully the people brought the packages to me instead of keeping them. I get a lot of my groceries through amazon bc I am disabled and shopping and toting groceries is hard for me. I live at 7060 Pocahontas rd.


My mail didn't get delivered until 8:45 tonight and I was expecting an Amazon package. Received email from Amazon that delivery was attempted and I should find a notice from USPS with options. I was home and there was no attempted delivery. This is the 2nd time this has happened. I'm upset over the package and would like to know why we get our mail so late. And yes, there was mail but no package nor notice on delivery options!


Bessemer postal delivery to residential homes does not occur until 7-8pm on a daily basis. I call the post office and am told that a new carrier is trying to learn the mail route. What happened to training a person first, then letting them take over. Getting your mail between 7 and 8pm day after day is unacceptable. We never had this problem with our regular carrier, she was great.
