This post office is corrupt! I sent certified mail to a former employer who had asked me "if I kill you and bury you in the woods would any one come looking for me" after I refused to drill out postal mail box locks at 290 Alder Grove in Arcata at the employers orders. I subsequently found that I was the therd person whom this man hired to drill out the locks. Each of the other two people found out it was a crime and refused. The employer is the husband of the property owner. He hired a fourth person, a employer, who drilled out most of the locks before the post office interceded. The post office refused to except my written complaint against the mail carrier for failing to deliver this letter and sending it back stating "no mail box at that address." My written complaint includes pictures of the mail box with the address that the letter was addressed to. Please people, contact the US attorney by certified mail (but don't send it through the Arcata Post office it won't get there!).
Arcata your services suck. I have had so many issues within the month of me moving here it is bull shit. First, the mailman wouldn't deliver our mail for weeks because a neighbors whom I couldn't get ahold of had a truck that was blocking the mailbox, when it was not. If it's too close for you to pull up next to, get out of your car? You are getting payed to do a job. Where I'm from the mailmen would walk the entire blocks so I don't think that's asking too much. Now that that's been resolved I come to find out a piece of mail I've been waiting on has been at the post office for weeks, and that it is going to be sent back. No slip letting me know that it's arrived? So, I head on over to the post office at 5:10 under the impression they are open until 6 as it says online. And no, they close at 5:00, and the employees were rude. No explanation he just shuts the door after letting a customer out. I wait for another employee to let a customer out, and when I explain she says yes the hours are wrong, but they won't change them. What the hell? If I had known I would have come 10 minutes earlier. I have a job and school to attend I am getting really sick of running back and forth trying to resolve issues that should not be issues in the first place. If your hours online are posted wrong, and I am speaking to you- let me in. That is your guys' fault not mine.
I just called the Arcata Post Office number and let it ring at least 15 times and NOBODY answered..oh surprise. seems to be a problem with post offices.
The carrier claimed they left a note about not being able to deliver to my Rt 177, Fieldbrook address...there's NO note. I want my merchandise but can't contact arcata to have it re-routed to Fields Landing Post Office. Nice!
Just got a notice saying they will not deliver to my home anymore because of my dog. First of all, my dog is a sweetie and has never been aggressive with any person at all. I do understand If the mail carrier is uncomfortable with dogs, all she had to do was tell me! But that never happened. In addition, she was always quite unfriendly and would regularly leave my (previously closed) gate wide open, allowing my dog to roam out into traffic. I would of happily and respectfully made sure my dog was in the house if I had any idea she had a problem. Instead of communication, I got a passive aggressive letter saying that until the mailbox is moved they will not deliver the mail. Thanks alot USPS. Worst service ever!
Worst post office ever!!! After living somewhere for months and turning in multiple forms saying I live here, still all my mail is being returned!! Complained in person multiple times and these morons still can't figure out to deliver my mail. If you live in arcata, get a private mail box and save yourself the trouble of dealing with these idiots!!!
