I live at 7215 Fontana St., Downey, Calif. 90241. For a few months now I have not been receiving all my mail. Many companies have been calling me to tell me my bills are delinquent. I always mail my bills. Many of my letters are never delivered. I have to put stop payments on my checks because you don't deliver my letters. I called the Imperial Hwy Post Office this morning and explained my problem. I was told that they would email you my phone number so that i could explain my problem. You never called me. You never answer your phone. I am really disgusted with you horrible service. I will be forced to complain to the General Postmaster if you don't take care of this problem. Your service is horrendous. Lucia Daley

Terrible!! I've been trying to reach the Downey, CA main post office (Firestone Blvd) all day . Since 9am there has been no answer. Just automated operator telling me nobody is available. I call the 800 number and it's the same thing. After dealing with such terrible service it is easy to see why nobody ships via USPS anymore. I wish there were a way to give negative stars. For reliable customer service do not use the USPS. .

No PO will ever pick up the phone. EVER! Stand in line like everybody else. You should know by now that YOU are not special like mommy told you.

Completely agree with below. Why even list a phone number. No one picks up, even during business hours. I've even tried random extensions. I wish people wouldn't ship things with USPS - worst package delivery!

Along with the other reviews on here, it is frustrating that they don't pick up their phone. I have tried multiple times to make the required appointment over the phone to apply for a passport, but now answer. If an appointment is required and needs to be made over the phone, then they need a better system or someone who will actually pick up the phone.
