Not sure about all the complaints i just read in this site. the post office is busy and i believe everyone there is doing a great job mistakes happen but overall i get great service and am happy to say so! Way to go guys!!!!


Arlene is amazing. Love her attention to caring for our mail and packages. Please know she is exceptional at her job. I hope we have her forever!


Given that the Republicans in Congress keep gutting the funding for the USPS, it's no wonder that the phone is always busy, the phone lines don't even connect to anything or anyone and services are limited at every USPS location including this one.


This is a letter of recommendation for Colleen Poulos. She has been our mail carrier for many years. Her service has been remarkable for its promptness & accuracy. She has also been a friend. She is truly a fantastic representative of the USPS.


I second that recommendation for Colleen. She is dear person , too .

Spoke with Kerri (I think) and she took care of everything for me within minuets. I was expecting so much less because of the comments below and the difficulty of the situation but I had a great experience.


Your delivery driver sucks. took my signed delivery confirmation signature card but did not leave my package.


Your customer service sucks. Can't ever get through. Your phone is always busy. You need a new phone system to take calls. It's pathetic.


I have not received any mail for 4 business days... No junk mail, nothing! I tried to call, but can't get through. Something is definitely wrong here.


the service provided by our mailman is horrible!! Almost everyday we get our neighbors mail and our mail goes to others. This results in major problems!!


this post office is a joke! I've been complaining for over a year! with no results. still get miss delivered mail, late mail, lost mail!


Your phone 760-753-1415 is constantly busy as is your 800 number
