I have been going to this post office to get my mail for 2 years now, and every time I go in, it is the worst experience I’ve ever had in any establishment or customer-service situation. Curt is extremely rude, inconsiderate, and sometimes downright mean. He consistently tell me my packages are not at the post office despite a package slip having been delivered to my home, only to find it after 4 attempts looking and wasted time arguing with this disrespectful person. One time I was attempting to carry out my newborn and a huge package to the car and one of the other female employees asked if he could help me out (since he was just standing in the back, not looking too busy) and he said in the rudest tone “uh, my arm hurts so no” and walked away. Having to go to this post office has been so bad, it makes me want to move to a Carbondale, as their staff is lovely and efficient. Please do something to remedy this problem, it is an embarrassment to this great town.
This is the most inefficient post office I've ever visited. No one answers the phone and when they do, they are unprofessional and rude. I've also been hung up on multiple times. Even the Postmaster could do with some customer service lessons...SAD!
I don't live in Glenwood, so this is not my usual branch, but had to go there to get a passport application processed. To cut a very long story short, the passport was not executed properly the first time by the agent at the post office, resulting in me having to return there a month later after receiving a letter from the US Passport agency stating the Glenwood Post Office hadn't done their job properly and I needed to complete ANOTHER application. Good job I wasn't in a hurry for my passport because this was four weeks wasted. Lesson learned, I will never use Glenwood Post Office for passport services again. I'd drive to Denver before I'd do that, they're that bad!!
Apparently you have to make an appointment to renew your passport. But they don't really answer the phone. I tried and tried and tried. So I went in and low and behold, you have to make an appointment for passports. Should there be an app for that? Or a website?
I have found the PO staff to be extremely kind and willing to help - I make regular business runs - sometimes with questions or needing assistance. I hardly ever go where I don't have to wait in line, and they are always greeting each and every customer with a smile or kind word. One of the most difficult jobs is dealing with the public, and it's nice to see the PO in New Castle and Glenwood so good at what they do. Keep it up!
After calling with a very simple problem I was treated extremely harsh by the employee answering the phone. What was a 15 second solution could of been handled at the least with polite quickness, instead the individual felt the need to be rude and dismiss my concerns immediately. Worst customer service experience I've had in a very long time.
