SERVICE IS TERRIBLE ! we have not had a regular mail carrier in my neighbourhood for quite a while...2-3 years at least. I DO NOT receive all of my mail, especially bills. this causes me to have to pay late fees. the postmaster at 70053 is NOT DOING THEIR JOB


Dear Madam/Sir Gretna la 70056. It has been many weeks, Where we ( When I say We I mean my Neighbors) I have NOT Received Any Mail.. There are times I have attached a letter on my mail box, Just to know if, Our mail carrier, have came or Not.. I have received others mail, And My mail, is No where to be found.. I have a small packages With a Tracking Number..It says it will be delivered Friday Nov, 24.. And as always.. I have Not seen a Mail truck in the Neighborhood.. Many of my Neighbors has also notice the trend, Many has Complained.But Nothing has Improved.. I understand a mail carrier is Not late, just as long as it is before 8pm. What is it when Neighborhoods Do No Receive Mail for Days...


I haven't seen the mail man are lady for two days wounder if they no longer bring mail to your home i try calling but no one picks up the phone try allot calling no pickup so maybe no workers are they just don't give a crap


Very poor customer service! Please do not complain about your co-workers while helping a customer........


Contacted office during business hours no answer; need package for an event scheduled tomorrow. Tracking shows Gretna Post Office had item since May 6, 2017


No one wants to answer the phone. Trying to get more information about Passport. I am call between the office hours but no answer (twice).


The best mail man to work in my area is named Charlie. He's the regular mail man for my neighborhood and delivers my packages correctly with integrity and DOES NOT THROW MY PACKAGES like the other mail men that deliver in my area. Charlie deserves a raise for doing his job properly and never letting negativity affect his job performance.


it seems impossible to get any useful information on your site or a human by phone, this is one of the worst services I have ever had with a company in my entire life


They never answer the phone, they have lost 2 $100 packages of mine and they don't care they are rude and most of them do not know what they are doing. How they are allowed to lose your packages that you paid for is beyond me.


thanks for the great work!
