Hi I live at 1741 Wentworth Avenue and recently we have had any mail delivered. My neighbor spoke to mail person and they had been on vacation that day. I live in neighborhood with older people who depend on mail delivery. This has happened 1 day the past two weeks I am not sending this to get anyone in trouble maybe the post office needs to change our post office we come out of I know 21234 is a large area. I believe we are closer to the office off of CromwellBridge Thanks with help with this matter Judi

I moved my business July 31st and had a change of address July 17th. To this day I do not have any of my mail from Harford Road. Parkville had it Friday and said she would have to get in touch with the carrier. Does that mean they got all the mail to deliver to where I moved from, I think so. Now Tuesday the 14th of August still don't have it. I have to wait until they all come back from lunch to call them. Find out where Parkville put it since last Friday. This is a mess.

I have just moved on Temple Avenue and had packages set out directly at the top of the steps instead of pushed back on the porch with is long enough for packages to be out out of sight. Luckily I have gotten home within a few minutes of the delivery. Its happened at least 3 times. These tactics are unacceptable and downright lazy on the part of the postal service and seems to be worse here than in the city.

Today at 7:10 PM, a knock came on my door and there stood a young lady and a toddler informing me of the 'packages' that was "dumped" on my doorstep. She was NOT the mail carrier but a neighbor who was urged by another neighbor across the courtyard to let me know that it was witnessed that the packages were first left at 6800 Sturbridge Drive (next door neighbor), but my neighbor first "scolded" him about his laziness, he returned back to the packages to the CORRECT address, 6802 Sturbridge Drive. The mail carrier usually knocks on my door or rings the doorbell to alert me that there is a delivery--not this young man. Yesterday (6/25/18), I heard the creak of my screen door open, the young man (on his cell phone) 'dropped' both packages and a pouch on my doorstep looked at me as if waiting for me to pick up the packages (still on the phone/female voice on speaker asked "who are you talking to?") and fumbled with placing the mail in my regular mailbox. We have received mail as late as 8 PM or later--during clear weather! My neighbor across the courtyard was so infuriated at that young man and his disregard for efficient and courteous mail delivery, that she approached him about it and relayed to him and to me that he was going on report. The mail should have been secured between the screen and inside doors to avert theft, the elements, etc. I understood that the mail was to be delivered daily by 6 PM. I have an account with USPS and demand that the younger mail carriers be 'observed' by the lead/supervisory mail carriers--not letting them know of the observations until a designated time. I remember a favorite regular mail carrier stopping off for a "cigarette/beer" break, fell behind in his deliveries and promptly placed all of our mail--Soc. Sec. checks, utility bills, etc., down a nearby sewer drain! The complaints were justified...I demand total adherence to the rules of conduct and performance and careful service!!

When our regular carrier delivers mail from our house following her route - it takes her more than an hour before she arrives at the house acrossed the street - completing her circuit. Today there was a different carrier (5/30/18) who completed the circuit I just described in 1/2 hour. It is unusual for us not to get mail! Ask our regular carrier. It's like he stopped at every other house and just rushed through the route. I've been calling for the last hour. A recorded message tells me they are busy with other calls so call back because my call is important. Reading the reviews I doubt this is true. Is it true that this post office is the worst in MD?

How can we get the post office to stop delivering Old Harford Road mail to our Harford Road address? We have the same street number as a residence on Old Harford Road and for years we constantly receive their mail at our office on Harford Road. I have complained many times and always write in all caps OLD Harford Road. We have even received letters back that we have written OLD Harford Road on with dates of the previous deliveries.

Half the time they don't even bother delivering. Or they give me the wrong mail. Today they said they could not access the mail box!! The neighborhood has been shoveled out for hours and road plowed. They are about as lazy as lazy gets.

delivery is getting worse and worse...last night (1/29/18) mail was delivered @7:35 p.m. The past several weeks mail has been arriving between 4:00 & 5:00 p.m. (this is unusual). Some folks in Parkville have not received mail for two weeks...what's going on... staff problems??

I have never service like the Parkville post office. We don't have regular carrier our mail is delivered at night. I had a letter from my insurance company dated November11 2017 it arrived Jan 11 2018. They give my neighbors mail. I saw a carrier that used to deliver my mail he said that my route has too many steps. Why don't hire young people who like to exercise.

The Parkville PO is psychedelic. Whenever I mail anything, it takes months to arrive. Months!! I sent my niece Christmas money for the children. That check never arrived and had not been returned. I sent another check, certified from Oakland, CA on 12/28. This has been out for delivery since 01/02. What is the problem? People in the ghetto need their mail, promptly, too.

Parkville post office continues to have the worst service. I received no mail AT ALL for 3 days. The "informed delivery" is a joke. According to informed delivery, I was to receive my registration renewal LAST SATURDAY, still don't have it, one week later. Neighbor never received her registration. Mail is misdelivered, or not delivered. No regular mail carrier, mail delivered last night at 8 pm by a carrier with no bag. Repeated complaints and even a personal meeting with the PostMaster general do no good at all. Medical paperwork, social security information, bills, credit cards, greeting cards, never received. Late payments added to bills that were never received. I have been told that "no one wants this route", so I guess I just picked a bad place to live!!!

The postal carrier I now have has a very foul mouth. She was on her phone talking very loudly using language that was very inappropriate for any one to hear.

I do not understand how this service can be so awful. We all know your job isn't easy but many people out there have worse jobs! Please pick up the out going mail when you drop off mail, it is just one more step for better service. You just have to pick it up and bring it back with you. There is no reason why the government should be hiring such lazy and undedicated employees. You guys get all the government perks but you cannot even do your job to your best capability.

How about you guys stop putting packages out in the open when there is a HUGE porch that will hide what you leave... all you have to do is stop leaving them at the top of the steps where people can see them. Walk your behind up the steps and put them in a secure place... if you have no choice of location that's one thing but you being lazy isn't an excuse. You get a big attitude when we call complaining that a package is gone and take no responsibility for leaving it where all can see, it's never your fault. If you don't want to do your job properly then find another job. I don't want to hear about how you can't walk up everyone's steps... not everyone gets packages everyday and I have a delivery job that's 7 days a week, 365 a year and it's hand delivery to apartment doors so don't tell me about lots of steps. DO YOUR JOB RIGHT!

Why is it that we get wrong mail that's not even on our street. And why doesn't mail carrier take our out going mail. Took two days last week to get a letter pickup. Not our regular mailman either. We have a mailbox that has a flag on it when mail goes out but still don't get pickup. Plus we ask ,mail carriers not to walk on our grass. They Been told and sign on mailbox but still do it. Again our regular mail guy doesn't walk on grass and he does pick the outgoing mail plus delivery correct mail to our address. . Got three mail on 12 27 2017 not our street. Mail service is really getting worst by the day

The absolute worst customer service ever! The Asian woman behind the counter was rude, and ignorant! I did not go there to be lectured; post my package and keep your opinion to yourself! I have only heard terrible things about this office and now I see that they are true! The Post Master should be terminated and the employees retrained! Absolutely horrible experience!

WORST customer service ever. I went there last month to get a passport, the black woman at the counter was very rude and snippy to me, and then she LOCKED me in the building because she didnt look to see if anyone was still inside. Luckily I was able to get her attention before she drove off for lunch. I was mortified by her attitude and demeanor. My aunt works for the Post Office in Salisbury, shes a district manager and she said the Parkville location has the worst ratings in the ENTIRE state because they treat customers like crap.

This is so utterly rediculous in that I can not call my local post office direct to find out where my mail is. I put a hold while on vacation and said i will pick up my held mail when i returned. I went up this morning and waited fifteen minutes until the woman, who barel spoke English, told me they did not have my mail and that it was with the carrier and would be delivered to my address. Mail came and nothing was delivered. I specifically told the p.o. to hold my mail while I was away and that I WOULD pick it up when i returned today. I get a call answering service in the city and they take my info and send an email to my p.o. and I have to wait at least another day to find out where my mail is. Totally inefficient and no wonder your business is going under. I will never deal with you guys again! UPS/Fed X/Post Man Plus/
