This place is terrible. The staff members don't know what is going on. The older woman at the counter told me it wasn't her job and she was doing me a favor for doing my passport at which an argument ensued. The state department needs to take control of this office and take away this service from USPS. I would like to speak with the postmaster or a supervisor


Our mail gets delivered from this center, but I should add, SOMETIMES. We've had a steady stream of mail carriers throw our mail just anywhere in our (six-part, plainly marked) mail tower. I've contacted the USPS main office in Washington who had someone from this place call me and tried to blame us for the carrier's ineptness, but in the end I was told that they "would speak to the carriers." I'm sure that they did, because today I found everyone's mail in the rain getting wet on our porch - not in the mailbox. I wonder what kind of nonsense I'll get told this time?


Horrible service if you are getting your passport, I've been here for over 2 hours and the line is going out the door. Only one person working, I wouldn't recommend this postal service location.


OMG just got back from this horrible place. Please everyone needs to go to another place to get a passport. I'm still shaking. I walked in at 11:30 and the line was out the door. Children and adults. A women and man were the only ones issuing the passports. at 11:45 the man with the beard and dark hair went to lunch for 1 and 1/2 hours. Everyone was screaming on line. After a another 2 hour wait the man with the beard screamed at me when I had the wrong forms filled out. I was mortified! I left there shaking. I would like to speak to the post-master or his supervisor. Everyone in the post office was horrified. The line just never moved. Something needs to be done about this facility and man. I'm not letting this go.
