I have lived in Johnston for a year. I live in a complex with letter size mailbox’s. I have had several issues with my postal carrier so I went into the branch and explained my concern. No one cared about the complaint. Things have continued to escalate. I continue to receive my neighbors mail which is clearly marked with her name and house number. Attached to all of her mail and none of mine is a note from the carrier telling me this is my final notice. The mail carrier is rude and always on his cell phone. Packages that would not fit in my box are taken back to the post office and no pick up notice is ever left.


I called earlier today and when I finally got through I told the postal worker what my problem was. She placed me on hold and never picked up again.


Johnston post office is not like it was years ago. No one ever answers the phone. It just rings and rings. Sometimes they just put it off the hook and you get a busy signal for hours. Today was suppose to get my social security check. I get it every month on the 3rd. New post man. Put it in someone else's box. No answer at the post office. I had to go down there. They said someone would get back to me by 5 pm when they close. Well they are closed now . No phone call. The phone is off the hook as always. No good customer care. They should fire all of them. Drain that swamp too...


These guys suck. Get everybody's mail in my neighborhood in my box. Complained several times. Keeps happening. Certified mail comes to my house and all I get is a slip saying they missed me. Too lazy to get out of the truck and knock on my door. Now I have to find time out of my busy day to get to the post office. Get to the the post office and they tell me the letter is out for delivery. Complete and total incompetence. Disgusted.


I live in Johnston RI. My mail keep going missing on numerous occasions. I want to give people about the benefit of the doubt too often I am expecting mail and they never show. I am forced to use my work address now because of it. Something is not right with this.


Worst experience ever!!!!!! I called the Johnston post office and the lady helping me (not really) by the name of Melissa was so RUDE. She was pretty much yelling at me the whole time. Who does this lady think she is?!


Well, I live in Johnston, RI, and put mail out this morning at 6:30AM before going to work. Arrived home at 4PM and voila the mail is still waiting to be picked up! Called the Johnston post office several times and go figure the phone just rings and rings and rings. I have also previously had the door left open in the rain and all the mail inside the box is wet! Come on, I sometimes don't like doing what I do, but being an RN, I can't just tell my patients sorry, can't get to you today!


Just bought a house in Johnston that has a mailbox at the door. Mail man delivered our first mail and asked that we switch to a street pole within the week. He never said he would hold our mail until we switched over. We went without mail for two weeks where we found out it was all on hold until the switch was made. They allowed the door box for an older women but won't allow it for a disabled veteran. Trying to get a hold of Bob (the supervisor at the Johnston location) is IMPOSSIBLE, whenever we call or go in he is never there. This is very upsetting because seeing we just purchased the home, we are waiting for all important mail- all that is being held from us due to laziness. I understand they have certain requirements but when they don't communicate things properly it only makes things worse. Plus the next door neighbors all have one at the door and not the street.... Weird how some rules only apply to some. But again, it's impossible to discuss this with BOB because he's never at work. If only these guys weren't so lazy to walk an extra 30 feet to the door maybe this wouldn't be an issue.


Hello everyone, I'm fed up with Johnston Post Office, two times in the past three months, I complain to two managers at Johnston Post Office, there's nothing wrong with my mail box, the door closes properly, the delivery personnel do not care if your mail is secure in the mail box, look where I found a very important income tax document, thank you Johnston Post Office for doing a responsible job, I know few people are looking for work and will like the job and do it right!
