This post office needs new employees !!! They are discourteous and tend to continuously loose mail with out a bit of remorse.. They act like your time is not valuable and are unable to make or keep timed appointments. Maybe they feel their salary is not adequate for the tasks they perform and as a result do not perform to the best of their ability, which I feel is grounds for termination... There are plenty of people looking for jobs whom wouldn't mind putting their best foot forward to accommodate the public.....


AMAZING SERVICE!!! best experience with USPS.. like ever.


waited 2 months for a passport appointment, got there early with our infant waited another 1hr 15 min to get seen. then 5 weeks later no passport. We submitted it the 24th and the passport agency did not receive it until the 30th! Thank you for Ruining our summer!!!!


I am disappointed that a priority mail package scheduled to take two days took a week to arrive at its final destination. (No. Virginia to Charlottesville)


I have had similar experiences at this particular branch and only go there when it is absolutely necessary. Have often rec'd pieces of mail that were incorrectly sorted at this store. There is a problem here fro sure.


This place... Had an appointment for a passport at a 11
(granted didn't show up until 1102 so I wasn't early or anything) and then I
was told that they would get to me in just a minute even though no one was in
the post office. So after waiting 25 minutes I see a guy walk up and get his
passport stuff started by the lady that told me to wait. A little peeved, I go
back to the waiting area and after she gets this guys stuff and answers some of
his questions about the application, it's finally my turn in line. She asks for
my stuff which I have all of and then asks for the photo. I told her the guy I
scheduled with said it can be done here.
To which she said "They won't do it here anymore and that I need to
go get a picture at the local CVS". This post office does not do photos.
Trying not to be that angry jerk customers service people have deal with, I
just politely except my fate and make my way over to CVS and get all that done.
So I go back, get all the way done and ask if the lack of info on my parents
might be an issue (I have their DOB but not the location) and she tells me
"She isn't allowed to help me out in filling out my paperwork". Tell
her I'm not asking for help, just want to know if this is going to be an issue.
Same response, in the same repugnant tone she kept using this whole time. I
really am being nice this whole transaction. She'll be dealing with my passport
and I'm sure she can easily just lose my stuff. So in the end I thank her and yell
in my car out of pure anger and frustration. I am typically pretty hard to
emotionally rattle over these things, especially since I get that maybe they
are having a bad day or something and me making it worse isn't going to help
anything. But I haven't wanted to yell at someone like that in a long, long
time. So best of luck or pick another place if you can.
