WHERE IS MY MAIL??? I left the carrier a note on June 20 to hold our mail for 1 week while we were out of town since the Hold mail service did not work. They held all mail and packages and I requested all of my mail to be Delivered on Saturday June 27. It's now Tuesday, June 30 and I still do not have my mail from last week? I've tried calling and get no answer. I will leave the carrier a note in the mailbox today asking about my mail. TRUST ME....YOU DO NOT WANT ME TO COME DOWN THERE! I am also calling customer service to see if they can track down my mail. This is beyond ridiculous!

6/5/2020 came home to find my lamp post/mailbox was hit. A person driving by told us that the mail man just ran into it! the mailbox door is completely bent to where it will not close and my lamp post attached to it is leaning. I called the post office and was on hold over 45 minutes! I want to know how we are going to be reimbursed for this damage. On my way home the mail truck was parked along the side of the road??? After seeing and hearing of what had happened I went to find the driver whom was on the side of the road and he was gone. Get back to me as soon as possible as to how you are going to repair or reimburse me for this damage-he/she didnt even leave a note---how very irresponsible to do such a thing and just drive away!!!

Tired of the postal worker leaving the door open on my mail box which makes the mail wet when it rains. this has been a problem for several months. My neighbors also are complaining. It should not be o.k. to leave it open especially when it is raining. That is a responsibility of the deliverer.Wish you would do something about it. Please!!!!

Pitiful service I’ve ever experienced missing two packages which is costly Would seem the post master would fix the deficiencies at this location or retire the entire neighborhood complains of packages and mail not received ! But then again !!!!!!!!!!!!

I have tracking that says my prescription was delivered a week ago to my mailbox, but it was not. Our postman constantly delivers mail to the wrong box, but Bessemer post office will not help find your package when it's delivered incorrectly. Is the only solution to move?

Bessemer Post office is literally the worst. I have not received mail for a week. When we do we receive mail it is just for that day. What happened to all the other mail that was not delivered. They certainly do not follow the PO motto of: neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow will keep us from our appointed rounds. they all need to be fired and start over again.

USPS is a joke in Bessemer or Shannon. When I asked for the postmaster I had a worker say no and that she was the postmaster in addition to that Bessemer Post Office has a fax number listed as a contact number and the unprofessional Postmaster in Shannon told me what I was sharing with her was irrelevant. Oh really. SSOB.

I also don’t get my mail until 7 or 8 at night. Saturday 9/30/17 I was suppose to get a package from amazon. At 8 o’clock amazon messaged my phone and stated delivery will have different delivery date. Then Sunday morning I got an email saying package was attempted to be delivered but couldn’t be. I would find notice and follow instructions. NO ONE tried to deliver anything!!!! I was home all day and my dogs bark like crazy when someone is outside! I got no mail at all that day. It also just happened that there were some big football games on at 5 and 8. Auburn and Alabama games. I feel the carrier was late again so just went home and didn’t finish route so they could watch game. I had to spend my morning today going online and rescheduling the deliver. I am very angry!! I have also had a few packages left at the wrong address. Thankfully the people brought the packages to me instead of keeping them. I get a lot of my groceries through amazon bc I am disabled and shopping and toting groceries is hard for me. I live at 7060 Pocahontas rd.

My mail didn't get delivered until 8:45 tonight and I was expecting an Amazon package. Received email from Amazon that delivery was attempted and I should find a notice from USPS with options. I was home and there was no attempted delivery. This is the 2nd time this has happened. I'm upset over the package and would like to know why we get our mail so late. And yes, there was mail but no package nor notice on delivery options!

Bessemer postal delivery to residential homes does not occur until 7-8pm on a daily basis. I call the post office and am told that a new carrier is trying to learn the mail route. What happened to training a person first, then letting them take over. Getting your mail between 7 and 8pm day after day is unacceptable. We never had this problem with our regular carrier, she was great.
