The mail has not been delivered in our neighborhood in weeks. We have bills and other important documents that we have not received. It all started when our regular mail carrier announced to me that he was being moved to another route and no one would be replacing him. This feels like a campaign led by the current Postmaster General to destroy the reputation of the USPS so it can be privatized. How do we get rid of this guy? But more pressingly, how do we get our mail delivered?

I should have had two pkgs delivered yesterday, plug shows being delivered, I was home all day and pkgs were not delivered. There seems to be a problem with deliveries in my area. Mail is being delivered haphazardly some days not at all. My address is 5605 West 64th Street, Los Angeles CA 90056. I am very disappointed with the service or lack of service.

Been a month and still no package. Seller sent through Priority Mail from NC to Fresno, Ca. and been stuck at the L.A. USPS Distribution Center for almost a month now! Filed a complaint and missing mail, USPS replied they "received my complaint" but basically we all know what it means....."YOU'LL GET IT WHEN YOU GET IT!!!!" Hope seller will refund for now until I get the package, which I highly doubt!

I have been tracking a package that I have been waiting on. This package was supposed to be delivered on 3/25/2021. When I went to track again, it says that it is on its way to the next facility. Had my local post office track this as well and they said that it is still at the LA distribution center. Where is this package and when should I expect to receive it? LY68 5161 395C NIn Transit. This is all I am able to get out of the tracking. Please let me know when I will be getting this package. If anyone else may know how I can reach a representative please let me know. Thanks.

The USPS is worthless. You can no longer PAY to send a letter or package and expect that it will arrive at its destination on time or even in a reasonable amount of time. Tracking a package is useless because the information is not updated and you can't get any information other than "it's delayed" The employees are rude and unprofessional and lack the work ethic of postal employees from long ago. I'm done with the USPS and I can understand why companies like American Express are dropping the postal service as their method of mail delivery.

On 02/19/2021 at approximately 3:00 pm one of your drivers completely passed a stop sign and made me slam on my brakes. Two blocks down he passed another stop sign without even stoping. He was also driving with his airpods on which probably explains why the fool wasn't paying attention to the street signs or heard my warning honk to alert him I was there. Keep in mind he did all this literally a block away from the post office on Verona Street and Woods Avenue. Those streets are in a residential area where there could have been children crossing or any innocent person walking. The truck had a number located on the back (7532320) I hope this helps locate the driver and give him proper training on safe driving.

I'm on the 2200 block of 29th Place. On Tuesday January 5, 2021 I left a return package for the mail person to pick up and today it's still sitting on my porch by the mailbox. My regular mail person is on vacation. Whenever this replacement person is on this route we have problems with the mail services. I'm going to wait for the mail person tomorrow and hand deliver it so it gets returned to the department store before I get charged late fees. This is crazy 3 days and counting.

I mailed a First Class Mail Int'l Flat-GAP envelope out of Oregon on Dec 14, 2020, and it arrived on Dec 19, 2020 at the Los Angeles Ca International distribution Center - Tracking # UM603156136US - and it is still there today, Jan 7, 2021. Email inquiries aren't answered and Customer Svc phone calls (automated, not live person) says they can't track. What is status of my envelope and when can I expect it to reach destination in Vancouver, B.C.? Thank you.

Management must resolve the wait time for mail pick ups at this location. For the past several months, the persons responsible for working this counter doesn't arrive until 20 to 30 minutes after the business is open. Also, there's always 2 to 3 persons working the at the purchasing counters, but always, only one person working the pick up counter. My wait time each visit is usually 45 to 90 minutes. With COVID 19 being an issue, they need to have several persons working this counter to move people out quickly as this line usually has more people in for business than the line for purchases.

Just wanted to compliment one of the postal employees who took extra time to help me yesterday. Her name is Lena, and she w1orks at the LA office, Main Call Center. I used a self-service kiosk to mail some package items. I accidentally got the postage and tracking numbers mixed up and then I didn't know what postage/track # went with what package. Lena stayed on the phone with me and patiently read the three tracking numbers back to me so I could figure out what package went with what postage. She helped me straighten it all out. Just wanted to let know know about her assistance. BIG HELP! I know the post office gets slammed a lot, but I rely on them every day, and for the most part (just a couple of glitches over the years) they never let me down. Thank you for the good service and kudos to Lean for her time and patience.

We mailed our package from San Diego to Arkansas August 24, 2020. Last notification was it was in transit in August 29, 2020. We insured it for $1000 since we have had this kind of problem before. We are told we have to file a claim before 60 days or lose it completely. USPS Customer Service says its in the Los Angeles Network Distribution Center which has an unknown address. If anyone knows how to find this center please tell us. We will pick the package up and take it ourselves.

I have tracked the package that has been sitting in this post office for a month, why is that? I also have read the reviews that post office has terrible reviews and a lot of them there are no positive reviews there! Why is it that United States Post offices and taking care of this problem? I have called the US Postal Service multiple times about my problem and it is not getting resolved! This Is the United States Post office, so fix the problem! This is Ridiculous,I have a very expensive package that’s been sitting there for a month and I want my package! I would hope I would get a response from this but probably not! I am not a satisfied customer! Melanie Chiappone

The LA's Postal Office do not hire qualified mailmen, because they lack knowledge. Mailmen simply can not read or understand English language, even the numbers. They always deliver my letters to my neighbor. Besides, those mailmen are always on their cell phones. If you ask any question, they will avoid a person. Mailmen are lacking knowledge and humanity.

Hi. Postal Office do not hire educated people as a mailmen. Those mailmen have no knowledge of simply reading an English language, even the numbers. They deliver my letters to my neighbor, who later delivers those letters to me. Those mailmen are always on their cell phones talking.

How cold hearted can the employees of the USPS be? I sent my son, who is newly paralyzed from the waist down and is in 90028, comics and books to read during the pandemic. Someone at the USPS LA removed all the books and comics and repackaged a single trophy in a new package so it would show delivered. I will never ever send a package via the USPS.

My local p.o. is at 7035 Laurel Canyon Blvd., North Hollywood. Every Tuesday I get the ads from local stores. Last week I got them on Thurs. and so far none this week. This is an inconvenience, but also it is fraud on the part of the p.o. I'm sure the p.o. gets paid to deliver these ads. I was told if there was a lot of mail they don't deliver them. What else don't they bother to deliver? Not reasonable service.
