Hi I put a change of address in 4 months ago and today I get a call from my Dr's office the lab slips they sent me were sent back as I had moved - I am at the same address but a different unit number and I thought a change of address goes into effect for 6 months??? Also my roommate is concerned that the IRS was not notified as stated that the USPS is supposed to do with any change of address??? And he needs his stimulus check what is going on with your post office this is not the 1st time we have had problems with this change of address- i was notified that a package was delivered to my box and I never received this expensive purchase - is our maillady smoking Crack !!!!
I live on Indian Hills Ct in Bardmoor north Seminole.
We have a new postman. I do not know his name. I know that you will be able to figure out who our mail person is as I have put in our address. But, he is not very good at doing the mail. I have just received my second envelope that has been bent and shoved into the mail box. The first envelope ruined an antique family picture frame. The second envelope came from a business, I ordered on line. The envelope says priority on the envelope. I do not understand why this man has to jam envelopes into the mailbox. He bends and pushes them in to make them fit. Our other mail person did not do this. I have never had a mail person bend and push envelopes in to a mail box to make them fit.
I have talked to him about not doing this. Obviously it did not help. Please someone, anyone please talk to this postman.
Wow, the only reason I came to this site is to see when was the last pick up time for the Seminole post office. I saw all these complaints, and we must have the most amazing mail person, we live in Holiday Village, and she is consistent in the times she come, only once have we ever got our neighbors mail, and the box is always closed, and she's always courteous . Thank you Seminole post office ! 😊
Our mailman or mailperson ( a female ) is sitting in front of peoples homes on her phone . It would be nice for her to deliver mail insread of being on the phone . It's against the law to be on the and driving at the same time .
Hmmmm “After weeks of railing against online shopping giant Amazon, President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday creating a task force to study the United States Postal Service.
In the surprise move, Trump said that USPS is on "an unsustainable financial path" and "must be restructured to prevent a taxpayer-funded bailout."
Today I went the Seminole Post Office and one of my goals was to get a check cashed…a check sent to by the USPS. For some reason the check did not include my name—just “NA”…but it had my address.
Since the “NA” raised a red flag I asked to see the Supervisor. She was GREAT---explained to me how even tho this was a USPS check and that this was a USPS office and she was a USPS Supervisor…this was MY problem to solve. Did she offer to call her supervisor? NOPE. Did she say “Let me make a phone call. We’ll figure this out.” NOPE. I was going to have be an upaid volunteer for the USPS and resolve their error myself.
Since that didn’t sit well I asked to speak with her Supervisor [since she chose NOT to ask for another opinion]. Well…once again I was going to have solve the USPS problem---this supervisor also couldn’t find a way to call anyone---maybe HIS supervisor? Both supervisors seemed to want to nothing to do with this and showed ZERO INITIATIVE [presumably that’s why the supervise instead of working for a living!].
So I asked for the name and location of HIS supervisor. She’s up in Largo--- that will be Thursdays job.
I presume she will be more capable at conflict resolution and will find a way to get this check cashed.
And while Im there Im getting names of the Supervisors from this [Seminole] office--- this needs to go on the USPS Facebook page. Presumably the supervisor in Largo will ensure a satisfactory solution----and spare everyone being mentioned by name in my recounting of this ridiculous and unnecessary incident!
I wish I could have gotten away with this kind of behavior when I worked at two County governments in Florida. But we were taught to SOLVE problems—not exacerbate them!!
and to think...my business ships ~$7000 per year worth of stuff thru THIS OFFICE ALONE...and has for 4 years; throw in the amount of stuff that comes to me via this office.....hmmm....doesnt the United Parcel Service deliver packages? This office would NEVER miss my paltry $7k.....and i could ask my shippers to use UPS....
Well today I went to the Largo main branch to try and cash a USPS check that neither of two supervisors at the Seminole branch would touch---as noted above, USPS mistake wasnt the USPS's problem to resolve it was mine.
Fortunately, the Largo Branch has Ms Beverly Yates as the Supervisor--and she was right up front---working for a living!
Ms Yates gave "fast food" a bad name---after confirming my address was identical to that on check she personally approved payment.
Ms Yates EXEMPLIFIED what Customer Service issupposed to be. Perhaps she should offer a training course for the "pass the buck" individuals pretending to be supervisors at seminole!!
Thank you so very much Ms Yates!!!

I changed my mailing adrress to a PO Box, my mail is not being delivered to my PO Box or my physical address. I am getting phone calls an emails that my bills are past due. Post Office in Seminole why are you not forwarding my mail to my PO Box. If i have paid for a PO Box I should be able to use it.
Large brown envelope posted last week of January to T F Osmand Entrega General Estafita 1011 0067 Chame Republic of Panama which still has not been delivered. I was served my Mike and also posted a parcel of baby clothes to Ireland
I mailed a father's day card recently and while at the post office the clerk told me it needed to be "hand sorted" because it felt like it had something attached to the card that may cause problems with machine sorting. She marked it "HS" for hand sort and that was the last I saw of it and my father did not receive it. The card was heavy and did have a medallion attached to it that may have felt like a piece of jewelry. I have sent my father man many cards over the past 55 years and this is the first time this has happened. I usually place a few dollars in with the card as a token gift and it has always arrived. Not accusing the PO of theft nor this location however the "hand sort" is suspect and probably tempting to some. The money is not the issue. Its the integrity of the PO system and personnel. I am disappointed that my father did not receive his card and at 93 he was disappointed as well until I contacted him and inquired about the card.
Our carrier delivered one side of the street, sat at the end of the road for an hour and then took off leaving the other side of the street unserviced. Nobody answered the phone when we called the local office to find out where our mail was. Pretty disappointing for people whose checks get mailed to them on Friday
Our mail service has not been very reliable lately. Today a neighbor 2 houses away brought me my package. Last week I received my neighbor's mail & could not find where mine had gone. This week the mailman picked up letters from my mailbox to be mailed, searched in his truck for a while, made a u-turn & went back down the street. I didn't receive any mail that day either. I'm just concerned that I may not be receiving all of my mail.
I mailed a letter March 9th. It went to my bank only they have not received it. The 33772 office rings busy 24 hours a day. I want someone to help me to locate my check. You have a very bad office personnel who you can not reach. Phone 7272906013
we do not get mail delivered regularly. When my parents in Ohio send it I never get it. Their post office said it was on this end. I also cannot get anyone to answer the phone at Seminole PO. It goes automatically to busy signal. No message, no recording, to ringing. NOTHING. The delivery person states my address does not exist, yet I do get mail sometimes. I don't know how to get help.
I filled out forwarding address card and I've been trying to get package forwarded from Seminole PO since Dec 2. Package has been to Ohio, Pennsylvania and now back in Seminole. Still waiting for package to be delivered to Ohio address. Don't understand why simple directions can't be followed.
Our mail carrier determined that our house was vacant and stopped delivering mail. Idk what gave him that idea besides the cars, lights, trash cans. I have 3 jobs and now have to take off work to get get my mail, and am I ever going to see that $ again, nope. I am so beyond furious I can't see straight. Doesn't matter talking to them. I have never received such piss poor service in my entire life. I can't wait to move.
This post office delivers mail to me. I have experienced some of the most damaged mail I have ever seen. They continuously shove things into the mail box that do not fit. They often rip and tear envelopes, and packaging. The stuff things into my mailbox that come out in a wadded up ball. Most of the time the ball of paper is just ads, and coupons. I don't ever really ask for all the ads and coupons, however they come anyway. I find it appalling to destroy other mail, because they seem mad at the world about delivering junk mail. The other thing worth mentioning; I have lived here in this area now for 8 years. Not once have I received my mail service the same time two days in a row. They seem to come and go when they please. I'm not even speaking of an hour our two hour difference. This is a vast difference from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and any time in between. I live in a large apartment complex. When I first moved in I noticed a "no parking, postal service only from 10-3". I thought that was a very large time span to allow delivery. No they have just painted white paint over the sign and wrote with permanent marker, "10-6". It is very frustrating to not have dependable delivery. I can never make a plan based on any payment or checks I should receive in the mail, as I don't know if they will even arrive before the bank closes. And if they arrive prior to bank close, it will most likely be after the bank has changed to the following business day for processing. I can't believe how terrible the service is provided. I would guess this is why the USPS is going out of business basically and keeps reducing their staff. I myself will stick with FedEx. Or the always convenient and easy e-mail.
I just moved into a house that we are renting. We got this nice little note in our mailbox that says "List All Names To Receive Mail". Now I've lived in Florida 30 years and have never had one of these at any house I've EVER lived in. Written on it says "No Names = No mail" and the thank you is crossed out on the bottom of the form. It wants me to write ALL the names of who may receive mail here and the address and stick it back in the mailbox. Is this even legal? Do I HAVE to fill this out. In my opinion it's none of their darn business and this form was just RUDE.
Dana, It's not rocket science. And yes it is perfectly legal.
If you last name is Williams, they will only deliver mail addressed to Williams. They make a note in the sorting office and also in your mail box. Think of it as a last check to ensure a temp delivery guy gets the right mail in the right box. It also stops you getting mail for Brown, which would cause you to freak out and complain on this Non US Postal website.
Your name & address is public record (as you'll find out at election time)
Just because they didn't ask you 30 years ago, doesn't mean they can't ask you today, and think of it as betterment.
if this is all that you have to complain about, chill out and relax before you Stroke out.

Was waiting on a package, found out that it was delivered to the incorrect address, came to the post office was told that all of the supervisors were busy & that it might take up to 20 or 30 minutes for a supervisor to see me!!!
Gosh, shock, horror. You had to wait to see a supervisor, awww poor you. Think of it this way. He/She was busy working doing something important, rather sat in an office doing sweet FA waiting for you to complain. Or where you expecting them to drop everything and rush over to you. And what would your complaining to them, having to listen to you whine for at least 10 mins plus another 10 for making you wait. When what's done is done, mistakes are made, they handle millions of pieces of mail a day, one or two a likely to get misplaced. You complain to make yourself feel better, not a supervisor that had nothing to do with the error feel crappy and offer a fake apology for you to come running back here and whine all over again.

Tried to call post office and No Answer. Wanted to complain about the service I have been receiving as well as my neighbors. We use to have a Great postal person Dan, and he retired. These young kids do not care how they deliver mail or they cannot read addresses. I mailed my rent check on November 25, my landlord never received it. My neighbor mailed 3 bills on November 25, and she incurred late fees because they never received her payments. I just had my neighbor bring me a letter from the IRS that was very important information I needed. The address Clearly states my correct address. I swear these younger people just don't care!!!!!
The worst postal service I have ever confronted in my entire life. I made a phone call to the office stating I did not want them spamming me with junk mail the way they do and they said they did not care and that I have no property rights. They will send whatever they feel like if it's addressed to my address. Which is a form of solicitation. In the United States constitution it states each and every citizen has a right to own property. I believe it's being more than infringed upon with these people stating we haven't any rights regarding what gets sent to OUR PROPERTY. Despicable human beings. The manager was whom I spoke with on the phone and he was rude as can be and then hung up on me.
Jens, The PO does not have the power to censor your mail for you. They have their work cut out for them. If each citizen like you and me started to instruct them on how to handle our mail, even if they were allowed to selectively reject or accept mail on our behalf (which they are not), they would need to increase their staff a great deal. The way you avoid junk mail is by contacting the sender.

The correct way to stop soliciatations by mail is to register online (they have snail mail options too) at www.consumer.ftc.gov You can stop unsolicited phone calls, emails as well as the snail mail. Good luck

I was at this post office this morning, where I received very cold and robotic service. The employees here look miserable and seem like they are annoyed to be interacting with customers. Let's change this demeanor please, there are plenty of people who would kill to have your job and actually smile about it.
