Telephone rings busy all day. Can't get ahold of anyone to talk to about a package not delivered.


This is the slackest post office around. Received new bank card so payment that was auto didn’t go through. Day after I seen it and took care of it. It’s been a week and box is still locked. It’s ridiculous dealing with these employees.


We are still scheduled for Mail on Saturdays. Saturday morning I put a letter to go out in my mailbox at 0700 and put the flag up. Mail does not usually get to my house until 1300 - 1400. Here it is Sunday and flag is still up. My neighbor also didn’t get a delivery which leads me to believe that the block was not serviced. If you are not going to be open, notice would appropriate. Consistently would be nice. I doubt if this will be addressed.


We subscribe to the Daily Record and have not received our paper since sometime in May. We live at 2275 NC Hwy 242 N in Benson and would like to have our paper! The paper contacted your office and were told that we had a new carrier. He can find us for all of our other mail. Why not for our paper!


I normally get my mail around 10:30 AM, however I haven't recieved my mail today. This is despite the other people on my street getting their mail. I know I'm supposed to be getting a game today that I ordered. This place sucks!!


Had a package tracking said its been delivered to Benson Post office on the 5th of Aug. I never received it. I reported it and staff acted like they were not concern.they took my phone # and said they would get back with me but never did. My package contain jewery and im almost 100% sure someone in that office h as stolen it. I need to be refunded. What can i do for justice?


Tracking service says my package was delivered to my mailbox. I never received it. It was small enough to fit in my mailbox and other mail was delivered that day. Since it has been scanned and reported as delivered to my address, company. Can't do anything about it. Now I'm out the $ and don't have my items! Postal worker said carrier would check other boxes on her route to see if she put it in the wrong box...its been a month. Filing report with police today for "stolen" Mail.


I was looking for my checks delivered by Clark Harland and they were delivered on June 9th. They were not in my PO box, so I called the postmaster And he assured me they were in my box. Dave,the postmaster was extremely rude and condescending and told me they were in my box. I arrived at the postoffice 30 minutes later And they were not in my box ! I asked to speak to hi and he was gone. He is NOT a very good representative for the post office or the town of Benson!!


The ladies at the front desk are extremely nice, but the carriers (at least the ones in our area) are horrible. I have started mailing packages out of Cary because I had numerous people NOT receiving them. They get there fine when I mail them from a different PO.
