Today I was at the Paulison ave office in Clifton NJ. The lady who attended me for my son's passport was very rude to attend, she behaved the same with another client, it is very bad that they have such a rude person attending clients

How can you run a Post Office Passport Office with one person attending, 10 workers in the back office and 20 people waiting to be served. When you try to call for an appointment to renew a passport the computer always answer they have technical difficulties. And you people wanted to know why UPS, Federal express, DHL it took all your customers way.

The staff and postmaster here are incompetent ! My mail has stopped for almost one month but they tell me it is still being delivered to my former address! NO mail since August 5 , 2020 ! Absurd and causing problems with courts and bill payments ! Can't get an honest answer from anyone at the 811 office !

This P.O. is very under staffed and the employees are rude,unprofessional and yeah overworked.Over 8 hours wait to get service which is totally unacceptable. Families with kids come here to get passports done, waa waiting over 7 hrs and no restrooms. Post Master general need to review staff requirement especially on Saturdays

TERRIBLE EXPIRIENCE They made me shaking. The worst place ever. Manager is irresponsible, yells on customers. He should be at different position, a janitor for example. They sent my package to destroy after 5 business days of being there for pick up. But carrier wrote wrong address (1114 main ave, clifton) for pick up on notice. The stupidest situation. I lost is $399 in value and about $30 of all mighty USPS's fees. "You pay - We lost" USPS

terrible service--trump is right--the usps sucks!!! I'm 73--50 yrs ago the usps had integrity--now none at all--out for delivery is meaningless--it means now or in 2 or 3 days--service was better 50 yrs ago--now it stinks--like the rest of the country=service stinks--pure and simple!

This place is terrible. The staff members don't know what is going on. The older woman at the counter told me it wasn't her job and she was doing me a favor for doing my passport at which an argument ensued. The state department needs to take control of this office and take away this service from USPS. I would like to speak with the postmaster or a supervisor

Our mail gets delivered from this center, but I should add, SOMETIMES. We've had a steady stream of mail carriers throw our mail just anywhere in our (six-part, plainly marked) mail tower. I've contacted the USPS main office in Washington who had someone from this place call me and tried to blame us for the carrier's ineptness, but in the end I was told that they "would speak to the carriers." I'm sure that they did, because today I found everyone's mail in the rain getting wet on our porch - not in the mailbox. I wonder what kind of nonsense I'll get told this time?

Horrible service if you are getting your passport, I've been here for over 2 hours and the line is going out the door. Only one person working, I wouldn't recommend this postal service location.

OMG just got back from this horrible place. Please everyone needs to go to another place to get a passport. I'm still shaking. I walked in at 11:30 and the line was out the door. Children and adults. A women and man were the only ones issuing the passports. at 11:45 the man with the beard and dark hair went to lunch for 1 and 1/2 hours. Everyone was screaming on line. After a another 2 hour wait the man with the beard screamed at me when I had the wrong forms filled out. I was mortified! I left there shaking. I would like to speak to the post-master or his supervisor. Everyone in the post office was horrified. The line just never moved. Something needs to be done about this facility and man. I'm not letting this go.
