The mailman is putting the mail in any one of the 3 locked boxes or it’s all over the floor in Watervliet . My mailbox is clearly labeled.


PLEASE MAKE SURE CARRIER PUTS MAIL IN RIGHT MAILBOX AT HANRATTA APTS IN WATERVLIET. I have informed mail n what showed was not in my mailbox. But.. I had 4 pieces of mail that did not belong to me and mine not there. WHATS UP WITH THAT? If this carrier worked for UPS.. they would of been fired by now. Happens all the time with ghe mail recently

Call them and no one ever answer s been waiting on meds to be delivered for 8 days nothing


Watervliet post office is aweful. I have already spoke to post master who was absolutely no help. At least 3 times a week i receive the wrong mail. I order things and they never come including bank debit card. It is a shame the response i got is maybe if something is important you should insure it.


I just want to make a complaint for Van Rensselaer Village for the past two weeks or so we've had a new mail person up here and at least three times a week my mail and I know as well as other people's mail are going in the wrong box every box is numbered with an apartment letter and most of us even have return addresses our names Inside the Box it's very disconcerning especially when some of us receive checks by mail and other important mail I don't know how hard it is to put the mail in the right box or how you can put one right piece of mail in the box and then put three wrong pieces in another person's box I would like this problem to be addressed thank you


I ordered a gift from England and when it was received in New York, a USPS label associated with Watervliet, New York was placed on the box instead of a label associated with Manville, Rhode Island. I did not figure this out until my package twice was received in Providence, RI and sent to Watervliet. On two occasions I called the Waterevliet Post Office and questioned them about my package. Your staff were very professional and reassured me that they would pull the package and investigate. During call two, the employee pulled the package and saw my Rhode Island address and immediately realized the problem and suggested a solution. The bar code was partially obstructed so that a postal employee would have to physically examine the address in Providence and send package to Manville. In this crazy era we live in, I want you to know that you have an excellent staff working in your office that knows how to take a upset user and turn him into a positive satisfied employee. Very nice job. John Hall, Manville, Rhode Island.
